Local shops in Sway
Wildwood B&B is in the friendly village of Sway, which is often described as a hidden gem in the heart of the New Forest
As well as being walking distance to the open forest, a haven for walkers & cyclists and those wishing to explore, it is also only a short drive to the coast. Milford on sea and Barton on sea are just 15 minutes drive away and further afield is the beautiful Dorset coastline.
Wildwood is located in the centre of the village where there is also a local Central convenience store; the renowned Sway Butchers; the popular Sway Deli & Coffee Shop; HairSway hairdressers; a Pharmacy and Doctor’s surgery. Immediately opposite Wildwood is the newly opened Budgens of Sway, which sells a wide range of groceries, fresh bread, newspapers, wine and a selection of local produce.
Our village hall is home to Sway Cinema, which shows films 2 or 3 times a month.
The Hare & Hounds pub is within walking distance and is very popular, so it’s a good idea to book in advance. If you prefer more formal fine dining, the Manor at Sway is just a couple of minutes walk away and offers a delicious choice of beautifully presented meals. View our Dining out page for more restaurant choices.
Directly opposite Wildwood is SPUDWorks. SPUD is ‘an arts and education charity that creates opportunities for artists to engage with the public, architecture, urban design and the environment’. SPUDWorks in Sway is a creative hub, with an art gallery, artist studios, art workshops and much more. Click the link below to find out more…
Also based at SPUDWorks is Janet Kirk Floral Designs, a lovely shop selling a range of gifts, greetings cards and the most beautiful fresh flowers.
