Hampshire and New Forest cottages by the sea

Head to Hampshire and New Forest for more than ponies and forest excursions - there's a whole coastline with selected holiday properties by the sea to stay in and enjoy the sea air.

Everyone loves a seaside holiday so we've picked a couple of the best holiday cottages by the sea in Hampshire and New Forest for you to enjoy. The south coast is calm and beautiful, with views out across the channel as far as the Isle of Wight. Wander along the Solent riverside to where it becomes the sea and stride out along the spit until you're surrounded on all sides by the sea. Park your deckchair on the shingle beaches and relax in front of the sparkling view over the deep blue.

High end cafes and restaurants line the waterside for leisurely waterside meals before strolling off the calories along the seafront. Boutique shops in places such as Lymington provide distraction for shopaholics, and many a pub for refreshments . Perhaps start out in the forest and wend your way to the sea so you can justify your pit stop. 

Whichever luxury accommodation you choose as a base, returning to a holiday home by the sea will be welcomed after a day out exploring Hampshire and New Forest. We've found 2 places perfect for a seaside stay.
