The New Forrest is a stunning and vast area of woodland and heath land and is steeped in History. One example king Rufus being shot in the eye out hunting. and a large stone laid in the place where he fell.

This is a stunningly beautiful and surprisingly sparsely populated area. The bracken stretches over the rolling countryside for as far as the eye can see. Wild ponies adorn the landscape although they can be a hazard as they often wander close to the roads.

We have been coming to the new forest every year for the last 25 years and we now take our young children here. There is some much to do with them. Totally recommend grabbing at Mudeford Quay and rhinefields.

During half term 2014 I took 2 children aged 6 and 8 to this riding school for a half hour lead-out ride into the New Forest. All off road so very safe.

Myself and a group of friends visited this place for the afternoon. We parked up and had a wonder around. Great to see the horses just having a stroll. There was quite a bit of traffic getting there mind, which other people seem to be commenting on too. But still worth the visit

Just a great place. Get off the beaten track and explore! We often see wild animals and it is a great place to mtb, walk or ride.

Seeing so many wild horses just wondering aimlessly around was a joy. It was so peaceful you couldn't help but relax. Great therapy!
