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.
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.
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.
