England's Ancient Forest

The National Park lies within the county of Hampshire, on the south-central coast of England, and is predominantly occupied by an area formerly just called the New Forest, approximately 150 square miles in size and once a royal hunting ground for King William I and his noblemen, in the 12th century AD.

The rare blend of open heathland and ancient woodlands makes the New Forest, affectionately called the Forest by locals, a unique and very special place indeed, the underlying features of which have changed little over the centuries.

This is the perfect place to visit if you're looking to enjoy the countryside but without the crowds that flock to the larger National Parks. With stately homes, castles and picturesque gardens all close by you're spoilt for choice. Where better to stay while you're enjoying these activities than in a traditional British pub.
