About Redlynch

The village of Redlynch is very close to neighbouring villages – Woodlands and Lover. Being in the north of the New Forest, Redlynch is only 6 miles from the cathedral city of Salisbury, and a mere 20-minute drive to the family theme park Paultons Park – home of Peppa Pig World. Surrounded by beautiful forest and countryside there are endless walks and cycle trails. Your closest convenience store and post office is a ten-minute walk into Woodfalls. More shops and supermarkets can be found in Salisbury and Fordingbridge – 7 miles away. You won’t have to get in the car for good food. For a small village, visitors are well looked after with options for takeaways and a good Indian restaurant. There are two pubs within walking distance. The Kings Head in Redlynch has a deservedly excellent reputation for lovely home-cooked dishes with well-kept real ales and a great wine selection. Inside there’s an inglenook log burner roaring away in the winter months. In the summer, take a table outside in the pretty beer garden. Take a 10 – 15-minute walk from Redlynch to the Woodfalls Inn which serves traditional and Continental food in their conservatory.
