Driving in the new forest

We are very lucky to be located in the heart of the New Forest however this does offer up some unique hazards on the roads.

Please drive carefully and responsibly when attending our events and be aware of free-roaming animals and cyclists on the roads. Due to the close proximity of our neighbours, please be respectful when entering and leaving the event.
