Lovely cottage in the ideal location to explore the New Forest National Park and the beautiful Moors Valley Country Park.

This lovely detached single storey lodge is located at the front of the owners home, with a backdrop of tall trees. Ideal for couples or small families, Forest Edge enjoys an enviable position close to Moors Valley Country Park – one of Dorset’s main visitor attractions. Inside the property offers tastefully furnished, light and airy accommodation, with high ceilings, and there is a sofa bed in the open plan living area for up to two children. The master bedroom has an en-suite Jacuzzi shower room with spa jets. Outside there is a separate summerhouse/games room with pool table, air hockey, darts, and drum kit, and this can also be used for storing bikes or other equipment. The summerhouse has a sitting out area and BBQ for guests.
There is so much to do at Moors Valley Country Park for all age groups and it is also dog friendly. As well as scenic walks and excellent wildlife spotting, there are a host of recreational activities such as angling, orienteering, cycle hire, golf, ‘Go-Ape’ Tree Top Adventure, Forest Segway, and walking. There are also various exhibitions and talks on subjects such as wildlife photography. As well as this main attraction on your doorstep, there are many other places to visit and things to do in the area, Avon Heath is close by and is ideal for keen ramblers.
The New Forest National Park provides miles of scenic walks and a network of bridle paths and footpaths, and you can often find the ponies and cattle roaming the streets in one of the many picturesque villages.

    Beautiful well equipped cottage which was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. (Amazing shower). Location was excellent, not having to travel too far for days out, with forest and coast easily accessible. Owners Mel and Chris were very friendly with welcoming tea and cake on arrival. Highly recommended!

    We had a wonderful time in the Forest Edge. It is a perfect place to visit the New Forest and Moors Valley Country Park. The cottage is cosy, clean, beautiful and has a phantastic shower! We enjoyed ourselves by pooling games in the gamesroom.
