This stylish cabin is nestled in a tranquil location with views across the Beaulieu River. It's located in an idea position to enjoy outdoor pursuits in the New Forest.

Situated on Beaulieu River, this property is an enchanting retreat set in the heart of the New Forest. Guests can hire a kayak and head down the river, or enjoy a gentle stroll to the picturesque village of Beaulieu and its charming shops. The village of Buckler’s Hard is in the opposite direction, and guests can enjoy an afternoon at the village’s Yachtsman pub. A short drive takes guests to the vibrant coastal town of Lymington with its various bars, cafes and a Georgian high street.

Entrance to the property is through an entrance hall and up a spiral staircase to a spacious open-plan living area. The property embraces inverted living to make the most of the spectacular views. Light streams in through the floor to ceiling windows and double doors which give the room a wonderful sense of space. The lounge area is a cosy spot for curling up and watching a DVD in front of the woodburner. The kitchen is well equipped with granite worktops and a washing machine and dryer for those wet clothes after a day spent out on the river. There is a bathroom on this floor and a lovely dining area, or guests can step through the double doors onto a decked veranda which is perfect for eating outdoors.

Back on the ground floor there are two lovely double bedrooms. The main bedroom has two sets of double doors, which lead out to a decked veranda and provides a delightful view of the surrounding countryside.

If you are looking for solitude in wooded surroundings this is the place for you.

This cottage is in a great position in the forest close to the Beaulieu River. There are other properties nearby, but the many trees give a high degree of privacy. Walk to the end of the track and you join a shingle track which leads to Beaulieu in one direction and Bucklers Hard in the other. A good place to "get away".

This accommodation is in a fabulous setting in the forest, surrounded by trees with lots of birds and is very quiet.It is reasonably well equipped. Unfortunately it was not clean, we found lots of hair all over floors and our towels despite it being described as pet free, dust everywhere, cobwebs etc. the whole place looked like it needed a really Read moredeep clean.It took 3 days for our towels to be replaced.Poor value for money.

Stunning! What an amazing location, so peaceful and quiet yet only a few miles from the bigger villages. And the best thing - a deer came to visit one morning. We wasted an hour just watching it graze nearby!
