what makes this special...

Close to Coast

Thankfully the Hampshire Coast is not well known. Traffic jams here are rare yet we have fabulous sandy beaches and secret coves. The National Park and surrounding coast has many secret beaches. 

Our beaches are rarely busy even in peak summer and in our Insiders Guide, we will point you to seclusion and silence, secret picnic spots, seaside castles, dens to explore and trees to climb – all far from the madding crowd. 

Some of these houses are quite extraordinary and give guests access to parts of the coast that are normally extremely private.

  • Thank you for a FABULOUS welcome.....lovely time had with friends. Great kitchen for a dinner party, sitting in front of the fire and great accommodation. Amazing location and walks with views of the water! Thank you for our lovely welcome with all the lights on. We will return. Thank you so much.

  • Pitts Deep Cottage is one of the most gorgeous places and locations I have EVER stayed in. So stylishly and artistically furnished than it felt like a well-loved home, not simply a holiday let. The views of the sea from the windows and deck are spectacular. The special touches of logs for the fire-pit, sourdough bread and cake on arrival were so welcome. The owners went out of their way to provide an old dvd player so we could watch a movie. Honestly the place is so lovely, we didn't want to leave. The properties at New Forest Escapes all seem to have a special quality about them.
