Holt Forest and adjacent Holt Wood are two separate areas of ancient woodland which form part of the 488 hectare Holt Heath National Nature Reserve, which also includes one of Dorsets largest remaining areas of lowland heathland.

Holt Heath National Nature Reserve is designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest; so this is a wonderfully diverse location for wildlife, walking, cycling and riding.

The property itself has half an acre of lawned garden to enjoy. Within easy driving you will be able to explore the south coast, which boasts the Blue Flag beaches of Bournemouth, Poole, Jurassic coast, (UNESCO World Heritage Sites) and the Isle of Wight.

Other attractions on offer include Brownsea Island, Bovington Tank Museum, Corfe Castle, Longleat, New Forest National Park, Monkey World, The National Motor Museum at Beaulieu, Stonehenge and Avebury (UNESCO World Heritage Site). Pub 13/4 miles, shop and post office 31/4 miles.
