Set in the heart of the New Forest, Brockenhurst is a stunning country village where wild ponies, cows, donkeys, and pigs roam freely. The North and South Weirs streams join and run through the centre of the village, creating what the locals have called ‘The Splash’ when the stream flows over the road, giving this village a very serene atmosphere.

The village boasts a delightful selection of shops and numerous quintessentially British cafes and pubs. There is also a luxury spa and hotel, a fantastic golf course and highly rated restaurants, which include fine dining, a steak house, an Indian and a fish and grill.

Rhinefield Ornamental Drive, situated between Brockenhurst and the A35 is a tree and flower lined road which is very popular with tourists in the spring when the rhododendrons are in bloom, but also all year round as this is home to some of the tallest trees in the New Forest, including two giant redwoods which can be seen along the Tall Trees Trail. The drive also provides a fabulous approach to Rhinefield House, once a private country manor built in the late nineteenth century and now a spectacular hotel popular for weddings and private events.
