A conveniently located, pretty village nestled between the Solent Coast and the New Forest itself, enjoying a good selection of shops and a village pub.

About Hordle

A lovely village between the coast, New Milton, Sway and Lymington. You’ll find everything you need within the village. There’s a little parade of shops with convenience store, takeaway and hairdressers. Elsewhere in Hordle is a post office, pharmacy, petrol station and parish church. For simple traditional food try the village pub, The Three Bells, located close to the petrol station.  Villagers are an active crowd with a busy diary of events throughout the year, including scarecrow competition, arts and crafts exhibitions and village fayre.

In the village is Apple Court Garden, a private residence with beautiful, interesting gardens open to the public on selected days throughout the year. A lovey way to spend a day is at Hordle Lakes. A fishery for all levels and ages. The lakes are a collection of seven individual spring fed fishing lakes, open year around and heavily stocked with coarse fish and carp. Visitors come from all over the UK to fish here, and if you haven’t fished before, they offer tuition.

Fantastic sea location with goods pubs, shops etc

Barton on Sea

A stony beach with sandy areas as the tide goes out, and a great spot to do some fossil hunting. The cliffs are subject to considerable coastal erosion and at times parts of the beach can be cordoned off. The Beachcomber Café on the cliff top is one of the most popular cafés in the region. Plenty of parking in car parks along the cliff top as well as on-road parking.
