The Central Southern England / Hampshire 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 / Lymington area
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.

4 adults and 5 children all comfortable accommodated. Walking distance from the High Street and we enjoyed the walk through town to the waterfront. Friendly and very hospitable. No request was too much trouble for the owners and I would highly recommend to anyone with a large family or group of friends.

The house is really clean and modern. There is loads of parking space and a long storage area that we used for our bikes and golf clubs. When we arrived Sarah had provided tea, coffee, wine etc. Really nice treat. My friends and i have stayed there twice now and had a lovely time on both occasions.
