Coast & Country

What’s on near Chewton Glen


Sail from Lymington for an unforgettable day out.

Enjoy a glass of champagne as you set sail on your beautiful, large, comfortable and modern yacht. After a few hours of sailing on the Solent you anchor off the Isle of Wight for a delicious freshly prepared two-course meal, served on deck, and the opportunity for a swim! Afterwards there is more sailing as you head back to Lymington – getting involved as much as you wish – or just sitting back and doing nothing but relaxing.

Walks in the Forest

140 miles of tracks and footpath in ancient woodland

Think ancient woodland, beautiful heathland, pretty villages and a 40-mile ‘secret’ coast, anyone with a keen passion for walking will love the variety on offer here.

There are more than 140 miles of tracks and footpath, where you can enjoy easy-to-follow walking routes, short strolls or long-distance trails.

One of the things that makes The New Forest so unique is to see thousands of free-roaming ponies, donkeys, cattle and deer on your travels around the national park.


Play a classic links overlooking the Solent

Barton-on-Sea Golf Club, founded in 1897, is situated on the coastal cliff between Highcliffe and Milford-on-Sea. The current 27 holes are a combination of the original Harry Colt design from 1932 and the newer holes designed by the well-known J. Hamilton Stutt, a founder member of the Association of British Golf Course Architects which were completed in 1992.

Its elegant and imposing clubhouse is truly spectacular, commanding superb views across the Solent to the Needles on the Isle of Wight, along to Old Harry Rocks at Swanage. Situated overlooking the lake and an Island green, the Clubhouse offers something for every golfer. Relax with a drink in the bar or on the balcony, enjoy a delicious meal in the luxurious 120 cover dining room or, perhaps, savour a leisurely Sunday roast lunch. Special evening functions are frequently held and members are welcome to bring guests.
