About this location
The Hampshire region
The friendly and lively village of Milford on Sea has the Green at its centre, with traditional shops around it. Three welcoming pubs, tea rooms, a wine bar, and a wide choice of restaurants (including French, Indian, and Thai cuisine) are all here in Milford village. Or just buy your fish and chips in the village, and stroll down to the beach to enjoy them with the setting sun.
Relax and unwind on Milford's uncrowded beach, with its seafront promenade cafe overlooking the Isle of Wight. The coastline is fantastic, with great views towards Bournemouth, the Jurassic coast and across to the Needles and the Isle of Wight. Its an easy walk from Little Egret to Keyhaven harbour where you can take the regular local ferry to Hurst Castle and the lighthouse, or further on to Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight. (car ferry from Lymington). (Hurst Castle, built by Henry VIII to defend the Solent – and where Charles I was imprisoned before his trial & execution in London in 1649, is a pleasant 45 minute walk along the shingle bank from Milford's beach) - and you could catch the ferry back to Keyhaven and have a refreshment stop at the !8th century Gun Inn (fresh locally caught crab a speciality, and log fires in the winter).
Around the village many varied footpaths lead you through public woodland, along the Danestream, or down to the coast and up on to the clifftops to enjoy the panoramic sea views. It's only a short drive to exploring more in the New Forest National Park, with roaming ponies, deer and cattle to be seen. There are marked, circular walking trails, starting and finishing at centrally placed New Forest car parks – and have a clear map displayed at their starting point. (None is more than a 2.5 mile enjoyable walk - a great way to see a bit of the new Forest area before a cream tea treat or Sunday lunch !) Or simply take a picnic to enjoy at one of the many picnic areas.
The area is a wildlife haven and popular with bird enthusiasts. Walks straight from the door to the local nature reserve, and the Keyhaven saltmarshes - a favourite place to see swans, Brent geese, oyster catchers and curlew. The mix of beach, sea, cliffs and the New Forest make it an exceptional place to visit.
The whole area offers something to do whatever the season or weather. Visiting the New Forest area in the autumn is a great time of year to capture all the wonderful changing colours and fungi of the forest with your camera.
Cycling, golf and horse riding are popular local activities too.
Cosy and traditional forest and village pubs are a welcome resting stop after an invigorating walk. And if you fancy a little pampering, there are two excellent beauty parlours right here in Milford.
The attractive town of Lymington with its cobbled quay, and marina is a short drive away - a lively and varied street market is held every Saturday, with tempting courtyard cafes for a refreshment stop.
Also within easy reach (by car or local transport) are Beaulieu, Bournemouth and Christchurch and on to Poole Harbour and Brownsea Island, with its unique wildlife, and easily accessed by ferry.
During the summer months you can take the Hop-On, Hop-Off New Forest bus tour from Milford on Sea - a great 'car free' way to experience a wide area of the New Forest National Park.
A short drive from Milford to the village of Hythe gives you the opportunity to take a ride on the World's oldest pier train to the end of the 130 year old pier, from where you can catch the regular ferry to Southampton. Here you'll find the Tudor House, Art Gallery and the Sea City Museum with its unique exhibition and interactive story of the Titanic. A free bus service from the docks takes you into Southampton and to the varied shops at West Quay that should satisfy the most enthusiastic shopper, and perhaps take in a show at the Mayflower Theatre too.
Throughout the year, Milford's village green is the centre for many events including Music and Arts week, the popular plant fair, and the Food Festival to mention just a few.
We also have the vibrant and modern Community Centre near to the green, where many different daytime classes and events take place. Evenings are busy too with film shows, concerts and a wide variety of other performances. A popular venue for both locals and visitors alike.
In winter, Bournemouth and Winchester host their special Christmas markets (Winchester also having its seasonal outdoor ice rink from November).
Here in Milford on Sea, early in December, we celebrate the run up to Christmas in true festive spirit, with evening carols around the Village Green, and late night shopping with complimentary mince pies & sherry. Father Christmas makes a visit too !
Just a few of the popular places to visit in the locality are the attractive village of Beaulieu and its National Motor Museum, Abbey and Palace House, Exbury Gardens, Furzey Gardens and Lepe Country Park with its expansive beach.
Popular also with families are the attractions of Paultons Park (Peppa Pig World) , The New Forest Wildlife Park, Adventure Wonderland (nr Bournemouth), and Farmer Palmer's Farm Park.
Milford on Sea
The wide stretches of shingle and sandy beaches along the South Coast are both stunning on a Summer's day, and exhilarating on a Winter's day walk or cycle ride, with the high waves crashing in. Here in Milford on Sea, protected by the Isle of Wight, we usually enjoy a milder climate than other places further back from the coast. Throughout the year, the different seasons always bring new things to see and discover.
At the bridge down near Milford beach, children of all ages can enjoy the popular pastime of 'crabbing'.
