Located at the southern centre of England and hugging the Hampshire coastline. The Forest sits between the UK’s largest coastal resort Bournemouth and the maritime city of Southampton, this ancient region thrives with enchanting forest and unique wildlife.
The New Forest was voted the top national park in Europe in the Travellers Choice awards 2021.
With over 10,000 hectares of lowland Heathland it is the largest remaining area in Western Europe, and has the largest concentration of ancient trees and bog lands . Roaming the forest are five species of deer, along with boar, horses and donkeys. The sounds of bird life is everywhere, with nightjar and woodlark nesting in the Heathland, and in the bog-lands and mires rare species thrive including 2700 species of fungi.
