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.

 

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.

Always ready to learn...

We continually up-skill our team to improve their knowledge of the National Park and also help building their life skills, and now we’re mapping out a team-led giving program (time and money).

Most recently we have been with Wild New Forest, learning about some of the more fragile habitats and pressures faced by nature within the National Park and surrounding nature reserves.

In February we are finding out about the importance of local food provenance and March is ecosystems and bees/pollinators…
