On the banks of the Beaulieu River, in the heart of the New Forest, you will find the peaceful haven of Buckler's Hard which remains untouched by the passage of time.

Once a thriving shipbuilding village where ships for Nelson's fleet at Trafalgar were built, now Buckler's Hard is a tranquil haven, perfect for escaping the hustle and bustle of modern life.

Discover the history of the village in the Maritime Museum, take a step inside a historic shipwight's cottage, or simply amble down the high street to watch the boats sailing by on the Beaulieu River, where you can catch a river cruise from Easter to October.

Cyclists welcome at the Captain's Cabin tearooms.
