Location

What better place to practice forest bathing than in the beautiful New Forest, as recommended by Dr. Qing Li - one of the world's leading experts on forest bathing. Proclaimed a royal forest by William the Conqueror and now a National Park, the New Forest is host to incredibly diverse wildlife, a range of different habitats, the highest concentration of ancient trees in Western Europe and, of course, the famous New Forest ponies. Covering 120 square miles, the New Forest is spectacular, magnificent and peaceful. During your stay, you will have a tour of the forest and beaches.
