Autumn in the New Forest

Spending autumn in the New Forest can really make magical memories. Pubs start lighting their log fires, the leaves change colours, and pigs are let out for pannage. Experience the National Park coming alive with golden hues and rich reds during your visit. The best way to see the wonders of this season is staying at a bed and breakfast New Forest visitors love. Harvest House could be the perfect one.

Last year this season brought about the most impressive array of colours in about 80 years. The New Forest’s unique mix of native, ornamental and ancient trees means it rivalled even the Canadian autumn. As a result there are high expectations for this year’s fall.

There are also many activities to partake in this year in the area. These include walks, cycle rides, days out and the chance to hunt for mushrooms. Choose from over 50 expert-led walks through the landscapes, at the New Forest Walking Festival 2017. Taking place from 14th to 29th October, the festival includes history hikes, wildlife walks, and family adventures.

Fungi walks are brilliant for all ages. Try and spot fairy toadstools, or hunt for conkers as well. If you’re lucky you may be able to see the local wildlife such as deer, ponies, and other woodland creatures. As many of them are very active at this time, you can be sure of a possible sighting.

Alternatively, you can visit the many New Forest tea rooms, or have a break in any of the countless restaurants and pubs. Not to forget the numerous attractions all within the area; you can take a visit to some of the most beautiful gardens and parks such as Exbury, Furzey and Beaulieu.
