It is undoubtedly a beautiful place but I was surprised there are no footpaths and signage for walkers not familiar with the forest, which I am sure includes lots of tourists.

Everything, it's a lovely part of the south coast, close to Bournemouth, Southampton, which are just a few miles away. There are also lots of small villages along the coast just a short drive away and lots of places in walking distance.

The sense of calm that you get when you drive into to New Forest is great. We camp at Holmesley camp-site, it's a great base with great facilities. The forest itself is great for walking or simple relaxing in, quiet, peaceful and beautiful to look at. I recommend everyone spends a week here to de-stress...

Best explored on foot or bike. Ponies are great. Would probably good for camping if we had more time
