Your personal guide Steve will lead you through the heart of this stunning ancient New Forest

From Brockenhurst, we ride out towards the Rhinefield Ornamental Drive on gravel tracks. Our first stop is the Reptile Centre where we might see adders, frogs and other reptiles native to the New Forest. The Portuguese Fireplace is on this tour too which is the remains of a hutted camp used by a Portuguese army unit that aided the local labour force in producing timber during the First World War. Back on the gravel, we find ourselves in stunning parts of the New Forest with the tour going behind the Deer Sanctuary where we might see deer if we are lucky !

Out of the Forest and on to lanes that take us though to the small village of Burley, where a stop for a cappuccino and cake at Shappen Cafe may be required to “refuel”. Though the other side of the village, we drop down on to the old railway line and ride through open heathland. It is just a short ride back to Brockenhurst.
