  • Do your research before leaving home to ensure that you get the most out of your visit. There's plenty to interest everyone, history, nature and colour in abundance, whatever the season. Golden yellow gorse, shades of purple heather, walls of colourful rhododendron and brilliant autumn hues. And in the bleakest white winter the forest and moors take on a beautiful if harsh appearance that reminds us that even behind the fences that protect the native ponies, the New Forest remains a wild place.
  • Snow adventure. Summer adventure. Autumn adventure. Always something different on the forest. Great for walking, cycling, horse riding, picnics, fishing and just about every outdoor activity you can think of. We spend slot of time here and always come across something new. Would highly recommend, if for only a day or to live!
