The location of the property was perfect as a base from which to visit the beauty that is the New Forest. The house itself was fine with plenty of room as there was just the two of us!! When werent out and about, we spent a lot of time in the conservatory which was lovely and bright as the front tv room was dark and had a musty smell. The bedrooms Read morewere well furnished and the beds were comfortable. The shower cubicles in both the en-suite and bathroom were small - not easy to turn around in. Hide

All three generations of my family enjoyed their holiday in this spacious well equipped home. The garden provided a secure space for the children and dog to let off steam and explore.

Lovely house. Spacious with a great conservatory which we used instead of the lounge. Right on edge of Forest so lots of ponies in the local area. We were four generations from 16 months to 88 years old and great for everyone.

A beautiful spacious well equipped cottage in the New Forest, with lovely walks on your doorstep. Wild ponies and donkeys roam freely and are particularly fond of gathering outside the cottage's front gate. Would highly recommend.

We enjoyed a 3 generation family Christmas at the cottage. It suited well a large party and the alternative options of using the cosy lounge or the conservatory were useful, in addition to the large dining table. Tanya was a very helpful hostess with information before we arrived and then when we lost our keys during our stay. There are often ponieRead mores or donkeys outside the gate who are friendly. It is right behind the pub, no more than 25 metres away: don't go too far down the adjacent lane. Hide

Excellent, spacious house, well equipped with a large secluded garden. It is behind a pub with good food and beer and a large childs' play area. The location would be better described as behind the pub rather than 100m down the lane.

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.
