Wishing Well is a cottage wing at Burgate Farmhouse (awarded the 2018 Certificate of Excellence from Tripadvisor & now HALL OF FAME status).

Interaction with guests
I am happy to provide any help that I can as regards 'where to go', 'where to eat' etc. I'm here to help whenever I can if wanted. Equally, I'm happy to just 'blend in' & be unobtrusive if guests prefer to keep to themselves.

About the neighbourhood
Fordingbridge is a traditional riverside town situated on the edge of the New Forest, with the River Avon flowing under the town's ancient bridge. It is surrounded by a group of pretty villages such as Breamore, Woodgreen, Godshill & Rockbourne. Cranborne Chase is just a few miles away.
Getting around
A car is the best method of transport.
Bus is fairly easy as the X3 bus service has a bus stop within a 2 minute walk from Burgate Farmhouse.
There is an open top 'hop on hop off' bus service which travels around the New Forest & operates from Jul to early Sept each year.
Cycling is also a good means of travelling around. I can provide cycle route maps.
