Beaulieu Village to Bucklers Hard

 Aug 2012

A 7 kilometre round trip that takes you from Beaulieu Village to Bucklers Hard along the banks of the Beaulieu River.

Distance: 4.5 miles (7 kilometres)

Time: 2 hours (depending on stay at Bucklers Hard) 

  1. Start at the Montagu Arms Hotel
  2. Turn up into the main street of the village and take the footpath by Norris’s shop. This is signposted “Bucklers Hard 2 miles”
  3. This will lead you to a school sports field. Keep to the edge of this field and head to the stile in the right hand corner.
  4. After the stile, follow the footpath through the gate marked “Solent Way”. The Beaulieu River is now visible on your left.
  5. After a short distance you will enter The North Solent Nature Reserve. Continue along this path and you will see an open field on your right.
  6. Bear left by the cottage at the top of the field and follow the footpath signs to Bucklers Hard.
  7. After this, bear right and then bear left.
  8. After approximately 100 yards, you will have the choice of two paths, both of which will take you to Bucklers Hard (both paths come out at the same point)
  9. At the end of your chosen path you will come to a boat yard. Cross the road and follow the path signposted “Solent Way”.
  10. To return to the Montagu Arms, simply retrace your steps, and perhaps try out the alternative path to the one you chose in step 8!
