Camping: New Forest 2010

The New Forest is one of Europe's most important locations for nature and conservation. Its unique mix of landscapes including ancient woodlands, wetlands and bogs, and open heathlands means it is home to many rare species of plants and wildlife long since lost from the UK and Europe. The New Forest pony is one of the recognised mountain and moorland or native pony breeds of the British Isles. Height varies from around 12 to 14.2 hands; ponies of all heights should be strong, workmanlike, and of a good riding type. They are valued for hardiness, strength, and sure-footedness. Hurst Castle is an artillery fort established by Henry VIII on the Hurst Spit in Hampshire, England, between 1541 and 1544. It formed part of the king's Device Forts coastal protection programme against invasion from France and the Holy Roman Empire, and defended the western entrance to the Solent waterway.

🙂 Ponies and pigs in the camp

Our annual Easter Trip was agreed to be closer to home, and given the great time we had with our friends in 2009 all were happy to camp here again. Simply stunning and highly recommended! Holland’s Wood is a great campsite with lots of tress and spacious camp sites. They allow dogs and firepits.

We took the boat to Henry the VIII’s tudor Hurst Castle which was very interesting to visit. The dogs were very seasick again! keeps them calm, so no complaints!

We also visited the New Forest Wildlife Park which was very interesting.
