Choosing a cottage to stay in the New Forest can be a memorable and wonderful experience. To wake up in the forest in a self-catering cottage, house or apartment will always help make your stay pleasurable. The New Forest National Park is a wonderful place to stay. There is a huge selection of holiday cottages to spend a long weekend or a week many of which are located within the cattle gridded areas of the New Forest.
Staying in a self catering cottage gives you the freedom of being home from home. Being able to come and go as you please is perfect if you love the outdoors. Catching the early sunrise in the forest is an experience which will bring you back again and again to breathe in the early morning freshness of the forest. Parts of the forest are often covered with a blanket of mist which lifts upon arrival of the sun. Many of the cottages have real log fires and are set in peaceful, secluded locations. Evening walks as the sun is setting will bring an end to a perfect day of fresh air and tranquility.
Renting a cottage can sometimes be a bit more costly than staying at other accommodation establishments such as a campsite or a bed and breakfast but the freedom it provides far outweighs the cost. It can also be substantially cheaper than staying in one of the many luxury hotels in the forest.
There is plenty to see & do in the New Forest at all times of the year with the ever changing scenery and colours of the land.
The New Forest is a beautiful area for many types of activities:
And this, our life, exempt from public haunt, finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks, sermons in stones, and good in everything.William Shakespeare
