You’ll find the cottage in a large clearing among ancient trees. It’s a calm, leafy oasis, where birdsong surrounds you, wild ponies hang their heads over the gate for apples and you can walk out into the forest for miles in every direction.
The newly renovated kitchen here is built for families to chat, play games and spend time around the big kitchen table, which seats 8. There is a modern wood burner here to heat you up on cold nights and the kitchen is well set up for cooks including a Magimix and bread maker! In the boot room there is the main fridge freezer (a small under counter one is in the kitchen) and space to store shoes and other items. The bathroom downstairs is bright, breezy and blue and has a bath and shower over the bath. This room is also the main downstairs toilet for in the cottage. The sitting room is in the oldest part of the house and has low ceilings typical of old New Forest cottages. The fireplace and wood burner dominate the room which has a clever glassy alcove mini-library too.
Furthest from the kitchen, through the sitting room, you’ll find a downstairs double room with en-suite shower and toilet. The bed is 4’6″ with double doors onto a garden terrace, which is a good sun trap and perfect for reading and resting quietly away from the pool.
Upstairs you’ll find a double room that can be made into a twin and next door a small and bright single room in the rafters.
In the Stables, just across the lawn (by about 20 metres) are the stables, recently total renovated in oak. There is an office/reading/music room, which has full length bi-fold doors and looks onto the lawns facing the house. There is a well-stocked playroom with tepee and toys for smaller kids. The latter also has full length bi-folds and a good bathroom which can also be used as a shower/change room for the pool.
Three of the rooms are suitable for travel cots. There is a well stocked playroom. We provide 2 cots and 2 high chairs. There are child friendly biking trails from the house. And a horse riding centre nearby which is great for kids.
Bluetooth connected sound system, 32″ TV, DVD player and good DVD selection. Up to 2 cars in the garden, another 2 outside. Dogs welcome.
