A Year in the New Forest

Winter in the New Forest

The winter months are a great time of year to attend Retreat to experience tranquility and clear energy in the forest.

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.

Early morning walk to Bolton’s Bench or top of the hill to take in the magnificent site of the sun rising and moon set.

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.

Spring in the New Forest

Stay with Peace of Mind in The New Forest National Park, Lyndhurst Heathland Walk🧚

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.
