Looking for a somewhere to stay in order to visit Southampton Boat Show? Twin Oaks Guest House, winner of the TripAdviser Excellency Award for the last six consecutive years, is ideally placed within 15 minutes drive and easy to find with brown directional signs from junction one of the M27.

Extend your stay beyond your visit to the Boat Show and enjoy the facilities of the New Forest. 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. 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, an 11th 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
