    8 Quirky Facts About The New Forest

    1. Flower Power
      One of the UK’s largest national Parks, the New Forest is home to a third of Britain’s flower species, over 2,000 different fungi and deer, newts, snakes, bats, owls and of course wild ponies.
    2. Not Forest
      The New Forest covers 208 square miles but only 86 square miles of that is actually wooded, there is also 57 square miles of farmland, 61 square miles of heathland and grassland, plus 26 miles of coastland.
    3. Resting Place
      Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Florence Nightingale are both buried in the New Forest.
    4. Assassination?
      King William II (son of William the Conqueror) died while hunting in the forest when he was shot by an arrow. His death was attributed to an accident, but many historians believe he was assassinated under the orders of his brother Henry I who seized the vacant throne.
    5. Sticky End
      William the II wasn’t the only royal death, his brother Prince Richard and nephew Henry were also killed in the forest, according to folklore this was penance for William the Conqueror who evicted over 20 villages, farmers and families from the land to create his ‘new’ forest purely as a private royal hunting ground.
    6. Sandy Balls
      The area includes some curious place names, Bohemia, Little Stubby Hat, Anthony’s Bee Bottom, Burnt Balls and Sandy Balls (stop laughing at the back!).
    7. Pennage
      Pennage was an ancient right on most areas of UK common land, allowing people to let their pigs feast on acorns, chestnuts and other nuts. Consuming too many nuts can be harmful for cows and horses and while the practice no longer takes place in most regions, it is still used in the New Forest to protect the ponies.
    8. Wild Horses
      There are around 3,000 New forest ponies but they aren’t actually wild, they’re owned by ‘commoners’ and allowed to roam free in the forest as they have for centuries.

    About The New Forest

    About The New Forest

    Dating back to William the Conqueror who annexed the land as his own private hunting grounds, the New Forest spans two counties (Wiltshire and Hampshire) and covers 208 square miles. Famed for its fauna and flora it is home to the famous New Forest ponies which can be seen roaming free across what is the UK’s smallest and newest National Park.

    Leisure

    There is just so much to do, little ones can go wild at Conkers Adventure Centre, there’s a plethora of zoos and farms, a timber festival, 10k run, plus the New Forest and Hampshire County Show. If that wasn’t enough for you there are craft companies offering workshops, micro-breweries and wine producers, and more restaurants, cafes and eateries then it would be possible to visit in a single season (without adding a few notches to your belt!?!).

    Transport

    Despite the calmer pace of life and rural setting, the New Forest has excellent transport links. Close to both the M27 and M3, there are eight train stations plus both an international airport and cruise terminal within easy reach.
