This cottage is exceptional. Just after Covid 19 local shops were just re-opening . The walk to the beach to the dog area was longer than we thought,but drive 2 minutes to Steamer Point and you are on the beach or in the nature reserve. Drive to Hengisbury Head the other side of Christchurch for spectacular walks to the headland. Visit ChristchurchRead more Priory. Eat out at the lovely Jetty Restaurant but book ahead and save up ! Well worth it. The ferry to Hengisbury is fun but a busy destination. Hide

This is our second visit because we loved it so much the 1st time. Spotless, comfortable, cosy and stylish. Well thought out lovely garden - perfect for dogs. The location is fantastic for car free wandering to the beach and cafes plus Highcliffe castle is a short walk through the nature reserve or along the beach. Just perfect.

What a lovely bungalow to stay in! The dcor is beautiful and everything we needed was there (apart from a hair dryer, but that was ok). Only a 5 minute walk to the beach, and also to a convenience store.

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.
