The Central Southern England region
Hampshire is a county on the southern coast of England in the United Kingdom. Tourist attractions include many beautiful and popular seaside resorts, the world renowned motor museum at Beaulieu and national parks in both New Forest and the South Downs. Hampshire has a long maritime history and two of England's largest ports, Portsmouth and Southampton, lie on its coast. The county boasts a rich cultural heritage, varied coastlines, vibrant cities, bustling market towns and unspoilt countryside, making it an ideal holiday destination in the 'English Riviera'.
The weather in the area tends to be better and generally warmer than other parts of the country.
The New Forest is a region of astounding natural beauty, boasting ancient woodlands, large open heathland picturesque water-ways and miles of cycle paths and walks. There are plenty of welcoming, friendly pubs and restaurants in the area offering hearty traditional fayre, and locally brewed ales.
Throughout the forest, you'll come across the ponies, donkeys and cattle that freely graze the great expanse of heather moorland. Perhaps you'll be lucky enough to spot some of our shyer inhabitants, the deer- who try their best to avoid being seen against the stunning backdrop of rolling heathland and deciduous forest.
If you decide to come to The New Forest around Autumn time, known in the area as 'Pannage Season', you'll often spot the odd family of pigs roaming around, in order that they may feed on fallen acorns.

"Well equipped Cottage within easy reach of local attractions!"
This was booked for a family of 10 people and the cottage was very clean with a very modern feel. The kitchen was well equipped, bedrooms had ample storage and special touches were the wine, milk and bread which was very welcomed. The location of the cottage was close to the New Forest and popular sandy beaches less than 20 miles away. The only thing I would suggest would be a blind in the bathroom velux window.
If the cottage had a second bathroom this would have made showering for a large group a lot quicker.
