Attractions in the New Forest

Many of our guests come determined to explore the New Forest and its surrounding attractions only to find that once they're here, they'd rather relax and do nothing much at all! Having said that, there are some great things to see and do in the local area.


The Solent is renowned for its sailing - day chartering, with or without a skipper, can be arranged in advance - and if you time your visit well, you might see one of the local regattas such as the famous Cowes Week, the Round the Island Race. Also, don't forget the fantastic Southampton Boat Show in September.  Closer to home, the excellent beach at Bournemouth is just half an hour's drive.

Historic Interest

Stately homes worth visiting include Broadlands, the former home of Louis Mountbatten, and Beaulieu, home to the National Motor Museum and the Beaulieu International Autojumble. New Park Manor is one of the finest hotels near, Winchester, Christchurch, Salisbury and the Solent, both are only a short drive away. Those interested in ecclesiastical architecture will almost certainly want to make the effort to visit Salisbury or Winchester Cathedrals.
