Holiday Cottages In New Forest To Rent

Holiday Cottages in the New Forest

Given that the New Forest was named in 1079 by William the Conqueror, it can’t really claim to be that new at all. However, it is as pretty as a picture, boasting some of the most idyllic countryside that England has to offer. Full of tiny, unspoilt villages that wouldn’t look out of place on a chocolate box, and peppered with wild ponies, our cottages offer the perfect base from which to explore this dreamy part of the UK.

New Forest Cottages

While most people tend to imagine the New Forest as something out of Robin Hood, it does also sport one of the most spectacular coastlines in the country. Whether you fancy topping your tan up in the summer of taking a bracing walk in winter, there are plenty of beaches and coves to explore. The coastal walk from the harbour at Keyhaven is immensely popular, and the New Forest Tour blue route will help you uncover all those secluded bays and saltwater lagoons. Many of our

New Forest Cottages

are a short distance from the coast, giving you the opportunity to be beside the seaside at any time of year.

What is there to do on holiday in the New Forest?

Many of our

holiday cottages in the New Forest

are ideal for couples looking to get away from it all and enjoy some quiet time together. With such a beautiful backdrop, you only have to step out of your front door to soak up the ambience. However, if you’re looking for things to do, you could always start by taking a trip to the village of Lover. Technically, it’s pronounced ‘low-ver’ – but who cares? Alternatively, Piper’s Wait, near Lyndhurst, is the New Forest’s highest point and has been the scene of many a bended knee proposal. The Knightwood Oak is a 600-year-old tree, with a circumference of over seven metres; well worth a visit.

If you’ve booked one of our

holiday cottages in the New Forest

for your whole clan, you’ll need some days out with the kids in mind. Paultons Park is the home of Peppa Pig World; ideal for fans of everyone’s favourite porcine pal. For something a little less cuddly, get your children down to Liberty’s Owl, Raptor and Reptile Centre. Alternatively, you can help them burn off any excess energy with a leisurely cycle along one of the Forest’s many designated routes.

What our customers are saying about our Holiday Cottages In New Forest To Rent.

David - verified booking

"S50422 is well equipped and located. The house manager was incredibly helpful and provided a lovely personalised welcome pack. The kitchen is well equipped and the wifi and smart TV were great to have. The house in our opinion could do with some updating in terms of painting. The ceiling is very low in the kitchen, and the shower in the downstairs en-suite bathroom is quite small although works well. There are beams and sloping ceilings upstairs so tall people need to be aware of this!The conservatory is lovely and has a great wood burner – we echo another reviewer’s comments though that this would mean that the downstairs is all incredibly hot in hot weather. The property is well located in terms of being very close to the New Forest and near to the sea and lovely beaches. Nearby are a couple of small towns that have supermarkets and useful shops, and the most local pub (The Plough) serves good food. The road to the pub however is, in our opinion, not one we would walk down as it is a country lane with no lighting and little space to keep out of the road as cars pass. Easy drive to both pubs. The cottage is close to Lymington and Lyndhurst where it is very easy to get to these places.It must be stated however that, contrary to the website description, the property is neither detached nor secluded. Physically attached to the property are working stables and the house is not fully at the end of the lane as stated and the lane is used at all times of the day and into the very late evening by people tending to their horses. You can therefore hear the horses and any related activity from within the house at all hours (including overnight), and in particular this could be heard in the bedrooms. There is also another house within metres of this house also so it is not as secluded as we had hoped for.The garden is lovely although it does look out onto the lane with people driving past as mentioned above therefore it is not private. There are also other houses visible from the garden, and we could hear children / tractors / renovation noises etc. If you are early risers and don’t mind some neighbour noise and are not particularly concerned about people coming and going then this is a lovely location and house; but if, like us, you were specifically looking for a fully detached and secluded peaceful property with no near neighbours and a good level of privacy then we would not recommend this property."

