Attraction Information

Delve into the forest, connect with nature and discover the deers at Bolderwood deer Sanctuary. Deer viewing isn't guaranteed but, the herd is fed by the friendly local New Forest keeper daily between April and September. So, the majority of deer are more than happy to remain in the main meadow and are by now very accustomed to the presence of observers!

Some of the deer are white, which is an uncommon colour for fallow deer to be, but it makes them nice and easy to spot! There is a wooden viewing platform just a short distance from the main Bolderwood car park, so easy to reach even with little legs or pushchairs.

Adjacent to the car park is a large and flat grassy lawn, ideal for kicking a football about or grouping up for a game of rounders, so bring your bats and balls!

  • Walks for all abilities
