The New Forest, with its abundance of walks and natural places to explore, is the perfect choice for a dog-friendly holiday. You’ll find leafy woodland strolls aplenty, with the chance to spot wildlife and local residents such as the famous New Forest ponies. Every day you could go for a different dog walk and there would still be hundreds of routes left to explore.
Spread throughout the towns and villages of the New Forest is a good choice of dog-friendly pubs and eateries, great for topping up your energy levels before heading out into the forest. Lepe Country Park and Moors Valley Country Park provide even more trails to follow with your dog.
When you’re not out and about exploring the scenery on foot, there’s no shortage of dog-friendly attractions in the New Forest. Exbury Gardens and Steam Railway is a top choice, as you can combine walking with a ride on the railway and roam through the gardens.
In Buckler’s Hard, your four-legged friend is welcome to join you on the Beaulieu River Cruise and if you’re looking to find out more about the area, The New Forest Heritage Centre in Lyndhurst allows dogs inside. Hurst Castle is another great place to explore with your pup, and friendly dogs on a lead are even allowed at the New Forest Reptile Centre and Dorset Heavy Horse Centre.
As you can see, you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to dog-friendly activities in the New Forest to fill your holiday itinerary. If your visit happens to coincide with the Dogstival dog show in June, even better! Take a look at our dog-friendly holiday cottages in the New Forest to find your perfect home-away-from-home, and enjoy a break with your four-legged family member by your side.
