Car Park Location
SZ 3017 9921
(NB nearby houses, NOT the pond!)
Directions: Setley Pond is located in the New Forest just west of the A337 Brockenhurst to Lymington Road.
Driving south from Brockenhurst: having passed the Filly Inn (on the left), there is a garage offering a hand car wash service on the left hand side and immediately afterward a speed camera protects the right turn off the main road toward the pond (signposted “Burley”).
Having turned off the main road: ignore the turning immediately left after the cattle grid which leads into Jealous Lane. Instead take the next left after that (maybe about 200m further on) onto a dirt track with a “Setley Pond” sign and a New Forest Car Park post.
Driving north from Lymington: after you pass the Hobler Inn (on the right) take the next road to the left (signposted “Burley”). If you pass the speed camera and the hand car wash garage you have just missed the turn! Then see paragraph above.
NB IC and Fast Electric boats are not allowed on Setley Pond; they are allowed at Stoney Cross pond.
