We are often asked by guests what is the best time of year to come and explore the New Forest and stay in our accessible holiday cottages, and it is really difficult to suggest... as the forest and Lymington has something to offer all year round, including numerous events that happen annually in and around the New Forest and we have tried to list a few of them below, as you may want to plan your visit to include some of them, we will continue to add annual events to this page - and post reminders on our facebook page.
As a photographer and someone whom has lived in the New Forest area since I was born, it is really hard for me to tell you what time of year is the best time to visit the forest and the coast - as there is so much to offer all year round and I try and explain why...
So we would recommend visiting in every season!

We plan to add more annual events as we find them... many of the events listed here were Pre-Covid, so please check for the latest updates.
If you host an annual event in the New Forest area or that is within an easy drive and is accessible then please send us details to: email@example.com - thank you!
