Welcome to Rushcroft Farm

Holiday cottages, Touring and Camping in the beautiful New Forest National Park

We have three modern, bright, comfortable self-catering cottages (open all year) giving you the opportunity to relax in luxury whilst enjoying the natural beauty of a farm setting.  We are in a convenient location to explore the surrounding National Park area with great local amenities on your doorstep; Rushcroft Lodge sleeps 2-3 and the other two barn conversions sleep 4. The light, space, airiness and decor of each, and their individual little private gardens are enchanting and welcoming. 

Rushcroft also provides outstanding accommodation for horses in vast pastures with automatic water provided, and grass, even in the hottest temperatures, negating the need to feed hay. The whole atmosphere is extremely calm, laissez-faire and relaxed.  There is also a beautiful outside menage with an assortment of jumps that you can use at any time.

The campsite (open 23rd May to 4th September), which is separate from the cottages, gently sloping, calm and peaceful with the emphasis on natural camping.  Visitors are invited to get away from all the clutter of modern life and experience nature and the great out doors in a convenient and beautiful location.

Altogether the Farm covers about twenty acres, hidden away in a little corner of the New Forest, minutes from some of the best riding, walking and cycling that the Forest has to offer.   Also only a few minutes walk from Sway village with pubs, cafe, shops and a rail way station, great if you are looking for a car free break.

You can be assured of attention to detail and a personal approach during your stay.

Lymington, with its beautiful marina and wealth of interesting shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants, is only 15 minutes away from Sway.  You can also catch the regular ferry to the sunny Isle of Wight from there.  Beaulieu, with its fantastic Motor Museum and Palace, is 20 minutes drive away through the peaceful New Forest National Park with free roaming ponies and stunning wild life to spot along the way.

From Sway you can hop on a train and visit the long sandy beaches, pier, shops and night life of Bournemouth and Poole in one direction or Brockenhurst and Southampton in the other. Horses are also welcome at Rushcroft Farm.

Please telephone Lynn on 07850 258790 for further details.

I am in awe of what Lynn has achieved single-handedly over the past ten years. She is SuperWoman - a really able, capable, charming, friendly, talented person of extraordinary energy and courage. I run a luxury B&B comprising two rooms in remotest Dartmoor, and I find that hard enough to run on my own, juggling children and horses. Over the past decade, Lynn, whom I'd never met before, has created a wonderful New Forest oasis for so many to enjoy.

Her website does not do justice to the quality of the Rushcroft experience, nor does it make it clear what to expect. 

There are three self-catering cottages; Rushcroft Lodge (where my daughter and I stayed) sleeps 2-3 in spacious luxury; and the other two sleep 4. All offer exceptional value for money. Lynn has a wonderful eye, and the light, space, airiness and decor of each, and their individual little gardens are absolutely first class. She has thought of every detail. There is also a beautiful colourful Gypsy Caravan in the most romantic secluded corner of one of the meadows.

Rushcroft, unusually, provides outstanding accommodation for up to four horses, in large, comfortable, clean and tidy, vast pastures with automatic water provided, and grass, even in the hottest temperatures, negating the need to poo-pick or feed hay. The whole atmosphere is extremely calm, laissez-faire and relaxed, unlike too many equine establishments. There is also a beautiful outside menage with an assortment of jumps that you can use at any time, as Lynn only keeps two horses.

The campsite, which is separate from the cottages, is calm and peaceful.

Altogether the Farm covers about twenty acres, hidden away in a little corner of the New Forest, minutes from some of the best riding, walking and cycling that the Forest has to offer. 

I feel any negative comments on this website say more about the reviewer than anything else. Perhaps these people would have been happier to find themselves in a big public noisy mass-market campsite, rather than the one-off personal, private seclusion for discerning holiday makers offered by Lynn and her team at Rushcroft.
