Our houses are a luxury and eclectic collection of quirky homes in and around the ancient forest, rivers and beaches of the New Forest National Park.

Whether you're wanting a beach holiday, a romantic escape or a ‘Swallows and Amazons’ beach adventures for the all the family, we can help you.

We often help people arrange celebrations. Milestone birthdays, weddings, 'going away' or 'coming back' parties and hen do's. We can help you organise a professional story-teller, a chef to do an Alice in Wonderland teas, a marquee for 200 or just sandcastles, marshmallow cooking and sparklers on the beach – just ask.

Increasingly we're organising holidays for groups travelling with someone who is ill, frail or less mobile.

These are our current places to rent.
