<ul><li>Ten minutes from my house is the most beautiful area in the south of England. It is called “The New Forest” and people from different parts of England and different countries often come here on holiday. </li></ul><ul><li>The New Forest is a very large area of natural forest and there are a lot of animals that live there. Horses and donkeys walk everywhere and sometimes you can even see pigs, cows and ducks crossing the road. </li></ul><ul><li>What I like about the New Forest is that the colours of the forest change during the year. In autumn the leaves are red and gold and in the spring everything is purple and different shades of green. The trees are always colourful and different. </li></ul><ul><li>Tourists often prefer to go to the small villages in the New Forest with pretty houses and traditional restaurants. I love to walk along the rivers and through the trees because there you can see the true heart of the forest. </li></ul>
