Itinerary

 

Burley depicts everything you would expect from a traditional, New Forest village. Nestling in the lee of a hill surrounded by an area of true outstanding natural beauty. A dramatic contrast of colourful heathlands, mighty oaks, beeches and lofty pines.

Ponies and cattle roam freely around this lovely village, following ancient forest tracks used for centuries by Commoners and their livestock. Burley is one of the few remaining villages that still practices the old tradition of Commoning, allowing animals to graze on the Open Forest. Picturesque thatched cottages tucked away in unexpected places help conjure up images of how life was in days gone by. Burley has remained untouched by time, steeped in old customs and history, allowing visitors to unwind and enjoy its tranquil atmosphere.
