Is there a beach with flat/disabled access near the new forest please?
Thank you for your help.
Here is some info for you. I would suggest the following areas which are either in the New Forest or just outside
1. For disabled access please have a look at
Lepe Country Park offers views across the Solent. See my page on Lepe for photos etc
Lepe Sat nav postcode is SO45 1AD
2. We go to Mudeford a lot which is just outside the New Forest. Easy, flat parking and you can walk/travel completely flatly along the beach edge. There are lovely views across to the Isle of Wight plus toilets, cafes and a great fish shop for fresh fish.
A ferry can take you over to Hengistbury Head which is flat and easy to travel over if you stick to the path. You can even take a little land train along the edge of the water bird area.

Mudeford Avon beach BH23 4AN
I hope this helps and you enjoy your visit and the weather has warmed up a bit!
Update;22.5.2013. We have just had a walk from the Steamer Point car park and would also recommend this area. There is the added bonus of going through the Steamer Point Nature Reserve (BH23 4TA) and having a cream tea at Highcliffe Castle. We have had many cream teas here - which is a reason we are always on long walks to fight the fat! here's more info. http://www.visitchristchurch.info/things-to-do/attractions/steamer-point-nature-reserve-p1170653. Car park good access from both directions on beach and many toilets on way - great news.
