WE have managed to get out and about in the New Forest over the last few weeks, parking up on the side of the A35 and going through a gate into the beautiful and peaceful forest. Trails, cycle paths or just sitting and enjoying nature. On Sunday we went into Burley, not the village where the shops are but to a car park Mill Lawn. Wow, wow, wow, it was spectacular. Hop out of the car and then just walk for miles , or cycle, take your bikes or hire them.Over 50 horses, ponies and cattle were around us minding their own business.
It was a fabulous hot day, people were having picnics but we still found ourselves alone for our 2 hour hike. It was a great drive home as well.
This should be somewhere you take for a day out. Pack a lunch , take some chairs or a blanket and just enjoy.
