Getting engaged is one of the most important moments of your life. You want everything to be perfect, memorable, and most importantly, for them to say yes! When you ask the question, you want it to be special, which is why the location is important. Whether you want it to be intimate and just the two of you, or you want a few loved ones to share in your moment, you need the right venue.

How we can help

The Swan Inn, which is situated just outside the idyllic town of Lyndhurst, is a charming family run pub. It encapsulates the rich history of The New Forest and offers stunning surroundings. This is a place steeped in history, with Kings and Queens having visited while staying at the Royal Manor. If you choose this venue for engagements, it can become part of your history too.

There are stunning surroundings to make the perfect backdrop to your proposal and the interior décor brings its own beauty. The décor perfectly captures the history of our pub and the many cultures that have existed here over the centuries.
