We're making changes at YHA New Forest! We're adding three new camping pods, four bell tents, brand new toilets and showers for camping guests, self-catering kitchen, guest laundry and a new bike shed. As well as this, we're relocating the hostel reception to a more central location. In total we're investing £250,000. Please bear with us as these works will be ongoing until the end of May and may cause a little disruption.
Ancient folklore and fairies, white witches and wildlife, this part of the New Forest National Park is peerless in its old world charm. YHA New Forest, formerly YHA Burley, is in a peaceful setting close to activities and the seaside, great for cheap family holidays and weekend breaks. Don't miss the many beer and cider festivals throughout the year - you might even catch the odd pagan ritual.
The New Forest is nearby, great for all kinds of activity breaks, including walking, horse riding and pony trekking with plenty of routes for cycling holidays. Or if you fancy water sports, take a canoe out onto the nearby Beaulieu River. A ten-minute walk from us brings you to the thatched cottages, tea rooms and cider farm of Burley. As you stroll around, passing the New Forest Ponies and cattle that freely roam, you’ll notice that magic is a recurrent theme in the local gift shops. That's because of Sybil Leek, a white witch who lived here in the 1950s with her pet jackdaw Mr Hotfoot Jackson!

Cott Lane, Burley Ringwood, Hampshire, BH24 4BB
Follow Lyndhurst Road, go past Burley School on the left and past the golf course for 1/2 mile to the crossroads. Follow the sign post to White Buck Inn and turn left into Cott Lane. Follow signs for the hostel.
Please note: The section of Cott Lane from the golf course to the hostel is not suitable for vehicles. Please access the lane via the White Buck Inn where you will be able to travel to the hostel via a resurfaced road.
Public Transport: It’s entirely possible to explore the wider locale without the use of a car. In high season the open-top New Forest Tour bus route links the National Park’s major towns, villages and attractions. Alternatively, escape to the coast; Christchurch is a 45-minute bus journey away and the Blue Flag beach at Southbourne, a favourite amongst locals, is a little way beyond.
