Travel Blogs from Brockenhurst
Today we set off in the pouring rain to go to Brockenhurst to meet up with our 8 friends from the Ventura Maiden cruise.
We are due to meet up at Mottisfont a very pleasant National Trust property just outside Salisbury. It is a lovely mellow stone house with beautiful rose gardens. When we arrive it is so busy we are directed to the …
Just four weeks to go and I just want to be settled on board with the real world, and Christmas , left behind. I still need to order money and am checking the exchange rates daily its still going up so hang on. If it starts to go down then I buy before it looses any more.

... was something going on above the hotel. A sprint out the way and a look up revealed two guys hanging off the roof on the guttering breaking off ice, big chunks of which were crashing down!

Followed by a lunch with a last vodka (umm..nice) and back to the hotel to get ...
Early start - bitterly cold! Duvet coat sheepskin boots and gloves. It was just a short drive from the campsite to the Hawk Conservancy.

TravelPod Member ReviewsThe Cloud Hotel Brockenhurst
We stayed here with a group of friends and the welcome we received and the attention to detail from the lovely owner and her staff was the best we have ever had as a group. Everyone knew who we were, who was stopping when and how many were in for dinner etc.
The hotel is spotless and the food excellent and plentiful. We had a smaller room on the top floor lovely views with a very small shower room but adequate for the purpose. Others in our group had larger first floor rooms with a bath.
The other residents were elderly but do not let the fact that these folk know a good thing and return year after year put you off!
