Escape the City to the New Forest

Escape the City gift vouchers

Immerse yourself in historic woodland and share winding country lanes with free-roaming wildlife on our 2 day guided, supported, all inclusive cycle experience in the New Forest.

Escape the City Think of 'Escape The City to the New Forest' as part seaside break and part forest retreat. The magic of this trip is the variety. One minute we'll be enjoying the tranquil natural sounds of an ancient forest (one of few remaining in Europe), the next plunging into the ocean and enjoying delicious locally-produced ice cream at one of the beautiful beaches overlooking the Solent.

The New Forest is full of history (which we'll do our best to impart), teaming with wildlife (some of which freely roam the streets given they belong to 'commoners' who have the right to turn out their livestock into the Open Forest) and contains a mix of both ancient woodland and open heathland. It is magnificent in every respect and thoroughly deserves to make the cut as one of our weekend escapes.
