When it is time to take a weekend break away from the bustle of busy life perhaps you ought to escape to the country for a change of pace, scenery, and weekend activity. With complimentary tickets to either the renowned National Motor Museum in Beaulieu or the celebrated gardens of Exbury, the stage is set for an idyllic weekend in the New Forest National Park. Leave nothing to chance, book Dinner, Bed & Breakfast and your relaxing weekend away is set.
With more than 250 vehicles on show, Beaulieu's National Motor Museum tells a story of motoring history, from pioneers to motoring legends; wander around exhibits like the 'World of Top Gear' with cars from the TV programme's most memorable adventures and 'Grand Prix Greats', celebrating the history of F1.
The fascinating exhibits can be appreciated by all, but if motoring is not quite your idea of a perfect short break attraction, then your ticket also includes entry to the historic and beautiful 'Palace House' and medieval Beaulieu Abbey, as well as the Beaulieu grounds and gardens.
Meticulously cared for by the Beaulieu team, the gardens invite you to roam numerous trails; stroll from the Mill Pond and Wilderness Garden to the restored Victorian Flower and Kitchen Garden which still supply the house with seasonal flowers, fruits, and vegetables.
Or perhaps your idea of a perfect weekend Escape to the Country Break is time wandering the beautiful grounds, meadows, and woodland of Exbury Gardens…
Created in the 1920s by Lionel de Rothschild, Exbury Gardens are the stunning result of his inspiration, perfectly reflecting the 'changing moods of nature', as once described by Head Gardener, Thomas Clark. The distinguished garden offers 200 acres of serene woodland and gardens bursting with life and horticultural variety.
In spring admire the daffodils, bluebells and primroses that attract an abundance of butterflies and bumble bees, whilst summer’s herbaceous borders entice the damselflies and dragonflies to the garden’s ponds. Explore every trail, take in every garden, and then sit down for coffee and cake, or a longer lunch and a glass of wine in the café.
The key to this relaxing Escape to the Country break is that there’s something and nothing to do all at the same time. Spend all day wandering Exbury or enjoying the motoring museum then make your way back to our New Forest hotel to simply rest and relax. You may visit nearby Careys Manor Hotel to make the most of their leisure facilities or spa, or perhaps you will feel like a drink in our hotel lounge and a village stroll before you get ready for your dinner at The Terrace or Monty’s Inn.
A true escape is one that allows you to break free from the usual routine, and discover and experience different sights, flavours, places, whilst also inviting in those unique moments that busy everyday life rarely affords us, the chance to truly unwind and relax.
We hope you can find all of this with us on your next escape to the country.
