Rural retreats in the New Forest, retreats in Milford on Sea
When staying in the pretty town of Milford on Sea, why not spend some time exploring the northern section of the forest? Encompassing less woodland and more open heathland, it’s quieter than the south yet boasts a number of important historic sites. One not to be missed is the Rufus Stone, which marks the spot where William II, son of William the Conquerer, was killed. Shot by an arrow fired by Walter Tyrell in 1100, the stone stands as a poignant reminder of the King. With an excellent network of walking and cycling trails surrounding, it’s definitely worth a visit during your stay.
