In a position that is little known, Baileys Hard is a small selection of well positioned, discreet homes on the renowned Beaulieu Estate, situated at the end of a long single track road.

A superbly located property situated in a wooded setting on the bank of the Beaulieu River, an ideal spot to enjoy the peace and tranquillity. Just a couple of miles up the road is the Bucklers Hard Maritime museum, which gives an insight into the history of this 18th century shipbuilding village focusing on its vessels. On the way to Beaulieu village meet the local ponies and donkeys grazing on the road side and then on to Beaulieu Motor museum offering a calendar full of events throughout the year. Close to the pretty Georgian market town of Lymington where there are shops, restaurants and gastro pubs. The area also offers plenty cycling routes and forest walks.

From the entrance hall you will find three bedrooms on the ground floor. The master double bedroom has a pleasing view looking out over the rear decking and woodland surroundings. The twin and single bedrooms both offer enchanting views. The bathroom has a bath, large shower cubicle and WC. The staircase leads to the first floor open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, the lounge area is a perfect spot to curl up and relax with a good book or watch a movie in front of the inviting wood burner. The spacious dining area has plenty of room for a super dinner party. There is a bright, airy and well-equipped kitchen with an electric oven and induction hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge and freezer, it’s a great space for the aspiring chef. The separate utility room has a washing machine and tumble dryer. There is also an additional WC upstairs.

Access the garden from the double glazed French doors onto a large decked veranda with garden furniture, seating for five guests, views across the woods and a sneak peek at the Beaulieu River through the trees. What a perfect spot for dining al fresco for friends and family to enjoy. On the ground level, to the rear of the property, there is an all weather table tennis table.

We had a lovely time at Treetops. It had everything we needed and was in an amazing location. It was good place to go with children (2 & 6 years). I would say it was one of the best self catering places we have stayed. The hosts were brilliant. We are planning to go back in the summer to make use of the balcony!

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.
