Brockenhurst is in the centre of the New Forest. Its a quaint small village with a handful of shops, including a good bakers! Its a good central location for exploring the rest of the new forest. I stayed at Roundhill campsite just outside(2km) of the village. I then went on to visit Burley, Beaulieu, Barton on Sea, Lymington-all lovely little villages. Watch out for the ponies walking around, even in the main streets of the villages. Didnt think the scenery was anything spectacular but the villages are nice.
