Enjoying a delightful position on the western edge of the New Forest National Park, the property offers intimate country-style accommodation with various activities right on the doorstep, including trout fishing, cycling and walking.

Positioned within easy reach of some of the New Forest’s most charming villages and towns, the property offers guests an authentic rural accommodation.

Alternatively, guests can pick up a rod and head to the nearby trout fishery for a spot of angling before heading to the local pub, which is just a short stroll from the property for a well earned sit down. If the quiet of the countryside becomes too much, the bustling town of Salisbury is within easy reach and has a stunning cathedral as well as various shops, cafés and bars.

The charm of this property is evident the moment guests step through the front door; exposed wood beams and brickwork provide a wonderful sense of character. A corner sofa in the open-plan lounge diner provides a great spot for relaxing and watching a DVD in front of the woodburner after a day spent cycling through the New Forest. The kitchen is well equipped with all the essentials and there is an intimate dining table and chairs that’s perfect for a romantic dinner for two.

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.
