Hotels in Barton On Sea
Lying on the edge of the stunning New Forest, Barton-on-Sea is one of this national park's best-kept secrets. Stunning cliffside walks, an abundance of natural history and a variety of leisure activities ensure that this delightful seaside resort will capture your imagination.
Barton's history stretches all the way back to the Bronze Age, with the town even being mentioned in the famous Domesday Book. More recently, in the 19th century, the town was made up of farmland, until it was auctioned off and developed.
A Mecca for golf lovers
One of Barton's principal attractions is the town's golf course, which sits atop the cliffs and has been established for well over 100 years. Providing stunning views of the Solent, the course also boasts a magnificent clubhouse for you to relax and have a drink in after a few rounds. The Barton-on-Sea Golf Club can be easily accessed by road just off the B3058.
Activities abound on the beach
If golf's not your thing, however, and you prefer something different, then Barton has you covered. The town's coastal walks, for example, are a great way to get the blood pumping, and provide an opportunity to take in the striking views of both the Isle of Wight and the famous Needles that the Solent has to offer. If you're looking for a different way to get out and about, there are no restrictions on horse riding in Barton, and cyclists are accommodated for with several outstanding cycle tracks and paths.
Take a stroll along the beach and you will be amazed at the natural history on offer. Barton's beaches are famous for their fossils, with over 600 species to be found. Budding palaeontologists will no doubt be excited at the prospect of making a discovery or two.
Food and Accommodation
After a day down on the beach looking for evidence of the area's prehistoric inhabitants, many people choose to visit the Beachcomber Café on the cliff top. Again, this establishment provides excellent views of the sea and cliffs and is worth a visit.
If you're looking to stay in a Barton-on-Sea hotel for a few days, there are a number of guest houses and B&Bs which provide a relaxing environment in which to unwind at the end of the day.
