Romantic activities in the New Forest

Whatever you get up to in the New Forest it will no doubt be full of magic and love:

Romantic walks in the New Forest 

With its much-anticipated arrival just around the corner, we’ve put together the perfect itinerary to make your day that extra bit special. After all, it only comes around once a year.

Breathe in the fresh air and have your love letters to hand as you start the day with a pit stop at Lover Village. A picture-perfect spot in the north of the forest, rumour has it, if you post a letter in their letterbox your love will last eternally. 

Then head south to Knightwood Oak, just outside of Lyndhurst, at 600 years old and more than seven metres round, the tree is bound to bring some blessings of longevity to your relationship. Now it’s time for some relationship bonding with a visit to New Forest Activities. Whether it’s kayaking, canoeing, archery or cycling, hours of fun and memories will be made here. As you begin tiring from the day’s adventures, head over to The Drift for a meal of home comforts and wholesome hot pots. 

After being suitably served at The Drift, it’s time to return to your luxurious suite for the night. Choose from Bartley Lodge’s Charles Lyell Suite, Burley Manor’s Shepherd’s Hut or Beaulieu Inn’s Grand Deluxe Double for sunsets and cocktails aplenty. Not forgetting the tranquil views of New Forest Ponies, neighbouring deer and trailing lawns as you snuggle up for the evening.

As Valentine’s Day draws to a close, remember to set an alarm for your relaxing wellbeing treatment at Burley Manors treatment rooms the following morning. Choose from a selection of luxurious treatments.

We truly hope you have enjoyed your visit to the New Forest and your Valentine’s day, however you chose to spend it.
