A short drive to Bucklers Hard from Lymington. First visit to New Forest and so much to do. Blessed with unseasonal warm weather we choose to visit this historical dockyard on the banks of the river Beaulieu.
Bucklers Hard is a great place to while away a few hours. The maritime museum on site was very informative - almost too much to take in and absorb with some really amazing crafted models on display. True some of the properties are residential and only a couple are open as exhibits but that was enough. The pub was a pleasant surprise and although we didn't eat the food looked good and trade was brisk.
Three hours was enough for us to relax, spend some time in the museum and enjoy a drink at both the cafe and the lovely tea room. With more time on our hands we would have taken the path to Beaulieu and back. Not sure this is a full day's entertainment unless you walk and pay extra for a river cruise, but I was satisfied with the value for money for the amount of time spent there.
