Access to Brockenhurst is easy via the mainline railway or M27 and once here you will find yourself in a tranquil part of the countryside best explored on foot using one of the many signposted walks, on bike (bring your own or hire from the village bike shop) or driving around leisurely to one of the many local attractions, riding stables offer riding for all abilities.
The Watersplash Hotel is located at Brockenhurst in the center of the New Forest National Park. Please see the map below:

Local airports Southampton and Bournemouth receive flights from many International and British destinations. If you are arriving at either of these local airports then collection can be arranged, please contact the Watersplash Hotel.
By road, London is now only 90 minutes away.
If you are coming from London or the East take the M3 (or the M27 East) then join the M27 WEST at Fastleigh (just outside Southampton) exiting at Junction 1, the New Forest exit. Then take the A337 southbound through Lyndhurst to Brockenhurst. In peak holiday periods it is usually preferable to exit at Junction 2 and head towards Fawley and Beaulieu then take the A35 towards Lyndhurst (you have to head back towards Southampton first, then go right round the first roundabout and back the way you came!). This brings you into Lyndhurst at a junction which is less likely to have long queues, although it is perhaps a mile or two further than exiting at Junction 1.
Coming from the West, take the A31 through Ringwood and then take the Burley turn off which goes through the Forest to Brockenhurst.
