Just had a weekend based in Lyndhurst for a wedding. Criss-crossed New Forest a number of times, and had a great time of year where everything seemed to be green (no fire damage seen). Didn't actually get out of the car to explore the forest, so not in a good position to review, but has great views, lovely sunsets; lots... More

Beautiful forest with loads to do. Many different good quality pay to enter attractions. Many free places to go. Horses roaming free and some cattle too. Fabulous villages with great tea rooms and cafés and local gift shops. Great for a day visit or camping for longer periods.

A great place for cycling! Though the whole day of cycling is pretty a lot as there is number of roues to choose from.

Have been through the New Forest on many journeys but never off the dual carriageway. This weekend we supervised the DofE group so gave us ample oppportunities to get off the beaten track and explore. Went to some fabulous areas and also the villages of Lyndhurst, Burley and Brockenhurst. Beautiful part of the world and ample opportunities to get and... More

The New Forest is a unique region of England with a long history and charming communities and wonderful waking and hiking areas. The enclosures are beautiful and peaceful, and the free-ranging ponies, donkeys and cattle add to the charm on the heaths and in the various small town's commons. There are many historic houses and gardens to visit as well.... More

We enjoyed our walks here so much; not too taxing, very peaceful, nice to just stroll along, holding hands and enjoying the beauty and the occasional pony!
