Cycling and Horse Riding

The perfect base for horse riders and cyclists

Moortown Lodge in the New Forest is a horse rider and biker friendly accommodation, perfectly located for you to indulge in your favourite pastimes. What better ways can there be to explore, at a pace, the magnificent beauty and fascinating wildlife that can be so easily missed by car?


Our B&B is a biker friendly accommodation and offers a lock up shed for your bikes at night. Moortown Lodge has the New Forest’s 100 mile off-road and road-based cycle network within easy reach (accessible by rail or road).

Cycling is the perfect way to take in the sights and sounds of the different seasons –  from spring’s bluebells and newborn animals to summer’s new foals, autumn’s beautiful golden leaves and winter’s crisp frosty mornings.

The New Forest also offers quiet country roads and cycling routes for those wanting to improve fitness and stamina, while taking in the stunning landscape and historic villages.

Explore and enjoy the New Forest, making sure you keep to the cycle code and you’ll have an amazing time as there’s no place like the New Forest for cycling.

The official New Forest Visitor site provides a route map of all the official cycle routes in the New Forest.

Horse Riding

Horse riders have always enjoyed open access to the forest, which is well furnished with suitable tracks. Why not arrange a forest hack from one of the many stables available offering this unique way to explore the forest? Aside from giving you the opportunity to observe the stunning flora and fauna, a New Forest hack gives you the chance to spot endangered wildlife – and stay active during your break. Along your path you’ll come across some country pubs and restaurants offering a chance for some well-earned relaxation.
