Visitors to this Ringwood cottage are welcome to participate in the calendar of organised events and use the numerous park facilities, including a children's play area and visitor centre with cafe.

About the location

AVON HEATH COUNTRY PARK

Ringwood 2 miles; Bournemouth 10 miles.

Avon Heath Country Park, Dorset’s largest park, can be found just 2 miles west of Ringwood and 10 miles north of Bournemouth. This well-managed park consists of large areas of heathland, scattered with pine trees, while purple banks of heather provide a stunning site in summer. A great deal of conservation work has resulted in attracting several rare species of birds and reptiles, together with a resident deer population. Visitors can participate in a wide variety of events at the Visitors Centre, which also offers a children’s play area, countryside shop and cafe, or enjoy access to over 2 miles of marked walking and cycle trails. Alternatively, take the short drive to the family-friendly seaside resort of Bournemouth, explore the nearby New Forest National Park or take a boat trip around the islands of Poole Harbour. This fascinating area offers a super holiday destination for all the family.
