Furzey Gardens is a secret woodland garden nestled deep in the New Forest. With a cosy thatched tea room, rare and unusual plants and over 40 fairy doors there is something for everyone. Every time you visit you are helping us to provide support and work experience for people with learning disabilities.
The deer viewing platform at Bolderwood is one of the best places in the New Forest to see a herd of deer. Fallow deer gather in the meadow for their daily feed between noon and 3pm, from April to September. Bolderwood is also a great spot for an afternoon walk, too.
