The timing for peak autumn colours is not exact. It depends on the weather. But, as a passionate watcher of autumn I have noticed that the best of the colour tends to be the first two weeks of November in the New Forest National Park.

The magnificent ancient oaks (80% of Europe’s ancient oaks are within 10 miles of the Cottage lodge’s front door), beeches, yews, produce the most beautiful colours. They start to turn a during October. But, they are joined, in November, by the trees from across the globe that have found their way into the forest via a range of different routes. Some were planted by the Victorians, who brought them back from their overseas adventures. Some have found their way in as memories of loved ones who had a favourite spot and a favourite tree. Others have sneaked in and others have been carefully planted by the forestry commission.

Wherever their origin, this beautiful collection of trees, ferns and bushes work together to make the New Forest National Park look magnificent in autumn.

The beauty of coming to visit in November is that there are lots of options of things to do. You can go exploring to find pigs (let out for Pannage to eat the acorns in the autumn). You may spot a stag with its amazing antlers.  You could go spotting multi-coloured mushrooms. Just take pictures of them. They are very useful part of the forest ecology. Ponies are huddled up for winter in their thick coats. There are lots of beautiful walks and cycle rides off road. Cosy Pubs with roaring log fires. If it rains you can head to beautiful Winchester and do your Christmas shopping. Just 30 minutes on the train or by car.

With so much to do it is a great time of year to visit. Hope we have the pleasure of welcoming you to the Cottage Lodge hotel for a great bargain.
