The New Forest is an area of outstanding beauty with open countryside freely inhabited by donkeys, ponies and cattle. As a national park the whole area is open for visitors to enjoy. Within the park the picturesque towns of Brockenhurst, Lymington and Beaulieu are all worth a visit and are all within 15 minutes of Defoe House. Once visited you'll understand why people are drawn to this area year after year.
Defoe House is ideally placed for exploring the New Forest with many attractions nearby. Children's activities include Moors Valley, Paultons Park, the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu, Longdown Dairy Farm, bicycle hire, Lymington salt water baths (summer only!), kayaking on the Beaulieu River and numerous riding stables to name but a few. Garden-lovers can treat themselves to the delights of Exbury, Spinners and Furzey Gardens, all of which are within 30 minutes from the property. For those wishing to visit the Isle of Wight, the ferry terminal is only 5 minutes away in Lymington. Further afield the historic dockyard of Portsmouth and also Bournemouth and Winchester are under an hour away.
