Self Catering Brockenhurst New Forest
The New Forest has a number of attractions and activities to offer. A selection is shown in the next tab.

Top Tips:

  • Explore the depths of the ancient woodlands. Set out on foot, rent a bike, hire a pony and follow a way-marked trail through the forest, stopping off at a local pub for lunch
  • Use the hop-on-hop-off open top buses to tour the New Forest
  • Visit the Bolderwood Deer Sanctuary to see the deer
  • Visit Rhinefield and Bolderwood Ornamental Drives . These are beautiful all year round, but perhaps at their best in early November, with ancient beech trees displaying spectacular autumn colours
  • Take a ferry from Lymington to the Isle of Wight
  • Visit the gardens at Exbury or Furzey
  • Look out for local shows. To the North of Brockenhurst is New Park, which is the annual home of the New Forest Show, held in late July
  • Go for a walk along the coast at Milford-On-Sea and enjoy the views of the Isle of Wight
