WalkingGreat!

Both Beaulieu and Bucklands are just a little gems highly recommended if you haven’t been. However the route is very busy, we left early but on the way back it was quite busy

Well signposted path, not muddy, glimpses of the river through the woods for most of the walk until you get to Bucklers Hard

The trail is part closed and you can’t walk along the river, but the alternative path is lovely too through the trees! We took a bit of a wrong turn and followed the cycle route instead of footpath towards the end and it added some road walking. We were disappointed the pub in Bucklers Hard wouldn’t serve drinks unless we were eating, and also stopped serving food at 2 - be warned!

HikingGreat!

A little more agricultural after the coastal walk of #1. Lots of wildlife and livestock but maybe a little too much road walking (although lovely country roads)

What a disappointment. We only walked half the trail as the information on this site said you could walk along the river edge or the woodlands, however the river walk was actually closed to allow re growth (fair enough). This left just a gravel path with some underwhelming fields and woodland.

A lovely and easy walk. The riverside walk is shut for conservation purposes, which means that the walk does not provide that many views onto the river. It's still very pleasant and worth it. We did it on a Sunday morning and it was getting busy towards the end.

Although the riverside walk was closed due to erosion, Beaulieu, Buckler’s Hard and the main path in between were absolutely worth our time. It can get busy though, so be patient.
