New Forest Escapes is a small, locally owned company, whose friendly team love where they live, but most of all absolutely love helping their guests create happy stays with happy memories. They believe in exceptional customer service, approachable, friendly staff and has a strong commitment to the local communities and economy in the area.  Their mission is to inspire moments of happiness in everything they do and to make things as simple and easy for everyone they communicate with. It all started for New Forest Escapes in 2011 with owner, Rachel Parsons, her six month old baby and one holiday cottage.  Now after 10 years, Rachel and her team have more than 40 houses in the New Forest area and are always looking for more to add to their portfolio.

What they like: Breakfast on the beach, Swallows and Amazons adventures, toasting marshmallows over the fire by the shore, the lived-in look, English eccentric style, exploring, country tracks, creativity and fun, Scrabble on the jetty, story-tellers spinning tales in forest glades, scrummy picnics…

What they don’t like: Beige and boring, characterless identikit rooms, thin mattresses, shower mould, no free condiments, having to lay your own fire, not being able to find the matches, scrabbling around trying to find information on where to go and what to do.

Who are their guests and how they help them? Since 2012 they have helped over 3000 groups holiday in the New Forest from family breaks to 70th birthdays and weddings. And they have also hosted the unusual: pet geese, divorce parties and film shoots.

Going that extra bit…New Forest Escapes knows how important it is to get ‘the magic bits’ into a break. Holidaying in groups can add stress but the company’s ‘Insider’s Guides ‘ help take the heat out of arranging things and the team has worked up some great ‘experience ideas’ for guest inspiration. Their inside local knowledge gives guests the confidence to know which pubs serve the more bizarre brews, which restaurants serve the freshest fish and also the perfect spot for morning yoga and forest bathing. It’s their inside knowledge that makes New Forest Escapes the perfect choice for selecting your holiday accommodation and making your dream holiday become a reality.
