Accessible Days Out & Walks Around Hampshire

Providing accessible accommodation to our guests has been an important part of Wallops Wood from the outset so we’re really pleased that we can welcome guests with disabilities and their families to our cottages on a regular basis. Wallops Wood is located in the heart of the Hampshire countryside and means that getting around the county from countryside to coast is easy and everyone can enjoy walks and days out without having to travel too far.

Here are some suggestions for accessible walks and days out that all the family can enjoy.
