This is a lovely, comfortable bungalow with a lovely garden to relax in. The owners, who live on site, couldn't be more helpful. All in all, a very relaxing week - just what we needed.

Lovely cottage, in a lovely , quiet part of the New Forest. The cottage had all the amenities you could want, secure garden for our dogs (although a smaller dog could possibly squeeze under the gates).

A very comfortable bungalow in a beautiful location, with walks straight from the door. You never know who you will meet on the quiet road outside the cottage, ponies, donkeys and cows all stopped by for a visit. A gorgeous secure garden for our dog too.

Location

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

If you’re after a holiday destination which has natural wonders and British tradition in abundance, look no further than the New Forest – a region where beautiful heathland, forest trails and stunning coastline surround quaint villages and market towns.

The National Park is found on England’s south coast, covering the south west of Hampshire but extending into Wiltshire and Dorset. It’s known for its picturesque footpaths and cycle trails, from which you can witness the spectacular sights of deer, ponies and cattle roaming free throughout the ancient woodland.

The villages of Lyndhurst, Brockenhurst and Buckler’s Hard have plenty of traditional, cosy pubs in which you can enjoy some locally-brewed cider or beer. Or, if you wanted something a little livelier, Hythe, Lymington and New Milton run fantastic weekly markets, while the lively city of Southampton is a drive away.

If you prefer coast over country, a visit to the shoreline is a must. Highlights include the Barton-on-Sea cliffs, Lymington Quay, and the Beaulieu River, where adventurous activities including canoeing await. There are plenty of other great things to do, too, with the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu, Breamore House and Museum near Fordingbridge, and Exbury Gardens all found around the region.
