Spring is almost here Posted February 17, 2014


Walking is a wonderful way to see the New Forest National Park close up, with dozens of walk routes that take you into the woods, along the coast, over heathland or by rivers and streams. Experience the colours of changing seasons and the diverse flora and fauna.

One of the special qualities of the National Park is the freedom to ramble across unenclosed land. From April to July there may be signs asking people to avoid certain areas to limit disturbance to rare breeding birds, such as snipe, curlew and redshank. These birds nest on the ground in wet areas.

Bicycles can be hired and horse riding arranged.

Twin Oaks is ideally situated for a holiday in the New Forest and outings to Bournemouth to the West, the historic dockyard at Portsmouth to the East or the Cathedral and Great Hall of Winchester to the north. Our guests also frequently visit Stonehenge. Within the New Forest there is Beaulieu with its stately home and National Motor Museum, Butlers Hard and Twin Oaks is only two minutes drive from Peppa Pig.
