Up to 30 SBSEers can stay on-site in the Madryn or Trevelyn Cottages. Housing for SBSEers with family or friends is available in the nearby towns of Ashurst and Lyndhurst. See "Where to Stay" for details.

WIT is an easy 15 minute walk (shown in pink highlight on map above) from the Ashurst New Forest train station if you walk through the campground that's between the pub and WIT. It's a bit longer if you stick to the road. The Ashurst New Forest train station is very quiet, you'll probably have to walk to the adjacent pub to hail a cab.

Unless you have an auto, arriving at Ashurst New Forest by train is the best way to travel. Tickets can be booked up to three months in advance and picked up from the ticket machines at the train stations. The Trainline is a powerful way to find the best deals and book your trip. You'll need to provide a UK address when you register with the Trainline. If you have no other, use WIT's.

WIT gives detailed travel advice for all modes of transportation on their web site http://www.wessex.ac.uk/where/index.html
