Hampshire's rich historical and cultural heritage make it a fascinating county to explore. It also boasts some wonderful countryside - the Test, Itchen and Meon valleys, the South Downs National Park and the unique landscape of the New Forest. Winchester, its county town, has a magnificent cathedral.
Two of England's largest ports, Portsmouth and Southampton, lie on its coast. Hideaways' holiday cottages in the New Forest and across Hampshire include Visit England 4 and 5 star luxury accommodation, a marvellous base to escape to for a short break or a longer family holiday in the New Forest and beyond.
