The New Forest is vast. For a lot of it the landscape is rolling hills covered in gorse with smaller woods dotted about. Loads of wild ponies and donkeys roam about and there are loads of walking and cycling trials.

Most sites close during the winter. Check the New Forest web site as I believe one remains open.

There is no climbing frame but you won't be short of trees for them to climb 😊 (Actually, I'm not sure that tree climbing is allowed).
