Local Area Information

Inglewood Cottage is ideally located between the coast and the forest, on a quiet road in New Milton, a small town with many local services.

The New Forest

The New Forest National Park is just a few miles from the cottage where you can gaze upon ponies, cows, donkeys, deer and pigs during the year. Within the park are the picturesque and charming towns and villages of Lymington, Lyndhurst, Brockenhurst, Beaulieu and Burley providing shops, eateries and public houses.

The Beaches

The cottage is just over a mile from Barton on Sea clifftop and beach - gorgeous walks with magnificent views overlooking the Needles on the Isle of Wight - dogs allowed off lead all year.

A few miles to the West is Avon Beach & Mudeford Quay - park up and walk the promenade from Steamer Point to Mudeford Quay - enjoy a coffee at one of the cafes - take the foot ferry to the Spit and wander among the famous beach huts.
