New Park, Brockenhurst, SO42 7QH

New Park is a 230-acre former park and farm and is surrounded by ancient and ornamental Woodland, within the boundary of the proposed National Park and is also listed as a historic park.  It is grazed by both Red and Fallow deer at most times of the year. The deer have ‘grown up’ oblivious to the human activities at New Park, providing close contact with visitors staying on site. They are a valuable feature and have played an important role in the Park’s history.
