Getting to Know...New Forest Escapes

New Forest Escapes are one of our Accommodation Partners and their Keeper of Content, Zoe Conway tells us a little more about them.

New Forest Escapes was founded in 2013 with the idea for UK staycations to become more memorable. Founder Rachel Parsons started renting out her home as a holiday cottage and made sure that all those little extras that made a holiday special were included, of course with a personal touch.

New Forest Escapes is about providing a consistently high level of customer care across not only the booking service but also the holiday homes themselves.

Our guests trust us and that's why they keep coming back to us.

Our Favourite Accommodation

Jane, the managing director of everyday happiness at New Forest Escapes, loves ‘Whistlestop’, a luxury shepherd's Hut in the village of Brockenhurst with its very own red light sauna.

Sarah, our queen of office operations, loves ‘Moonwood House’, an effortlessly elegant property in the woods in Beaulieu, where she has everything she could ever want in a holiday home.

Zoe, our keeper of content is mesmerized by the views at ‘On the Rocks’ in Milford on Sea, whilst enjoying an outside barbecue.

Lauren, our social media butterfly, loves the location of ‘Seabiscuit’ in central Lymington, where shops, restaurants and the town Quay are just a minute's walkvaway.

How we'd spend a perfect local day

A perfect day starting in Milford on Sea would be breakfast at the Paddle on the Green - such a good selection of options for all family members.

Then a walk along the spit to visit Hurst Castle before taking the boat back to Keyhaven. Lunch at The Gun Inn is always a well-worth stop followed by a walk along the Sea wall. Enjoy the marshes, the endless changing scenery on the Solent and the bird watching before arriving in Lymington.

The Haven restaurant in Lymington’s yacht marina is a great pit stop for a drink or early dinner before heading back to Milford along the old highway route.
