The village of Burley is in the centre of the New Forest in beautiful countryside with many interesting walks through the forest with an abundance of flora and fauna and an excellent area for bird watching. Several stables for horse riding are nearby and a golf course very close. Bicycles can be hired in the village.
A day's visit to the Isle of Wight ferry is fun, the boat leaves from Lymington which is about eight miles from Durmast. The beaches are within six miles drive. Christchurch Town with the Abbey and harbour is about 5 mile's drive. Bournemouth and Southampton are equidistant, about 12 miles where there are larger shops, theatres and the Winter Gardens for music in Bournemouth.
There are many lovely gardens to visit such as Mottesfont Abbey, Exbury Gardens, Hilliers, Cranborne Manor. Macpennys, Spinners and many others.
