The Hampshire region

There is something for everyone in The New Forest, whether you're looking to relax, explore or just enjoy. It is a mosaic of ancient and ornamental woodland, open heather-covered heaths, rivers and valley mires, a coastline of mudflats and saltmarshes, and pretty, historic villages. Lowland heath once covered much of southern England but the New Forest National Park is now the largest area that remains.


This is a great place to relax and enjoy the fresh air and countryside. Lovely country walks locally, in the Avon valley of Godshill and Woodgreen area of the New Forest. If you want to know about the area we can offer a few tips and recommendations and point you in the right direction for walks or pubs. We know the area well and can recommend any number of activities. However, if you just want to take it easy then you are in the right place.

By the time you arrive at Walnut Cottage B&B you will already have absorbed some of the flavour of the New Forest – the ponies, the donkeys, the deer if you are lucky. For walkers and bird watchers this location is heaven but remember to bring walking boots or wellies!
