Things to do in Mudeford and Lymington


Avon Beach is one of the favourite beaches in the area. The beach is pretty clean and there is a shop, a restaurant (The Noisy Lobster) plus a snack bar, teas and coffees plus loos. Further along the beach you will find the Beach hut also offering teas, and coffees. The beach is literally in front of the park, a promenade connecting the beach to Mudeford Quay.

Mudeford Ferry will take you to Mudeford Spit and Hengistbury Head, where you can either take a land train or enjoy fantastic walks and scenery around on secluded beaches, or up and over the head itself.

Highcliffe castle is but a brief walk away. Every castle has a history, but Highcliffes has a great story. It began in the 1830s, and over the years the Castle has changed ownership and was devastated by two fires, but it still remains standing! Today, the Grade 1 listed Castle is magnificent and charming, and has a great story to tell.


All around Lymington is the beautiful New Forest National Park with delightful walks, drives and cycle paths. Take a trip through the New Forest and you'll see the abundant wildlife, with New Forest Ponies, cattle and donkeys roaming wild. In the autumn pigs are let loose across the New Forest to forage for acorns.

A short drive away, you'll find Beaulieu's famous Motor Museum, Palace and Abbey and the historic shipbuilding village of Bucklers Hard. Exbury gardens and steam railway are also nearby.

Horse riding can be booked at several locations locally and cycle hire is very popular in the New Forest with plenty of bike tracks to explore. The picturesque 9 hole Walhampton Golf Course overlooking the Solent welcomes visitors. And of course, we must mention that Peppa Pig World and Paulton's Theme Park are a 30-40 minute drive away.
