Walking Holidays UK


The popularity of walking holidays in the UK has increased in recent years.

The New Forest is the ideal destination for holidays where walking is high on the priority list. Well established for couple's walks and a romantic UK break the forest also lends itself perfectly to a family holiday too.

When staying in the New Forest, one of the most exciting accommodation options for the kids is camping - pitching a tent in one of the many fully facilitated campsites in the forest.

The New Forest is home to a wealth of experiences that are best achieved on foot. With 193,000 acres of sprawling heathland and ancient forest - the forest is a paradise for the keen rambler.

With the different types of New Forest walking routes and guided walks available - focusing your break on exploring the forest on foot is easy.

Following a day of active exploring, visitors are spoilt for choice concerning accommodation. Staying at one of the diverse choice of hotels available, a cosy self - catering cottage, a luxury spa hotel or an intimate bed and breakfast, will not fail to disappoint.

Although the New Forest is a National Park so you are free to explore it spontaneously, another great option is to follow one of the tried and tested walking routes.

The New Forest is home to many endangered species that can be observed in their natural habitat along these specific routes - however if you don't get the chance to spot them here you can visit the many wildlife centres within the forest to see them there.

The pretty villages of Lymington, Brockenhurst and Lyndhurst are ideal as starting and finishing points when planning your walking routes - offering a superb New Forest restaurants selection.

Along these New Forest pub walks you can find the perfect break in one of the many country New Forest pubs. Here you will find a unique selection of locally produced food and drink - including ciders and ales.

Most establishments welcome pets so if a dog walking holiday is what you are looking for - the New Forest has a wide selection of accommodation and activities which welcome dogs.

Visiting the New Forest, with the vast leisure options available, is guaranteed to delight all of the family and provide you with priceless holiday memories.
