The perfect bolthole for a relaxing break, this cottage with wood burner occupies a rural position overlooking fields, has additional space for children and easy access to Beaulieu and Bucklers Hard

Retreat to this exquisite cottage between Beaulieu and Bucklers Hard at the heart of the New Forest. Sleeping two adults, but with potential extra space for children, this pretty property looks out over open fields and is in a great location for both river and forest activities. Also welcoming one four-legged friend, it is ideal for anyone keen to embark on long walks through the surroundings.

Follow a small path up to this delightful reverse-level holiday home, which is set in the grounds of the owners’ property but enjoys its privacy. Find yourself in the inviting open-plan kitchen/diner, complete with a Nespresso coffee machine for leisurely mornings and a farmhouse table for jolly meals. Wander on through to the beautiful main bedroom, which has a super-king-size bed. The family bathroom is on this floor too. Climb the stairs up to the splendid, very spacious, lounge, with its scenic views and vaulted ceiling. Light the wood burner and unwind in front of the Smart TV. Find a sofa bed and an additional cabin with a porthole in here, which children will adore. Step out onto the balcony on warm days to absorb the rural vistas. There is also a handy utility area at this level, which contains the washing machine. Dine out in the garden on sunny days. You’ll also find parking for two cars at the cottage.

Take a water cruise or go kayaking on the Beaulieu River during your stay. Experience the shipbuilding history of Bucklers Hard as you pass. Drive or walk 2.5 miles to the Beaulieu estate to visit Beaulieu Abbey, the National Motor Museum and Palace House. Head 8 miles to Lymington to potter in the shops, book a table in a restaurant and perhaps head over to the Isle of Wight on the ferry.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

The cottage was ideal for us staying with our three year old, with the bedroom, bathroom and kitchen downstairs and a lovely lounge upstairs.

We chose Purnel Cottage because of its location close to the main areas of interest locally. The cottage provides a peaceful haven at the end of each day.

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.
