Wild woodlandsThe New Forest

Wild expanses of woodland and hidden glades, cliff-tops that drop to the glimmering ocean and rivers that meander through mile-upon-mile of open countryside. The New Forest is England’s newest National Park, located in a beautiful, wild and unenclosed area of Southern England. Wander the winding forest trails and coastal paths, keep an eye out for the multitudes of rare flora and fauna, take a moment to soak up the peace and quiet in a quaint thatched pub or tea room. Breathe in the fresh air and meander through this peaceful landscape at your leisure.

The beautiful New Forest National Park can be found in southern England, covering south-west Hampshire, south-east Wiltshire and extending towards east Dorset. It is  the largest area of unsown vegetation in the lowlands of Britain, covering 219 square miles, with 120 square miles of this designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest. It mostly consists of stunning broadleaved woodland, heathland and grassland as well as large areas of wet heathland and forestry commission tree plantations.
