It is ideally situated for exploring the area on foot, by bike or by car, being only 4 miles from Lyndhurst, the “capital” of the New Forest. Yet the waterfront city of Southampton, which has a main line station, theatre, shopping and leisure complex, is only 6 miles away.

The self-contained holiday ground floor annexe has off road parking and its own private entrance via a south facing garden path and patio. This opens into a spacious bedroom with a King size bed and triple aspect views of the garden. The large open plan living/dining room has an archway entrance into a well equipped kitchen, containing a fridge/freezer, microwave, double electric oven and gas hob. If cooking is not high on your holiday agenda there is a good selection of pubs and takeaways in the area! A small hallway leads to a bathroom with bath/electric shower, toilet and basin. There is a TV/DVD in the living room and the bedroom.

Good quality bed linen and towels, gas and electricity are included in the price.

Regrettably no dogs due to resident Border Collie - Josie and cats - Sheba and Pixie

The New Forest is England's smallest National Park situated on the south coast of England covering 220 square miles, between Southampton and Bournemouth. Protected since William the Conqueror discovered the deer filled heathland, pretty glades and wild wood over 900 years ago. A place to enjoy a break from the frantic pace of life, where the ponies, donkeys and cattle still roam free. A haven for the cyclist, walker and horse rider. There are award winning gardens, museums and historic houses plus a coastline renowned for it's sailing. Picturesque villages provide cosy tea shops and there is a wide range of choice for eating and drinking from traditional English pubs to sumptuous evening meals in award winning restaurants.
