Beaulieu Road is a remote station in the New Forest National Park, a large area of heathland and ancient woodland with native ponies wandering freely.
In summer (early July to early September) the New Forest Tour buses pass the station and they are a good way to see and explore the New Forest.
For walking and cycling in the New Forest I recommend the Ordnance Survey 1:25000 Explorer map: OS map New Forest.
You can also subscribe to OS Maps Online to view and print detailed maps covering all of England, Scotland and Wales, excellent value if you plan to explore several areas and there's a 7-day free trial period too: OS Maps Online
