Hampshire's New Forest National Park is a walker's paradise, with ancient woodland and stunning heathland, picture postcard villages, and an abundance of wildlife. Spoiled for choice from Bolderwood, you can take an easy, well-marked trail around the deer sanctuary, or head north to see the Canadian Memorial and stunning views back down to Bratley Woods. For a good circuit handrail the A31 back south taking in Bratley Woods and Ridley Wood.
