NEW FOREST (The)
The New Forest offers chocolate-box scenery - 220 square miles of open heath and woodland where ponies, cattle and pigs roam freely, punctuated by the occasional attractive town and village. It's an ancient royal hunting forest, created in the 11th century by William the Conqueror at the expense of its inhabitants. These days, it's a place for walking, cycling, horse riding - or just relaxing.
