  • "The accommodation was fine, and situated conveniently within easy walking distance into town for pubs/restaurants/takeaways."

    Also close to lots of good walking areas on the heath. My wife and I however, both in our 70s, did not find eating very comfortable, and had to bring the two patio garden chairs inside. The choice otherwise was either to eat off a low coffee table, or at a small table whilst perched on a very high stool. But we had our main meal out every day, so only encountered the problem with breakfast. I am sure that for younger couples all would be absolutely fine.

  • "Lovely little dog friendly place to stay, owners were great, had lots of information regarding pubs / restaurants within walking distance, popular walks etc."

    During our stay the petrol crisis happened and Richard even sent me a text to let me know when the local garage was open We would definitely stay here again if we come back to the New forest.

About the location


Salisbury 11 miles; Bournemouth 18 miles.

Fordingbridge is a traditional Hampshire town on the banks of the River Avon, and offers a good mix of shops, pubs and restaurants, a small museum of local history and a display of original work by the artist Augustus John, who lived here for many years. The medieval Great Bridge, with seven graceful arches, is a major feature of the town. The immediate area is a wonderful place for visitors, with its beautiful scenery, nature havens, cycleways and welcoming people. Fordingbridge is conveniently situated for the magnificent cathedral city of Salisbury to the north, and the super seaside resort of Bournemouth to the south. The stunning New Forest National Park is only 1.5 miles from the town, where you can explore thousands of acres of moor, heath and woodland frequented by wild ponies, and dotted with quaint villages and country pubs. Within a short drive is the magnificent Elizabethan manor house at Breamore, as well as the New Forest Water Park, and a trip to Beaulieu, home of the National Motor Museum is not to be missed. This is a great location for exploring this picturesque and interesting area.
