This place is magical. There rare so many hidden gems in this beautiful national park. The animals perticularly make it for me, wild ponies, pigs roaming around, birds of prey flying above, adders basking in the sun, this list is never ending. You will not be disappointed when visiting our lovely New forest, has some thing to offer every one.... More

Love, Love, LOVE the New Forest! Have visited several of the towns & villages within, during our last 3 holidays and it's a brilliant experience, especially if you're lucky enough to see the animals out & about. It was totally amazing being in a traffic queue behind a herd of ponies coming up the road! :) Then spotting people playing... More

Picturesque and lovely ponies. Good to drive my mum around such lovely scenery, due to her being unable to walk on uneven ground

Lots of areas within the Forest for walking and attractions to visit if the weather is bad. Easy access to the coast - less than 30 mins drive to Christchurch

lovely area and lovely place to walk the dog and with beaches not to far away with walkways. The town of Lyndhurst is very quaint with lots of tea houses.

The New Forest is just that bit special. Huge, unspoiled areas of woodland and open fields to be hiked across, great camping, beautiful coastline, free-roaming animals, cute old fashioned villages... what's not to love?!? Oh, and as for the cream teas, mmmmMMM! On top of that, it's an easy direct train journey (on a good line: South West) out of... More
