“A beautiful place to live”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013 via mobile

Ok so maybe I am biased as I have lived here all my life, but what a beautiful part of the country. The forest itself is stunning with plenty of free car parks. Not much in the way of facilities such as public conveniences. A great place to explore with a picnic on a niceday, but please take your litter home with you. New Forest ponies, deer and other animals will be regularly found wandering across roads, the 40mph speed limit is there for a very good reason.

“Great at all times of the year”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

We have been meeting up somewhere in the New Forest for quite a few years now and never tire of its beauty and serenity. Normally we go in the winter to early spring months which means being able to take advantage of several hotel offers as well as having lots of space in this quiet part of the year. The onset of spring really shows well in the vegetation and there are some year round attractions like the Motor Museum at Beaulieu and the Saturday market in Lymington. Lymington and Lyndhurst are probably the nicest towns and you can access the Isle of Wight from the fomer quite easily. Burley is a nice village with a super tea-room and there are endless trails and walks for all ages. There are plenty of hotels in and around the Forest and year round public conveniences in some picnic spots which are always useful.

“New Forest has it all!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

The New Forest covers quite a large area so a car is preferable to visit the area. I enjoy driving from Marchwood to Lymington via Beaulieu at any time of year.Saturdays see a market taking place on Lymington High Street with loads of local items to purchase. Beaulieu has a sweet main road, a few coffee shops with the main attraction being the Motor Musuem. Walking in the New Forest is varied and you may want to get a local guide that includes a pub on the way!
