If you are looking for a half term break, then where better than the New Forest National Park and within easy reach of Paultons Park, home of Peppa Pig World?  Twin Oaks Guest House, winner of the TripAdvisor Excellency Award for the last five consecutive years, is ideally placed and easy to find with brown directional signs from junction one of the M27. There are walks through the National Park, with its famous New Forest Ponies, from the Guest House and cycle routes without having to negotiate any busy roads. During the summer months the Open Top Bus stops at the end of the road and the three “hop on, hop off” routes visit “Longdown Activity Farm”, “New Forest Wildlife Park”, “Burley”, “Beaulieu Motor Museum and Stately Home”, “Exbury Gardens”, “Barton on Sea”, “Hurst Castle” etc. and at other times easily reached by car. Bournemouth is only 20 minutes drive away as is Winchester with its Cathedral and Great Hall. “Stone Henge” and the “Historic Dock Yard” and “Spinaker Tower” at Portsmouth are within easy reach. For younger children Paultons Park, home of Peppa Pig World, is only five minutes away by car, and for older children there is “I Go Ape”.

At the end of a busy day there is the possibility of a candle lit dinner at the Sir John Barleycorn, a 12th Century thatched restaurant (steeped in history from the time of King William Rufus) which is immediately opposite Twin Oaks Guest House and wake up to Twin Oak’s award winning breakfast.
