3 Reasons to Visit the New Forest This September
Three things to see and do this September:
The Animals… of course! Seeing our lovely horses, cows, donkeys and pigs out on the forest, along the roads and in the village is a real sight!
All day, everyday our four legged friends are out in the 94,000 acres of New Forest National Park. They are so used to their surroundings, they walk through the village or may even stroll alongside your car. We really are so lucky to be around the animals. Just look and enjoy them in their natural habitat. They are wild animals. The Verderers who look after the forest would like you to let them stay wild and ask that you keep a little distance.
The views – Perhaps your an early bird; you cannot fault the sun rise in the mornings here in Brockenhurst, the mist from the night before and the sun beaming up, welcoming you positively into the new day ahead, it’s glorious. The sunset over the forest and the bold orangeness of the horizon, you cant miss it!
Being in the forest, the night sky lights up magnificently. Imagine being sat outside on a dark night and looking up to see hundreds and thousands of stars, shooting stars also. The moon just staring at you in the dead silence of the evening with no background noise but the occasional owl… the perfect relaxation.
