Summer holiday activities in the Lymington area of the New Forest

During July and August there is so much going in in the Lymington area of the New Forest that there is hardly a week goes by without some fun event. The following is a selection of some of the many events going on - I apologise in advance for the many local village events I must have missed out.
July 1/10 Sway Carnival week, with the main parade usually on the Friday evening, but other events, including a 'fun run', every day.
July 9/11 Ringwood Festival.
July 16/17 Netley Marsh Steam and Craft Show.
July 26-28 New Forest and Hampshire County Show, held near Brockenhurst.
August 1 Burley Antique Fair
August 6-13 Cowes Week Sailing Regatta.
August 20 Damerham Music Festival.
August 27 Milford-on-Sea Carnival Fun Day.
August 29 Brockenhurst Carnival and Fete.
Sept 2/3 Charity Music Festival at Hurst View Site, see www.cobfest.org
One of my particular favourites is the New Forest and Hampshire County Show, which has world class show jumping, a flower show that wouldnt be out of place at Chelsea, craft tents and demonstrations, animal and agricultural exhibits, entertainment, and much more. See http://www.newforestshow.co.uk/ for more details. On a much smaller scale Milford-on-Sea Carnival is a charming village event which goes on all afternoon and evening with entertainment on the village green, a fete, tug- of -war and other side shows, all put on by local people. You may wonder why I have included the Cowes Sailing Regatta. My caravan at Hurst View is only a few minutes walk from the Pennington sea wall and footpath to Keyhaven and Hurst. Well from Hurst Spit or from the footpath along the Pennington sea wall you can get a good view of the sailing boats in the Solent. Many impressive yachts are moored at Lymington during Cowes week, and you can take a boat trip from Lymington to see the Friday night firework display off Cowes sea front. Or you can watch it for free at Calshot or Lepe beach. All this to do if you stay in my holiday caravan www.cogb.com/lymington during the summer holiday.

Lymington Sea Water Baths

Lymington open air Swimming pool near Lymington Marina

The Lymington Sea water Baths were opened in the 1780's, and are the largest on the south coast. They were originally privately owned, and capitalised on the 19th century public health interest in sea water and mud. In 1895 there was even archery and a 12 hole golf course here, but this was closed in the Second World War. They have been in public ownership since 1929 and the Lymington Town council normally open them from May to September. During the school summer holidays local children and holiday makers alike enjoy this popular facility.
If you holiday in the New Forest, in my caravan near Lymington - www.cogb.com/lymington you will be pleased to hear that there are also many lovely beaches nearby where you can enjoy the benefits of salt water bathing, and a public indoor swimming pool at Pennington, just up the road.
