Visit Milford on Sea

Bordered on one side by the New Forest and the other side by Christchurch Harbour, Milford on Sea is one of the last remaining seaside villages in Hampshire. Perched on the cliff-tops with stunning sea views, Milford on Sea is a natural beauty spot enjoyed by many and at all times of year.


Despite being a small village, Milford on Sea has a surprisingly wide range of fantastic shops, restaurants and pubs and things to do in all weather. There are loads of great places to stay, including hotels and B&B's, camping and caravan sites, self catered cottages and holiday parks.


Both visitors and residents alike love to wander through the village, down to the seaside and walk along the cliff-top path, down Hurst Spit to Hurst Castle or along towards Barton on Sea, followed by a coffee or something to eat in one of the many cosy cafes and pubs.
