About Boldre

This is a beautiful village situated a short distance from the edge of the New Forest National Park and the shoreline of Lymington, in the Solent. The village is quintessentially English in character, marked out by its rich array of magnificent old trees, traditional forest properties and the ancient multi-arched bridge spanning the river.

Visitors will find a couple of splendid inns in the village as well as the historic parish church which is dedicated to St. John. This is surrounded by a fine lawned churchyard covered with graves, tombs and monuments.

There are beautiful views and lovely sunsets to be enjoyed, leafy lanes for romantic strolls, tracks for horse riding, and some glorious spots to enjoy eating "al fresco" style.

Spinners Garden offers a joyful experience for everyone. The garden occupies a wonderful tranquil setting on a slope overlooking the river valley between Boldre and Lymington. Visitors to the garden enjoy lovely walks amongst a variety of woodland interspersed with Rhododendrons, Magnolias, Camellias, Hydrangeas, Japanese Maple and rare shrubs. There is a mixture of wet areas featuring moisture loving flowers and plants and carefully thought out foliage adds interest and year round colour. As well as the garden, at Spinners there is an acclaimed nursery where visitors can choose from an interesting selection of plants, shrubs, trees and flowers. The garden was initially laid out by the owners of the property during the period between 1961 and 1981.

Boldre offers the visitor the very best of two world's - the glorious countryside of the richly wooded New Forest National Park and the beauty of the Solent with its terrific views towards the Isle of Wight.