"If you like technology convenience, internet and action don't book. If you like to switch off get away from it all and absorb yourselves in rural idyll this is the place for you. Nestled amongst the New Forest with wildlife in abundance this riverside property has the wow factor. We booked for a small party and dog hoping to fish, kick back and relax and it surpassed our expectations the grounds are beautifully maintained and the comfort level is high the kitchen well stocked for a sous chef and has every nicknack required. The property consists of three parts the main house a wooden framed thatched property with a luxury bathroom fluffy towels provided, ground floor bedroom good sized kitchen and comfortable lounge with an open fire.The Fishing Lodge a comfortable twin with shower ensuite facilities and the Hayloft a quirky double in the eaves of the garage.The style of furnishing is eclectic. The outside space and dining with a river view with no noise pollution was a highlight as was the many sights of the river the fine specimens of birds the otter and waiting for the cows to come graze on the fields beyond.The lack of wifi means you have no choice but to switch off and enjoy your surroundings... a big plus. The local village shop a brisk twenty minutes' walk a community project was well stocked with excellent local beef and venison, a friendly hub of activity, the village pub similarly and dog friendly a focal point with locals happy to chat about the history of the area and with a good range of local beer, ciders or soft drinks for me as a non drinker. The dog soon found his way around the area enjoying the sniffs of the forest as we enjoyed the sights of the wild ponies and the deer he rather enjoyed trying to roll in their poo! A haven for walks and twitchers and history buffs too.A good base for exploring further afield if you wish too we were happy to stay put and enjoy every moment. The only one big negative....we had to leave . Thanks to Sharron for all your fishing tips and help with our stay we look forward to our return."

"I will not describe the cottage and location as it is very accurately covered in the Hideaway description of this property. It topped our expectations in all categories. We booked the second week in June, weather was sunny and not too warm, being a party of three my better half and her friend both German and myself English (born in the New Forest) all now pensioners. I have lived since 1969 in Germany but each year I like to return to southern England for at least a week's holiday. We had the master bedroom in the house and our friend the Fisherman's Lodge giving us access to separate bathrooms.´The Fisherman's Lodge gave a magnificent view from the bed through the panorama window down the river. Over the years I have had many of this type holiday cottage in Cornwall, Devon Dorset, Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. this cottage tops them all. We have all owned horses and it was for us a pleasure to see the New Forest ponies peacefully grazing along the road side. Just sitting on the patio in front of the house watching and hearing the many different wildlife was like living as it must have been in the English countryside a couple centuries ago, fantastic. Our friend was the first time in England, she has fallen in love with the cottage, New Forest and southern Hampshire. For those who want to visit the seaside there are some very good beaches for all tastes within an easy drive. as is with larger towns, Southampton, Bournemouth, Salisbury and Winchester plus many country pubs and villages. This cottage will be on our list for our next holiday in England. I must give thanks to the owner that such a period tastefully furnished cottage with its truly fantastic location has been created and that it is available for renting Thank you, Mike Painter"

"We were seven adults, (2 in their early twenties) and one dog. The setting is breathtaking and the 6 days we were there were magical. The main cottage was full of character, very warm, comfortable and well equipped with a fabulous fireplace. The accommodation in the other buildings was just as good and there was an interesting eclectic range of furnishings throughout. Surrounded by woodland, there were plenty of lovely routes for walking, stomping and scrambling through! The view from the house and garden is utterly peaceful, only broken by the activities of the herd of 50 or so swans on the river - what an incredible bonus to be able to watch them everyday so close at hand - and geese landing in the fields opposite. If there were any downsides at all some of the party would have a liked a proper shower in the main house as well as the lovely bath, and the oars for the small boat provided seemed a bit short for a good row up or downstream, though we did wonder if that was provided mainly for crossing the river to be able to fish from the mile of river bank opposite. However these were more than compensated for by everything else about this wonderful place. There was an amazing timelessness about this place and although we made enjoyable excursions to other parts of the New Forest, the time spent at S123253 was probably the most relaxing we have ever experienced on a holiday. A must for anyone wanting to write or paint or just 'be' and for utter peace and quiet to get away from life's hurley burly, I cannot recommend this property enough."

"Cramped accommodation. Steep stairs an understatement. There was a sign warning to remind you to come down backwards. Definitely not suitable for anyone with any infirmaries or needing to get up during the night. Can only stand upright in a narrow band along the middle of the bedroom meaning only one person can dress/undress at a time. No hanging space in bedroom, only a very small amount downstairs. No natural light into bedroom. Small window looks into an enclosed carport. Hence room dim even during day and needs light to be used. If you need to get up during night the bedroom light would need to be switched on, partner woken, possibly to turn light on as only one light switch behind one of the beds in order to have a safe visibility to negotiate the stairs (more like ladder). Had to kneel on floor to access the clothes drawers.The fridge was missing one of the shelves and all the door shelving missing. Both easy chairs 'tired'.Description states property has electric central heating. It actually has an electric wall heater in the very small kitchen/lounge/dining area and an electric heated towel rail in bathroom. No heating upstairs.Location pleasant. We got used to the property over the week, but we are moderately fit. Enjoyed our stay as the property's good location allowed easy access to some pleasant enjoyable locations. Property description needs to be improved to make the property's limitations clear."
