    Explore Hampshire and Witlshire's treasured New Forest National Park this autumn, one of England's oldest and most loved forests. From idyllic pastures and bushy heathland, to wild and ancient woodland and cliff top walks, the New Forest's 219 square miles of protected green space has plenty of stunning landscapes for you to discover in autumn time. Walk for miles among magnificent oak trees that are over 800 years old and eldery beeches reaching an impressive 400 years or take an autumnal stroll along the park's ?secret' coastline. You make even spot one of the forest's most popular residents - the New Forest pony - grazing contently between the trees along the way. Deer, polecats, cattle and donkeys also live in the park and roam free in the grasslands so make sure you keep an eye out! To have the best chance of seeing some beautiful wildlife, head to Bolderwood Deer Sanctuary that hosts a purpose-built, public platform for spotting deer that overlooks a large, open meadow. Most of the New Forest also allows the access of dogs so you won't have to leave your four-legged friend behind!

    Popular attractions for all the family are also nearby if you're wanting to take a detour - Paulton's Park and the internationally renowned National Motor Museum at Beaulieu are both fun-filled day outs for all ages!
