Acres Down House


Situated in the heart of the New Forest, Britain's new National Park, Acres Down House is the ideal location for those looking to get away from it all, and experience the English countryside at it's best. Miles of forest trails leading directly from the front gate make this the perfect base for walkers and cyclists to explore the surrounding area and it's wildlife. Horse riding and bike hire available nearby. Every room has stunning forest and garden views.

Lyndhurst, approx. 2 1/2 miles, for shops, pubs and restaurants, or sample Annie's delicious cream teas at the farm next door. Two local pubs 1 mile.
