This is a location that I know really well. When I was tiny my grandmother lived just down the road from here and we spent many holidays in the New Forest. Lyndhurst was a particular favourite for the whole family and I can still remember going horse riding there when I was about four. The pony was ridiculously fat and my legs pretty much stuck out straight on either side!
It's a beautiful spot and absolutely teeming with New Forest ponies. Take care if you take a picnic there though, because the ponies are very friendly, and not above pinching the odd sandwich!
