New Forest Activities

If you're looking for things to do on your break then we can help. Float in an indoor swimming pool, play croquet and badminton, relax in a Nordic sauna and organise a giant jenga competition – and that's before you step outside of the hotel's grounds.

In the New Forest itself you really are spoilt for choice. You can go for a hack with one of the many riding stables, play a game of golf or two in beautiful countryside, take a trip to the coast for some swimming and surfing, go kayaking in rivers that snake through woods or go shopping in one of the villages.

If you fancy cycling but don't have your own bike then our staff at New Forest Hotels can organise a bike hire for you. All you have to do is pre-book with our friendly reservations team at least 48 hours before arrival.There are gravel and grass tracks throughout the national park, allowing you to cover great distances every day. Most of the roads in the New Forest have a speed limit of 40mph allowing a more relaxed cycling experience. There are so many cycling routes across the forest which show off some of the prettiest scenery including the heathlands, woods, wildlife and pretty and picturesque villages.

There is so much to do in the New Forest but don't overlook the old favourite: walking. All trails and tracks are open to the public unless marked, allowing visitors to walk for miles in whatever direction they please, a dog walkers paradise. We sell walking and cycling maps at all the hotels' receptions.
