Our New Forest Twixmas Itinerary

Plan an excursion and try out some of the bestpubs in the New Forest ahead of 2018

The down days between Christmas and New Year can be a strange time; all the hustle and bustle of Christmas has passed, yet rather than relaxing we find ourselves thinking ahead in anticipation of the New Year. There’s plenty of things to do in the New Forest during this time and with our Bit In The Middle rates, you can stay with us between Christmas and New Year from just £75 per night including a full New Forest breakfast. See what’s going on below.

Burley Fudge, 2 The Mall, Burley, BH24 4BS

There’s nothing better than indulging in sweet treats over the festive period! Located in the heart of the New Forest, Burley Fudge are experts at their craft and make delicious, handmade confectionery. You can join them for a unique fudge tasting experience where you will try many different flavours and combinations – what a perfect way to end the year. Whatever you buy can be enjoyed by our open fire. Blissful!

Winter Paddling runs until March 2018

The Old Forge, Beaulieu, Hampshire, SO42 7YA

During winter, the Beaulieu River makes its way through some breath-taking sites and locations.

It’s an ideal way to explore Lymington or if you prefer, head to Hythe and you can browse fine produce, delicatessen, flowers, gifts and much more.
