Wrapping up the invigorating Tall Trees Trail, our path meandered back through the enchanting woodlands, ushering us onto the Rhinefield Road. Along this stretch, the grandeur of the Rhinefield House Hotel beckoned, a testament to the luxury embedded in the New Forest’s heart. As we continued, we were greeted by the quintessential sight of wild horses and ponies, grazing unfettered, embodying the untamed spirit of the forest. This serene communion with nature marked the perfect close to our day as we retraced our steps to the welcoming embrace of the Forest Park Hotel.

In the serene embrace of the New Forest, our second day at Lyndhurst offered a different kind of respite. Where the previous day’s adventures left us with a satisfying weariness, this morning was about indulgence in leisurely pursuits. Lyndhurst, with its quaint charm and easy-going pace, was the perfect locale for a restful day after our extensive explorations. Strolling through the village, we found comfort in the simplicity of a lazy amble, allowing the quaint beauty of the area to rejuvenate our spirits. It was a day less about the miles covered and more about savouring the tranquil moments that define the restorative nature of a getaway.
