Just 90 minutes from London Waterloo
There are 220 square miles of ancient woods, meadows and heathlands to explore in this National Park, which is home to 9000 free roaming ponies, donkeys and cattle who don’t bat an eyelid as you pass by. Come to see wonderful landscapes filled with wild-flowers, chocolate box villages and vibrant wildlife. With no mountains or huge hills to climb, walking and cycling are relatively easy with many routes passing historic pubs for a bite to eat. This is a year-round destination and probably one of the most dog-friendly holiday hot spots in the UK.
