Getting There

How to get to New Forest

The New Forest is, by its nature, a sparse area, with just a few small towns and villages covering the large region. Most people find it convenient to first travel to one of the nearby large cities - Portsmouth, Southampton, and Bournemouth - and then travel on to their New Forest holiday letting from there. Southampton and Bournemouth have decent sized airports within close distance to the New Forest. Alternatively, some people will find it more convenient to fly into one of the London airports and then make the straightforward journey to the forest. Because of the rural nature of the New Forest, it’s recommended to have a letting car, though you may wish to cycle and walk once in the area itself.

Weather & Climate

New Forest weather - what to expect

The New Forest’s climate is similar to that of that rest of the UK, which is to say: it’s pretty unpredictable, and it’s not uncommon for it to be both sunny and rainy in the same day. As such, those with New Forest holiday lettings will find it beneficial to pack waterproof clothing for their trip. During the summer, the weather is typically warm, T-shirt weather, while autumn and winter are often characterised by overcast and cool temperatures.

Attractions

What to do in the New Forest

People don’t necessarily book a New Forest holiday home for the attractions - they go for the New Forest, which is the destination and attraction all rolled into one.

This area is an outdoor lover's dream, with many activities available. Lace up your walking boots and go for a stroll along the lengthy trails that wind through the National Park. Go for as long as you like, a short stroll or a 16 km trek. You’ll be rewarded by beautiful woodland, open land, and the odd classic English pub, where you might just want to terminate your walk and enjoy some delicious homemade food (and maybe a real ale while you’re at it).

For those who like their outdoor activities with a dash of adrenaline, why not have a go at some intense cycling - there are more than 160 km of trails and it’s a great way to see the diversity of the area. Or why not head out on the water for a spot of water skiing or wakeboarding? Horse Riding is also a popular activity with adults and kids in the New Forest.

It’s not all about nature here, though. There are also beautiful market towns that are great to explore. Lymington, a port town, features beautiful architecture, narrow roads, and quaint shops and cafes, while picturesque Beaulieu is home to Buckler’s Hard, a living museum where you’ll be transported back to the 18th century, and The National Motor Museum, which features an excellent exhibition of vintage cars and other vehicles.

Family Activities

New Forest for children

Booking a New Forest holiday home is an ideal getaway for families with children, because this area is loaded with many great family-friendly activities. That being said, just the nature of the park, with all its nooks and crannies and open land, will fascinate children from the outset.

Get up close to nature in a controlled setting by visiting Bolderwood Deer Sanctuary. It is possible to see deer in the park without visiting the sanctuary, but it’s not always guaranteed, so stop by the viewing platform for a view of these native mammals.

If you want to give your children a fun activity that is also educational, head along for one of the organised events put on by the park. These include trails through various sections of the park with a tour guide and a look at the wildlife, such as birds in their natural environment.

For a simple yet memorable activity, grab a kite from the souvenir store and head to Whitefield Moor. Fly them high and perhaps enjoy a relaxing picnic in a spot with great views, before heading back to your New Forest holiday letting to rest up for the following day's activities.
