New Year’s Eve – Dorchester & Poole
We begin with a visit to the charming county town of Dorchester. This historic market town lies on the banks of the River Frome and is probably best known as the birthplace of the author and poet Thomas Hardy. We continue on to Poole with its lovely quayside, stunning natural harbour, fine beaches and historic Old Town which still shows evidence of its medieval past.
New Year’s Day – The New Forest (Lyndhurst, Brockenhurst & Lymington)
We enjoy a scenic afternoon drive through the New Forest, England’s smallest National Park, famous for its tranquil ambience and free roaming ponies. We visit the Forest’s capital of Lyndhurst, the pretty village of Brockenhurst with its old world charm and the coastal town of Lymington with its cobbled streets and attractive quayside.
