The New Forest holiday cottage industry is booming once again!

As travel restrictions begin to ease, staycations are the new travel trend, with the majority of the British public choosing to keep well away from long, crowded queues at the airport. With dogs being very much part of the family, we all want to bring our dog along too! 

As the oldest and the largest holiday cottage letting agency in the New Forest trading for over 40 years, with over a hundred amazing properties, many being dog-friendy, New Forest Cottages will help you find that perfect place to stay.

Whether it’s a week or two away with the family, a romantic break or romping across the miles of ancient forest with the dogs, we have properties ranging from cosy cottages and woodland retreats to modern apartments and town houses, so there’s something to suit everyone.

Having opened their cottage doors to guests again earlier this month, New Forest Cottages have been frantically busy taking bookings for the summer. Dates for the autumn and Christmas are as popular as ever, with the ancient trees giving New England in fall a run for its money, and there's nothing more magical than walks across the forest during winter months.

Each property page describes the holiday home as well as detailed information about the area, location map and where to eat and drink locally - many with reviews from past guests. A 'walk through' of rooms in the property via a Virtual Tour has been hugely popular for potential guests. For top tips check out their blogs on top beaches, best river and pond paddle spots, pub walks and walkies along the Solent Way

For New Forest Cottages, it's all about good old-fashioned customer service mixed with the latest technology and fantastic online presence. If you're thinking about renting your home as a holiday let or looking for somewhere for friends and family to stay when they visit, take a look at  or give them a call on 01590 679 655.



What a weekend!

What a fantastic weekend! Dogstival was a fantastic event for both dogs, their owners and dog lovers - 10x better than any other dog show. So much to see and do on the grounds, including competitions and fun activities you could try out with your dog on the day! Great stalls around the event, including food & drink, dog toys and other products, dog portraits, useful dog information e.g. vets and insurance and loads more... there were even stands that sold dog pizza and dog popcorn! Easily accessible location - with no traffic and great parking - which is always great for an event. In the current times, it was brilliantly socially distanced, with visitors, staff around the show and in the stalls all being careful and adhering to social distancing and other safety measures. Can't wait for next year's Dogstival!
