New Forest Park Information
The New Forest is an area of southern England which includes the largest remaining tracts of unenclosed pasture land, heathland and forest in the heavily-populated south east of England. It covers south-west Hampshire and extends into south-east Wiltshire.
Don’t just think of a forest as the New Forest coast extends for 26 miles in length, as the crow flies, making it up to 76% of Hampshire’s total coastline (33 miles).
The designated area of the National Park covers 571 km2 (140,000 acres) and includes many existing SSSIs. As well as most of the New Forest district of Hampshire, it takes in the South Hampshire Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, a small corner of Test Valley district around the village of Canada and part of Wiltshire south-east of Redlynch.
