Getting around the New Forest on your Caravan Holiday
Most people arrive in the New forest by car, although the rail, coach and bus links to the New Forest and Lymington are very good. However once you get there you are sure to want to get off the beaten track and explore, and there are many ways to do this. You can take a Wagon Ride through the Forest, either from Brockenhurst - tel 01344 627722, or from Burley - tel 07786371843. Or travel further afield with the NF Horsedrawn Omnibus Company - tel 07852 208048, or www.thenewforest.co.uk/tourbus.html Or if you fancy taking to the water try Puffin Cruises - tel 07850 947618, and take a variety of boat trips around the Solent or to the Isle of Wight. And if you want to be more hands on you can hire a boat from Christchurch Quay and go up or down river. If you cannot bring your own bicycles you can hire them on site in high season, or from Brockenhurst, http://www.countrylanes.co.uk/ and cycle down the lane from my caravan www.cogb.com/lymington and along the cycle path to Keyhaven or Milford-on-Sea, or to Lymington or through the many other cycle ways around the New Forest.
