Discover the magic of an autumn getaway in the UK

Relax and unwind as you watch the sunset over our parks from the decking of your accommodation and see the changing colours of the leaves. Autumn is a beautiful time of year 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 your cosy accommodation.

At this time of year the children are back at school and the local area starts to return to a more peaceful way of life. This makes autumn the ideal time for couples and families with younger tots to stay, without the usual hustle and bustle throughout our parks. What's more, it means you can usually grab a saving whilst making the most of all our facilities!

Visit the local beaches or surrounding forest landscapes and make the most of the last days of warm sunshine. With an 'Indian Summer' usually forecast, the warm weather often lasts well into October here on the south coast!
