Animals are also in the spotlight for father’s Day!  Dads go FREE at Longdown Activity Farm.  The farm is offering free of charge entry for Dad’s on their special day.  Come along and meet a number of cows, goats, pigs, ponies and donkeys.  You can spend the day feeding the animals, making the most of the indoor and outdoor play areas and even try out the pedal go-karts and tractors!  And after all that excitement you can retreat to the Tea Room for a well-deserved cuppa. The Farm is open from 10.00 until 17.00 daily.

The Great Burley Picnic

For the first time ever the Great Burley Picnic is taking place in Burley Park between 11.00 and 17.00.  You can enjoy the local picnic fare from the many Burley and New Forest Stalls or bring your own picnic.  During the day there will be activities for children, live music from several bands and you can browse around the craft stands.  Remember to bring your own picnic rugs and chairs!

Father’s Day Beer Festival at Rhinefield House Hotel
Sunday 15th June
If having a pint is more your style The Rhinefield House Hotel has organised a Father’s Day Beer Festival.  The event will be held on their terrace and will be attended by several local Breweries.  Enjoy local beer and ciders and maybe a spot of lunch.

And don’t forget there are plenty of pubs across the New Forest with some fantastic local produce on their menu so why not treat Dad this father’s day to a slap up meal.

However you decide to spend your father’s day….let’s hope the sun shines and a good time is had by all.
