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.

    "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."

    "Great location in the New Forest and 30mins away from all major places. Great walks from studio itself.Unfortunately, the sudio isn't very private and owners did gardening, watering, compositing and tidying up around us whilst we tried to eat our dinner on the patio which was a bit disconcerting.......maybe that sort of stuff could be done whilst we were out all day? Don't get me wrong, we knew it was on their grounds but every night tiding up 5 feet away from us?? We're stayed in at least 30 cottages etc over 20 years and lots on owners grounds, but most owners respected our family private time together and spoke to us in the morning whilst leaving for the day and did all their 'odd jobs' whilst we were out all day.Plus side love the area and The Royal Oak pub is fantastic and all the staff are brilliant!Also, they got days wrong and thought we were leaving on Thursday and came out to speak to us when we went out at 11am saying don't worry about leaving late, they can still clean it from within time as they have family staying here. As you can imagine a bit of a scare thinking we are being turffed out a day early. Only when i mentioned we're booked until Friday morning did they realise their error.If you're after a private, detached property this isn't the place for you. If you like talking to owners daily whilst eating your dinner then this place is an ideal base.The sofa bed is very uncomfortable and my 6 year old didn't sleep very well due to this. Shower is slow which I'm used to living in a rural myself, but fluctuating from hot to cold every 10 seconds not right."

    "We had a lovely stay at the Lions Retreat at the October half term. The house is spacious, comfortable and well-located with an enormous garden bordered by a stream. The stream was only shallow when we visited and hazardous only with very young children.The owners were very pleasant and helpful.However there were a few things about the property that could be improved to make the stay even better.The dishwasher is actually a pub-style glass washer and required constant filling and unpacking as it held only a few items at a time. There were no instructions when we got there, but Mike kindly came up to the house having printed some out.There were a few items of equipment that would have been very useful. As a family group with 4 children we ate in most evenings but it would have been great to have a potato peeler and a large tea-pot. Also a small sharp knife.We struggled to get any heat in the upstairs rooms despite turning up the thermostat . Fortunately it wasn't too cold and we managed without. Downstairs was heated by underfloor heating which was very responsive and comfortable.The quality of the fittings and furnishings was good, plenty of towels and comfortable beds. The jacuzzi was excellent and easy to use. The laundry room contained an extra fridge and freezer . the fridge was really useful to accommodate our overflow of milk etc.All in all a very pleasant stay but it could have been much beter with just a few little improvements."

    "This was one of, if not the best week we have spent away.The accomodation and surroundings were fantastic! as was the weather, and our hosts Ulli and Tony are two of the nicest people you could ever wish to meet, really friendly and helpful.Ulli makes the most wonderful flapjack and jam! all part of a lovely welcoming gift.Coming from a town, it was just fabulous waking up to the country views all around us, we even had a family of pretty deer in the paddock one night, and again early one morning walking along the track, as well as numerous species of birds feeding off the hanging feed baskets, some, like the Nuthatch ive never seen before, they are the ones that feed upside down (thanks for that information Tony). Being members of the National Trust we visited somewhere different every day, so many historical castles and houses, and Christchurch beach is gorgeous! and we recommend eating in the Royal Oak Pub, fantastic meals and friendly staff. You also get a really nice Brunch (breakfast) at Hockeys farm, within walking distance. As usual the week went so fast, Soooo relaxing! cannot wait to visit again. Amanda & Paul. X"

    "This is the most spacious compact holiday accommodation we have ever stayed in. A huge bedroom and relatively large kitchen/living area for a holiday cottage for only two people. It is beautifully decorated, as well as being clean and modern, it also contains everything you need for a week away.The village is quiet and the neighbourly cockerel wasn't too noisy in the morning. The broadband, the water pressure, the parking, the storage, the TV offering (and all those little things you don't think about until you miss them!) are excellent.We were made to feel very welcome and even had an Easter egg and delicious homemade shortbread upon arrival. Although there are no facilities in the village, we were close enough to other towns to buy whatever we needed. We could have spent 10 times longer in the area and still only do a fraction of what is on offer in this region of the UK. Next time, we would like to actually make it to the south coast."
