Take in two unspoilt, pretty villages in the Hampshire countryside in this circular walk, a peaceful, quiet location with some great wildlife and gentle rolling hills. Add in part of the Oxdrove Way and a great pub with excellent food and this turns into a lovely day out.

This is a part of Hampshire you could aspire to living in, picturesque villages in a peaceful location, but not a million miles away from civilisation. This area of Hampshire is unspoilt and great for relaxed walking. This short easy walk takes in all of that over the undulating rolling hills.

There are some lovely views, although there are no big hills to climb. It's also very quiet and you will be hard-pressed to see anyone on the route other than locals in each village. The wildlife is in great abundance, maybe due to the lack of people I experienced on the walk. There is also a woodland trust that can be deviated into for more wildlife and fauna.

Great walk and the pub is well worth a visit.

Completed on a sunny autumn afternoon, 2 hours dead without the diversion to the pub. Very much delivers on rural tranquility, some fine views and a general lack of other people. The long byway at WM7 was surprisingly churned-up already and will definitely be wellies-only for the winter months. Recommended.

Walked in June 2013. The walk itself was easy with good directions and luckily not to muddy. The lane at way point 7 is closed, however if you turn left here and continue for about 100m you meet a footpath on right with hidden finger post. Just follow this to the end of the field and you will see the barn mentioned a point 8 over to your right. You can then rejoin the route

A very lovely walk. The path along Rushmore lane is likley to be VERY muddy after a spell of rain so suitable footware is essential. The path after Lower Wield is confusing because the OS maps show the footpath skirting the Park Copes whereas the it actually goes through it for a short way. But if you follow the large signs put up by the landowner you will not get lost.

Most enjoyable walk but I agree with the comments about Point 4, the style has gone. The byway which takes in points 6,7 and 8 has been very cut up by a large heavy vehicle with deep tyre tracks and was quite hard going.

Pleasant walk with some nice scenery and a good pub about 2/3rds of the way round the route. Although a better route to visit the Yew Tree pub is to start down the road, but when it bends to the right there is a marked foot path on your left which takes you across a field and straight to the pub - much quicker and more pleasant route than the road. The path around Point 4 is a little confusing as I think a stile has now gone and the "path" felt like it walked through a bush!

We followed this walk yesterday, the directions were great and the scenery breathtaking, we didn’t see a soul (until we went to the Yew Tree pub) which had a lovely garden for the kids although we did get a few odd looks in all our walking gear from the Sunday Diners! We did get a little bit lost towards the end but if you just follow the few footpath signs you will get there! On one section the ground is very very muddy underfoot.
