The house and communal grounds provided a comfortable and relaxing venue for our multi- generational break . The deer and squirrels in particular were very popular with the children. A lovely setting in such close proximity to the high street and local attractions was a plus.

Holmfield House is very well situated close to the centre of Lyndhurst, with a brilliant choice of tea shops, pubs and stores. We dined well as a family with a coeliac and a vegetarian. The house itself is a self-contained part of a once grand house, so there was a little noise from the builders next door, during the day (but not early or late).

The heating kept going off every couple of hours. The temperature would not reach what was being set on thermostat. Two bedrooms are so small that even a child cannot standout sleep in it. Its basically two bedroom cottage. Definitely not worth the money.

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.
