A beautiful country cottage in the heart of the New Forest, a short distance to the local amenities with an array of places to visit nearby.

Dine out in the sunshine in the pretty garden on warm days and light the wood burner on chilly evenings at this inviting holiday home in Burley. Enjoy the benefit of village life as well as picturesque New Forest surroundings from this attractive, three-bedroom holiday home, which sleeps up to six guests and also welcomes one four-legged friend.

Open the door into this inviting country home and find yourself in the bright kitchen, where you will find everything you need for your stay. This is the perfect place to make home-cooked meals to carry through into the open-plan lounge/diner, and there is also a handy washing machine here. After dinner, head over to the comfortable seating to bask in the glow of the wood burner and watch TV or a DVD or listen to your favourite tunes through the Sonos speakers. For a quiet moment to yourself, head into the conservatory to enjoy the views. One of the three bedrooms, which has a king-size bed, is also on the ground floor. Venture upstairs to discover the second king-size bedroom, plus a twin room, perfect for a good night’s sleep. The family bathroom is also on this floor. On balmy evenings, have supper out in the garden and play games with the children on the grass. There is also parking for two cars at the property.

Wander into Burley to peruse the shops and perhaps sit down to a delicious pub roast. Find lots of walking and cycling trails from the village; you can hire bicycles and take off for as long as you like on any number of circular routes. Enjoy your proximity to the coast as well, by spending time on the beach at Milford on Sea, 10 miles away, or Bournemouth, 14 miles away.

A very comfortable & well equipped cottage which was only a few minutes from the village, the open moors & the cycle paths. We loved it. The kids loved it. The dog loved it. What more can you hope for?

Absolutely stunning cottage, with a huge garden. We took our puppy and are please to say the garden was very secure. The decor and finish in the cottage were to a very high standard. Gorgeous area, would highly recommend a trip to knights wood which is a quick drive away. Light, airy, and a garden to die for, we thoroughly enjoyed our time here.

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.
