New Forest Cottages on a Farm for rural breaks


There are lots of New Forest cottages that are based on working farms, where cattle, sheep, pigs and chickens roam the grounds and you can get an insight into the daily lives of local farmers. Waking up to the natural alarm clock of a cockerel ‘cocka-doodle-doo-ing’ is a great way to start the day and is something that you won’t usually experience unless you are used to working and living on a farmyard! The unique smells and sounds of a farm are a great addition to a New Forest cottage holiday and definitely something to consider if booking a trip.

New Forest holidays involve plenty of interaction with nature and wildlife, and you will be surrounded by sprawling fields, sweeping forests and beautiful lakes and ponds. There is so much to see and do on a trip to this lovely part of England, and having a cottage that is based on a farm that you can readily explore is an exciting addition, especially if you have children with you. The kids will love to interact with the farmyard animals that they have heard about in nursery rhymes and songs, and taking them to pet the piglets and live amongst this environment throughout the duration of the holiday will be something that will stay with them when they grow up. You may even get help out with the owners of the farm if you wish, at certain accommodations!
