Beaulieu is a small village located on the south-eastern edge of the New Forest national park in Hampshire, and home to both Palace House and the British National Motor Museum.

Known for its untouched beauty and history, this is an excellent choice for a peaceful Rib Charter up the Beaulieu River to the historic house hotel, the Master Builders, which overlooks the Beaulieu River at Buckler’s Hard.

Beaulieu River

The Beaulieu River stretches 12 miles, formerly known as the River Exe, and is a small river flowing south through the New Forest. The waterway has been owned by Lord Montagu of Beaulieu since it was founded in 1724. The river runs to the small, picturesque village of Beaulieu, passes through the village of Buckler’s Hard before entering the sea through The Solent.

Buckler's Hard

The picturesque 18th century village of Buckler’s Hard was once part of a significant shipbuilding centre, building merchant and naval ships including warships for Nelson’s army. Buckler’s Hard is situated within the Beaulieu estate and surrounded by oak woodland, excellent for walks and wildlife.

Buckler’s Hard is rich in history, with a Maritime Museum to visit.
