About The Area

About the New Forest Area

There are not many places where you can wake up to find a New Forest Pony outside your front door. The New Forest is a wonderful place to live and with easy access to London, Southampton, Winchester and Bournemouth it’s the perfect location.

The New Forest is a place with a lifestyle you can truly enjoy. With vast tracts of unspoilt woodland, heath and stunning coastal surroundings there are many idyllic villages and towns in which to base yourself including Lymington, Brockenhurst, Sway, Milford on Sea, New Milton, Lyndhurst, Beaulieu, Hythe and Barton on Sea.

The New Forest´s atmosphere and traditions stretch back over 900 years. William the Conqueror set aside this incomparable countryside as his own private deer-hunting preserve and many of the unique customs of the area date back to this time. The shores and waters of the nearby Solent provide an exhilarating contrast to the calm of the Forest.

Lymington

A lively yachting town at the mouth of the Lymington River. The lanes and streets around the quayside retain the flavour of a harbour town with Georgian and Victorian cottages, houses and shops. The attractive High Street which leads down to the Town Quay has a market every Saturday. Lymington provides great transport links to the whole of the New Forest. The train line from Lymington Pier/Town to Brockenhurst provides easy access to London Waterloo, Bournemouth and Southampton. The Isle of Wight car and passenger ferry also operates from Lymington to Yarmouth all year round.

Brockenhurst

In the heart of the New Forest this large village is set amid some of the loveliest forestry in this area. The Forest ponies and donkeys often visit the main street of Brockenhurst and graze on the village green. Brockenhurst has frequent trains to London Waterloo with a train journey time of just 1 hour 30 minutes.

Sway

On the very edge of the forest, Sway is a small rural village just north of Lymington. With its very own train station, access to London Waterloo, Southampton and Bournemouth are made easy.

Milford on Sea

A peaceful village within easy access of the New Forest. The beach, mainly shingle, is safe for swimming and has spectacular views of the Isle of Wight and the Needles.

Beaulieu
A charming village situated among the woods and hills on the Beaulieu River. Home to the National Motor Museum, Beaulieu attracts many visitors throughout the year. Beaulieu Road Train Station can be found just over 3 miles away with direct trains through to London Waterloo. 

Hythe
One of the main towns on the 'Waterside' with panoramic views of Southampton Water and easy access to Southampton via Hythe Ferry. The town has a weekly market and has many shops, pubs and restaurants. 

Barton on Sea
