Hampshire is one of England’s loveliest and most picturesque counties and it has a huge amount to offer visitors. When you rent a holiday house in Hampshire you are guaranteed rolling green countryside, enormous enchanting forests, attractive beaches and rural market towns galore. And much more besides! And part of the beauty of this area is its proximity to London - a holiday house in Hampshire is only a couple of hours on a train from the capital.
Hampshire may well be best known for its famous National Park, the New Forest. Full of traditional shops, villages and pubs, and teeming with wildlife from deer and cattle to the legendary New Forest ponies, this is an idyllic place for a scenic bike ride and for whiling away a few hours. There are also attractions aplenty, from the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu to the gorgeous Exbury Gardens. If you’re staying in a holiday house in Hampshire then you must visit one or more of the coastal cities. Southampton has much to offer in the way of shopping and nightlife and Portsmouth is also well worth a visit for its waterside living and maritime history, which includes Fort Nelson and the HMS Victory in the Historic Dockyard. Along the same stretch of coastline there are plentiful beaches for strolling along and miles of stunning coastal paths for walkers, birdwatchers, and horse riders alike. A holiday house in Hampshire is a perfect place to take the family - something for everyone here.
