White Hart Holiday Homes - Caravans at Bashley Park


Now is the time to book an autumn holiday. The New Forest is one of the most popular venues during September, October and November. The Forest is preparing for winter. The leaves start to turn into the most beautiful shades of yellow, orange, russet and red. On the open Forest the brackens and grasses turn into a lovely burnt rich brown. The squirrels start to collect their winter hoard of acorns. At this time the deer start to spread their herds deep into the forest to feed upon the rich bounty of acorns. The New Forest Commoners allow their pigs to graze in the Forest to collect the surplus acorns. The New Forest ponies are searching for those remaining tufts of green grass, their winter coats starting to grow. The evenings have a gentle crisp clean air, the mist lay over the still warm ground. The mornings are bright, crisp and slightly chill with the beams of sunshine prizing themselves between the tall trees through the gentle blanket of early morning mist.

Autumn is a special time to make calm after the busy summer months, a time to recollect, slow down and prepare for the long dark winter months which lay ahead.

What better time than to visit the New Forest.

The springtime bluebells and daffodils are now fading, making way for the colourful summer flowers. All over the New Forest the brightly coloured azaelas add a splash of colour. The Forest is now covered is a fresh green canopy of new leaves. The ponies have shed their winter coats. The deer have emerged from their hiding places onto the open fields to graze in the summer sunshine. The prickly gorse is now in full flower showing its vibrant yellow flowers adding that first summer colour to the open plains of the Forest. The bird song rings through the Forest glades. The days growing longer and warmer as the summer sunshine reaches out its comforting rays.

Horse riders, cyclists, hikers and tourists flood into this beautiful New Forest National Park far away from the work, the hustle and bustle of town life to enjoy the fresh air and quiet countryside.

All along this stretch of coastline there is a buzz of activity as people flock to the beaches to enjoy the seaside activities. The children laughing and playing on the beach with bucket and spade building sand castles and paddling in the sea. Mum and Dad on their deck chairs soaking up the lovely sunshine. The buzz of the motor boat pulling the water ski, the white sails of the yatchs billowing in the wind, the paragliders taking advantage of the thermals along the cliff tops. All things which make summer holidays in the New Forest so memorable.

If you are still planning a summer holiday in the New Forest we still have some late deals to June and July. There also a few vacancies left for the school summer holiday. Please see our late deals/special offers page.

At last we have emerged from a dreadfully cold and dismal winter. The sun is shining and the sky is blue. The trees of the Forest display lovely fresh shades of the newly emerged leaves. The delicate bluebells peep from beneath a layer of crispy brown leaves which carpet the forest.

The holiday season is fast approaching. Bashley Park is coming to life again with a rush of people coming for the Whitsun Bank Holiday weekend and week beyond. We will have a few vacancies with special offers for this popular holiday.
