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. Head out on a bike ride across the National Park, or follow one of the extensive trails across the Forest on foot. 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.

There is a spacious bedroom, which contains a king-size bed and an en-suite bathroom with a shower over bath and exposed wood beams that add to the country chic of the room. Double doors lead from the lounge area out to a delightful garden and patio area with seating and a BBQ for alfresco dining. Guests can sit in a deck chair and unwind to the gentle sounds of the surrounding wildlife.

We have stayed at Jenny Wrens for the 3rd time in 3 years. It is like home from home for us by now. The location is just perfect for walks through the New Forest and you do not even need to go anywhere by car. Just head up Buddle Hill for example and you can reach the Forst Arms walking through beautiful scenery. Walk to Rockford Common and anotherRead more walk will lead you to The Red Shoot. All right at your doorstep. The cottage is perfect for relaxing, it is beautifully furnished & decorated. Hide

From beginning to end our stay at Jenny Wrens was brilliant. The welcome pack was just wonderful plus all the complimentary coffees, jams, marmalades etc. Spotlessly clean, small garden area very private and the BBQ was brilliant, we used it three times. Very handy for he local pubs nearby, one within walking distance others just a short car ride. Read moreLocation brilliant for our bike rides from Jenny Wrens and also short drive to he coast. Can't fault it. Will definitely be staying there again! Hide
