Places to visit

Lymington

The historic town of Lymington offers plenty for the visitor to the New Forest. This colourful coastal town is an ancient seaport with a rich maritime history.

Situated on the west bank of the Lymington River, on the edge of the Solent, Lymington is a major yachting centre with three marinas.

The town began as an Anglo-Saxon village and is recorded in the Domesday Book as ‘Lentune’. From the Middle Ages and up to the 19th century, Lymington was well-known for its salt making and from the early 19th century a thriving ship building industry.

Much of the architecture you see today in Lymington is Georgian and Victorian. The High Street, which looks predominantly Georgian, is in fact made up of an eclectic mix of Georgian, Victorian, Art Deco with some traces of Medieval architecture.

Hurst Castle

Come and discover one of the best days out in the New Forest and visit this artillery fortress built by Henry VIII. With plenty of open space for children to explore and fantastic views of the Isle of Wight, Hurst Castle is a must for visitors to this area.

Walk from the site to the Castle along Hurst Spit and catch the Ferry back to Keyhaven before walking back to the site.

 

Summerlands Coombe Bissett 20th to 23rd June

The site affords peace and tranquillity, with the added bonus of superb panoramic views and level pitches.  It is ideal for a prolonged holiday, or a one night stop over.

The park is situated within Cranborne Chase, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), about six miles SSW of the medieval city of Salisbury, on the edge of the village of Coombe Bissett.  It is set high on the 135m contour line, facing south, in the midst of the rolling Wiltshire chalk downs, which are intersected by many paths and bridleways.
