|Newlands Manor is in a very good situation, being on the edge of the New Forest National Park whilst at the same time being only one and a half miles from the sea.
William the Conqueror established the New Forest in 1079 for hunting the Royal Deer – it is certainly not new! Many customs and traditions continue and it is rich in history and heritage. The famous ponies are all owned by the Commoners whose properties open onto the forest and have “Forest Rights” attached to them. The most important of these is the Right of Pasture. They can turn out to graze their ponies, cattle, donkeys and some sheep and pigs in the Forest and they play an important part in the landscape.
Cycling , walking and horse-riding are all good ways of exploring and enjoying this wonderful area.
We have two mountain bikes which can be loaned if arranged in advance, together with a cycle rack for your car. We also have special cycle maps for the area.
There are several stables nearby which have facilities for skilled or novice riders and they all have easy access to the Forest.
The cliffs at Milford on Sea are excellent for walking, with good views of the Needles. You can walk along the shingle bank to Hurst Castle which is the nearest point to the Isle of Wight and there is a small ferry if the walk back does not seem a good idea.
A pleasant walk of 15 minutes is to go via a series
of footpaths to the village of Milford on Sea.
Situated around the village green is a post office,
a chemist, a newsagent, an off licence, a bank with
a cash dispenser, 2 mini stores open 8.0 am till late,
a butcher, a greengrocer, a model shop, tea rooms,
ladies and gentlemen's hairdressing, a health spa,
a chiropodist, a dentist, ladies dress shops, a launderette
and a fish and chip shop. In the village there is also
a fresh fish shop, a health centre, three pubs and
There is Maypole dancing on the green on the May
Day Bank Holiday and the Milford Carnival in August.
