With so much going on in Hampshire this June, those who have already booked into one of the countryside holiday cottages in the region have plenty to look forward to. From the chance to enjoy a Bat Walk to a unique vintage fair, there’s sure to be something to appeal to all members of the family during your cottage break.
Lou Lou’s Vintage Fair
An event which is sure to appeal to the fashion conscious among us, Lou Lou’s Vintage Fair was started in 2008 and invites a host of vintage traders to showcase the very best in fashion and lifestyle from the 1920s up until the 1990s. With live music performances, a vintage tea party and even a vintage hair salon, it’s no surprise that it’s already won the accolade of Best Vintage Fair in the UK. It will feature at Southampton’s Guildhall on 14 June, visiting as part of a 42 stop tour across the country. Tickets cost £12 and are available to purchase on the door.
Bat Walk at Mottisfont
Despite bats being widespread across the country, they are often some of the most elusive of creatures thanks to their nocturnal habits. However, Mottisfont house is giving the perfect opportunity to admire these animals through a Bat Walk. Taking place at the National Trust property near Romsey on 11 June, groups will be taken around the estate at dusk and will have the opportunity to learn more about the protected species they have on the grounds. For more information, visit the Mottisfont house website.
Rise of the Dinosaurs at Marwell Zoo
Opening to great acclaim at the end of May, Rise of the Dinosaurs allows visitors to Marwell Zoo to learn more about the biggest animals to roam the earth. While staying in a holiday cottage in Hampshire, visitors can meet the likes of the Tyrannosaurus Rex, Triceratops, the flying Quetzalcoatlus and more, which have been brought to life using animatronics. Available to enjoy at the zoo throughout June, those interested are being urged to book their tickets in advance to avoid disappointment.
