I would recommend hiring bikes, this can be done very easily and most hotels and B&Bs will have further information on how to hire them.

10 Things to do in the New Forest

1. The New Forest National Park

This national park is pretty much a paradise for nature lovers. Hike, Bike or even drive the national park, but don’t miss Bolderwiid at the heart of the New Forest

2. Hurst Castle in Milford on Sea

One of the best places around here where you can get ice cream in the New Forest.

3. Brockenhurst Village

Don’t be surprised if you see a horse or donkey standing in line for the local bank, they just roam the streets freely. It is a beautiful rural village with fantastic restaurants and pubs to take a pit stop at after all the fresh air you will be getting.

Where to eat in the New Forest

1. The Kitchen Garden and Smoke House at The Pig Hotel 2. The Mill at Gordleton 3. Apple Court Garden and Nursery

Where to stay in the New Forest

I often find that Airbnb is the best option. I’ve had some seriously great ones over the years. I like the fact that you get your own kitchen so you can buy fresh local produce and cook it at home.
