Attraction details
Owner description: The New Forest National Park is truly unique. It’s a ‘world capital’ for wildlife with a huge diversity of rare plants and animals– one of the reasons why it was made a National Park in 2005. A place of outstanding natural beauty, the unique landscape is shaped by the grazing of ponies, cattle and pigs that roam freely. These animals may appear wild, but they are owned by people called commoners. One of the last places in southern England to offer a sense of wildness and tranquillity, it’s a wonderful area to explore on foot, horseback, or by bike. Indeed William the Conqueror, who set aside the ‘New Forest’ for hunting more than 900 years ago, would probably recognise much of it today.

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 fantastic area for all ages. Beautiful views, lots of wildlife. Watch out when driving through the forest and villages for wild horses, donkeys and deer.

A great place for cycling! Though the whole day of cycling is pretty a lot as there is number of roues to choose from. One day cycling should be started from the morning in order to have time for nice lunch and chilling as bicycle rent closes at 5:30 (if you come for one day).
Really nice place even so a baby deer! Really recommended for a weekend getaway or even a day.

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 and walk
