Our selection of places to stay in Hampshire includes several on the Isle of Wight. The PIG in the New Forest near Brockenhurst and The White Horse in Romsey are popular newcomers. 

North-East Hampshire is part of London's commuter belt, whereas the south-western corner, which includes the New Forest, feels, if not remote, mostly unspoilt. The county town is Winchester, the old Anglo Saxon capital of Wessex, with good shopping, and a cathedral that rivals Salisbury's because of its beautiful, airy interior.
