We also try to promote local business. For example, we provide a small welcome pack on arrival, which is stocked with local goods, some of which carry the New Forest Marque www.newforestproduce.co.uk. This includes shampoo and shower gel from New Forest Aromatics www.newforestaromatics.co.uk, and jams from Naked Jam www.naked-jam.co.uk. The framed pictures which have been used to decorate Homelands are from local photographer Paul Robertson. A comprehensive information folder kept at the property has details of local attractions, local walks, cycle routes & cycle hire and public transport. We have arranged a discount for our guests at local cycle hire shop Cyclexperience www.newforestcyclehire.co.uk to encourage cycling. The information folder also offers some tips on how guests can help look after the environment during their stay,
