Alison Arnold Brown would like to welcome you to The Far Side, a pretty semi-detached Forest cottage with delightful views over farmland towards the open New Forest, which is only a couple of minutes walk along a footpath through the fields. It is only just over 2 miles from the Georgian sailing town of Lymington, and slightly less than two from the New Forest village of Brockenhurst, both of which have plenty of pubs and restaurants, and of course lots of shops and other places of interest. Brockenhurst is on the main line from London Waterloo to Bournemouth/Weymouth, and is only 1hr 20 mins from Waterloo. There are several excellent riding establishments close by where you can arrange a variety of lessons, or simply lovely hacks out in the forest. You can also hire bicycles in Brockenhurst from a very professional shop providing a comprehensive service, and we have cover if you bring your own bikes or keep hired ones overnight.
The New Forest, which extends to over 90,000 acres, provides wonderful countryside for cycling, driving, riding, walking and bird watching, or even taking a leisurely horse-drawn wagon ride from Burley. There are many places of interest to visit, such as Lord Montagu's Palace and Motor Museum at Beaulieu, the ancient ship building village and museum at Bucklers Hard, the Isle of Wight (only 20 mins ferry from Lymington), and several lovely beaches for swimming and sunbathing, or just watching the boats go by in the Solent. Whatever your interests you will find plenty in the area to enjoy.

- Opposite The Hobler Inn (100 yards down our drive) and only ¾ mile from The Filly Inn or The Red Lion, all friendly old Forest pubs serving good food.
At any time of the year The Forest has a special beauty of its own - there is the lush green of spring with enchanting foals, (and if are lucky a glimpse of fawns playing in the dawn or dusk); summer with the seaside, and lovely walks in the forest or along the riverbank or coastal walk; autumn with its stunning colours as the leaves turn, or winter when you can benefit from the bracing fresh air and then enjoy dinner and a drink by a roaring log fire at The Hobler Inn or one of the many chracterful old pubs nearby.
Take the M27 West turning off the M3 if coming from the north, or the M27 from east or west, and turn of the M27 at Junction 1, signposted Cadnam and Lyndhurst, on the A337. Follow signs to Lymington along the A337 through Lyndhurst and Brockenhurst. Go over the level crossing at Brockenhurst and we are just under 2 miles further on, on the right, about 300 yards past a car wash business (and a speed camera!) and directly opposite The Hobler Inn. Drive up the drive, through the left side barn at the end, and up to our front door - easy!
