The Great British Autumn – and how to enjoy it

The Great British Autumn – and how to enjoy it

After one of the most beautiful summers in recent years the New Forest is now shaping up for the perfect autumn! Plenty of sunshine has kept the land and the sea warm, so what better time to take advantage of some special offers to see this beautiful part of the world at its best?

The award-winning Shorefield Holidays is offering self-catering breaks in October for three or four nights starting at just £129. What’s more, they’re running a Late Summer Sale on all camping and touring holidays, from now until October 31 so even more people can take advantage of this beautiful season.

Looking ahead to half-term there’s still plenty of New Forest fun to be had, both from the beautiful countryside and coast, and a host of world-class attractions to enjoy. Take the tinies to Peppa Pig world at Paultons Park, where there are plenty of thrills – including new attraction The Lost Kingdom – for the older ones.

Or spend the day at the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu. With more than 200 vehicles to gaze at, as well as the historic Palace House, you’ll find more than enough to do.

Foodies will welcome the chance to taste every good thing the forest has to offer at the first Food & Drink Festival, which takes place at various locations throughout the area, from October 31 to November 6.

And remember, you can also take advantage of all the fantastic facilities and entertainment at both Shorefield Country Park and Oakdene Forest Park, which are included in the price of your holiday.

As well as all the facilities you’d expect from the multi-award-winning sites, including park-wide guest Wi-Fi, supermarket and launderette, you can swim in the heated indoor pool, or commit to get fit in the modern gym. At Shorefield there’s a sauna, steam room and spa as well as an all-weather, floodlit tennis court, astro-turf football pitch and crazy golf for those big family challenges! And Oakdene has the superb GoActive activities.

Book a stay over the weekend of Friday, October 28 and prepare to be spooked by a fantastic Halloween weekend which includes some special, themed entertainment.

And, if you quote code ‘HAL10’ at the checkout you can save an extra 10 per cent on all Shorefield October half-term breaks and escapes in self-catering properties – even those already discounted!

All of Shorefield’s fantastic touring and camping pitches always offer great value for money, but during September this can be as low as £13 per night. Use Discount Code ‘TOUR10’ when booking to get the additional 10 per cent* off any booking during between now and October 31.
