A rural idyll situated in a smallholding, this enchanting log cabin is nestled amidst five acres of land in which alpacas roam freely. The property is within easy reach of local villages and towns, making it a great choice for those wanting to explore the New Forest.

A rural property set within five acres of land, this log cabin is an enchanting accommodation for those who want an idyllic rural retreat. The nearby village of West Wellow is just a short drive from the property and offers various local amenities. The Abbey town of Romsey is close by, and guests can enjoy a lovely afternoon meandering its period streets and browsing the independent shops. Guests can take a picnic down to the river and spend the day spotting the wildlife, including kingfishers and deer, or head to the neighbouring fish ponds for a spot of fishing. Of course there is always Peppa Pig World and Paultons park for those rainy days.

The log cabin embraces open-plan living with a delightful lounge diner. The exposed wood walls and ceilings add to the warmth and character of this property, and a woodburner provides the perfect accompaniment for evenings relaxing in front of the TV. A dining table provides an excellent space for entertaining and there is a well-equipped kitchen for rustling up a meal for hungry guests after a day spent outdoors. On balmy evenings, guests can throw back the double doors and enjoy a spot of al fresco dining.

There are three spacious bedrooms, which all enjoy the ambience created by the wooden surrounds. The main good size bedroom contains a double bed and has an en-suite. The second bedroom consists of two single beds and offer lovely views through the treetops. A bathroom and a cosy single bedroom with vistas across the paddocks, completes this charming property, which is perfect for families and groups.

The cabin was superb with plenty of space, the bedrooms were very good, both the ensuite and the main bathroom were large. The cabin was very warm without heating. The veranda was superb for dining or just sitting. All together a great package with enough outdoor space for an army of children.

A wonderful relaxing escape for the whole family. Highlights were a trip to Lymington, The New Forest Wildlife Park and of course all the numerous encounters with the friendly animals on site from feeding the lambs to brushing Marmalade(the fluffy tom cat)! Quiet the most idyllic place we have ever stayed- we will be back!!

Location

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.
