The Central Southern England region
Created more than 900 years by William the Conqueror as a royal hunting ground, the New Forest has been protected over the centuries and still retains much of its original landscape. It is one of England’s most beautiful areas easily explored by walking, cycling or on horseback. Ponies and deer can be seen roaming freely.
Apart from the beauty of ancient oaks, majestic beeches and a myriad of funghi, visitors can enjoy the sights of birds of prey, foxes as well as other plentiful wildlife. The Forest retains a unique landscape which ranges from ancient woodland to heather-covered heath interspersed with picturesque thatched cottages and welcoming pubs.
The magnificent cedars of Ornamental Drive, Exbury Gardens with its exquisite display of azaleas and rhododendrons, Beaulieu's world famous National Motor Museum, Owl and Otter Farm at Ashurst, Paulton Amusement Park at Ower, seaside town of Lymington with its Saturday market and ferry to the Isle of Wight. The historic cities of Winchester and Portsmouth are all within easy driving distance and Stonehenge a day's outing, shopping at West Quay in nearby Southampton or Bournemouth.
