Hi we (Me, husband and two children aged 4 & 7) are going on holiday in a couple of weeks to the New Forest, staying in New Milton. We want quite a relaxed time with visits to the beach, cycling etc. We plan to visit Beaulieu Museum and possibly, the Isle of Wight. Could anybody suggest any nice places to visit or cycling routes etc. Many thanks

Wightlink have a 2 for 1 on foot passenger day return tickets from Lymington (near the New Forest) to Yarmouth (Isle of Wight) or a family foot passengers ticket for £24 on special offer at the moment, worth printing off the coupons just in case you go:

Best beach is Bournemouth (including Boscombe and Southbourne) but you have to use street parking on the cliff tops and go down steps.

Best cycling with kids is Moors Valley Country Park (near Ashley Heath).

The kids might enjoy Paulton's Park (M27 junction 2).

Other attractions include Bucklers Hard (but only a for ½ day), Hurst Castle (access either via a long walk along the shingle beach or use the ferry from Keyhaven) and Brownsea Island (but beware the traffic queues in the Sandbanks area).

Paultons Park ( http://www.paultonspark.co.uk/) is great for your age chilren

Thanks for the suggestions - think we'll give Paultons park a go & I remember Lepe Beach being lovely when I went as a child.

why oh why oh why would you come down here for your holidys
seriously not the best place to come but if you feel you must then
yes pautons park is good for the kids but its not all free inside the park you still have to pay for some things i.e go karts also there are plenty of routes through the forest that you can ride or walk and some of them are nice. sandbanks beach is very nice as is bournmouth you have also got calshot which has alsorts of water activitys and ski slope and climbing walls

I know what you mean - I live on the Wirral which is currently full of holiday makers. I think we take for granted where we live and don't appreciate that others would like to visit. Anyway, really looking forward to going down to the Forest having spent many summers there with my Parents. I now want to show my children.

i was only joking i know what you mean though as we went to devon the other week and we thought it was great lots to see and do but i expect the locals all think its boring.
anyway hope you and the family enjoy your holiday
