South of London by 2 hours, deep in the New Forest National Park, this village is perhaps one of the most iconic and most visited in the New Forest. Pretty red brick houses, tiny shops, a chocolatier, several good cafes, an excellent garden centre and learning garden make up the tiny High Street.

The area feels loved and chocolate box British.

The Beaulieu River is one of the few privately owned rivers in the world and has been in the ownership of the Montagu family for over 400 years. Land here is tightly held and cherished by residents. The area feels loved and chocolate box British.

Beaulieu Palace, Gardens, Church and Motor Museum rate well on TripAdvisor and we suggest guests go and explore. New Forest Activities base themselves from here and do excellent trips and experiences. We get 10% off for our guests.

You can walk through the fields and forest beside the river to the hamlet of Bucklers Hard, where you can take a boat to the end of the river. It’s a delightful trip.
