The house was very comfortable and beautifully decorated. It was very well equipped and had some lovely treats left by the owners for our arrival. The cottage is in the perfect position being right in the centre of the little town of Fordingbridge and right on the edge of the New Forest.

Fordingbridge is a good base for looking around Hampshire and Wiltshire. The property was perfect for the local shops in the village with at least 5 restaurants. The owner had provided some food provisions which are all necessary when you first arrive and we were grateful for this. The bed was comfortable as was the sofa and chair in the living rooRead morem. There is a toilet downstairs as well as upstairs and a lovely garden to sit out in. The kitchen had all the necessary equipment for cooking. Hide

Well equiped comfortable cottage very close to Fordingbridge town centre. Quiet area. Easy access to other parts of the New Forest by road. Ringwood Brewery and shop are only a 15min drive away. Enjoyed breakfast at Bridges cafe several times as well as drinks in The Crown and The Ship pubs. Owners were easy to contact but no issues.

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.
