Pink Cottage, Woodgreen, New Forest, Hampshire

Hampshire has long been one of the UK’s top seaside holiday destinations, with famous stretches of coastline including the chalk cliffs of the Isle of Wight, historic Portsmouth and Winchester, the hubbub of Southampton and two of the country’s most-loved national parks. So, why not make this the year that you discover Hampshire?

A charming cottage in heart of the New Forest

To soak up the Hampshire atmosphere, Pink Cottage is the place. A thatched-roof cottage with mature English country garden, this chocolate-box property is nestled in the secluded village of Woodgreen deep in the New Forest National Park.

The 300-year-old cottage accommodates up to six people in rural splendour, with on-site parking and a host of village amenities within easy walking distance. The interior boasts exposed beams, a log-burning stove and original brick and ironwork features, and guests are sure to enjoy the comfortable soft furnishings at the end of each day.

A coastal county just waiting to be explored

There’s something to keep the whole family entertained in this coastal county. You can take the ferry over to the Isle of Wight for a day-trip, or soak up the view of the coastline from Portsmouth’s gargantuan Spinnaker Tower. The New Forest is a great place to let the kids loose to explore, while Paultons Park is a classic theme park that’s ideal for a summer afternoon.

The county is synonymous with Britain’s illustrious naval heritage. Portsmouth is home to the Historic Dockyard with famous vessels such as The Warrior and Mary Rose, while just across the water in Gosport is the Royal Navy Submarine Museum. If you want to go back a little further in time, there’s the Royal Armouries at Fort Nelson, or the rambling mediaeval streets of Winchester.
