The market town of Ringwood lies near the western edge of the New Forest, in the county of Hampshire. Nestled on the banks of the River Avon with far-reaching views across the surrounding countryside, it is popular among visitors to the region. The south coast is a short drive away, with sandy beaches and the classic resort of Bournemouth to explore. Within walking distance of your Ringwood holiday cottage, the streets in the historic town centre are lined with beautiful Georgian and Victorian buildings. Not to be missed on self-catering holidays in Ringwood, the Wednesday morning market has been held since the Middle Ages, and remains packed with stalls selling fresh, local produce. There are a number of cosy old pubs in the town, many of which serve ales from Ringwood Brewery.
