Composed of a scattering of farms and cottages, the little hamlet of Linwood is found towards the western end of the New Forest National Park, not far from Ringwood - a community well served by two pubs renowned for their good food and real ales. The New Forest – the country's smallest National Park – is comprised of 150 square miles of magnificent woodland and heather covered heathland dotted with picturesque villages. The area is famous for its unusual wildlife such as herds of wild ponies, cattle and deer, and a great many species of birds. The forest is full of wonderful paths, which are great for walking, cycling and horse riding with bike hire and pony trekking available from nearby Burley. The famous National Motor Museum at Beaulieu is within easy reach, as are the stunning gardens at Exbury.
