An idyllic landscape steeped in history
The enchanting area consists of one of the UK’s largest and most unspoilt areas of forest,
pastureland and heath – perfect for visitors who want to make the most of the great outdoors.
The forest is criss-crossed with walking trails which wind their way through ancient woodland,
past beautiful gardens and magnificent stately homes. The New Forest is a haven for wildlife.
Look out for woodlark, grass snakes, deer and red kites. As you explore the area, you’ll discover
pretty towns and villages, including Lyndhurst, Brockenhurst and Burley. Apart from
walking, a wide range of outdoor pursuits are easily accessible in the New Forest, including
canoeing, sailing and mountain-biking.
