Wow! An amazing holiday in a beautiful location in a wonderful property. Jacqui and Darren's attention detail certainly make you feel at home and they are also very welcoming. The home and views are absolutely stunning, with woodpeckers and a roe deer thrown in for good measure. If you are after a base to tour the New Forest or get out walking, I cRead moreannot recommend this place enough. Not much more to say really, except we hope to return again very soon. Thank you Jacqui and Darren. Hide

We had a wonderful stay at the Lodge, Hollowland. The property is beautiful and extremely well appointed - a home away from home. The owners have thought of everything and provided all the info we needed to make the most of the area. The view over the garden and the visiting wildlife is a real treat. We didnt want to leave!

We enjoyed 4 nights at this peaceful and picturesque cottage. There were 4 adults and 1 toddler. The cottage was well equipped and met all our needs. It is laid out over 3 floors with 2 terraces. The beautiful setting meant even the rain couldnt dampen our mood as there were lovely views across the gardens and great walks straight out the front dooRead morer. Inside it was warm and cosy and the hostess, Jacqui, kindly welcomed us with a tasty cake. Hide

Location

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.
