If you enjoy visiting gardens there are Exbury and Furzey Gardens as well as Lepe Country Park. Lymington is only 4 miles away and is a lovely town with a selection of gift shops and a large Market on Saturday or you can just watch the yachts on the Solent at the Quay. The sea is only a 20 minute drive from the Cloud Hotel or you can get the Ferry from Lymington and visit the Isle of Wight for the day.
From Saturday 23rd July until Sunday 10th September there is a Beach Bus that links Lymington and Hythe via Bucklers Hard, Beaulieu and Lepe Country park. There is a free ice cream for every ticket sold as well as great discounts at attractions along the route.
A popular way of seeing the New Forest is by an open-top bus. There are 3 routes around the New Forest starting on Saturday 8th July until Sunday 10th September you can enjoy the stunning views of the New Forest with an interesting commentary and also offering great discounts at attractions en route.
If none of this appeals to you there are cinemas and shops at Southampton and Bournemouth and an excellent train service from Brockenhurst if you didn't want to drive and have the worry of parking.
Finally the big event in the New Forest is the New Forest and Hampshire County Show taking place in Brockenhurst from Tuesday July 25th until Thursday July 27th. This is a great day out for all the family for more details look at their website. We still have a few rooms available for this week so don't leave it too late to book as this week gets very busy and accommodation is hard to get at the last minute.
I look forward to welcoming you to the Cloud Hotel to let us look after you and give you the holiday you deserve.
