New Forest

Most people think of The New Forest as a large wood with lots of ponies but it has that and so much more. Like Exmoor, the New Forest National Park runs down to the sea, which is this case is The Solent which separates Hampshire from the Isle of Wight. The forest itself provides visitors with a wooded wonderland of activities and places to explore, from horse riding and cycling to high-wire adventure parks, or simply enjoying a family picnic. The motor museum at Beaulieu is world famous and will keep the whole family happy for a full day.

There are many lovely New Forest gardens to explore at Lepe Country Park, Furzey Gardens and Braxton Gardens. The Forest is an animal lovers’ paradise, such as at Marwell Wildlife Park or The New Forest Wildlife Park, and if you have had enough of roaming the woods, there is sailing or boat trips to be enjoyed on the Solent. Visit Buckler’s Hard, a coastal village where Royal Navy ships, 'Men of War', were built to join Nelson’s battle fleet during the Napolionic Wars using the ready supply of mighty oaks from the Forest.
