A Weekend in the New Forest

Last weekend we got away to the New Forest and it was lovely! Only two hours from London, it was the perfect get away of long walks, visits to Pubs and exploring a new part of the country we have never been too. Get ready for photo overload!

A stop at the pub in Lynmouth to start the weekend away, accompanied by a pint, perfect. 
Who knew that the actual Alice in Wonderland was based off a real girl who lived in this small little village?
 We went to Lymington for a lunch of fish and chips at the Ship Inn which was right on the water and the perfect afternoon. 
After a meal of fish and chips what is there to do? Long walks in the New Forest, that's what. 
 Back at our hotel at the Woodlands Lodge Sir Oliver had a blast running through the walled garden, barking at the hens and well, pretty much being the star of the weekend as usual.
 The hotel was so pet friendly it was amazing. They even gave him a blanket and bone biscuit on arrival, doesn't get much cuter. 
The next day we drove to the coast in Key Haven where we had no idea, but there was a huge boat race going on. 
 I was obsessed with the ceiling at the pub full of matchbooks!
We then decided to make our way to the place everyone was telling us about, The Pig, and oh my, so glad we did. The Pig was full at the Inn and had no dinner reservations available, however the courtyard with brick pizza oven was WELL WORTH IT, I want to move in. 
A wall full of Hunter wellies, just in case you forgot yours!
We ventured out on almost three hour walk and ran into a lot of wild ponies along the way. 
How amazing is the Pig's walled garden! They use all of their veggies in their restaurant, I love it!
We went back to the courtyard and ordered Courgette Fritters and Beau's favorite, Crackling with Apple Sauce. Accompanied by a bottle of vino, seriously I didn't want to leave. 
I'm hoping we can make it back in the winter for a cozy night stay!
The last day there we drove to Lynmouth for coffee and one more long walk with more wild horses! I was amazed at the amount of horses and ponies just roaming free!

Highly recommended as a get away weekend! xoxo - Becca
