Things to do

Brockenhurst to Beaulieu

Just 15 minutes in the car will bring you from the cosy lounge of your Brockenhurst holiday rental to the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu. For petrolheads and lovers of open-top sportsters, it's hallowed ground – classic cars, sound barrier-breaking engines and purring F1 motors all await within. There's plenty for those less inspired by 4 wheels, like the Palace House and its elegant neo-Gothic architecture, or lichen-spotted Beaulieu Abbey – 800 years old and now a haunting relic of King Henry VIII's Dissolution.


Get outdoors in Brockenhurst

A stay in Brockenhurst is all about bedding down in the heart of one of England's most enchanting national parks. The New Forest spreads out to the north, south, east and west, offering a multitude of hiking routes and cycling trails for adventurous families. Get ready to whizz over rambling tracks through primeval woodlands. Get ready to discover hidden picnic spots by lonely rivers. Get ready to pitch the tent within sight of the Southampton Solent. Get ready to spot snipes, warblers and woodlarks between the trees.


Brockenhurst's for all months

You'd be hard pushed to find a time of the year when Brockenhurst didn't look downright handsome. The spring and summer draw the biggest crowds. They come from May to August to catch the beautiful wildflower blooms in the New Forest and to hike the paths under the English sun. Autumn, in September, October and November, has fewer crowds, but sees the woodlands changing colour. Winter cranks up the cosy and romance factors, with occasional snows and crisp days between December and March.

Natural features

Brockenhurst's wooded beauty

Brockenhurst holiday rentals enjoy a unique position inside an English national park. That means natural treats are everywhere. Sprawling swathes of alder woods and yew trees, redwoods and oaks, feather out from the town to the north and south. There are lowland bogs and heaths to explore, all offering a rare habitat for warblers and curlews and more. The open meadows have wildflowers and the undergrowth has mushroom blooms, while there are deer and New Forest ponies stalking the fields. It's a truly beautiful place to be.
