About this walk
A mixture of sandy lanes and wooded areas, with several large fields available, this walk can be hilly in parts. There are lots of rabbits in the summer, so lots of nice smells for the dogs and there are several car parks available. There are ponds/reservoir areas on both sides of the road, but you may find soldiers training during the week, so be careful!

This is not really a walk as such - more of a location. Can you provide more specific details about where to park and where to go please? I believe Bourley Road has places on the left and the right to park, but which one? One of your pictures shows a pond or similar, so would like to know where that is please. Also, do the walks go near to roads as my dogs roam off lead and if it's all near to roads, this would cause me concern. Sorry, not meaning to be critical - just want to find our more! THANK YOU!
Thanks for your comments. It's a bit difficult to describe as there are so many options with this walk. Approximately half way down Bourley Road there is a large car park (on the left if you are coming from Aldershot, or the right if coming from Fleet), this is the best place to park. From there, there are several fields which lead to lots of paths, these can take you for a simple guided walk which has a small "lake" at the end of it (inverted commas as it's quite small and dull). If you are interested in water, you need to cross the road and go down the path directly opposite the car park. This takes you through to 3 reservoirs (one seen in the picture) and has some nice steep hills. The walks tend to skirt around the roads, so you need to be vigilant of getting too close. My dog walks off lead and he's always been fine. Hope this helps, let me know how you get on!
Aargh, I meant on the left if coming from Fleet, or right if coming from Aldershot.
10 years agoThis is one of my family's favourite walks - the routes are endless, and the exploration for my puppy and young children is remarkable. We really enjoy the various options that the Tweseldown area gives - the sand, the long grass, the woodland, the hills the natural pools of water! One of my aboslute fave's for a good long walk! My puppy is only 6 months old, and has had no issue with the roads. We tend to walk in from the roads, rather than along (purely, as my nerves are not good at the best of times).
Thanks for the extra info - I've not been on for a while and thought I'd get an email if you replied! Thank you for giving more info - I will take a look with my husband - don't like going somewhere new on my own in case I get lost LOL! Thanks again!
Do horse riders use this land? Also are there cows roaming? Does any body know as I am keen to find routes where I won't bump into either!!
9 years agoI've never seen horses or cows, but that's not to say that there definitely wouldn't be any... If you stay on the side of the road which has the reservoirs, I can't imagine you'd be likely to see any horses due to the terrain. Just be careful of the army if you go midweek!
Fab, thank you, I will do a few lead walks first and check for hoof prints!! Due to the dark nights and mornings I will probably go on the weekends so should miss the soldiers training!
