This is the perfect place to watch the sunset, the stars, or even just enjoy a nice glass of local cider in the warm summer glow. This snug also doubles as an extra bedroom with one of the sofas cleverly disguising a bed.

The New Forest is found in the South East of England, it covers most of South West Hampshire spreading into South East Wiltshire and East Dorset.
The New Forest is known mainly for the New Forest National park which, once used as a hunting ground for William the Conqueror, is an area of stunning natural beauty, encompassing waterways and rivers, spreading over an impressive 566 sq km, stretching all the way to the coast. This gives visitors a wealth of things to do, perfectly balancing coast, countryside, cliff walks and the more urban village and town areas.
Guests are free to walk, cycle or even ride through the national park, where they will be sure to come across the New Forest ponies which graze and live here all year round. (Be sure to pick up a lucky New Forest horse shoe from a local gift shop before leaving!) There are also deer, owls, otters, all sorts of British wildlife can be found here. Beyond this there are many sanctuaries, gardens and even a wildlife park, all within the park area. The waterways that run through here are also impressive, offering visitors the opportunity to canoe, kayak, sail and even fish.
After an exciting day exploring the forest, visitors will find a whole host of locally sourced cuisine nearby, where one can enjoy a traditional meal of game and vegetables in a local public house or venture into a local village to experience the catch of the day, both accompanied by locally brewed cider, ale or beer.
Beyond the expanse of nature, coastline and cliff walks, there are also tea rooms, restaurants, a water park, theme parks and even the main shopping hub of Southampton, all just a short drive away.
