About the Accommodation

The Hayloft at High Forest Cottages is a stylish two bedroom, two bathroom cottage. It can accommodate up to eight people in the New Forest. You will love staying here with just the two of you, with friends or family, enjoying long walks in the Forest or visiting one of the quaint Forest villages. Returning after a day exploring, you can enjoy cooking together in the spacious kitchen and having long leisurely meals around the large dining table, before relaxing in front of the fire.

Nestled in the ancient North Ridge of The New Forest National Park, The Hayloft at High Forest Cottages provides a peaceful hideway to relax and enjoy the unique beauty of the forest. Situated within the forest boundary, inside the cattle grid areas, our regular visitors include the famous ponies and cattle that make the forest such a stunning wildlife environment. Whilst deer are a rare sight, we often welcome a small herd into the paddocks to enjoy some free grazing! The Hayloft is a beautifully decorated and furnished two bedroom cottage, with its own large sunny and private enclosed garden and gorgeous views across the forest beyond. The open plan living space has comfortable sofas, a wood burning stove and TV. There are books, games and toys for your use. The kitchen and dining area are open plan to the living space and the kitchen has everything you need to cook lovely dinners, if you don't want to head to one of the many lovely pubs in the area. It has an electric hob, oven and microwave, dishwasher and fridge freezer. Dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid, cleaning products, dish cloths and tea towels are provided. Milk, coffee, tea and sugar are provided on arrival. The spacious dining table seats eight comfortably. Both bedrooms have a superking size bed, which if you prefer can be set up as two single beds. Each bedroom has an additional pull out single bed. We provide high quality towels and bedlinen for each of our guests. There is plenty of hanging and shelf space for clothes and other belongings in each bedroom. A hairdryer is also available in each bedroom. Between the two bedrooms upstairs is a spacious family bathroom, with shower over, toilet and basin, with plenty of storage space for your own toiletries. Downstairs is a shower room, with a lovely walk in shower, toilet and basin. For our young guests we can provide travel cots, high chairs, an electric steriliser and playmats. A stair gate is fitted at the top of the stairs. The kitchen is supplied with bowls, plates, cups and cutlery suitable for toddlers. Being parents of twins ourselves we fully appreciate what travelling with little ones involves and would like to do anything to make going away easier!

We would love to welcome you to our piece of paradise. We have both given up successful careers in London since our twin boys were born in 2013. We moved to the New Forest at the end of 2014 and just love welcoming guests to our beautiful holiday cottages at High Forest Cottages. We have five cottages in total and welcome larger family or friend groups wishing to use multiple cottages for a special event or annual holiday together. We are pretty much in the middle of nowhere, with only a small holding as neighbours. Cross the road and you will find open heathland, forested areas, small rivers and plenty of wildlife. There are lovely of paths to explore for an early evening stroll or a proper hike. You can bring your bikes or hire them locally and explore the extensive off road cycle network in the Forest. Road cycling is very popular too and there are regular races held. There are plenty of dog friendly pubs nearby which serve good food and good local beer. There is a little village shop 2 miles away, and bigger supermarkets a little further away. You are more than welcome to get online shopping delivered after your arrival.


You are most likely driving to the accommodation, although a taxi from Salisbury, Brockenhurst or Southampton stations is an option. A popular option is to cycle from the property, so feel free to bring your bikes. Alternatively, you can hire bikes from a number of locations in and around the forest, and many will deliver to your property. And, of course, there is walking directly from your doorstep, with miles of forest and heath to explore.
