The Central Southern England region
The New Forest is the perfect spot for a holiday in the UK. Miles of unspoilt forest, open heathland with ponies, donkeys and cows wandering freely. Walk or cycle for miles, many pubs to stop for lunch or simply enjoy one of the many beautiful beaches on the nearby South Coast. A day trip to the Isle of Wight, visits to one of the many attractions in the surrounding area. Wonderful Cathedral Cities of Winchester and Salisbury are both within 40 minutes drive, visit Stonehenge or the Jurassic coast.
North Gorley is a small, slightly spread out, Village in the New Forest. The ponies and donkeys wander along the roads and around the house at all times. We have a local pub, The Royal Oak, within a 10 minute walk of Venards Lodge and a fantastic Farm Shop, Hockeys, is 5 minutes walk away. Meander down the road to pick up your newspaper and milk in the mornings if you want to, stopping to say hi to our pet pigs, Posh and Becks, en route.
