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.
Blackwater arboretum is an idyllic setting with a stunning variety of beautiful trees from around the world. Inspired by the tree collection at this special place, a sensory sculpture trail complements the setting.
Explore Blackwater on two wheels by following the New Forest’s great network of cycle trails.
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.
