Adventure awaits…

 We are ideally positioned within the New Forest National Park,  and we therefore have hundreds of miles of walking and cycling tracks at our fingertips!! So, put on your walking or cycling shoes and explore the Forest from our back garden. We have secure bike storage, and we know it can be muddy out there so if you need us to launder anything just let us know.  However, we also advise in the winter to bring your wellies and we look forward to serving you a well deserved dinner or afternoon treat afterwards and finding out where you went.

We don’t have bikes to hire at the moment but you can hire bikes locally and we would advise booking in advance during busy periods.
