| Events in Ashurst | 10 Places to Stay

The Hampshire village of Ashurst enjoys the best of both worlds in that it is still very much a discrete village, located on the edge of the New Forest, but it is also a very easy commute from bustling Southampton a few miles North East. Happily for the residents – and the many visitors who use the place as the starting point for a trip to the ancient hunting reserve - the settlement has retained its railway station, aptly named Ashurst (New Forest), just a couple of hundred metres outside the village. With about 2000 inhabitants Ashurst is small enough to feel rural, but big enough to merit a few shops including a post office, a cricket ground, and the pubs that contribute so much to the life of any village. Standing on the A35 road between Lyndhurst and Southampton, just a short drive from the end of the M27, and on the main line between Weymouth and Waterloo, Ashurst is an easy place to get to and from, making it popular with commuters not only to nearby urban areas, but also to London.
