Short breaks in the New Forest – your home away from home

A short break in the New Forest at Chevrons Living will leave you feeling reinvigorated and rested.

Our en-suite rooms are the perfect place to rest your head after a full day of kayaking down the River Beaulieu, going full throttle at The National Motor Museum or walking through the wonderous woodland that makes the New Forest so special.

You can start and end your day with a delicious meal in our on-site restaurant and take in everything Fordingbridge has to offer as we’re situated in the heart of the town.

Fordingbridge is known as the gateway to the New Forest, and with good reason. On our doorstep are abundant opportunities to get out into nature, explore the rich history of the area and indulge in experiences that you can’t find anywhere else. Read our blog on things to do in the New Forest when you come to stay.

We can’t wait to welcome you for a short break in the New Forest. Ask about our availability today –

Retirement community in the New Forest


Every morning our restaurant whips you up a hearty breakfast so that you’re fuelled for whatever the day holds for you. Our food is fresh, home-cooked and sourced from local suppliers wherever possible.

The New Forest is renowned for its local produce – cheeses, meats, wild-foraged mushrooms, jams, pies and freshly baked bread. Staying with us is a chance so taste some of the wonderful flavours the New Forest has to offer.

We’ll also make every effort to cater to any allergies or intolerances you might have.

Take a look at our sample breakfast menu to see what you can enjoy while you’re here.

Retirement community in the New Forest


Short breaks in the New Forest can be as active or relaxing as you want – but at the end of the day it’s great to have somewhere cosy to put your feet up and relax with a drink in your hand.

Our well-stocked Elizabeth bar is perfect for chilling in the evening.

It’s a great way to unwind at the end of the day, or whenever you like. You’re never restricted to opening or closing times when something takes your fancy.

The Elizabeth bar and lounge is the perfect place to play a board game (we’ve got a great selection available), have a cup of tea or something stronger, and chat to other guests.

Enjoy our outdoor space

Our garden is a beautifully landscaped space where you can sit and take in the fresh air or watch the wildlife. Short breaks in the New Forest aren’t complete without getting outdoors. In the summer months, we host BBQs and drinks out in the garden so you can enjoy our al fresco surroundings.

If you want to head outside to read a book, catch up with the morning’s paper or simply feel the sun on your skin then it’s a great space for a moment’s peace.

We have a dedicated smoking area in our garden as smoking or vaping indoors isn’t allowed.
