Welcome to my New Forest Disabled, All Access, rambling and accommodation information. I hope I can help you to explore and enjoy the stunning New Forest National Park and local coastal areas.
Please be prepared for mud during the winter months, there's always lots of it about!
Here you can ask a question, share some information or add a story, please add your comments on the form further down this page.
The New Forest National Park can offer the disabled visitor many All Access places to discover and enjoy and hopefully we can assist you. Please always feel free to Contact Me and I'll try to find answers for you.
The New Forest Centre is a great way to discover the history of the New Forest. Set in the centre of Lyndhurst there is a museum, visitor info centre, gift shop, library, exhibition gallery and accommodation booking service. There are also lots of tea rooms to visit.
I've just discovered a fantastic resource for you to explore called disability horizons. Co-founder Martyn Sibley recently visited the New Forest and managed to experience archery, tree climbing and sailing! He shares his experiences with us on his video and also has lots of wonderful info to share too. I learned a lot about NewForest disabled activities and other resources available for everyone to enjoy.
New Forest Disabled All Access Picnic areas
are all over this stunning National Park. You can chose to just enjoy
your picnic, play games, go for a walk or just relax on a bright sunny
day. Those listed below are All Access.
Anderwood is a shady car park with toilet facilities, set amongst woodland. Also, BBQ is allowed for raised non disposable BBQs. Ring 023 8028 3141 to book or for more details.
What about a visit to the beach?Here is some info for you. I would suggest the following areas which are either in the New Forest or just outside
1. Lepe Country Park is a good place to start and offers stunning views across the Solent. Look at my Lepe details for photos and a review. Lepe Sat nav postcode is SO45 1AD
2. We go to Mudeford a lot which is just outside the New Forest. Easy, flat parking and you can walk/travel completely flatly along the beach edge. There are lovely views across to the Isle of Wight plus toilets, cafes and a great fish shop for fresh fish.
Contact Mudeford Ferry to see if the "Josephine" is running to take you over to Hengistbury Head which is flat and easy to travel over if you stick to the lower path. You can even take a little land train along the edge of the water bird area. You can also drive to Hengistbury, park and then choose to use the flat lower path or train.
