Unwind in this charming former chapel. Take time out to relax in the stunning open-plan space or take a walk in the beautiful countryside surrounding the village.

A quirky, former Methodist chapel, this property boasts superb access to the New Forest National Park. Ideal for families and friends, nature-lovers and keen walkers are afforded the most idyllic base from which to explore by day and relax by night. Sleeping four people across two bedrooms and with room for your two dogs, embrace the chance to get away from it all and lose yourself to tranquillity.

Ditch muddy boots and wipe paws in the entrance's utility room and head inside. If you've spent a day walking, the bathroom (located just opposite the utility) has a bath, perfect for soaking aching muscles and unwinding. For a brisk start to your day, there is a separate shower too. Further inside the property, the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner takes pride of place. Here, tall ceilings lend a sense of grandeur, complemented by underfloor heating that in winter adds an especially cosy dimension. Pad over to the kitchen and begin culinary preparations for your evening meal; everything has been provided to help you create meals like you would at home. Clink glasses around the dining table and later let the dishwasher take care of the washing up. From the comfortable lounge, two staircases lead to separate galleried mezzanine bedrooms with privacy screens: a king-size and a twin. On summer days, you will find eating alfresco a tempting proposition most evenings, making good use of the BBQ and garden furniture.

Located within the New Forest, beautiful scenic walks are in abundance. Pick up one of the many trails nearby and wander below emerald canopies, accompanied by birdsong and the gentle crunch of your boots. For supplies, Woodgreen village itself has a shop and a pub (only a few hundred yards away), whilst Fordingbridge (3.5 miles) and Ringwood (9.6 miles) are home to cafes, shops and restaurants.

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

The property had been very well rennovated from a former methodist Chapel. The Air Heat Sourse and underfloor heating worked very well. We would definatly stay there again.

The Old Chapel has lots of character and made a very comfortable base for exploring the New Forest. Woodgreen is a lovely village with good pub and well stocked community shop and lots of walks from the front door. The owner was very welcoming with good advice on the area.

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.
