Top 5 Most Romantic New Forest Spots

January, 2021

We know you’re not able to go out for date night and foodie treats this year so we’ve put together our top 5 most romantic spots for walks. Bursting with breathtaking views and secret spots to spend time with the one you love most, the New Forest is perfect for your daily dose of the great outdoors this Valentine’s.

  1. 1. Ancient Knightwood Oak

  2. Shelter beneath the ancient boughs of the Knightwood Oak – at 600 years old and more than seven metres round, it’s bound to bring the blessing of longevity to your relationship.

2. Piper’s Wait

Tell them you love them at the New Forest’s highest point, Piper’s Wait, near Bramshaw, Lyndhurst. They’ll feel on top of the world!

3. Ornamental Drive

Take a drive down the beautiful Ornamental Drive, home of some of the tallest trees in the New Forest – although looking its best during the autumn season, there is just something so magical about this location all year round. Stop off and take a stroll on the Tall Trees Trail along the way – a 1.5 mile gentle romantic walk through the trees.

4. Seven Arches Bridge

Stand atop the seven arches of the bridge spanning the River Avon at Fordingbridge.

5. Hurst Spit

Walk the 1.5 miles from Milford-on-Sea to experience the beauty of Hurst Spit. The castle won’t be open but you’ll be standing so far into the Solent you’ll feel you can touch the Isle of Wight.
