We had a fabulous stay at The Old Chapel. It was immaculate, comfortable and in a wonderful setting. Jenny was great. She made us feel welcome - including our pup who took a real shine to her. We would have stayed longer had we been able, but we are already looking forward to our next visit.

A beautifully finished property inside and out! A really spacious living area with an added bonus of a second separate WC. This certainly comes in handy especially when youve tried the shower its blooming marvellous!! But if you need to soak your tootsies after a long walk the deep bath is more than adequate. All the appliances are new and modern. Read moreWalks into the forest within two minutes and a choice of cycle routes as well. The owner is warm,friendly and very accommodating. Thank you Mrs H.

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.
