Nomansland - Bohemia - Lover - Langley Wood - Hamptworth

You need to log in as a member of Walkingworld to access the details for this walk and have an active subscription. Please join, or log in above if you are already a member.

Nomansland is a small village on the border between South-East Wiltshire and the New Forest. The walk is very similar to any walk you may do in the New Forest, being mainly in or alongside woodland.

The walk follows a north-westerly direction to begin with and there will be a profusion of rhododendron blossom when in season. You also pass through the oddly named villages of Bohemia and Lover (the place to post your Valentine cards) before reaching the entrance to Langley Wood National Nature Reserve. Collect a leaflet here to explain what you might look for as you pass through the woods. Pass by a golf course, through more woods and return via Hamptworth to Nomansland. Keep your eye open for the ponies as well as other wildlife as you pass along.

In light of the comments about aggressive dogs and livestock which may sometimes be present on this walk please consider your safety when taking your own dog on this walk. More info about cows and bulls:

Did this walk on Saturday 11th July 2020. It is a very enjoyable walk - nearer 10 miles then 9 !!! The dog mentioned in previous comments is not a problem any longer - the farm has now been demolished with lots of new buildings - all change!!!!. Like many walks, over the years, there have been developments and changes and the directions although Ok could do with an update Lots of stiles have gone and other landmarks We had a GPS which was very useful especially around the golf course Don't let me put you off - this is a very good and enjoyable walk Just take care with the directions.

I have been on this walk twice now, and whilst it is lovely you need to be aware of the farm after the golf course, the first time my wife, my dog and I walked through we were chased by 4 quite aggressive dogs, We were not bitten however my wife was very nervous. Literally straight after this you have to go over a stile and into a field which contains several donkeys and horses, they are very friendly, however the donkeys were trying to kick my dog. Literally within 25 foot of crossing the stile is another stile, we were unable to get in this field as it was full of cows with their calves which again did not seem very friendly. So we had to go through the field with the horses and donkeys which literally chased us. Please be careful.
