Make a holiday rental cottage or house to rent in Hampshire your home away from home

Hampshire, in the South of England is a green country of rolling hills and picture postcard villages, steeped in history and crossed by magnificent fishing rivers. There is so much to discover and so many things to do in Hampshire, from the woodlands of the New Forest to ancient Winchester, that you could return to a self catering Hampshire accommodation year after year and never visit the same place twice.

Things to do in Hampshire

The Hampshire countryside is adorned with treasures of national importance, from the huge Portchester Castle to the humbling HMS Victory and the Mary Rose, both moored in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard. The history of Hampshire dates back all the way to the Romans, and there is an abundance of historical attractions to discover from one of the many picturesque Hampshire houses to rent. Hampshire is home to some of Britain’s best military museums, including the Royal Navy Submarine Museum, Museum of Army Chaplaincy, Museum of Army Flying and the Army Medical Services Museum, all of which are well worth investigation from a self catering Hampshire house.

The great outdoors provide a vast range of things to do in Hampshire. Horse riding, cycling and walking holidays absolutely thrive from the more rural Hampshire houses to rent, especially those near the New Forest, South Downs or the Three Downs. There are almost endless marked footpaths, bridleways and cycle paths to try, information on which are readily available from the Hampshire tourism offices. There are also over 80 public Hampshire golf courses to choose from, meaning that you will always be able to play golf from Hampshire holiday rentals.

Fishing holidays in Hampshire are excellent. Some of England’s best trout rivers flow through Hampshire, including the beautiful meandering River Avon. The Basingstoke canal is a haven for anglers, while sea fishing thrives from Hampshire’s beaches. The Solent is a magnificent place to try a range of water sports too. Sailing, windsurfing and kayaking are particularly popular things to do in Hampshire. Hampshire houses to rent are also the perfect spot for spa holidays. Hampshire has some wonderfully luxurious spas, offering pampering of the highest quality.

Places to visit on holiday in Hampshire

Winchester is a beautiful cathedral city on the edge of the South Downs. There are some magnificent shopping streets, but it is the legend of King Arthur that draws so many visitors to houses to rent in Hampshire’s main city. The 700 year old Great Hall is a huge attraction, known for housing the mythical Round Table.

The New Forest is a wonderful place to visit. The New Forest is a huge asset for Hampshire tourism, known as being the best place in the whole of England for family cycling holidays. Littered with delightfully traditional villages and large stately homes, the New Forest is one of the last places in Britain where wild ponies, deer and cattle still roam. The ancient heaths and woodlands are a perfectly tranquil and picturesque destination for walking, cycling and horse riding holidays.

Dorset and Oxfordshire are also well worth exploring from a holiday cottage in Hampshire.

Travel to Hampshire

Located in the centre of the south coast, Hampshire houses to rent are just an hour from London, making the whole area extremely easy to reach. There are plenty of road, rail and ferry services coming into Hampshire. Southampton Airport (SOU) means that golf, spa and fishing holidays in Hampshire can be taken with ease from across the UK and Europe. It is also worth mentioning that Southampton is the best place from which to explore the Isle of Wight

We will definitely be back!
