New Forest farm holidays in self-catering cottages

 

Enjoy a week or two during the summer holidays or a shorter break at any time of year on a farm in and around the New Forest, on the south coast of England. Farm holidays are amongst the most memorable for children, feeding animals, trailing through mud in Wellington boots, watching and maybe riding tractors and trailers. The countryside offers a natural form of fun, the chance to spot butterfiles, many varieties of birds, to learn about cycles of life, and all in the fresh air.

For parents there may be the opportunity to taste some of the freshest home grown foods in the New Forest area.

Take a look at the cottages on farms shown below and plan for that relaxing rural break. The Isle of Wight is just across the Solent from the New Forest so that some cottages in the Isle of Wight may also be shown. This is another lovely rural area with plenty of farms and organic produce.
