Highlights

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. Though the other side of the village, we drop down on to the old railway line and ride through open heathland. The old line leads us to The Old Station Tea Room at Holmsley where a stop for a cappuccino and cake may be required to “refuel” ! From here, it is just a short ride back to Brockenhurst. This ride can be shortened if required. This tour starts in Brockenhurst and is possible to walk to if you are staying nearby, train station, regular Bluestar 6 bus route. We can also recommend bike hire from Brockenhurst.
