Macdonald Hotels in The New Forest

About Our Macdonald Hotel in The New Forest

Set aside as a royal hunting area by William the Conqueror in 1079, the New Forest's 93 000 acres are still an awe-inspiring natural attraction. It includes the largest remaining tracts of unenclosed pasture land, wild heathland and forest in South East England. Stay in our hotel near Lymington to be close to its many attractions, both natural and man-made.

Spot local inhabitants like the famous herds of New Forest ponies, deer, red squirrels, adders and, if you're lucky, rare birds like the red kite or hen harrier. Man-made beauties gleam at nearby Beaulieu, home of the National Motor Museum. Beaulieu Abbey and Palace House are not to be missed either. Paulton's Park.

Is the New Forest's theme park where the kids will love taking the raging river trip, meeting dinosaurs and riding the dragons. On the Solent, Lymington is a major yachting centre with three marinas that really come to life during the many regattas.
