Leave the CL by the gate and you are out onto the New Forest – hundreds of acres to roam at will.
You can walk most anywhere as long as you don’t enter obvious farm land or climb any fences. You’ll find that as soon as you get a few hundred yards from the car parks the only company you have will be the Ponies.
We have a map which you can have a copy of – it show the paths and the pubs.
Gorley Common is close by
– here’s a good walk.
