The Central Southern England region
The Stables is less than 1/4 mile outside one of England's greatest assets - the New Forest. In 1079 it was commandeered by William the Conqueror as his "hunting ground". Perfect for a relaxing break or romantic weekend, the Forest is still as stunning as it was then with much of the landscape and many traditions unchanged since medieval times..
The World Heritage site of Stonehenge with its ancient stone circles, the medieval cathedral of Salisbury, the Beaulieu Motor Museum, Animal and Bird sancturies and many other places of interest all within easy driving distance. Weymouth Bovington Tank Museum and Monkey World are all within an hour's drive from The Stables. Other activities such as golf and Go Ape, the ultimate adventure experience, can be found at Moors Valley Country Park.
The New Forest National Park has picturesque villages, welcoming inns, and thousands of acres of rugged moor, heath and woodland populated by the famous wild ponies. The magnificent Elizabethan manor house at Breamore, and the home of the National Motor Museum, Beaulieu, are unmissable attractions of this beautiful area.
Blashford lakes, located within the Avon Valley on the western edge of the New Forest, is a 490-acre wildlife reserve and is only a short walk from The Stables.
