Burley depicts everything you would expect from a traditional New Forest village. It nestles in the lee of the hill, and is surrounded by an area of outstanding beauty. A dramatic contrast of colourful heathlands, mighty oaks, beeches and lofty pines. Ponies, donkeys and cattle roam freely around this lovely village, following ancient forest tracks used for centuries by Commoners and their livestock. Ideally situated, just 20 minutes from Bournemouth International Airport.

The hotel is a short drive from such historic places as Rufus Stone, Beaulieu Abbey (and motor museum) and Bucklers Hard. Not only was Burley on the main smuggling route from the port to the south, but also has a history connection with witches (as the local shops demonstrate) indeed it was as recent as 1950 that Sybil Leek, a self-confessed white witch lived in the village.
