New Forest Camping - Sunday

Apologies for the lack of artistic presentation today - I've got so many posts to catch up on I haven't enough time to create fancy collages for all of them.

New Forest ponies and miniature Shetland ponies roam freely around the whole of the national park, including our campsite. Matin got the fright of his life when he was woken in the morning by a loud hurrumph right next to our heads! (the last campsite we stayed on didn't have ponies).

Proper fairy toadstool! I was so excited - I've never seen one in real life before! When I spotted it took it as a sign that we'd chosen the right place to pitch camp.

We mostly lazed about on Sunday morning. We had planned to visit the car boot sale near the campsite we stayed at last time, but it only runs during the summer months so it wasn't on :( So we spent the rest of the afternoon just trundling around the New Forest, admirning the scenery and picturesque villages.

We wished we were staying in this glamorous Airstream, but we were comfortable enough in a family-size tent borrowed from Joanna.


  1. I love it that you wore a dress and hat and looked all lady-like to go camping! Most people look like crap - even when not camping. The pony is cute, but I would be a bit weirded out to wake up to that too. I'm used to watching out for bears, but ponies? Who knew?

  2. Lovely dress Charlotte. The telephone kiosk shot is great

  3. Do love your account of your camping stay in the New Forest Charlotte. I do admire the photography - looks somewhat professional? Should you plan another trip to the New Forest, I run a personal Blog on the area at - Many thanks for sharing your experiences. Best regards, Steve


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
