Retaining its old-world charm, it is a favourite with tourists and offers a variety of shops, tearooms, pubs and restaurants.

Village life is centred around the high street, Brookley Road. At the western end, you will find a large ford known as ‘The Splash’, where the free roaming New Forest ponies and donkeys often congregate. On the northern edge of Brockenhurst is the popular picnic spot Balmer Lawn, a favourite spot for locals and tourists on the banks of the Lymington River in the summer months. To the west of the village is Whitefield Moor, an ideal picnic spot and games area near the tranquil Ober Water stream.
You might venture into The Snakecatcher pub, so called after Brusher Mills a local Forester who made his living selling snakes from the New Forest to London Zoo. Or for something special, The Pig offers foodie festivals and kitchen-garden dining in a laid-back country house atmosphere. Pop past the local churchyard to see the 1000-year-old Yew tree, which many believe to be the oldest tree in the forest, and then take a stroll or a slow drive down Rhinefield Ornamental Drive. Pretty all year round it is still best seen in May and June when the road is lined with rhododendron and azalea flowers.
For those that enjoy exploring on two wheels, bike hire is available from Cyclexperience right outside the railway station, and many parts of the forest that are hidden to motorists are easily accessible from the village. Brockenhurst Manor Golf club was designed by the great course architect Harry Colt, and is a 6220 yard 18-hole course, available to play all year round.
If you’re looking for something a little less strenuous like a spectator sport, then spend the day watching polo at the New Forest Polo club, or take it even easier with a relaxing afternoon at the multi-award winning SenSpa at Carey’s Manor. If you can tear yourself away, the tiny village of Beaulieu and The National Motor Museum are but a short drive away.
