New Forest

Breaks to the New Forest blend rural countryside and heritage, transporting you to a bygone era in a national park that was once a hunting forest for royalty but now protects an array of wildlife. New Forest ponies and donkeys able along the roadsides, often crossing at their leisure and stopping the traffic, but that’s all part of the charm. Discover the historic town of Beaulieu with its ruined medieval abbey, National Motor Museum and the picturesque Beaulieu River. Stop in small villages for afternoon tea or walk the country lanes to an historic thatched pub. Breaks to the New Forest are easily accessed by road or rail, and perhaps continue your adventure from the harbour town of Lymington and take a ferry to the Isle of Wight.
