For those that can swing a few days away from the office, or have a clear weekend on the horizon, New Forest Living stand by rates can provide a break away exploring the leafy byways with the added bonus of saving up to 10% on the rental price, an autumn jaunt to the New Forest seems very appealing.

Recognising that people want the flexibility of booking a late break as and when,
property director Jude Dalton said; “The standby page on our New Forest Living website has been enormously popular with last minute bookers. We often hold the dates for 24 hours to allow friends and family to organise time off together ”.

Self catering cottages are no longer the poor relation of the hospitality industry and it can often be the most cost effective option for a UK break. Compared to three hotel rooms, a cottage that accommodates seven and costs £775 for a three night long weekend, makes an average of only £37 per person per night. Similarly, a bolt hole just for two can provide privacy and much needed ‘us time’.

‘Everybody loves a discount’ , says Jude, ‘but its more about being able to pin point late availability quickly with details such as where the nearest bike hire,riding stables or good restaurant can be found,so everything can be put in place in lunch hour or less’.

The standby offers usually feature breaks that start within a four week time frame. The accommodation size varies between one and five bed roomed holiday cottages.
