Here on the edge of the New Forest, England’s most recent National Park, motorists, motorcyclists, cyclists and walkers enjoy roads and tracks through over 90,000 acres of forest and heathland.

Animals, including ponies, cows, donkeys, pigs and deer wander completely freely and have the right of way.

There are many picturesque villages tucked away to explore with traditional thatched cottages, farms, shops and tea-rooms.

The Unique laws of the forest allow access to any trail or track on the open forest making it ideal for walking, cycling or horse riding. There are many riding schools which  which cater for novice or experienced riders.

There are also a variety of golf courses throughout the area, including Hamptworth, just a few miles away.

The New Forest offers the visitor plenty to see and do and The Shoe Inn makes an ideal base for visiting places of interest such as Beaulieu, Bucklers Hard, Exbury Gardens, Wilton House, Paultons Park home of "Peppa Pig World", Marwell Zoo, the Historic Shipyard at Portsmouth and the towns of Salisbury, Lymington, Southampton and Bournemouth.


Kerry, Kevin & The Team welcome you to The Shoe Inn.
