The New Forest National Park is a wonderful area to explore whatever the time of year but Autumn is perhaps the most spectacular season as the colours of the trees begin to turn, the light is clear and the air fresh, and the ponies start to grow their long furry coats for winter. Forest and sea meet at the Solent shore close to East Boldre within easy reach of Bartley Barn self catering holiday cottage. Come and take an Autumn weekend or weekday break - contact us for special short break prices during October and November.

The New Forest is more than a day trip - it is the perfect destination for a a week's holiday or a weekend break. In Autumn there is so much to see and do, the attractions are open - Exbury gardens is a blaze of colour, Beaulieu National Motor Museum, has a host of undercover attractions, New Forest Cider has it's apple presses working and of course there is lots of forest paths and coastal walks to explore.
