See & Do
Hop on board a ferry to Yarmouth for a day trip to the Isle of Wight, or head to Buckler’s Hard, where many of Nelson’s battle ships were built. Henry Vlll’s castle at Hurst Spit near Christchurch is also worth seeing. Lymingon ranks as one of the world’s premier yachting resorts, so it’s a place to don your deck shoes and get on the water. It’s also on the doorstep of the New Forest, with its villages and wild ponies. Your hosts at Stanwell House can also arrange yacht charters for a fun day out on the Solent, complete with skipper.
