Family fun in the New Forest area

There are many different activities to participate in and places to visit while you are in Lymington and the New Forest. During your stay you should take your time and enjoy them to the fullest extent. We are confident you’ll be rewarded with a memorable experience.

The Eling Experience is just one of the many excellent activities in the area for families. This tourist attraction lasts for half a day and is made up of the rare tidal powered Eling Mill, a pirate play area for the children and a comprehensive local heritage centre. Located at the peak of Southampton Water, under 35 minutes drive from Lymington, you can see the tidal power at work making flour in a building constructed in 1785.

Karting is another great activity for the whole family to enjoy and visitors to the area can expect a wonderful experience at Matchams Karting. The site is just outside of the National Park, under 40 minutes from Lymington. The karts here are operated on a purpose built 100m track and with speeds reaching up to 25mph, the younger driver will be able to experience vehicle handling quite early.

In the New Forest National Park itself families can enjoy all kinds of activities and adventures, from nature walks to cycling. There is plenty of choice and you can make sure everybody has a great time. You can even combine the fun with some education, learning about the wonderful ecosystems in the area and the work that goes into protecting them.

At Harvest House Bed and Breakfast we offer a choice of bedrooms for guests visiting the area. We aim to ensure that everybody has a great experience, taking care to get every single aspect of our service right, from the quality of the facilities to the locally sourced produce we use in our breakfasts.
