This former village bakehouse is the perfect base for a relaxing break. Unwind with a dip in the hot tub, strike up the BBQ or tuck up beside the wood burner after walking in the beautiful New Forest.

Curl up by the fire, languish in the hot tub, socialise over a game of pool or explore the stunning surroundings, there are myriad opportunities for both leisure and play. Sleeping eight people over four bedrooms and welcoming your four dogs too, this spacious holiday cottage in Sway is the perfect base for family celebrations and group getaways with friends.

A stylish mix of classic and contemporary, the homely touches lends a warm, cosy vibe to this characterful property. Step in from the main entrance and come into the lounge. Bathed in light, there is ample seating for everyone. Pull a book from the shelves or switch on the TV, and in winter light the wood burner for extra warmth and ambience. From the lounge, a step up leads you into the dining room where you'll find the dining table-come-pool table with views of the garden. The kitchen, adjacent to the dining room, is well-equipped with utensils and appliances. There are also four bedrooms: one king-size bedroom downstairs and three super-king-size zip-and-link bedrooms (which can be made up as a twin on request) upstairs. Heading outside, enjoy the enclosed garden with hot tub, outdoor seating, charcoal BBQ and a lawn, ideal for playtime with your four-pawed pals.

In the heart of the village, eateries and shops are in walking distance (less than 0.5 miles), while Lymington is only 5.5 miles away. For bountiful walks, venture into the New Forest National Park, for salty adventures, drive to the coast (6 miles) or for a piece of history, Highcliffe Castle, a Gothic revival mansion with tearoom and gardens is 9 miles away. You can also take a boat across to the Isle of Wight from Lymington and enjoy this gem of an isle for the day.

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

We found the location perfect, sadly the garden adjoined an active building site so we were disturbed by digging and a JCB during the day. There were bait stations in the garden and it took us less than 24hrs to see rats. We found one beside the outside fridge dying and another, dead, by the hot tub.

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.
