Christmas Breaks

The New Forest invites you to come and stay this Christmas…

Relax in front of our roaring log fires, enjoy a sumptuous Christmas Lunch, treat yourself to a festive mince pie (or two), join in with all of the included entertainment and perhaps even meet Father Christmas! All of this is combined with beautiful scenery all around, take a fresh walk on a crisp winter’s morning, spot the dew drops on the leaves and you never know, you may even spot a robin darting above the snow!
