The New Forest National Park is a wilderness of heathland, ancient woodland, and beautiful coastline just 2 hours south of London. If you want a pool too – here you go, these houses all have great swimming pools.
PS -You can also wild swim on the beaches from these places:
Eat me Drink me Cottage and Ploughmans Cottage, is a 10 minute stroll to Tanners Lane beach where you can wild swim. Kids will love splashing in the warm water channels here at low tide. The beach is rocky and sandy. Kayak, kite surf etc here too.
Pitts Deep has swimming on the beach directly in front of the house.
Boat Shed we’ve included because in the warmer months, you can swim at the Lymington Sea Water baths (largest outdoor saltwater Lido in Britain) which is next door. And it’s so cheap it’s nearly free… Read more on our blog about it here.
Cliff House has the long beach at Milford on Sea just 4 minutes walk from the door. Plenty of wild-swimmers use this beach to train for long-distance challenges. It’s great for kids too.
