About Tiptoe

Tiptoe is a peaceful little village of around 500 residents, surrounded by wondrous countryside, woods and streams.  You won’t find any double, nor single yellow lines here. Expect cyclists, horse riders and free roaming wildlife along the network of lanes along with the odd horse and trap. The relaxing and laid back atmosphere shrouds a flourishing, active community with two churches, primary school, two pubs and a farm shop. Tiptoe presents an exemplary example of a community Village Green, paid for and maintained by the villagers.

For your holiday essentials head to Danestream Farm Shop. An impressive destination for fruit, veg, dairy and freshly baked pies. The instore bakery bakes bread, cakes and pastries and the butchery sells free range local meat, home-made sausages and eggs. They also offer free delivery to your cottage.

For an easy meal, the two village pubs are The Plough Inn and slightly further away The Rising Sun. Both are superb free house pubs with excellent menus and delicious food. Both pubs cater well for families and have substantial beer gardens with play areas. Tiptoe is a really friendly village and visitors enjoy its thriving community spirit. Keep an eye out on the village website and notice boards for annual events which include: Easter Egg Hunts, Maypole Picnic, Village Fayre, Summer Fete, Dog Show, An Annual Cream Tea, Harvest Festival, Quiz Nights and Street to street Carol Singing.

Had dinner here on the Friday evening, having pre-booked a table. Menu was appealing and extensive and the quality of the food generally excellent I for both quality (although the steak selected by one of us was reported to be 'gristly' and quantity. Service was efficient on what was clearly a busy evening for them.

September 2017


Always good value food, service and atmosphere

October 2017


Sunday lunch was fantastic, now we know why people were waiting outside for it to open!

November 2017


Fantastic! Traditional New Forest pub that's always busy and always friendly and welcoming. Sunday lunches are amazing and such good value. Usually lots of vegetarian choices too. Also dog-friendly in the main part of the pub though not the restaurant, but the food is the same. Been visiting regularly on holiday for about 20 years and never fails to please!

Barton on Sea
(4 miles)

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.

A picturesque, tree-lined beach of shingle, and sand at low tide. Good facilities on the cliff top including an excellent tea room, award winning public toilets, baby change and a children’s play area in the Castle gardens. Plenty of parking, but there is no disabled access and quite a few steps to get down to the beach. Lifeguard cover from July to Sept. No dogs allowed.

Mudeford Sandbank
(7 miles)

This is one of the most scenic of New Forest beaches. Lined with some of the most picturesque and expensive beach huts in the country! There’s no parking next to the beach, as it’s a traffic-free zone, but there’s pay and display parking at Hengistbury Head from where you can catch a little train to the sandbank, and Mudeford Quay which runs a small ferry (5 mins) over to the sandbank. Can also be reached on foot and by bicycle.

Beautiful place, our favourite beach in south of England. It feels like an island, when you go over on the ferry and at times (off-season!) on sunny days it can feel like a little piece of Heaven, it's so peaceful and beautiful- bit of a sense of New England. There's a super little 'restaurant', the Beach Hut, which does great breakfasts, meals all day and some evenings. Also takeaway eg pizzas, you can eat on the beach. Very simple surroundings, with a sheltered veranda that can be uncovered in fine weather, and amazing views. Quite pricey and often very busy (and you are best to ring and check opening times and book since often weather and ferry-dependant) but the quality of the food and those stunning views make it more than worthwhile!

(10 miles)
