Will you be our 100th reviewer? Posted August 23, 2014


Will you be the 100th person / family to review Twin Oaks Guest House, winners of a “Trip Adviser Excellency Award” in 2013 and again in 2014 on “trip adviser”, please? We currently have 99 reviews. Twin Oaks Guest House offers a cruise service whereby people stay one or two nights before, or after, their cruise, leave their cars with us and are taken to, and collected from, the cruise terminal. An Open Top Bus stops at the end of the road visiting  Longdown Activity Farm, New Forest Wildlife Park, Lyndhurst, Burley, Ringwood Brewery, Fordingbridge and Sandy Balls. The red route links to the green route for Exbury Gardens, Beaulieu (motor museum and Stately Home) Lymington and Brockenhurst. The red route also links with the blue route for Keyhaven and Hurst Castle (reached by boat), Barton on Sea and Burley. But be quick the open top bus only runs during the summer months from the 28th June to the 14th September. Arthur Conan Doyle the creator of Sherlock Holmes had a house in the forest a few hundred yards from Twin Oaks  and the Rufus Stone (King William Rufus being shot on a hunting expedition to the New Forest) is nearby. For the younger children Paultons Park, famous for Peppa Pig World, is only two minutes drive away. Immediately opposite Twin Oaks is a twelfth century thatched restaurant and there are five other restaurants in the village or, a little further away, there are restaurants over looking the Solent and The Needles at Barton on Sea and High Cliff. Portsmouth with the Historic Dock Yard, Mary Rose and Spinnaker Tower is just half an hours drive away (to the East) as are Bournemouth (to the West), Winchester with its Cathedral and Great Hall (to the north) and Stonehenge about 40 minutes drive. However within a five minutes walk from Twin Oaks you can be amidst New Forest Ponies, Shetland Ponies, Pigs, Cattle, Deer all roaming free within the cattle grid area of the New Forest National Park. An ideal location for a holiday or short break.
