The New Forest

Over 150 square miles of forest for you to explore. A protected National Park that has 1000s of years of documented history. Announced to be a Royal Forest in 1079 by William I, it has gone on to be one of the most loved places in the south of England.

Commoners (inhabitants of the local area) have been given rights to graze their livestock on the forest for centuries and still do today. You’ll be able to see 1000s of New Forest Ponies running free, cows, donkeys, pigs and sheep all making this lush land their home. Do remember though, they are wild animals so keep your distance!
