We are delighted that Bolderwood is featured as part of the Ancient Canopy to be dedicated to Her Majesty in celebration of the Platinum Jubilee.  Ancient Woodlands are cherished reminders of our living heritage, often referred to as “nature’s Crown Jewels”. We are proud to be part of this unique project, which aims to raise awareness of these treasured habitats and the importance of conserving them for future generations.

Knightwood Oak is a great place to stop and enjoy a picnic, 'away from it all' and try to imagine what it would have been like over 500 years ago when the famous Knightwood Oak tree began to grow.

The Knightwood Oak is the largest oak in the New Forest, at 7.4m girth, and surely one of the oldest.

Nestled in the trees, this shady spot is the perfect place to park up and enjoy a picnic whilst listening to the sounds of woodland wildlife all around. 

To help prevent dangerous forest fires, this is a no BBQ and fire zone – BBQs and campfires are not permitted in our car parks or other areas of the forest managed by Forestry England and all BBQ facilities have been removed.

Keep Your Distance from livestock sign at Bolton's Bench

Walk up to the top of the hill at Bolton’s Bench and take a moment to let your mind wander amongst the magestic ancient yew trees. You'll also be treated to picturesque views of the heathland, ancient woodlands and grassy lawns that make the New Forest so special.
