Imagine walking through ancient forests, hand in hand with your special someone, the winter sun gleaming through the trees, and free-roaming animals passing by. There really is no better place for a romantic break this winter than the New Forest.

Dancing deer, frosty floors and spectacular sunrises and sunsets, these are just some of the many extraordinary sights waiting to be seen in the New Forest this winter, and a most magical time to spend with your partner and make unforgettable memories.

Cosy up by the fire together in local country pubs, enjoying delicious food and drink, after a lovely, crisp winter walk through the New Forest. Or if you’re feeling more energetic (or just need to warm up a little!), venture out on a romantic bike ride, following the winding paths across our stunning landscapes, spotting incredible New Forest animals in the misty distance along the way.

Impress your other half with a candlelit dinner at one of our stunning fine dining restaurants, or have a simple coffee date at one of our quaint tearooms. Rather be outdoors? Then wrap up and go on a picturesque winter picnic, with a hamper full of tasty local treats, surrounded by our incredible wildlife and nature.

Days out aren’t just for the summer time.  There’s something romantic about setting off for a winter day out – so why not wander around our fascinating museums and art galleries, visit our world-class attractions or take on some fun-filled activities together, such as canoeing, archery or horse riding.

So now we’ve whetted your appetite for romantic things to do here in the New Forest, all you have to do is book your stay!  The New Forest offers a huge choice of charming accommodation for your romantic getaway.

Our outstanding hotels offer the perfect romantic getaway, whether in a large country house hotel, a spa hotel or a sweet thatched hotel. Offering gorgeous rooms and suites, delightful restaurants, receptions areas and gardens, plus lots of other unbeatable facilities, a hotel stay makes for a memorable break with your significant other. The majority of our hotels are nestled in the New Forest, just a few steps away from open heathland and winter woodlands.

Prefer something a bit more secluded and private? Book a romantic break in a self catering cottage or holiday home in the New Forest.

Cosy up together under a blanket and watch the stars above you, with a hot chocolate cooked on a stove and the most peaceful surroundings, with not a noise, other than owls and foxes in the distance.

Many of our local holiday parks also have luxury accommodation too, ideal for a fairy-tale stay in the New Forest. Book to sleep in a treehouse or a charming log cabin, the perfect places to relax, soothe your spirit and enjoy some time together with your special someone. Alternatively, if you’re looking for a super homely experience, with tea and cake on arrival, stay at one of the many bed and breakfasts located within our National Park.
