Our hostel is a converted family home located on a secluded unmade lane about half a mile outside Burley village in the heart of the New Forest. The hostel has a large garden and the site is a peaceful and safe place for all, whether individuals, families or small groups. Burley village, a short walk away, has a number of gift shops along with several cafés and pubs.

The hostel has a lounge, two fully equipped self-catering kitchens (one inside and one outside), two dining areas (one inside and one outside), a cycle store and a drying room. We serve a buffet-style cooked/continental breakfast each morning, and offer packed lunches which can be booked on arrival. Home-cooked evening meals are served from 5.30pm to 8.30pm.

Facilities include a camping block with a shower and toilet. There are two small self-catering kitchens (one inside and one in the campers' block) equipped with crockery, cutlery, pots and pans. Fridges, kettles, toaster, cloths, tea towels and washing-up liquid are also provided. Barbecues are permitted, if raised off the ground.
