Enjoy a delightful holiday in beautiful and private New Forest cottages

Located in southern England, the New Forest area boasts breath-taking natural beauty. The New Forest has the distinct honour of being one of the largest unenclosed areas of its type remaining in England and includes pasture land, heathland and, of course, forest. The area is also dotted with numerous picturesque villages on gorgeous property which are home to our New Forest cottages, available to rent to groups of all sizes. Whether you need a property that sleeps six or a cosy spot for two, these cottages serve as a fantastic home base during your holiday in the idyllic New Forest region.

The history of the New Forest area surrounding your cottage with a view

The New Forest area used to be comprised of deciduous woodland. Parts of the woodland were cleared and used for cultivation starting in the Bronze Age. However, the soil was not entirely suitable for cultivation, and the cultivated land quickly transformed into heathland, which was in turn used for horses to graze. Over the centuries more and more trees were cut down and the land repurposed. What stands today is all that is left of what was originally massive woodland. In the 20th Century a part of the New Forest known as Ashley Range was used to test the Grand Slam bomb and the Bouncing bomb during World War II. After the war, the concrete bunker was simply covered with soil. Today, visitors have an opportunity to see the remaining bomb craters as well as an observation shelter and the chalk markings that the bombers used when pinpointing where to drop their payload.

Natural beauty abounds around your cottage with a view in the New Forest

The New Forest district is home to the aptly named New Forest National Park. The possibility of establishing a national park in the New Forest first came about in 1999, but it wasn't until April 2005 that the designation became official. Now, families and friends who stay in a cottage with a view during their holiday can come breathe in the fresh air. Bird lovers who stay in New Forest cottages and property will enjoy looking for birds such as the Dartford warbler, the European honey buzzard, and perhaps even the red kite or the ring ouzel, to name just a few. Perhaps the most famous animals in the New Forest are the ponies that roam around the heath. In fact, the New Forest pony the attractions that draws the most visitors. The forest is also home to deer; you can observe them in the wild or get a little closer in one of the deer preserves. The area is also home to several reptiles and amphibians including the three species of snake that are native to Britain: the adder, the grass snake, and the smooth snake. Even if you book a cottage with a view specifically for nature watching, you can enjoy the many hiking and cycling trails that take you through the various parts of the New Forest district. Grab a map and start exploring!

Discover the villages and towns in the New Forest from the comfort of your holiday cottage

Our New Forest cottages are located in several idyllic villages, each of which has its own unique history and points of interest. Some of the more popular destinations for those looking for a holiday cottage with several bedrooms and a view include:
  • Beaulieu
  • Lyndhurst
  • Lymington
  • Burley
Motor enthusiasts should head to the Beaulieu Motor Museum, the national motor museum dedicated to all things pertaining to the history of motoring. A visit to the museum also includes the Palace House - a Gothic-styled country home with a guided tour - and the grounds and gardens. Search for a property that sleeps anywhere from 2 to 4 or more guests in this charming village. A look at the map shows that Lyndhurst is conveniently located right in the middle of the New Forest, making it an excellent starting point for those who plan to explore every aspect of this beautiful part of England. Head to the New Forest Water Park in the warmer months for some refreshing fun and exciting water sports. You can also take an historic tour of Breamore House. Fans of Roman history can explore the Rockbourne Roman villa, and horse lovers can go for a ride at Arniss Equestrian. Find a home with several bedrooms that sleeps larger groups or opt for romantic couples' accommodation. The town of Lymington is a coastal town with much to offer in terms of maritime history. The traditional street market on Saturdays is thrilling even if you don't plan on buying anything. The cobbled streets add to Lymington's charm, and simply passing the time watching the yachts and fishing boats in Lymington can be extremely relaxing.

Activities for the whole family

Many visitors who book New Forest cottages come with the entire family; for such visitors, there is a wide variety of possible activities for parents and children alike. Find a property that sleeps as many as are in your group, no matter how big or small. Have a delicious breakfast in your holiday house before grabbing a map and stepping into the role of detective at the Burley Village of Witches Mystery Trail. This self-guided mystery treasure trail gives you clues as you search through a village with a history of witches, smugglers, and - it goes without saying - dragons. In Burley you can also take the kids on a wagon ride, giving them a first-hand glimpse into how people used to get from A to B. The Eling Experience offers adults and children a chance to learn about tidal-powered milling and provides you with an opportunity to experience an air-raid shelter - complete with sound effects - and to play on a playground with a pirate ship that has space for picnics. Another popular and friendly tourist destination of those who book a cottage or property in New Forest is Bournemouth. This charming coastal town is an excellent option for anyone who wants to dip their feet in the salty water of the sea. One look at the map shows its proximity to the various parts of the New Forest area, making it easy to get to and an excellent choice for a day trip. What's more, the city of Bournemouth also offers a vibrant history and has several points of interest beyond the beach, including art galleries, museums, country parks, and manors.
