Make the most of the autumn sunshine.

With an 'Indian Summer' usually forecast, the warm weather often lasts well into October. Autumn is a beautiful time and the New Forest is a kaleidoscope of colour and activity, just don't forget your camera!


The ideal conditions for the most stunning fall colours come as a result of sunny days and cooler nights, so once you've enjoyed the fall colours come back and relax in cosy accommodation.

At this time of year the children are back at school and the area starts to return to a more peaceful way of life, making now the ideal time to visit the local beaches and surrounding forest landscapes.
