Holiday rentals and lettings in the New Forest

Accommodation in and around the New Forest

Searching for accommodation in the idyllic holiday destination of the New Forest National Park? You can enjoy choosing from a fantastic variety of holiday rentals on the edge of the park or right in its heart, in town centres through to country cottages tucked away in little hamlets or surrounded by heathland. The cozy village of Lyndhurst is the gateway to the New Forest and the centre for its most popular attractions. Christchurch is on the edge of the park and offers easy access to Bournemouth, with its award winning beaches and exciting nightlife.

Holiday rentals to suit all tastes

Traditional thatched cottages, log cabins and even stylish apartments boast direct access to the forest, with plenty of options for couples and large groups alike. Being a rural area, many lettings are spacious and offer a garden, peace and tranquility. You can even stay on a static boat right on the inlet to the beautiful village of Lymington, located on the southern edge of the park. For a great price-to-quality ratio, look no further than the plethora of log cabins dotted in and around the park, typically suitable for groups from 4-6.

Holidays in New Forest

The area and getting around

A hugely popular holiday area

Situated in the far south of England just 90 minutes from London and flanked by the airport cities of Bournemouth and Southampton, the New Forest is in the heart of one of the most popular holiday regions in the country, replete with quaint villages, scenic hilly views, countless visitor attractions and attractive sandy beaches to the south. The New Forest itself is of a manageable size at 550 km2 and with a few days you can explore the park’s top attractions.

Starting off in the park

Many people choose to base themselves in the village of Lyndhurst, which means ‘wooded hill growing with lime trees’. Just 9 miles from Southampton airport, and located in the epicentre of the New Forest, it is the ideal spot for exploring the park and a must-see destination in itself, with a variety of quaint tea rooms, art galleries, cafes, hotels, pubs and restaurants.

Travellers and activities

The New Forest for families

The New Forest is a paradise for families. Feed and cuddle the adorable animals and take a ride on a tractor at Longdown Activity Farm, delight at the native reptiles at the New Forest Reptile Centre, and learn all about the animals native to the park, including otters, deer, wildcats, at the New Forest Wildlife Park. Then head on to Paultons Park, which is home to Peppa Pig World. On a nice sunny day, the park offers a plethora of outdoor activities for you and your family, with family-friendly walking and biking trails, equestrian centres and the nearby sandy beaches of Bournemouth.

New Forest for sports enthusiasts

In the New Forest, two legs are definitely better than four if you want to enjoy the genuine park experience. The park boasts nearly 200 kilometres of trails where you can enjoy easy-to-follow walking routes, short strolls or long-distance hikes. The popular 13 kilometre Lyndhurst Parish Walk extends through the parish of Lyndhurst and passes by several traditional pubs, ideal for taking a rest and quenching your thirst!

In 1079 AD William the Conqueror created the park as a preserve for royal hunting and called it Nova Foresta. So the New Forest National Park is nearly 1,000 years old!
