Many people come to the New Forest and Salisbury to enjoy the large number of outdoor activities on our doorstep, below are just some of our favorite Salisbury and New Forest outdoor activities.

Walks around the New Forest

There are a number of walks in the forest that we can recommend and we will provide you with directions on your arrival. We can suggest two in particular, a wooded walk at Nomansland and a heathland walk at Fritham, both of which have a pub at the end.
