Getting to Badger Wood

Our Pre-School/Nursery/Family Sessions and birthday parties are at this current time run from our Reading Room site in Hinton Dorset/Hampshire.

Note: using the postcode with a Sat Nav does not always take you directly to the site. Please read the instructions carefully to make finding us easier.

If you are coming along the A35 please take the junction sign posted B3055 in Hinton (there is a war memorial on this junction). The entrance to our car park is 40 metres on the left.

If you are coming along Bashley Cross Road (from New Milton), follow almost to the end of the road. The entrance to the car park is 40 metres from the A35 junction on your right hand side.

 Getting to East Close Farm

Our Holiday Clubs/Home ed and School sessions have moved their drop off location to East Close Farm. Just 1 minute up the main road from Badger Wood. Using a post code does not always take you to the farm. Please follow the instructions below.

If you are travelling from Christchurch to Lyndhurst we are 1.2 miles past the Harvester Pub (Hinton/Walkford) on the A35, we are on the right hand side of the road. If you reach the East Close Hotel or The Conquer Pub you have gone slightly to far (by 75 metres).

If you are travelling from Lyndhurst to Christchurch on the A35. we are 75 metres past the East Close Hotel on your left.
