Things to Do

Things to Do

Some places to visit and things to do locally. Some are energetic and some are less so.

  • Canoeing - We have a couple of Canadian canoes available with paddles and life jackets. The nearest good paddling is on the Beaulieu River or on the Solent near Lymington.
     

  • Cycling in the New Forest. The area is relatively flat with lots of cycle routes nearby. We have a range of cycles. Cycle routes are available online.
     

  • Driving - Either on the lawn tractor (with or without a trailer) to practice your mowing skills or one of the our wheel drive vehicles around the paddocks to practice your doughnutting or harrowing skills.
     

  • Kayaking and Paddleboarding - We have a wide range of kayaks available with paddles and life jackets. The nearest good paddling is on the Beaulieu River or on the Solent near Lymington.
     

  • Radio Control Planes - Single and twin engined electric planes are available. Flying is possible from one of the paddocks or from Furzley Cross, Strawberry Fields Lymington or Beaulieu Airfield.
     

  • Sailing - Dingly sailing is on the Solent from Lymington Town Sailing Club. We keep a Sport 14 in the boat park. Laser and Laser Pico dinghies are also available.
     

  • Shooting - Clay pidgeon shooting every other Sunday morning at Ower Shooting Ground, some days of the week at Spitfire Shoot or any day of the week at Barbury Shooting School.
     

  • Walking - Beautiful walks are possible from the front door into the forest or a short drive will provide many more opportunities.
