The Walks

Our first reason is simply for the walks. With many walking routes across The New Forest, you and your partner can enjoy a romantic stroll taking in the incredible scenic views the forest has to offer.

Quaint Towns & Villages

There are many small towns and villages to explore across on a New Forest getaway. You’ll find charming historic villages such as Burley, where you can visit village shops and cosy pubs, as well as towns like Ringwood, famous for its markets. Here you can visit the well-known Ringwood Brewery, or pop to Hockey’s Farm Shop to purchase fresh New Forest produce.

Free-roaming Animals

Probably one of our favourite reasons to visit The New Forest is to see the animals. You will be amazed to see friendly wild ponies, horses, donkeys and cows roaming freely in the forest and local villages.

The Coast

A massive bonus of visiting The New Forest is that as well as a forest escape, you can also make the most of being so close to the coast! With seaside towns such as Milford on Sea and incredible sandy beaches stretching across the coast, there are plenty of options for that walk along the beach at sunset - the perfect end to a day.

With a variety of accommodation available there is an option to suit all types of holidays and budgets. Whether it be a luxurious cottage such as Honeysuckle (pictured below), a hot tub escape, a caravan or even a touring/camping pitch, you’ll find something for you both.

Romantic Hot Tubs

Finally, is the hot tubs. There’s nothing better than a chilled evening with your partner, soaking in the hot tub, with an optional glass of wine. Especially in these chillier months, you can spend an evening under the stars, whilst keeping warm! Check out our range of hot tub holidays.
