Out and About

Moorhill House Hotel is in Burley, a village where the ancient tradition of commoning (where animals are allowed to graze freely in the forest) is still practised.

Prepare to see horses, cows, donkeys and the occasional pig wandering along the main road. It's this practice that makes the New Forest so unique. For the early riser and after dinner walkers keep a look out for the local deer, they are often spotted in the gardens, the car park and whilst on the various walks around the village.

nearby attractions

Burley is only a few miles from the M27, putting it within easy reach of Southampton, Winchester and Bournemouth, while the beaches at Mudeford and Highcliffe are just a short drive away as is Lymington, a market town from where ferries frequently depart for the Isle of Wight. Staying at our Burley hotel means you'll be able to discover the best of the forest whilst also being near to Bournemouth. 

There are many attractions not too far from Burley, such as the Beaulieu Motor Museum, Bucklers Hard, Exbury Gardens, Marwell Wildlife and many more which all make for a great day out and you can purchase your discounted tickets from reception in advance.  For those keen walkers and cyclists why not take a leisurely bicycle ride or walk along the Holmsley railway line. If you don’t have a bike we can organise bike hire for you and have the bike delivered to the hotel. 

You can also enjoy the views of the forest on horse-back with plenty of nearby stables for you to join in a trek with. The New Forest Show in July makes a great day out for all the family, including the dog, while the BIC in Bournemouth always has shows and concerts on to entertain on a wet and windy afternoon or evening.  Be sure to save time to sample the delicious Burley fudge and ice-cream while on your travels.

Whether you travelling to our village hideaway hotel by train, plane, bike or car, Moorhill House Hotel is easy to find. For clear instructions of how to find us visit our directions page.  To find out more about the bewitching village of Burley then click here.
