Everton village is is a quiet and ideal location to explore the New Forest National Park with its picturesque villages such as Brockenhurst. The sailing town of Lymington provides wonderful walks around its sea wall, great restaurants cafes and a large variety of shops and designer boutiques.
Within walking distance, you will find Milford on Sea with its promenade, clean beaches, traditional pubs and cafes, for example only a mile away Braxton Gardens tea rooms and cafe serves morning coffee, lunches and afternoon teas. All food served is organic and locally sourced.
There are numerous opportunities for walking, cycling, picnics in the beautiful scenery of the New Forest with its natural harbours such as Keyhaven, Beaulieu and Bucklers Hard. I am happy to give personal recommendations of restaurants, cafes or places to visit.
And last but certainly not least, the friendly Everton village store is just at the end of the lane offering a wide range of groceries, fresh bread, fruit and vegetables and an excellent selection of wines, beers and spirits. The Post Office counter provides easy banking facilities.
At the other end of the lane, barely a a five minute walk is The Crown Pub serving lunch and dinner to a very high standard.
It is the most ideal to arrive by car as the bus services are limited. The nearest mainline station is Brockenhurst with direct trains to London and all other railway networks. Trains go to Southampton and Bournemouth both of which have large shopping centres, for example, West Quay in Southampton or a day out on the train from Brockenhurst to Weymouth where you will find the journey interesting and Weymouth has a wonderful beach, sea front and harbour pubs.
