Places to visit in the New Forest

Breaks in the New Forest will leave you completely invigorated. Ambles through woodland lanes pausing at thatch-roofed tearooms and village pubs, canoe trips down bubbling streams and canters across open heathland; that's what weekends in the New Forest are made of. Cheeky New Forest ponies and donkeys stop the traffic as they cross between patches of common pastureland. They take their time. Look carefully and you see fallow deer dart between pines and oak trees and grass snakes slither through marshes in this National Park near the south coast. Stop off at Hampshire villages and market towns for jam factories, flour mills and medieval churches or the park’s coastal edge for views across the Solent and cobbled Georgian seaside villages. There are attractions for all the family in the New Forest.
