Take part in a range of exciting seasonal events in the heart of the New Forest at New Park

Also known as the New Forest Showground and located between the quintessentially English towns of Lyndhurst and Brockenhurst, there is always something to do at New Park. The coast is under 10 miles away if you're up for a challenging walk, or go wildlife-spotting around the park for a shorter stroll.

This location hosts special events throughout the year and guests can wander the grounds of the nearby Manor Hotel at any time of the year.

Things to do

Walking is the perfect way to get some fresh air and explore some of the area's most beautiful landscapes. There's over 140 miles of walking trails in the New Forest, for details look for the maps in the car park. A popular walk from New Park is to head north and do the Lyndhurst Parish Walk - 8.5 miles long and with plenty of pubs along the way!

The New Forest is great for dogs but to minimise disturbance to wildlife, livestock and other people, please keep your dogs close by you and visible at all times - if necessary use a lead.  Pick up after your dog, especially around car parks, on paths and where people play or picnic.
