Stay at The Huntsman, Brockenhurst

Our charming pub is the perfect countryside pit-stop in the heart of the picturesque New Forest. Our 13 individually designed bedrooms ooze character and charm, with a modern twist and pretty little touches.

4 of our super-cosy bedrooms sit just above the pub, while the rest of our rooms are nestled just next door in the stables. You’re in for a good nights sleep no matter where you bed down. And don’t be surprised if you spot a pony trotting past your window at the crack of dawn (or any time, in fact), they love a wild wonder.

After a day of exploring the New Forest’s must-sees, you can retreat to the pub for a aperitif, a delicious meal and a refreshingly good nights sleep (which is ever-so conveniently just a few steps away).

Frequently Asked Questions

Staying Over?

How long should you stay in Brockenhurst?

We love where we live, and we just know you will fall in love with the place too. We think a stay of two nights is pretty perfect. A little less? You’ll have a great time (we promise), but there’s just so much to see and do in the New Forest that you’ll wish you had an extra night with us. Staying for longer? We’ll give you all the hints and tips to make sure Brockenhurst and the New Forest is on your places to re-visit list, time and time again.

What are the best things to do in Brockenhurst?

There’s so much to do. There’s the New Forest must-sees, like Beaulieu Motor Museum, the quaint waterside town of Lymington, or for animal lovers, Manor Farm Country Park. And then there are those simple must-dos like wandering the independent shops of Lyndhurst, a cream tea at The Buttery in Brockenhurst, and of course, simply exploring the New Forest and pony-spotting. And we love to share personal recommendations, so feel free to ask us when you’re here. We’re a super friendly bunch.

What time is check-in and check-out?

Check-in is from 3pm. If you arrive early and your room isn’t quite ready, there’s plenty of space in our charming pub (she’s a real beauty) to relax, have a bite to eat or a little tipple. Arriving early and want to head out? No problem, we’ll hold on to your bags until you’re back. Check-out is by 11am.
