About
There is a viewing platform for deer. Picturesque forest and national park for the family. Very picturesque and ponies wonder around. It was very busy Easter Weekend but still and enjoyable day out, getting back to nature.

A lovely part of the New Forest to view the beautiful deers. It is best to visit on a dry day otherwise the deers tend to hide/shelter. We were lucky to see quite a few of the deers. It has an area for picnics and toilets (not the most modern or cleanest but your in the middle of the forest!)

Large car park and toilet facilities. We didn't see any deer from the viewing platform but that was probably due to the large number of people there making a great deal of noise. However we went off the main paths and we rewarded with some young deer feeding

As a local family, we often travel near here. One day we decided to take lunch and see the deer.
We weren’t disappointed. Beautiful deer, lovely clean grounds.
We saw members of staff who were friendly and keen on ensuring visitors adhered to the rules (no bbq’s, fires etc)
Lovely day!

A really lovely walk through the trees and plant life of the New Forest. A perfect picnic for lunch lots of people about, but everyone kept socially distanced and respected each other’s space. Will be back!

We arrived later in the day, so missed the feeding time. The viewing platform looked out over a meadow and no deer were seen. However, we took a walk on one of the paths, blue I think and just a little further down we spotted some deer in a meadow. On the return leg of the walk, we came across a couple of deer inside the walking area which was pretty awesome.

We walked here from Lyndhurst. Forest tracks beautiful walk. Easy walk but not very well sign posted. Unfortunately we did not see any deer . We met lots of horses in the woods. Free toilets and picnic areas.

We spent a couple of hours walking around the forest here. It’s stunning and beautifully kept. Sadly we didn’t see any deer, but there were plenty of horses! Easy parking too. Definitely worth a visit.

We walked the longer marked path around the wood. Parking is by donation but the machine wasn’t working. Toilets on the car park.
The paths are well marked and easy to follow with the trees showing their glorious autumnal colours. Unfortunately the deer were absent but we enjoy this walk regardless.

We entered the Bolderwood ornamental drive from the southern end. The drive to the main car park is very pleasant. At the car park you can easily visit the deer viewing platforms and there are several walks.
At this time of the year the colours are lovely and it is much less crowded than in summer. The drive north from there took us past some much more open terrain and we counted over thirty ponies from one spot. The road goes under the A 31 and there is NO direct access. If you follow the local roads towards Fritham you can reach the B 2078. Where this road meets the B 2079 there is a sign directing you to the Rufus Stone. This road is narrow and crosses a shallow ford.. but.. if you are looking for adventure it is fun to do.

I was able to see a deer far away. Had a nice peaceful walk in morning. I was able to have some wild berries and was able to pat friendly donkeys along the way. keep it in mind not to mess with the big bulls near the forest.
