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).

"Delightfully welcoming cottage, felt at home within minutes."
The cottage was clean, organized and well equipped. The kids enjoyed the badminton in the garden and the adults loved the large kitchen for gathering. The coastal walks and beaches were super and the quaint towns surrounding were fun to explore. I would not hesitate to return or recommend this cottage; the owners were helpful throughout the booking process and the stay.

"Great Cottage....Excellent Location"
Extremely comfortable cottage with all the facilities you would expect and more.
We wanted for nothing.
Excellent location giving easy access to shopping in lovely towns such as Lymington, the wonderful and picturesque new forest and some great beaches, also dog friendly.
Would certainly return especially if we could have another week of wall to wall sun.!!

"Comfortable, pretty cottage in a beautiful part of the world"
One Red Cottage is a pretty, well equipped property in a beautiful location. Although having transport is a necessity, there are lots of things to do within a fairly small radius of Tiptoe. The cottage was clean equipped with useful and well-kept items. It has all mod-cons and as eclectic mix of books/games/DVDs etc! The garden is a good size and safe and therefore good for children. By far the best place in the cottage is the large kitchen with its large table and plenty of natural light. Would very much recommend this as a place to stay for exploring the New Forest. Well priced and well positioned.
