Walks & Local Attractions

Located in the historic New Forest National park.

Perfect for rambling, cycling and horse riding

Set in over 219 sq. miles of woodland and heathland, the New Forest dates back to 1079 when the then King of England, William the Conqueror, designated the area as his personal hunting grounds. Today, it’s one of the most beautiful places to escape to for a few days.

Close to Lymington

Just a couple of minute’s drive, or a short cycle into the historic Georgian market town of Lymington, making it a great destination for locals or tourists alike.

Isle of Wight

We’re also blessed with over 40 miles of coastline and the Isle of Wight ferry is on our doorstep. We are perfectly positioned if you’re taking a trip across to the ‘island’ and in need for refreshment!
