The Horse and Groom
Nearby...in the New Forest
We have a beautiful garden in the middle of the village of Woodgreen with a childrens playarea. An ideal place to enjoy lunch, dinner or a just drink - before, during or after exploring the local attractions.
There are lots of lovely walks from the car park - along the River Avon or "up" into the New Forest, with Castle Hill and Godshill just a few minutes walk away.
Links to some local attractions:
There are some good other local walks listed here.
The River Avon
It is sometimes known as the Salisbury Avon or the Hampshire Avon in order to distinguish it from the various other River Avons in England.
The Avon Valley is a very special place; it has a greater range of habitats and a wider variety of flora and fauna than any other chalk river in Britain.
Wetland wild flowers thrive, such as water avens, meadowsweet and tubular water-dropwort abound. In the more acidic areas look for tormentil, Devil's-bit scabious or meadow thistle. Nearly seventy species of aquatic plant and twenty-four species of fish have been recorded, including barbel and salmon. The Avon is thought to contain more species of fish than any other river in Britain.
The valley is of national importance for birds, particularly over-wintering wildfowl such as white-fronted geese and Bewick swans, lapwing, golden plover and black-tailed godwits. In spring the valley supports huge numbers of breeding lapwing, redshank and snipe and in the summer the reedbeds and scrub are alive with reed buntings, blackcaps, sedge warblers, reed warblers and the rare Cetti's warbler. Special care should be taken to avoid disturbing sensitive species, especially wildfowl and ground-nesting birds such as lapwing, redshank and snipe. Walkers with dogs are particularly requested to keep them under close control during the nesting season (April to July), or when wildfowl are present.
