One Man and His Camper Van Hits the New Forest!

The latest great creation from the BBC sees Martin Dorey making his way around the UK in a classic 1970s VW camper van just like ours! Martin’s epic journey takes him to meet all sorts of local residents as he stops periodically to discover farms, fisheries, and others holidaying in the area. Delightfully, our intrepid presenter uses the local specialities and traditional fayre to make dinner for his new found friends in the kitchen of his camper van!

Episode 2 is set in the New Forest, where Martin is taken through parts of the forest by a local forager who teaches him good mushrooms from bad (and the very bad!). While he tries to forage for him self and cook his amazing meal, he attracts the attention of a goat as he puts together a French food wonder in his camper kitchen leading to a few laughs and a delicious camper van supper.

If you’re interested in learning how to forage in the New Forest during your stay various hedgerow, mushroom and other courses can be found courtesy of Wild Food, but get in and book early as these exceptionally popular courses get booked up quickly!
