This charming cottage is situated within the village of Burley. The open forest is just a short walk away, and a choice of local tearooms and pubs on the door step.

Located close to the centre of the pretty village of Burley, there’s much to see and do within walking distance of the cottage. Burley has an interesting past, with stories of smugglers, highwaymen and even witches, which can be seen at the 17th century Queen’s Head Pub and the Coven of Witches shop. The New Forest is also famous for its ponies, and in Burley you can enjoy a gentle wagon ride, taking you past the sights of the village as well as the surrounding countryside. Walkers and cyclists will also love the many trails that take you from Burley to several other great places in the New Forest.

Once you’ve entered the property into the welcoming entrance hallway, step into the lounge, the heart of the home and an ideal place to relax. With a sofa, wood-burner and a Smart TV with DVD and Blu-ray, it’s perfect for putting your feet up after a day of exploring the area. From here you can also access the kitchen/diner. The kitchen is equipped to a high standard, featuring Smeg appliances, and features a range of facilities including an electric range oven and gas hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and microwave. In the dining area, you’ll find a dining table which easily seats four, as well as a TV. Double doors also open up from the dining area out onto the patio and garden, making this a lovely place to not only enjoy a meal but also to simply relax and socialise. A washer/dryer can also be found just off the hallway in the boot room, along with a sink and a WC; this area is ideal for storing muddy boots and wet weather gear. Heading upstairs, there are two bedrooms, which both have their own TV. The first is the master bedroom, with a Queen-size zip-and-link bed (which can be made into twin beds on request), as well as an en-suite bathroom, with a bath, shower and WC. The second bedroom is equally as luxurious, with a super-king-size zip-and-link bed (which can be made into twin beds as well) and an en-suite shower room with a shower and WC.

This cottage enjoys gardens both to the front and to the rear of the property, offering more choice when it comes to where to relax in the sun. Both gardens have a patio with garden furniture, while to the rear of the property there is also a BBQ and a lawn area. Off-road parking is available for one car, while further parking may also be available on the road.

Dogs fees are charged per dog at £20.00 for up to 7 nights, £40.00 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20.00 for every week or part week thereafter.

This cottage was perfect for our group of three people. We loved the quiet yet central location of the cottage. Bedrooms and en suites were great and there was plenty of bedroom storage. The boot room/utility room proved useful during our damp stay but we still managed to get out and about. We made good use of the wood burner in the comfy lounge. WRead moreell equipped kitchen.

Location

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.
