Ampfield Woods


Ampfield Wood is an area of large woodland maintained by the Forestry Commission which is just a stone’s throw from the White Horse. It’s home to carpets of bluebells during the Spring, and wild deer are a common sight, particularly at dawn and dusk.

If you park at the White Horse, there are a number of access points via Winghams Lane, Knapp Lane or alternatively via Jermyns Lane near Hilliers Gardens.

The wood offers a range of gravel paths, tracks and bridle paths. It is possible to walk directly from Ampfield to Hursley, Braishfield or Romsey, however there are lots of different paths and tracks in the immediate woods so you can take a circular route and return here. It’s perfect for a dogs at any time of year.
