The perfect choice for a family or friends getaway with a private hot tub, the stylish property has beautiful views and is ideal for spending your days walking, cycling or simply soaking in the hot tub.

Experience the New Forest in all its glory and stay in this charming bijou retreat on the cusp of Godshill, a peaceful spot surrounded by rugged heathland and roaming ponies. Boasting a generous welcome pack, an all-weather hot tub and all the home comforts you could wish for, the property sleeps four along with two canine companions. You’ll soon be dividing your days between exciting adventures and relaxing evenings and, on the nights you don’t feel like cooking, the nearby pub is a 0.5-mile walk away.

Bright, spacious and contemporary, your homely abode is set adjacent to the owners’ property, yet you’ll be guaranteed privacy. Step inside and unwind with a glass of wine, rustling up hearty meals in the kitchen/diner or perching at the breakfast table for a light snack. There’s an additional table in the lounge for board games and extravagant feasts, and the comfy sofas are a cosy spot for watching family films. Refresh yourself in the bathroom then choose from two pretty bedrooms, a welcome sight after a busy day. Outside, the covered hot tub, BBQ and garden furniture are a treat on balmy summer afternoons. Why not pop open the bubbly and enjoy a glass whilst stargazing at night?

Walk and cycle along the various trails leading from your doorstep, venturing across the wilderness of the stunning national park with a picnic in tow. If adrenaline-fuelled excursions fill you with anticipation, there’s an activity centre within 4 miles offering abseiling, archery and bushcraft, or visit the exciting aqua park also 4 miles away. For really young guests, Peppa Pig World is within 12.5 miles, or wander through beautiful Beaulieu and visit the Motor Museum 20.5 miles away.

The nearest gastro-pub is about a half a mile walk down the road, and you'll pass horses, donkeys and the occasional deer on the way! There are lovely walksRead more in both directions from the cottage. Fordingbridge is 10 mins away which has a large co-op for your essentials. Will definitely book again! Hide

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.
