About YHA New Forest

Great base for the New Forest National Park

From pony trekking to birds of prey, a stay at YHA New Forest will appeal to nature lovers of all ages. Whether you’re a field trip or a huddle of wildlife watchers, our peaceful location makes the most of the New Forest National Park. We’ve got a cosy lounge with a roaring fire, and sprawling grounds for groups to relax in. Wind down with a drink from the bar, or just chill out in front of the TV.

YHA New Forest can provide group catering for breakfast, lunch and dinner and offers a huge choice of things to do nearby. After a day in the park or exploring local attractions, school trips can relax in comfortable surroundings, with access to great walking, cycling and watersports nearby.

Groups can head to the Avon Tyrell Outdoor Activity Centre for a day of adventure and team building. Or take a modern history lesson at the National Motor Museum – the World of Top Gear is nearby too. Animal lovers will find Liberty’s Owl, Raptor and Reptile Centre and the Marwell Zoological Park within reach. Then of course there’s the Burley Manor Riding Stables (aww).
