About Us

We're New Forest Escapes...

A small, locally-owned and women-led company with our offices based in Lymington, almost next door to the St Barbe Museum. Our whole team, including Directors Rachel and Jane, live locally too – in or bordering on the beautiful and diverse New Forest National Park.

We all love where we live and, (cheesy as it sounds!) get a real kick from helping our guests create happy stays and even happier memories.

 

We're now a B Corporation ™

As a (hugely proud!) B Corp company, we strive to balance profit with purpose; with a ‘Greener & Greater’ ethos at the forefront of all we do…

Being a local team is a huge advantage, as we share our insider-info on where to go, what to do, and how to enjoy the New Forest. You can escape in a (tried and tested) way that supports our economy and protects our gorgeous ecosystem. We are always keen to learn and lead by example, so will often take part in activities like guided walks, litter picks and beach cleans.

 

From grand stays to short breaks...

Since our humble beginnings in 2012 we have now helped over 3000 groups of holidaymakers get the keys to their perfect home away from home in the New Forest.

Of course we’ve had the normal…family breaks, 70th birthdays, weddings…and we’ve had the downright unusual: pet geese, divorce parties and film shoots!

Big, small, luxury, eccentric, seaside and forest… from 2 nights to 2 weeks, or longer (up to 6 months), we have a stay to suit! We’ve gone from 1 house in 2011 to over 40 now.

We're a safe pair of hands...

Our reputation is everything to us, we are proud of the care we take of people. Our experience and knowledge of the area and our houses is excellent. When guests need help deciding where to stay or planning their trip, no problem just give us a call…

Like so many of us, COVID caused great frustration and negative impact to our lives and our business. In response to the situation we were quick to offer super-flexible booking terms so our guests could rebook or simply get their money back, without friction.
