The New Forest

The New Forest National Park was created as an English medieval deer hunting area in 1079 by William the Conquerer, and is still largely in possession of the Crown. It is an extensive, beautiful natural area & is a welcome venue for ramblers, cyclists, campers, dog walkers & horse riders to name but a few. New Forest ponies, cattle, pigs & deer all openly graze throughout the area, which is up to 50 miles wide from the North, down to the coast at Lymington.

Choose from a selection of New Forest Landmarks to visit during your stay.

We have 7 wonderful properties in the National Park (and a vw camper van called ‘Jessica’) sleeping from 4 up to 29 (allowing for combinations).

Ther are 2 x 300 year old thatched cottages, Beck Cottage sleeping 12 + 2 in the village of Woodgreen and Forest Drove sleeping 11 in the village of Hangersley. Our smallest property, Riverside Lodge, which sleeps 4 + 2 (including camping pod), is the most spectacular. It sits on the banks of the Hampshire Avon and is beside it’s own small lake. Criddlestyle Cottage (which has it’s own woodland)  Mews Hill and the Riverside Lodge all have private fishing, stables and a paddock. When booked together, Mews Hill is able to seat 24 around a single table, perfect for those family birthday celebrations.

Arniss Lodge and Arniss Farmhouse are located next to Arniss Equestrian for handy  hacks into the New Forest. They also have a paddock, great for a dog run or for grazing your own horses.  Additionally, we have the aforementioned 1979 VW Camper Van called ‘Jessica’ which can be parked at all of the properties (except for Riverside Lodge) to provide additional sleeping accommodation.
