House | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 7
Forest Glen is a lovingly restored and charming cottage ideally situated in the heart of the New Forest National Park with the open forest only yards from the front door. The village of Brockenhurst with its shops, cafes and pubs, is less than a mile away. Forest Glen is ideal for a relaxing self-catering break with four bedrooms sleeping up to 7 people.
All the recreational facilities available in the New Forest are all within easy reach of the property.

The Central Southern England region
Have your cake and eat it! Visitors to Forest Glen can enjoy the picture postcard pretty New Forest which is on the doorstep but can also venture slightly further afield to the wonderful beaches on the South Coast which are easy to get to.
Although right in the South of England, Forest Glen is easily accessible from all over the country with excellent road, rail and airport links.
There really is something for everyone in the region - kids will love Paultons Park and Peppa Pig World. All ages can enjoy Marwell Zoo. Consumers amongst you can do your bit for the economy at Southampton's West Quay shopping centre or Bournemouth's Castle Point. Sailors can get easy access to the Solent. The area is rich in history and culture. Cyclists will be spoilt for choice.
Brockenhurst is in the heart of the New Forest National Park which is 220 square miles of unique landscape and an area of outstanding natural beauty. Majestic woodlands, rare heathland and a spectacular coastline provide fabulous opportunities for recreation, enjoyment and discovery.
The only way to reveal The New Forest's hidden gems and truly appreciate the sights, sounds and smells of the forest is to get out there and explore. As well as the forest itself there is a wealth of local activities to please all members of your party -
- Miles of cycling and walking tracks with numerous local cycle hire shops
- Choice of local riding stables to explore the forest on horseback
- Beaches of Milford on Sea, Mudeford, Avon and Bournemouth all easily accessible
Local attractions such as Beaulieu National Motor Museum, Exbury Gardens, Paultons Park, Calshot Activity Centre
- Sailing and canoeing
- Ferry links from Lymington to Isle of Wight
- The renowned restaurant "The Pig" is within walking distance of Forest Glen (and we can personally vouch for the quality of food!)
