Today Beaulieu is familiar worldwide for the National Motor Museum, but the village attracts visitors, too. It has a quaint High Street of smart independents in pretty brick and timber-framed period properties, including art gallery, chocolate studio, floral designer, plus gift shops, tea room, village stores, garden centre, community garden and the village school (rated ‘good’ by Ofsted).
Beaulieu is also home to Beaulieu Garage (specialising in classic and vintage cars) and Terrace Restaurant at the Montagu Arms, the only restaurant in the New Forest to hold a Michelin Star. Along the road towards picturesque Hatchet Pond is Beaulieu Organic Farm Shop.
As for property, there are some good-sized period country houses, while Dock Lane, which runs alongside the river, is considered one of the most prestigious addresses in the Forest with a selection of stunning architect-designed modern builds.
