Perfect country bolthole for holidays and weekend breaks
About this Gorley Holiday Cottage: A stylish and comfortable holiday bolthole for two in the New Forest. This self catering holiday accommodation is a single storey attached cottage forming part of a larger barn conversion, benefiting from its own patio garden and paddock views. The relaxing interior is surprisingly light and bright with character features of exposed beams and brickwork, beautifully presented with every creature comfort for a rejuvenating break away. Wood burning fire for winter, sunny garden for summer afternoons. Ponies, foals, donkeys and cattle outside in the lane, making their daily foraging trips along the hedgerows.
