Your tent is all set up, you’ve had a cup of tea and your sleeping bag is waiting to be blindly clambered into at night, so what next? Luckily with an abundance of things to do in the New Forest you don’t have to ponder that question for too long.

With copious amounts of cycling and walking routes – a staple activity for any camping holiday – and bike hiring available in Ashurst, Burley and Brockenhurst, the tiring stuff is taken care of. Take a look below to find bike hire shops close to your campsite, or take a look at our section on New Forest walks.

For more adventurous things to do in the New Forest, try abseiling, climbing, sea kayaking and more with Appetite for Adventure, based in Brockenhurst.

We’ve scoured the forest to make sure you have enough things to do during your stay with us, so take a look below for further information on each activity.
