Active Weekends

From undulating hills to ancient woodlands, wide open spaces to colourful flower meadows, the English countryside has the potential to draw visitors from far and wide for an Active Weekend in the great outdoors.

Take the opportunity to breathe in fresh air and detox mind, body and soul before stepping back onto the treadmill of life.

A huge range of invigorating activities are at your disposal, from walking, cycling and golf to horsA family day out mounting bikinge riding and water-based activities. 

Following a day of strenuous exercise let a pub take the strain; just sink back into a warm bath and soft comfy bed, and feel those weary muscles slowly relax, refreshed and ready to burn off a few more calories the next morning.

Several long-distance trails transverse the regions, many with a friendly pub to hand. In the Test Valley you will find the Bear & Ragged Staff at Michelmersh, convenient for the Test Way Long Distance FDrift Inn, in the New Forestootpath.

The New Forest in Hampshire is also a wonderful place for walking, as well as horse riding and cycling, boasting excellent pubs with accommodation right on the doorstep, pubs like The Drift Inn near Lyndhurst. 

Many Great Country Pubs huddle around the South Downs. The Kings Arms at Fernhurst (West Sussex) is a perfect retreat with the amazing South Downs National Park at your disposal.

Inland rivers, which are dotted with picturesque riverside pubs, provide a playground for canoeists, boating enthusiasts and fishermen.
