Perfectly situated in the corner of the main car park, this quirky hire shop is a diamond of a find. Billy is a true gent and doesn’t have the usual “get them in, get them out” manner of some hire shops. He takes time to...More

We hired 8 bikes, £10 each including bike, helmet, maps, information on where to go, locks, basket and puncture repair kit. Great value for money, much cheaper than nearby competitors. The bikes themselves were very good and worked well. Billy was very friendly and knowledgeable...More

It was a bit late in the day (12pm) so chances are your most likely out of luck renting a bike in the New Forrest. But we chanced our luck and Billy was able to accommodate us with his last 2 bikes. What a guy,...More

£10 for bike hire, ran over a few safety things, supplied us with a puncture kit and pump. Offered helmets and lent us a rucksack! Bikes weren’t anything special but got us around the New Forest no problems. Also provided us with a little map...More
