Enjoy a romantic break in this converted former coach house where you can relax in the private hot tub or spend your days exploring the surrounding areas.

This delightful cottage is the perfect base for those who love being outdoors, as you’ll be located on the edge of the New Forest National Park with 150 square miles of heathland and woodland to explore. In contrast, you’ll also be just 5 miles from the coast, where you’ll find sandy beaches, clifftop paths and spectacular nature reserves. The pretty market town of Ringwood (4.5 miles) is also well worth a wander, with its quaint shops and bustling markets.

The open-plan former coach house is bright and airy and is decorated in a contemporary style, with flashes of yellow adding personality and charm. After a long walk, unwind on the comfy sofa, looking out through the double doors that lead to the terrace. The chic kitchen area has everything you need to rustle up a tasty meal for two, which you can enjoy together at the dining table or outside on the enclosed terrace. After a romantic evening in the hot tub, retire to the pretty double bedroom, which is located on a mezzanine level overlooking the lounge area. Just be aware that there is restricted head height in this room.

Mudeford Sandbank Beach is an excellent choice if you fancy a day at the seaside. The dog-friendly beach offers fabulous views of the Isle of Wight and has over 300 colourful beach huts to admire. Hop on the pedestrian ferry at Mudeford Quay (6.5 miles) to access the beach. If you’re looking for peace and tranquillity, take a stroll at Hengistbury Head (8.5 miles). This Site of Special Scientific Interest is home to over 300 species of birds and boasts magnificent views of the harbour. A relaxing afternoon can be spent in the unspoilt market town of Ringwood. Potter around the open-air market before enjoying a relaxing riverside stroll.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

This is perfect location for the New Forest and coastal areas. The owners are a delight. An outstanding place to stay with a dog. The owners have thought of everything even down to a shower for the dog and a place to dry your walking boots. We will definitely be recommending this place to family and friends.

Just spent a great week here and loved it. The cottage is very well equipped and nothing was missing or broken. For 2 of us to get away and have a break it was idyllic. Very quiet spot within walking distance of the pub and very well situated for Christchurch, Bournemouth and Poole.

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.
