A stylish cottage located in the heart of the New Forest, a great base for the family to explore the nearby attractions.

This beautifully restored cottage, deep in the New Forest National Park, sleeps six guests, making it perfect for a large family holiday or getaway with friends. The property is located in the peaceful village of Sway yet is within easy reach of many of the New Forest’s highlights. Just 10 miles away you’ll find the picturesque village of Beaulieu; the sandy beaches of the south coast are within easy reach, and you’ll also be just 14.5 miles from the popular family attraction of Poultons Park.

The characterful cottage offers a home-away-from-home feel, with thoughtful touches to make your holiday as comfortable as possible. The property is decorated in neutral tones with contemporary accessories to create a calm and stylish environment. There are two places to unwind at the end of a busy day: a spacious lounge/diner and a snug, which is ideal for kids who want a little bit of independence. All three bedrooms boast delightful views out over the garden. A door from the light and bright kitchen leads to the patio, which is covered with a pretty pergola. To the rear of the cottage there is a large lawn, which is perfect for children to play on.

The quaint village of Sway has some delightful independent eateries and traditional pubs. From here it’s easy to hop on a train to Bournemouth or Southampton (approximately 25 minutes). You’ll find plenty to see and do in Beaulieu. The pretty village houses the National Motor Museum in the impressive grounds of Palace House. From here you can take a 2-mile riverside stroll to the historic hamlet of Buckler’s Hard. The secluded sands of Highcliffe Beach are just 6.5 miles away and here you can explore the elegant Grade I listed mansion, once inhabited by Mr Selfridge.

Pretty, well equipped cottage with lovely garden. Very small rooms and uneven sloping floors. Base of one double bed is 6 higher than the head on sloping floor. Had to put books under legs to even it up. Small dangerous staircase. Several steps indoors. Beautiful location.

Location

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

If you’re after a holiday destination which has natural wonders and British tradition in abundance, look no further than the New Forest – a region where beautiful heathland, forest trails and stunning coastline surround quaint villages and market towns.

The National Park is found on England’s south coast, covering the south west of Hampshire but extending into Wiltshire and Dorset. It’s known for its picturesque footpaths and cycle trails, from which you can witness the spectacular sights of deer, ponies and cattle roaming free throughout the ancient woodland.

The villages of Lyndhurst, Brockenhurst and Buckler’s Hard have plenty of traditional, cosy pubs in which you can enjoy some locally-brewed cider or beer. Or, if you wanted something a little livelier, Hythe, Lymington and New Milton run fantastic weekly markets, while the lively city of Southampton is a drive away.

If you prefer coast over country, a visit to the shoreline is a must. Highlights include the Barton-on-Sea cliffs, Lymington Quay, and the Beaulieu River, where adventurous activities including canoeing await. There are plenty of other great things to do, too, with the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu, Breamore House and Museum near Fordingbridge, and Exbury Gardens all found around the region.
