new forest holidays
At Hucklesbrook Farm we have 4 ponies, 9 hens and a rooster called Lester. Cattle can be seen grazing in the fields. Children are welcome to collect the hen's eggs.
With direct access to the New Forest our holiday cottages are in an ideal location for walkers and cyclists.
games room and cycle storage
Storage for bicycles is available within the courtyard encompassing our new forest holiday cottages. There is also a games room with table football, table tennis, and a collection of other outdoor games.
The hens live in the old orchard by the stream that runs past the farm. In the old orchard you will find swings and, new for 2013, the Langley fort and sandpit provided by the active toy company.
village life & country pubs
Our New Forest cottages are situated on the edge of the village of Gorley. Gorley has its own farm shop offering locally reared meat. Close by you can pick your own seasonal fresh fruit and vegetables and take a steam train ride.
The Royal Oak, the local pub, is fifteen minutes walk away. It offers good food, local ales, and plenty of character. Little Mere Restaurant with tea rooms attached is next door. We provide all our cottages with torches, so walking back at night is no problem.
For a taste of the New Forest take a 40 minute cross country walk over Gorley Common to the Hyde Farm Shop and the Stable Tea Rooms.
Hyde Farm Shop offers super local produce and The Stable Tea Rooms are a must for homemade cakes and scones.
the new forest
Hucklesbrook Farm holiday cottages sit on the western edge of the New Forest and offer excellent access for both walkers and cyclists.
Pony trekking is a great way to experience the New Forest and is offered by many local riding schools. However, advance booking is advised.
Try a spot of fishing in the Avon Valley and visit Avon angling centre for fishing tackle and advice.
Or let the beautiful surroundings inspire your artistic side, like Marianne Dorn from art2art.
Ringwood has a popular market every Wednesday, where you can buy local produce. Close to Ringwood are the Town and Country Experience Museum, the Raptor and Reptile Centre and an excellent leisure centre.
Fordingbridge has a very attractive park on the banks of the river Avon. The park offers a play area for children and plenty of ducks to feed. Near to Fordingbridge are the Rockbourne Roman Villa, Breamore House & Country Side Museum and the New Forest Water Park.
