| Events in Linwood | 10 Places to Stay

Linwood is a tiny scattering of houses towards the western edge of the New Forest, four miles from Ringwood, in Hampshire. At its heart is the Red Shoot Inn, once the village store and post office and even the local petrol filling station. The hamlet remains little changed, although the Inn has been extended and now incorporates a campsite set behind it, set on 4 acres of land with direct access to the New Forest. The village has two pubs, the aforementioned Red Shoot Inn and the High Corner Inn. Nearby Ringwood is the Western Gateway to the New Forest, located at a crossing point of the River Avon. For centuries it has been the traditional market town of the New Forest with its market charter dating back to 1226. Ringwood still has a lively Wednesday morning street market and has remained an unspoilt historic town with both quaint and modern shops, restaurants, pubs and cafes. Leisure facilities include the Ringwood Health and Leisure Centre, Moores Valley Golf Club and Matchams Leisure Park, known for various forms of motor sport. Ringwood is the home of the Ringwood Brewery which produces a variety of cask ales and runs five pubs in the local area.
