A Year in the New Forest
Spring in the New Forest
Spring is the season when free-roaming New Forest ponies and donkeys give birth to their foals. With the sight of cows and calfs…. would bring smile on your face.
New Forest ancient woodlands come to life with the fresh spring light greens with the beautiful carpet of bluebells covers the woodland floor.
It is a long-awaited sight of spring in The New Forest National Park. In Lyndhurst, we can spot them at Clayhill Heath and Pondhead Inclosure near to The Rufus House.
Summer in the New Forest
After Boltons’ Bench, take a path up to the hill then walk straight down, or walk towards Ashuhurst Forest via Whitemore, a walk along the paths, you will see the full of the purple heather-clad heathland with adorable new-born New Forest foals and baby donkeys.
Some beautiful coastlines are only 15 minutes drive from The Rufus House.

Winter in the New Forest
The winter months are a great time of year to attend Retreat programme. Tranquility and clear energy in the forest would be beneficial in practicing Mindfulness.
Being with nature looking up the sky, you might notice merlin, peregrine falcon and short eared owl making regular appearances on the heathland just in front of The Rufus House.
In 2020 the winter solstice will occur on Monday 21 December, walk up Bolton’s Bench or top of the hill just in front of The Rufus House to take in the magnificent site of the sun rising on the shortest day of the year at around 8:06am in The New Forest area, which is also the first official day of winter.
If the sky is dark and clear, one evening, we recommend a short walk in front of the Rufus House to the top of the hill where you can enjoy 360 degree views. Why? The New Forest has some of the UK’s darkest skies in the relatively light-polluted south-east.
