Things To Do in Sway, Nr Lymington
The village of Sway is found in the New Forest and has a number of walking and cycling routes to explore. With a hairdressers for a spot of pampering, a butchers, pubs, post office and Sway train station as well as a convenience store it is a great place to use as a base to explore the New Forest with your dog.
Arriving by train is easy and keeps your carbon footprint down and the Sway and Setthorns nine-mile cycle route is great for families to explore the countryside along safe gravel cycle paths. Kids will also love the free-roaming ponies, donkeys and cattle which can be seen wandering along the roads of the New Forest.
Just four miles from Sway is Lymington, a picturesque Georgian market town. A weekly market is held every Saturday having stood the test of time – it has been held in the town since the 13th century.
Local produce, crafts, bric- a-brac and plants can be found here. Both national chain shops and local boutiques and cafés can be found on the high street which provides a pleasant walk down to the Old Town Quay, the perfect place to see commercial fishing boats and buy freshly caught fish.
With two marinas with boats and yachts aplenty lined up and an interesting maritime history, Lymington has something for all ages. You can even hop over to the Isle of Wight from a nearby ferry port.
If history is your favourite pastime visits to Highcliffe Castle, a grade 1 listed building of Romantic and Picturesque architectural style or Christchurch Priory which dates back to the 11th century should be top of the list.
Buckler’s Hard, an 18th century shipbuilding village which made ships for Nelson’s fleet is now a quiet, peaceful getaway steeped in naval history.
Watch ships sailing on the Beaulieu River, stroll down the village’s high street or visit houses of the different ranks of shipyard and management worker to get a feel for the differences in living conditions and education at the time.
The owners of Fernlea offer a personalised welcome to this tranquil, relaxing home. From the convenience and reassurance of being able to shop at local shops to being minutes from the New Forest on foot, it is ideal for a family or a couple wishing to escape the hustle and bustle of daily life.
From boat spotting in Lymington to the beaches at Milford and Keyhaven, an enjoyable break with a variety of activities accompanied by your dog is possible here.
The cottage’s smart yet comfortable living room and modern kitchen with a choice of dining areas is particularly suited for families who wish to explore during the day yet relax and chat on an evening, perhaps cooking together in the kitchen before dining in the garden.
