The Georgian market town of Lymington is set on the coast in the beautiful New Forest National Park, between Southampton and Bournemouth. Famous for its sailing history, there are two large marinas filled with fishing boats and yachts, as well as two sailing clubs. The town's narrow streets are lined with pretty period cottages and houses, as well as plenty of local pubs and restaurants.
Lymington is surrounded by the beautiful countryside of the New Forest, where opportunities for outdoor activities are abundant. The Solent Way footpath provides a great coastal walk with fantastic views of the Needles and the Isle of Wight. Located just outside of the town is the Wightlink ferry port, from which a car ferry travels to Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight.
The New Forest National Park is home to endless villages with their own quirky histories, and there are all kinds of family attractions and things to see. You can't miss the wild New Forest ponies roaming the park, and they've been a common sight throughout the area for more than 2000 years. If you're thinking about an active New Forest Holiday, you'll find miles of cycle routes and walks to enjoy too.
The New Forest is home to more family attractions. The New Forest Tour is a must during a holiday, as the open top bus takes visitors right through the heart of the stunning region for the best possible views, and they even let cycles on. Beaulieu is another favourite New Forest attraction, and with its Palace House and famous National Motor Museum it's all rather grand!
Within a ten mile drive are the popular towns of Christchurch and Bournemouth. Both inviting with a range of activities including fishing, historical museums and Dorset's number one family theme park Adventure Wonderland.
