Making memories in Dorset

Hi I’m Sarah – A personal trainer & nutritionist from the beautiful south coast of England. I love nothing more than experiencing and discovering new places with my wonderful hubby and travel buddy Stu in tow. I have two wonderful children and two fur babies (cats) – a Bengal, and a British Shorthair. Photography is a passion of mine, and I love trips to the cinema and clothes shopping. When I’m not making people do press-ups you’ll find me walking in the Dorset countryside.


48 hours in - what to do in the New Forest with kids over 2 days

If your little nippers are animal-mad, then a short break in the New Forest with kids, I promise will be an absolute winner.

Once a royal hunting ground for William the Conqueror, the New Forest is home to some of South East England's most picturesque countryside. The forest is known for its majestic trees, miles of crystal clear streams, and of course the famous free-roaming New Forest ponies, all to the backdrop of the most outstanding natural beauty. Made up of a whopping 566 square kilometres, there's more than enough space for a brilliant fresh-air-filled short break in the New Forest with kids.

My two-night itinerary for what to do with kids in The New Forest will ensure you all have a fabulously fun and memorable short break in what I consider to be the most magical forest in the UK. Where ponies, donkeys and deer roam free, and attractions encourage children to learn about the wildlife that calls the New Forest home.
