Event Details

The Bell Inn and New Forest Commoner ‘Tom Hordle’ continue their collaboration and launch a unique forest walking experience for locals and visitors!

The Bell Inn are delighted to be continuing their collaboration with Tom Hordle who featured in the popular TV show ‘A year in the New Forest’ and have teamed up with him to host a series of NEW ‘Commoners Walks’.

This is a unique opportunity to meet with Tom and learn what is so special about the way the New Forest is managed plus delve deeply into the reality of how practising commoners live and work.

Based on the western fringe of the forest, a few miles north of Ringwood in Hampshire, Tom exercises his common rights of pasture to turn out free roaming cattle on to the 90,000 acres of open New Forest. The forest walking experience is a gentle stroll across beautiful forestry, among grazing cattle and new forest ponies. You will stumble across Toms hand reared cattle, visit his farm and you may even meet ‘Harold’ the bull whilst gaining a really clear understanding of the importance of the ancient tradition of ‘commoning’ and how it is essential to shape and maintain the forest today.

The ticket price is £65 per person and includes: Transport to the farm and a 2 Course Commoners Lunch of: Hand Raised Tom Hordle’s Beef, Ale and Wild Mushroom Pie, Buttered New Potatoes, Purple Sprouting Broccoli and Asparagus. Followed by Jack Flack Chocolate Cake with Malted Caramel, Chocolate Sauce and Malt Ice Cream
