Hythe Holiday Cottages - Hythe Holidays
The New Forest town of Hythe is located close to the major city of Southampton, and overlooks Southampton water. This key location has a strong maritime connection and is also a great vantage point to watch international passenger liners steaming into Southampton port. With plenty of local amenities and access to the open spaces of the New Forest right on your doorstep, Hythe holiday cottages provide visitors with the perfect location from which to experience the best that this pretty little town has to offer.
Home of the rich and famous
Hythes connection with the sea stretches back over the centuries and is still important today. The seafront has been developed to include a luxury marina, where the rich and famous regularly moor their yachts. There are also plenty of Hythe holiday cottages close to the marina, giving visitors outstanding views across the water. The pier railway and ferry service across to Southampton transports visitors across Southampton Water at half-hourly intervals throughout the day, and is the oldest working pier train in the world.
During World War II, Hythe was used as a port for the little ships of the Royal Navy, the Motor Torpedo Boats and the RAF Air/Sea Rescue Boats, and played a key role in the defence of the South of England coastline. In 1960, The Hovercraft Development Company moved to Hythe, giving the town a major economic boost.
The New Forest on your doorstep
Today, Hythe holidays are popular with visitors of all ages, thanks to the wealth of attractions in the area and easy access to the city of Southampton. Head in the opposite direction away from Southampton Water and you are immediately surrounded by the beauty of the New Forest, with horseback riding, mountain biking and walking for the more adventurous. In the town itself there are events taking place all year round. Every year in August, the marina hosts the R.N.L.I. Great Waterside Raft Race, where teams race rafts in the Solent Estuary to raise money for the R.N.L.I.
