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.

Miles of way marked tracks, quite easy to follow. Plenty of car parks to start from. Helpful to get a cycling map from Information Centres

The New Forest is very special with it's mix of forest tracks for walking and cycling with the New Forest ponies, cows and donkeys wandering freely. You should also be able to spot wildlife such as one of the species of deer, goshawks and butterflies. Take a camera.

Fantastic for walking, cycling and relaxing. It is a lovey place to spend a sunny Sunday in May or another month.
