    Lyndhurst

    by LouiseTopp Updated Oct 14, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Lyndhurst is one of the biggest towns in the New Forest, it's also is one of the most interesting. By the visitor centre there's free parking in front of the libuary, the street of shops is just round the corner. there are many gift shops and places to sit, while watching the world go by.

    One of the places to sit for a drink is The Mailmans Arms next to the Stag Inn. You can sit in or outside, sometimes one of those old-fashioned steam rollars might chug by.

    Next to the Mailmans arm's is a garage where they have Ferrari's on display.

    Lyndhurst is worth a visit, and shouldn't be missed when visiting the forest.

    Peaceful worldly villages

    by LouiseTopp Updated May 22, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Ibsley is one quiet village where you can forget you are in the 21st century. Here and there cattle and horses roam at will, fords meander along rivers and there are tearooms and pubs.

    There is a village hall and post office in Ibsley, many houses have cattle grids boardering their property. I don't think my bike likes cattle grids, which can be a bit teeth chattering.

    The signal for mobile phones might die in this area, and your call will always fail.

    Pubs in Gorley are The Royal Oak which doesn't open until 12am Sundays.

    Barton On sea

    by LouiseTopp Updated Sep 15, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Barton is famous for its stretch of shoreline with safe swimming & a cliff top golf course. The cliff and beach are also renowned for the many fossil remains to be found. Barton on Sea is part of the town of New Milton Hampshire, twixt sea & the New Forest, situated south of the A337 (Lymington Road). New Milton town centre is about 3km north of Barton cliff top. It covers approximately 5km of coastline, from Chewton Bunny on the Hampshire/ Dorset borders to Becton Bunny in the east.

    Located at the eastern end of Christchurch Bay, Barton on Sea has stunning views over the Solent &the western end of the Isle of Wight and the “Needles”, with views to Hurst Castle to the east and Christchurch & Hengistbury Head in the west.

    The beach is mainly pebbles & the usual ebb tide level is only about 1.5 metres below high tide level. The seawater quality is of a good standard & as with most coastal areas, is regularly watched.

    It’s some 10km west of the market town & yachting centre of Lymington & is 15 km east of the famous resort of Bournemouth. The New Forest is less than 5 km to the north. Barton is about 130 km from London (140km from Cherbourg) & can be reached by road via the M3 and M27 motorways, A35 & the A337 trunk roads.

  • Burly Village

    by Lifestyles Written Jul 31, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Burly in The New Forest, is a popular destination in this area of Hampshire. Ponies & animals roam freely here, & there are horse+waggon rides which take you into the forest on a tour. There are many gift shops here including The Witche's Covern, home made Cider & cream tea's are a must here. There is one pub here (The Coach House), where all the men vanished when we came here for the day! Bikes can be hired here for the day, & there is also a youth Hostel just up the road.
