Hi Andy and Jill. Can you tell me what the New Forest is?
Thats what i always think of Blodyn, the new forest & pony's anyway hope the rain keeps of for you both have a nice day.
My memory is of the ponies too...and how they kept lifting up the sunbeds that my Husband & I were lying on! They just grabbed the bottom edge of the beds with their teeth and lifted! We gave up trying to relax. That was about 28 years ago...never forgotten!
Marguerite - it's an area of forest in the south of England, very beautiful. It used to be much bigger and is called the 'New Forest' because it was planted by one of the Kings of England hundreds of years ago and was new to him!!! The name stuck. It gets a bit crowded in the summer as so many people go to enjoy it. You can camp on designated sites around the forest. There are New Forest Ponies there, they are small and roam wild, but are owned by local people.
Hi Marquerite, New Forest details as follows:- The New Forest is an area of southern England which includes the largest remaining tracts of unenclosed pasture land, heathland and old-growth forest in the heavily-populated south east of England, and has National Park status. The contiguous New Forest habitat covers south west Hampshire and some of south Wiltshire. Additionally the New Forest local government district is a subdivision of Hampshire which covers most of the forest, and some nearby areas. There are many small villages dotted around the area.
Spritzhenry, We've visited Somerset, Nether Stowey was the last venue, beautiful.
Well, that's SOOOO near us - so if you decide to come again, let me know first and I'll send you my address - you can have a tour and a cuppa!
And dont forget Bristol to see the smallest garden in the Yellow Book.!!
No worries Grenville.
