Lyndhurst and Brockenhurst
Lyndhurst is home to the New Forest Centre, which offers a unique insight into the Forest’s history and heritage, right back from its creation by William the Conqueror. For car enthusiasts, take a trip past Meridien Morena garage to see gleaming Ferraris and Maseratis lined up for your viewing pleasure. And with an array of high street and independent shops, as well as tea rooms, pubs, cafes and restaurants, there’s plenty to do to while away a lazy afternoon. Lyndhurst is a 20 minute drive from The Mill.
Brockenhurst is within the New Forest National Park, surrounded by wild ponies, deer and cows. If visiting in spring, take a visit to the Rhinefield Ornamental Drive for beautiful rhododendrons in bloom. Brockenhurst boasts the busy Brookley Road shopping area and has plenty of cafes, pubs and restaurants to choose from when you’ve done exploring nature. Brockenhurst is just a short 12 minute drive from The Mill.
