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.
Please have a look at the New Forest code - a reminder of how to care for the forest and it's animals whilst you stay with us.
