Self-catering Holidays in the New Forest


It is so good to get away for a weekend or a few days to the New Forest. Find some good quality self-catering accommodation in a cottage or lodge and make yourself at home. Once you have settled in, the heaths and woodlands of the New Forest await your pleasure.

There are numerous riding stables around the New Forest where you could book a ride or lesson. The area is an outdoor lover's playground.

Take the children, hire or bring bicycles and cycle from village to village. There are traffic free trails as well as the normal roads (which can become fairly busy in school holidays). In all, there are over 200 km of cycle paths which partly explains why cyclists holiday here.

The New Forest is an excellent school holiday destination in the UK for families. Take the children cycling, horse riding, fishing, go for nature walks, bird watching and more. The beaches of the south coast are a short drive away for a multi-faceted school holiday. Renting self-catering accommodation makes the whole experience affordable. Preparing meals in your holiday cottage or lodge is simple if you have a freezer. Buy in ready meals to heat up or a ready cooked chicken at the local supermarket and throw together a salad. It does not have to difficult. Choose self-catering holiday accommodation with a dishwasher to make self-catering a pleasant and relaxing experience.

It is very easy to put together an independent self-catering holiday to the New Forest. The first step is to identify and book self-catering cottages or lodges that will accommodate your family comfortably, arrange your transport (there are railway stations if you plan to arrive by train) then plan your trip, organising cycle hire, horse riding or any other activities that your family would enjoy.


Planning your self-catering break in the New Forest

You may already have a list of things that you plan to do in the New Forest but it may be useful to also consider organised events and the time of year. Various New Forest organisations hold guided walks and special events that might be entertaining. The season is also important, the woodlands are filled with glorious scent of massed bluebells during early May, the moors are ablaze with pink heathers in August and the broad leaved trees of the forest take on dazzling autumnal hues come late September and October. One good place to be dazzled by autumn colours is at Exbury Gardens which also has a miniature steam railway to please the children.
