Blissford is a quaint forest hamlet surrounded by woodland and pasture, and Fordingbridge is a larger town just 2 miles to the west on the banks of the River Avon.
The New Forest National Park is an area of outstanding natural beauty and is a wondeful place to relax, explore and enjoy a well earned break.
Originally a royal deer hunting area created by William the Conqueror in 1079. Many of the historic rural practices remain including the pasturing of ponies, cattle, pigs and donkeys on the open Forest.

There is a wonderful 4.5 mile walk from Kingfisher Retreat, across the Forest, to the popular Royal Oak pub at Fritham. The Royal Oak is popular with locals and visitors from far and wide. Guests always enjoy this lovely New Forest walk and a drink at the historic halfway house."This is just one of the many routes that Martyn and I frequently walk or cycle across the forest, with a charming cosy pub at the end with beer barrels on stands behind the bar. The atmosphere will go home with you. Step back in time! Wonderful at all times of year. Enjoy the seasons!"
