Little Terraces is the 'cosy cottage with the big view', in the charming village of Downton, bordering Wiltshire, Hampshire and Dorset. It is just a few minutes drive to the New Forest National Park and ideal for access to Salisbury, Stonehenge and the south coast beaches.
Recently renovated to a high standard, the cottage is designed for couples to unwind and escape the stresses of everyday life. Everything you need is provided. Shops, pubs and a delightful café serving home made local produce are all within walking distance, or you can stroll along the riverside walk across water meadows, all without moving the car.
We welcome one well behaved dog. Enjoy the freedom of the New Forest, with its many free roaming ponies, cattle, donkeys, deer and, at the right time of year, pigs. Alternatively, head for the glorious sandy beaches, stunning Jurassic coast and beautiful Poole Harbour.

The Central Southern England region
Downton is a picturesque village on the borders of Wiltshire, Hampshire and Dorset. It has shops, cafes and pubs all within walking distance of Little Terraces. There is a lovely riverside walk and excellent fishing on the river Avon and nearby lakes. It provides easy access to the rolling countryside of the Salisbury plain and the glorious beaches from Lymington to Christchurch, Bournemouth and Poole, many of which have blue flag status. Just 5 minutes away is the New Forest National Park with its free roaming ponies, donkeys, cows, deer and even pigs! There are many visitor attractions in the area including National Trust properties at Kingston Lacey and Stourhead. Stonehenge and the Amesbury Rings are close by as is the Beaulieu Motor Museum and the New Forest towns of Fordingbridge, Lyndhurst and Brockenhurst.
Annual events include the Cuckoo Fair in Downton in May, the New Forest Show at Brockenhurst in July and the Bournemouth Air Festival on the beach in August. There are several carnivals, village shows and fetes throughout the summer months to attracts locals and holiday makers alike.
All this is just 2 hours from London.
Little Terraces is within easy walking distance of the shops, pubs and cafes in Downton, the latter serving excellent food. Riverside or country walks can be taken directly from the door. The area is well known for its superb fishing venues. Just a 5 minute drive and you are in the New Forest National Park with its free roaming ponies, cattle, deer and pigs. It is a bird watchers paradise. There are ample opportunities for walking, cycling and horse riding through the trees or over the open heathland, which bursts into purple with the heather in August. Autumn brings the glorious golds of the changing leaves, followed by the sparkling frosts and snow of winter. Spring is a burst of fresh green growth and new born animals.
6 miles away in the medieval city of Salisbury is the beautiful cathedral with its glorious music and historic Close. There are many shops, pubs and restaurants, a cinema, bowling alley and water meadows to enjoy.
In the other direction, on the edge of the New Forest is Fordingbridge, a small town on the river Avon with a museum and delightful shops to look around.
A little further afield is the coast, ideal for walks on the blue flag beaches, swimming in the sea, boat trips and visits to the stunning Poole harbour, the second largest natural harbour in the world.

"cosy clean peaceful"
we stay at little terraces for one week ,we spoke to sue and she could not be more helpful, the steps to the top terrace gives the legs a work out ,they have a basket for all your bits to take up ,yo… More
I am so glad you enjoyed your week at Little Terraces. Not all cottages come with the added bonus of a free leg work out rewarded by fabulous views and sunsets! It was no trouble to return your belongings, I am pleased you are now reunited. Hopefully you will return one day, and maybe the river Avon will produce a big fish for you! Sue

I visited the cottage along with my two dogs for a long weekend at the end of June on a last minute booking and could not have been more impressed. The cottage was spotless, clean and tidy! Everything… More
I am delighted you had such an enjoyable stay at Little Terraces and that the weather allowed you to experience the terrace at its best. The views are absolutely stunning and it is so nice that your Mum and Dad enjoyed them too. Perhaps they will stay next time. Sue

"Great cottage, far exceeded expectations"
Littles Terraces was a fantastic and cosy cottage. Although named 'little' we found it to be perfectly sized for a couple, lots of space throughout but yet very cosy.Sue has done a great job… More
Thank you for your lovely comments on Little Terraces. I am delighted you felt so at home. The walk across the water meadows is lovely and changes with the seasons. I hope to welcome you back to enjoy more walks, perhaps along the Avon Valley path and through the New Forest. Sue

Little Terraces is a lovely little place, perfect for a couple to spend a relaxing holiday. You have lots of activities and places to experience. Salisbury is also just up the road. It has an extremely home from home feel about it. There's no reason not to stay here!
We are glad you enjoyed your stay at Little Terraces and had a relaxing holiday. As you say there is a lot to see and do in the area. We look forward to seeing you again, when you can explore different places and try something new.

"A wonderful little cottage with a great big view"
This is probably the best cottage we have stayed at to date. A charming and cozy cottage with everything you need for that home from home feeling. Whilst there is no getting away from the fact that the cottage is compact, the clever way it is laid out and the use of space, is almost 'tardis' like. The living room has everything you need for your evening - a good size folding table to dine at, a comfortable couch and wood burner. The TV & DVD is nice to have if you don't have a good book. We welcomed the 'visitor pack' - lots of information - real thought and effort has gone into this cottage to help make the stay as pleasant as possible. The kitchen is fantastically well equipped - everything you need, including lovely sharp knives. The bathroom is functional and it's nice to have a power shower at the end of the day. The bedroom is very spacious with a very comfortable bed and lots of cupboard and drawer space. Outside, you have a choice of three terraces, the final one at the top having a wonderful view. We would totally recommend this cottage and can't wait to return.
Thank you for your kind words. We are flattered and delighted that Little Terraces is so high on your list of places to stay. We look forward to welcoming you back one day.
