An enchanting riverside property nestled amidst the beauty of the surrounding countryside of the New Forest National Park. A former yachtsman’s cabin, this property is brimming with character and style.
This unique waterside cottage stands on stilts on the bank of the river, in the woodlands of the New Forest National Park, with many miles of open forest to explore right on the doorstep. Outdoor enthusiasts will adore the activities on offer in the local area from kayaking to canoeing, walking and cycling, and there are interesting attractions in the area to spend a day or two exploring. Exbury gardens is only a 15 minute drive from the property and The Bucklers Hard Story and Maritime Museum are all close by, or jump on the Isle of Wight ferry at Lymington for a fantastic day out.
Charming views of the countryside, river, and beyond welcome you as you arrive for a romantic break, honeymoon, or minimoon and a delicious breakfast welcome pack is gifted on arrival. The bright and spacious open plan living area has floor to ceiling glazed windows and sliding doors which let the natural light stream in and open up to the large deck, perfect for a spot of stargazing or alfresco dining. The stylish lounge has tranquil mood lighting, a flame effect fire, and all the mod cons you may require, as well as a dining table looking out across the trees which creates the perfect proposal setting. Equipped with all the essentials, the kitchen boasts panoramic views over the river and a relaxed breakfast bar for enjoying morning coffee, and even a pair of binoculars for keen bird watchers. When it’s time to settle down for the night, the double bed with memory foam mattress and topper provides a peaceful night’s sleep and you’ll find dressing gowns and complimentary slippers in the wardrobe. The modern bathroom has a bath with power shower over, heated towel rail and sink. There is a separate WC.
On the ground level is a utility room and secure storage area for bikes. Here you’ll find utility essentials from a washing machine to dryer, pegs and an ironing board as well as spare wellies, umbrellas, and an outside tap for washing muddy boots and bikes down. Heading outside of the property there are unfenced grounds left in their natural state to encourage wildlife and guests are welcome to explore. With plenty of parking at the property, there is also a small jetty available to hire and river mooring, and visiting yachts are welcome by arrangement. There are opportunities for fishing from moored vessels, again with prior arrangement before your visit.
