Why Margaret Daubeney chose New Forest

Durmast House is set in the beautiful New Forest area of Hampshire. There are many walks across the heaths and forests. The sea is not very far away with lovely views across the the Isle of Wight.

The gardens of Durmast House are widely regarded as being a typical example of Gertrude Jekyll's English style garden design. The gardens are open fro charity twice a year under the National Garden Scheme.

Location

Car: recommended

The village of Burley is in the centre of the New Forest in beautiful countryside with many interesting walks through the forest with an abundance of flora and fauna and an excellent area for bird watching. Several stables for horse riding are nearby and a golf course very close. Bicycles can be hired in the village.

A day's visit to the Isle of Wight ferry is fun, the boat leaves from Lymington which is about eight miles from Durmast. The beaches are within six miles drive. Christchurch Town with the Abbey and harbour is about 5 mile's drive. Bournemouth and Southampton are equidistant, about 12 miles where there are larger shops, theatres and the Winter Gardens for music in Bournemouth.

There are many lovely gardens to visit such as Mottesfont Abbey, Exbury Gardens, Hilliers, Cranborne Manor. Macpennys, Spinners and many others.

You couldn't ask for more

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. Very high quality, very spacious, very cosy, very nice hosts.

Location is perfect for exploring The New Forest area and coast.

The hosts very accommodating and helpful. And you miss nothing in the holiday flat.

Try and ask about classic cars, and you'll be surprised.

We definitely want to come back and experience more of this area.
