New Forest Food Trails

We have fantastic New Forest food trails for you to walk to get to know a few of our quaint villages. Want some fresh sea air then walk the Milford on Sea food trail, or head inland on the Beaulieu food trail to explore the village and riverside walk to Bucklers Hard. Or walk the Burley food trail for a perfect forest location.

The New Forest Food Trails have been designed for you to enjoy two of the best things about the forest all at once - the environment and the food. Each Food Trail can be completed on foot, by bike or by hoof! A New Forest Food Trail lets you experience the beautiful and vast landscapes that the national park has to offer, matched with plenty of opportunities to enjoy some of the delicious local produce available throughout the forest.

The South Taste Trail is perfect for cyclists who want to get out and explore the forest, taking you close to nature and letting you discover quaint and beautiful New Forest villages. Watch out for the New Forest ponies on the South Trail, as you will be going through the villages of Brockenhurst and Burley; here the furry locals have the right of way! The South Trail starts near to the railway station in Brockenhurst through the picture perfect scenery to Burley village along the old railway line.
The Woodland Wander Trail is ideal for picnic lovers and those who like to enjoy the serenity and peace of the beautiful and majestic forest. Starting the day in Lyndhurst you will set off to Minstead then across to the Bolderwood deer park; this route takes in the most beautiful parts of our ancient woodlands and is a 'must see' so don't forget your camera! From Bolderwood you make your way to Burley - a village well known for its 'witchy' connections. The village is an ideal spot for an ice cream or afternoon cream tea in any of the tea rooms. Once you have finished tucking into the delicious feast, then it is homeward bound via Bolderwood to Lyndhurst.

The North Trail will give you not only a taste of the best New Forest Marque produce, but also the North Trail takes you through 15 miles of picturesque woodland and heathland. Once you have started your day tucking into a delicious New Forest Breakfast served at the The Hyde-out Café, the North Trail takes you from Hyde to Fritham - across the Hampton Ridge. Stop for lunch at the Royal Oak where you can delve into one of the best ploughman's in the area which uses delicious New Forest Marque produce. On your trek back home you can pick up some more local treats for supper at D.J. Prices Butchers in Fordingbridge.

Perfect for anyone who loves nothing more than to start their day with a morning dip; delve into the Sea Water swimming baths - the oldest lido still open in the UK. Follow the Sea Trail and take a gentle stroll along the Solent Way through the Lymington to Keyhaven Nature Reserve which provides you with glorious views across the Solent towards the Isle of Wight. Arrive back in Lymington with enough time to explore the shops and sample some deliciously creamy, New Forest ice cream whilst watching the world go by on the Old Town Quay.
