New Forest Cottage Holidays
Wild ponies and quaint tea rooms
Famous for its wild ponies, but home to so much more; the New Forest is one of the newest National Parks in England. From outdoor activities to cosy tearooms and top attractions, there is lots to love in the New Forest.
A haven for walking and cycling, this area welcomes millions of visitors every year. Choose from a range of traffic-free trails and see what wildlife you can spot while you’re exploring. There are plenty of other activities to try too, such as horse riding or even paddle boarding. Many people might not know, but the New Forest has a beautiful stretch of coastline with beaches and water sports opportunities. You can also choose from much-loved attractions, including Paultons Park or Exbury Gardens. If you’re looking for a more peaceful break, there are also dozens of cosy tea rooms and pubs to relax in.
Despite what its name suggests only half of the New Forest is woodland. It also has it’s own gorgeous beach at Lepe Country Park.
Whatever the season, the New Forest is a wonderful area to explore. It is a beautiful place for walking, cycling, or simply watching the world go by from the comfort of a tea room; and there are plenty to choose from.
From its towering trees, to the wild ponies the New Forest has lots to offer. Don’t venture too far without your camera, so you can capture the breathtaking views. The sunsets are particularly impressive here too.
