Bramshaw Golf Club and The Bell Inn, set in the heart of the New Forest, offer a unique golf break experience. This resort stands out with its two distinct golf courses alongside a quintessentially British inn, providing a charming alternative to the more common chain-based or corporate golf resorts.
The Bell Inn features 26 well-appointed bedrooms, blending comfort and design with luxurious cotton sheets and en-suite bathrooms. It’s an ideal retreat after a day on the course or exploring the New Forest National Park. The inn’s on-site restaurant serves a variety of delicious dishes prepared with fresh local ingredients, and the bar offers a selection of local ales.
Bramshaw’s golfing experience is marked by its contrasting courses. The Manor Course, a parkland design opened in 1971, winds through a 200-year-old hardwood plantation, offering a challenging layout amidst stunning scenery. It’s recognized as one of the top parkland courses in the region. The Forest Course, the oldest in Hampshire, dates back to 1865. This heathland course features humps, hollows, and streams, creating a beautiful and challenging environment where deer and ponies roam freely. Its natural beauty and old-fashioned golfing challenge make it a favorite among many golfers.
Additionally, the resort manages the Paultons Golf Centre, located 6 miles away. This championship course, measuring 6,238 yards off the back tees, combines open fairways with woodland scenery, providing a fun and rewarding challenge for all golfing levels.
For guests looking to explore beyond Bramshaw, the resort is conveniently situated within easy driving distance of other highly-rated golf courses, including Stoneham, Brokenhurst, Remedy Oak, and Ferndown. The Inn provides a fantastic tour base for those who want to retire to a quite moorland setting rather than the hustle and bustle of the nearby cities and towns.
