Autumn Breaks

Autumn Breaks

Last of the summer sunshine.

The summer sun is still strong in the sky, the sea is warm and the beaches are empty, with an 'Indian Summer' usually forecast, the warm weather often lasts well into October. The children are back at school and the area starts to return to a more peaceful way of life.

September is the ideal time to enjoy the very best that a UK staycation has to offer. With so much to see and do along the coast, from the towns of Bournemouth and Poole, to the smaller, picturesque Dorset market towns and small quay side fishing town. The New Forest and countryside is also a hive of activity, with harvesting, farmers' markets and the fantastic New Forest walks: September is a truly wonderful time to visit.

Autumn is a beautiful time across the New Forest, the best conditions for the best fall colours is with sunny cool days and chilly nights, so once you've enjoyed the fall colours come back and relax in your private hot tub.

Autumn in the forest is a kaleidoscope of colour and activity, just don't forget your camera
