Spend a night of comfort and tranquillity at the South Lawn Hotel, ideally located between the New Forest National Park and Hampshire coast. There's no better way to explore the surrounding area than on horseback, and with a 2 hour riding experience included, that's exactly what you'll be able to do. Surrounded by picturesque countryside, you and your guest will stay in one of the hotel's comfortable double or twin rooms. Once you're all checked in, there's plenty to see, with beaches and the wildlife-rich New Forest within walking distance. Your beginners riding experience will see you get to grips with all the basics of riding before setting off on a gentle trail through the New Forest countryside. In comfortable Western saddle, you'll enjoy incredible bucolic views and scenery, as well as a host of wildlife including ponies, cattle and fallow deer. On the morning after your stay, you can fill up with your choice of breakfast from the likes of a full English and a continental buffet, so you'll be nicely topped up for more adventures before heading home.
