Situated in the ancient little village of Damerham, this New Forest holiday cottage makes a lovely base for exploring the New Forest National Park and enjoying days out to the South Coast.

The New Forest is full of things to see and do,
from walking, cycling and horse riding to wildlife attractions, amusement parks and great museums. Just a handful of family favourites include the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu, Marwell Zoo, Monkey World, Adventure Wonderland and, every tot's favourite, Peppa Pig World at Paultons Park.

The South Coast is less than an hour’s drive from Hideaway Self Catering Cottage, including seven
miles of golden sandy beaches at the happening holiday resort of Bournemouth. Damerham is also only 25 mins from Salisbury

Hopping over to the Isle of Wight also makes a
fun day out, strung with sandy bays and boasting excellent family attractions including Dinosaur Isle and the fantasy gardens at Blackgang Chine to
play cowboys and pirates.

The most iconic monument of Stonehenge is also only an hour away along with the historic cathedral city of Winchester.
