  • What a lovely setting, every time we visit the deer are there en mass! Fantastic for the kids and picnic benches all around and a lovely information room there too and trees to play in  more »
  • We only saw a few deers at a distance which was disappointing. However it was still a lovely walk on a sunny day.  more »
  • Enjoyed our 3 mile walk through the forest, route clearly marked, free parking, picnic tables, wc. Could spend the day there in the summer.  more »

  • Clean, lost in time and space. Here you can enjoy silence and fresh air. Bring your bike and you will have miles and miles of tracks to pedal on. Avoid weekends and bank holidays as it can get really crowded. If you have a camera and binoculars bring those too, don't miss a chance to watch the deers, they're usually around. Don't forget to take your litter home in a bag, so others can enjoy the beauty of this place too
  • Great place for a long walk, also lovely to cycle. There are BBQ stands located next to the parking area with tables and everything too. A lovely place to visit and enjoy nature.
  • Love this place, excellent place for kids to run around in the Forrest and build dens. Not convinced on the deer viewing point you can’t actually see very far. I’d be suprised to see deer actually sat in front of it. We did see some deer on the walk in the next field though. Recommend
  • Beautiful. Travel can be delayed in the summer due to tourist seasons. Situated in the New Forest, 90% likely to see the deer even in the rain. Car park is free. Absolutely beautiful variety of old English trees. Variety of treks available for varying lengths and ease. Also a Gruffalo trail which is designed for the younger children and consists of wooden signs telling the tail and tracking the animals within the story.
  • Lovely place for a walk. Scenery is beautiful. Plenty of car parks along the route to the deer sanctuary, however the majority of these were closed when we went due to low season. Car park is free but you can leave a donation (except it was turned off when we went!) Toilet facilities were basic,but there was a toilet! Cold water running though so not ideal in the winter but can understand why. No deers to be seen when we visited but it was still a lovely walk. Will be coming back again.
