The New Forest is well renowned as being one of the most beautiful parts of the UK, hence the National Park status. This deal gives you a really great opportunity to go and explore the area in a way you have probably only dreamt about after watching an Austin Powers movie; in a 1979 VW Campervan!
This deal I have found is available on groupon.co.uk for £199. This is the price of the 3 night hire of a campervan. It is worth noting that these vans have enough space to sleep four people! The van comes with a cooker, fridge, sink, iPod dock, 240v power points and a fan heater! You’ll also be picked up and dropped off from the base in Lymington, so you don’t have to get lost trying to figure out where you’re going!
Once you’re in Hampshire, I would recommend hiring some bikes, there are various places along the way where you can do this; alternatively bring your own and drag them behind you; but I think the hiring might be easier. Cycling through the forest is one of the best ways for you to experience how beautiful it is, it’s also quiet enough that you might not scare away animals and see some of the wild New Forest ponies and deer that the area boasts.
The city of Southampton also isn’t very far away, so if the wilderness gets too much for you, it’s easy enough for you to go and have some fun in a city; maybe get some shopping done or just warm up a bit in a restaurant or cafe. Either way, the city is bound to keep you entertained.
This is a really good opportunity for you to explore a beautiful part of the UK but have fun whilst doing it. Take the children, take some friends, it doesn’t matter, the experience is definitely worthwhile and will be one that lasts for a long time.
