The fantastic view from Beacon Hill over the Hampshire landscape is one of the highlights of this 10.5km walk, the fourth loop along the Clarendon Way (from Winchester). Doing this walk in mid March 2021 with a fair bit of sunshine was the perfect medicine against lockdown fatigue.
Start at in the centre of King’s Somborne, though it is also possible to cut through to Parnholt Wood from Farley Mount
Length: 10.4 km / 6.5 miles
Time: 2 hours 30 minutes at a swift pace + breaks
Difficulty: Moderate – 210 m total ascent
As you can see the walk is a little hilly-we suggest to walk anti-clockwise from King’s Somborne as you have sweeping views right in front of your for about half of the return journey.
Overview Clarendon Way 9 loops. If you want to venture a little further, this is a very useful map * when planning a UK staycation. It lists the 50 best adventure locations to be explored and we had lots of fun getting inspiration for a number or GB trips in 2021.
