Superb forest cottage in a truly stunning location, directly overlooking the open new forest. Donkeys and ponies at the gate and miles of open forest to explore literally on the doorstep. Located just a few hundred yards from the village store and post office, open 7 days a week and traditional new forest pub just a short walk along the forest. Approx. 1.5 miles from the chocolate box village of Beaulieu, 5 miles to the village of Brockenhurst and 5 miles from the town of Lymington.

A deceptively spacious and extremely comfortable 3 bedroom cottage (sleeps 5 adults plus 2 small children), with 2 large king sized double bedrooms, one with en suite shower room and the other with its own patio looking out onto the very pretty rear garden. A further bedroom with a single bed and a toddler bed (suitable for children up to approx. 5 years) overlooking the front of the property and views of the open forest. An additional travel cot also available for use with plenty of room to set up in any of the 3 bedrooms.

Open plan lounge/diner with comfortable seating area, traditional woodburner and views overlooking the open forest. Dining table with seating for 6 plus 1 highchair. Fully fitted kitchen with all modern appliances (hob, oven, fridge/freezer, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine etc...) and a spacious family bathroom with bath and separate shower cubicle.

Single storey accommodation makes this safe and attractive for less able adults and small children. A real country feel cottage with traditional furnishings and attention to detail throughout.

To the rear of the property is a private and secluded cottage garden with mature shrubs, bushes and flowers and an additional larger lawned area perfect for children to safely play with BBQ and outdoor seating. Outbuilding which includes full sized freezer and tumble dryer for guest use and storage space for bicycles.

Off-road parking inside property gates for up to 2 cars or forest roadside parking adjacent to property outside the gates.

About this location

The Hampshire region

East Boldre is a beautiful and traditional New Forest village, located about 1.5 miles south of the chocolate box village of Beaulieu, 5 miles from Lymington and 5 miles from Brockenhurst. There are a number of well known attractions nearby to the cottage including Beaulieu National Motor Museum, Exbury Gardens, Lepe Beach and Country Park and Bucklers Hard. The area also has much to offer outdoor enthusiasts with cycling, walking, sailing, golf and horse riding available in the surrounding area.

Lymington is a pretty market town on the estuary with a good range of independent shops and boutiques, marina, cobbled quay, restaurants and the ferry to the Isle of Wight.

Wren's Nest provides a fantastic base from which to explore The New Forest and its many attractions, the beaches of the South Coast, Hampshire, Dorset and The Isle of Wight - a perfect place for a family holiday or romantic break.

East Boldre

Wren's Nest is located in the heart of East Boldre, a quaint and traditional New Forest village, served by its own post office and store where you can buy virtually anything you need 7 days a week (open till late on Friday) and just a short forest walk to the very popular Turfcutters Pub, a traditional forest pub serving great food and drink with a friendly atmosphere and frequent live music on weekend nights (watch out for the annual summer beer festival, which always promises to be great fun for all ages).

East Boldre has miles of open forest to explore, with historic remnants of 1st and 2nd World War training camps and air fields, as well as miles and miles of forest walking and cycle tracks through the various enclosures and open moorland. Less than 1/2mile from the cottage, 'Hatchet Pond' offers coarse fishing (permits required). It also offers a perfect spot for a picnic and ice cream (ice cream van there most days through summer months).

Wren's Nest offers the perfect base for you to explore and enjoy the best parts of New Forest living.
