As if the ravishing scenery wasn’t enough, wild ponies, deer, donkeys and cattle all roam freely and only 90 minutes from London.

You can see why they say it’s easy to arrive and difficult to leave.

Dog Walking

Join us on the last Saturday of the month for our Monthly pub dog walk.

We meet at the pub for 10:00am for complimentary tea, coffee, and a bacon bap and set off at approximately 10:30 for a lovely 4.5Km bimble through Roydon Woods through to Setley Heath and arriving back at the Pub just in time for a spot of lunch.

If you’d like to join us, give us a ring.


There’s plenty to do right on the doorstep with the Georgian market town of Lymington (head’s up their seafood festival is 16th – 18th July this year), the Beaulieu Motor Museum & Exbury Gardens & Steam Railway.

Paulton’s Park, including Peppa Pig World, is also just a short drive away.
