Make a holiday cottage in Alderholt your home away from home

Nestled near the western border of The New Forest National Park, the small village of Alderholt sits in the midst of an area filled with natural beauty. As an outdoor haven, Alderholt attracts active holidaymakers from across the UK seeking respite from the city and a breath of fresh air. The village is typically English with three churches, a convenience store, surgery and pub. There’s also a pet store if beloved Fido is making up the party! With a lovely choice of accommodation in the area, as well as holiday cottages in Salisbury nearby, visitors can create their ideal holiday in Dorset or Wiltshire.

HomeAway's selection of holiday cottages in Alderholt are available from £233 per week, range from one to three bedrooms, and can sleep two to six people. Furnished with everything visitors would need to feel right at home, some of the cottages feature additional amenities like washer/dryers and internet access. Many Alderholt holiday cottages also welcome pets, making the perfect place for a family getaway.

Things to do

-Outdoor activities: The beautiful varied landscapes of The New Forest are just a short drive away from Alderholt. Dozens of well-known paths crisscross the heathlands and forest of this national park and are ideally suited for walking, cycling, or horse riding. Cycle hire, vehicle hire, and horse riding stables are widely available in The New Forest. Visitors exploring the park will no doubt run into its most famous residents, wild ponies, along the way.

-Family attractions: Holiday cottages in Alderholt offer excellent value for money, especially when taking into consideration all the great family attractions nearby. Go Ape, an outdoor adventure destination, is six miles from Alderholt in Ringwood. The park includes an exciting treetop walkway and Segway tours. A little further in Newtown, families can spot spotted deer at the Bolderwood Deer Sanctuary. Finally, parents with younger children won’t want to miss a trip to Peppa Pig World in Romsey.

-Historic attractions: Alderholt is surrounded by historic villages and towns. Lyndhurst, considered the capital of The New Forest, is half an hour's drive away from most Alderholt holiday cottages and boasts a high street full of historic half-timbered and thatched roof buildings. A bit further from Lyndhurst, the extraordinary village of Beaulieu is also a wonderful place to visit. Its main attraction is the Montagu Palace House and Beaulieu Abbey, which date back to the 13th century.

-Museums: The Salisbury and South Wiltshire Museum is located just nine miles from the centre of Alderholt and is home to an impressive collection of archaeological artefacts from the surrounding area. Popular parts of the museum include exhibits on Medieval Salisbury, Stonehenge and Prehistory. The museum is open year-round and is an excellent family destination situated well within reach of Alderholt holiday cottages.

-Food and drink: Churchill Arms is the village pub in Alderholt, and welcomes locals and visitors alike. Visitors headed to The New Forest will encounter numerous charming local pubs and restaurants in the historic villages of Lyndhurst, Brockenhurst (which also has a lovely selection of holiday cottages), and Burley. Along with traditional pub fare, tourists always enjoy the locally sourced cider and ice cream, especially in the summer months.

Weather in Alderholt

Warm summers and chilly winters characterise the weather in Alderholt. It rains steadily throughout the year, but not enough to stifle lovers of the outdoors. August is the driest and warmest month, with highs reaching into the 20s. Pleasant conditions well suited to walking and other outdoor activities last from April through October. Temperatures hit the single digits in the winter, and the chilly weather is accompanied by more rain.

The secure garden is particularly good for dogs as are the many walking opportunities nearby. The stairs are steep but perfectly manageable for the fit and able. Would not recommend for anyone with stability issues. Everyone else will love it. P.S. The T.V. is very small to fit the overall proportions of the property but not really any good for watching rugby. Had to go to the pub. Not sure this could be resolved without spoiling proportions? Louise was very helpful yet unobtrusive. Greg.

Modern and clean kitchen and bathroom. Nice size garden with playroom for the children at the end. Good location to walk in to Christchurch or a short drive to Mudeford.
