The Central Southern England region
The New Forest is an area of southern England which includes the largest remaining tracts of unenclosed pasture land, heathland and forest in the south east of England.
The New Forest coast extends for 26 miles in length making it up to 76% of Hampshire's total coastline (33 miles). This 33 miles is a very conservative value taken as the crow flies from the Hampshire-Dorset border to Chichester Harbour; if one follows the high water mark through every creek and inlet of every harbour and estuary the distance traversed becomes some 230 miles.
From the cottage the open forest is a half mile walk and it is possible to walk to Burley (5 miles), Brockenhurst (5 miles) and beyond. There are 2 pubs with gardens within a mile. The nearest shops and restaurants are at Sway.
More extensive shopping is available at New Milton (2 miles), Lymington (6 miles) and Christchurch (8 miles). There is a riding stable within a mile. The nature reserve on the coast at Keyhaven (7 miles) is popular with bird watchers. Children will love crabbing at Mudeford (6 miles), wild ponies in the forest, the charming coastal village of Milford on Sea (5 miles) or the sandy beach at Highcliffe (6 miles).
