YHA New ForestBurley Ringwood, Hampshire, BH24 4BB

Its peaceful position is close to the thatched cottages, tea rooms and cider farms which typify the area, and the coast is just a short journey away, making this a perfect spot for a family getaway.
The New Forest is great for all kinds of activity breaks, including walking, horse riding and pony trekking with plenty of routes for cycling holidays too.
