Welcome to New Forest Cottages

The New Forest is steeped in history; named as the “New Hunting Forest” by William the Conqueror nearly 1000 years ago, much of this ancient landscape has remained unchanged and you will still see plenty of livestock including ponies, cattle and pigs roaming free.

The oldest and the largest

Whilst our history does not go back quite that far, New Forest Cottages was established in 1978 making it the oldest and largest holiday cottage letting agency in the area. From comfortable town houses and luxury apartments to traditional thatched cottages in quaint villages, we really do have something for you all. No matter what your needs, our extensive choice of holiday accommodation means that you’re bound to have a fantastic holiday with us in the New Forest.

Our sister companies

If you’re thinking of renting a holiday cottage in the West Country, our sister company, Toad Hall Cottages is sure to have something for you. We also manage a portfolio of long-let residential properties in the Lymington area through our other sister company, Ridgeway Rents.

What our customers say

"Rented quite a few of your cottages over the past five years or so, love them all, love the ease of booking, arriving and all your little touches. Thank you."
"Very friendly people at the end of the phone who look after and care about your booking. Many thanks again."
"Your service is brilliant, as it was last year too."
"Office staff are very accommodating when speaking to them. All first class!"
"I just wanted to thanks you all so much for your kindness and care. We were very touched by your supportive telephone calls, telling us how sorry you were. We could not believe that a commercial enterprise could show so much genuine sympathy." (Husband became ill and so holiday could not be taken)
