If you are looking for things to do in the New Forest and places to visit, you will find that The Bell Inn is perfectly positioned at the heart of the woodland with easy access to everything that this gorgeous National Park has to offer.

Why not explore the 80,000 acres of New Forest on the myriad of routes on either two feet or two wheels, directly from our doorstep. If you’re staying with us, we can even pack a picnic for you to enjoy when you’re out and about.  Or, if you’re looking to play some golf in the New Forest why not pack your clubs and test yourself on our two, diverse 18-hole courses: the Manor Course or Forest Course – a challenge for any handicap!

As well as the largest heathland in the world, the New Forest is surrounded by 26 miles of coastline and famous tributaries, such as the River Test, offering you perfect spot for fly fishing in some of the most beautiful countryside in Hampshire.

Keen photographers won’t be disappointed either with the surrounding areas inspiring some of the best opportunities for wildlife and landscape photography – you’re never short of things to do in the New Forest

Sticky fingers, muddy boots and wet paws are all welcome at our friendly New Forest accommodation, perfect for all.
