Logistics & Lodging in New Forest

Frens and I are doing a overnight trip to the New Forest National Park middle of this May. We are taking the train from London. The plan is to alight at Brokenhurst and do some cycling, stay the night and the next day, proceed to Milton by the Sea or somewhere close by. Take a tour around the village and return back to London by train again.

1. Can anyone suggest a nice cozy B&B easily accessible by transport or foot? Budget about 120pounds.

2. Is it true there are some cycling shops near the train station where we can leave our overnight bags (or lockers) and return to collect later?

3. Where would be a good place to visit the next day? With nice village character and nice little shops.

Other suggestions welcome. Thank you all in advance for your help.

If it helps, I quite like Boldre. Very nice walk, and a fantastic pub-don't miss the desserts.

I am not too sure what your plans are.

Are you planning to bring your own bikes or to rent them when you reach Brockenhurst.

There are certainly two cycle hire shops near Brockenhurst station

http://www.countrylanes.co.uk/ and http://www.cyclex.co.uk/

I don't know whether either offers a left luggage service - you would need to call to check.

But where are you planning to stay the night - if you are staying in Brockenhurst then you would probably be best leaving bags at your lodgings even if you don't fully check in when you first arrive.

If you stay outside Brockenhurst and have left bags with the cycle shop you still have to return to the cycle shop and then transport them (and bicycles?) to your lodging so staying in Brockenhurst might be easiest..

I cant recommend specific B&Bs (too close to home to need)
