Hatchet Pond
Hatchet Pond is the largest body of water in the New Forest. Created in the 18th Centuary to provide power for an iron mill, the pond today provides valuable habitats for wildlife as well as being a scenic backdrop for a Picnic. This is also a good place to head for to watch the sun go down.
One mile west of Beaulieu and the B3054.
Plenty of parking next to the pond.
Wheelchair accessible next to the pond in the car park area.
