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 is a truly unique waterside holiday cottage that's ideal for a honeymoon, minimoon or romantic escape. Standing on stilts on the bank of the river and tucked away in the ancient woodlands of the New Forest National Park, this property was once a yachtsman’s cabin, now a stylish and beautifully presented self-catering retreat with scenery straight out of The Wind in the Willows.

Holidays at this property are all about relaxing. It’s an all year destination, where the charm of the location changes with each season. In the spring and summer wake up to a cheerful dawn chorus, a thousand of shades of green and dine al fresco in the treetops. The autumn brings spectacular displays of colour, darting pheasants and deer in the grounds, with the low sun streaming through the living room. The winter months host our favourite views with the morning mists across the river and the shimmering light on the water at sunset.

On the doorstep are miles of open forest to explore. You can hire kayaks and paddle down river to the Solent or walk or cycle along the Solent Way to the old ship-building village of Buckler’s Hard, watching the landscape change from woodland to tidal river edge grassland to salt marsh. Or simply relax on the wraparound deck and take in the stunning views of the tidal Beaulieu River, a haven for spotting wildlife such as curlew, treecreepers and deer.

The entrance to this spectacular property is via a flight of external stairs that lead onto the gorgeous decking area that’s perfect for relaxing and drinking in the breathtaking scenery. There is a fully equipped kitchen with a dining area for entertaining that leads through to the stunning open plan living space with high vaulted ceilings and large glass doors that embrace the outdoors. A flame effect fire provides a central feature for those cosy nights in, or guests can simply open the doors and enjoy the birdsong from the comfort of the sofa.

The property has a cosy bedroom with a double bed and memory foam mattress and topper. Guests can enjoy peaceful nights in the 600 thread-count cotton sheets, before heading outside to the decking for breakfast in the fresh country air. There is a bathroom with a shower over bath, granite top vanity unit and separate WC.

On the ground floor there is a utility room with a washing machine and separate dryer, as well as plenty of storage for those muddy boots and bicycles.

This cottage is in a beautiful location overlooking the river, perfect for a morning cup of tea watching the birds. It is clean, well-designed, stylish and has a lovely feel to it. Great walks nearby and a short hop to Beaulieu. Not far from the Pig restaurant and Limewood for great food and a fabulous spa. Thoroughly enjoyed our weekend.

A return visit for us and another fabulous time in the Hide. Breakfast at sunrise watching the wildlife was a particular highlight. I suspect we will be back again next year!

The cottage was in a fantastic location on the bank of the river which made it very peaceful with great views when having breakfast watching the different birds. The bed was extremely comfortable and the living area was lovely to sit and listen to music with a glass of wine or two in the evening. The cottage was really lovely in every way.

If you like to stay somewhere a little different this cottage is a must. Good local places to visit. The owner was very helpful and the 'goodies' left for us were much appreciated.

Reviewed by Kim, 20th February 2017

The Hide was a wonderful place to spend a relaxing few days. The property is light and airy and thoughtfully equipped. Ling seems to have thought of everything and adds a few lovely treats to make visitors feel very welcome. The position of the property beneath the trees and just a few metres from the river is totally beguiling, almost like a luxurRead morey tree house for grown ups. Hide
