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.

A lovely location within the country park with very helpful rangers on site. We would recommend this to anyone.

Had a lovely time with my family, nice view from the Chalet. Beautiful walks around the forests within the parks, nice and peaceful. Would like to say thank you to the Rangers for welcoming us. Will definitely come back.

The secure garden for dogs and the locality. The heating system was efficient and plentiful supply of logs.
Mrs Ribbons, Holmfirth, October 2012
The location of the chalet was superb as were the rangers, who were friendly and helpful. The sitting room with the log burner was a highlight, warm and welcoming. The garden was fantastic, both for our 3 year old niece and the dog we brought with us.
