From a touch of luxury to characterful heritage, experience one of our truly inspiring holiday properties.


This 16th-century property is set in a peaceful location, yet is close to many attractions, including the New Forest.

This superb, detached, 16th-century holiday property enjoys a truly beautiful location. Peacefully located along a quiet lane and nestled within gently sloping, lawned gardens, with rose lined pathways, a meandering shallow stream and views at the rear over the countryside. There is even a gypsy caravan for children to discover within the gardens! Steeped in history, this delightful home offers many original architectural features in keeping with the character of a period house, such as beams (some low), original inglenook fireplaces and tiled floors. The fire back in the inglenook fireplace in the snug depicts William and Mary and his apple trees, this matches one in the National Trust’s fire back collection in Petworth House, made in 1690s. There is also a spacious green oak studio with high ceilings and French doors, which provides a fabulous reception room opening straight out onto the patio decking, and also includes an en-suite shower and kitchenette, ideal as an alternative sleeping arrangement, with a day bed which can be converted to a 6ft double. As well as the main living room, there is a snug, a desk area and at the heart of the home, a farmhouse-style kitchen with Aga and a dining area overlooking the extensive gardens. The large, raised decked area is an ideal spot from which to savour the views whilst having an aperitif or dining al fresco on a warm summer’s evening. The lovely view over the gardens can be enjoyed from the tastefully styled bedrooms, with the large master bedroom being a particular feature, with its own dressing room and en-suite bathroom. In the small bedroom at the top of the stairs, a section of the original wall construction is exposed. The 4 bathrooms are well fitted, one of them has a roll-top bath with super Moroccan themed tiles. High quality linen and beds are throughout. The ever popular New Forest is part of the National Park and is a haven for wildlife, with many roaming ponies across the heathland, extensive walks, cycling and riding routes. There is plenty to do in the area for all ages, all year round. The popular sailing town of Lymington is only a 10-minute drive, with its pretty harbour, cobbled pedestrianised streets, boutiques, eateries, pubs and day trips to the Isle of Wight on the ferry. Other places of interest include Beaulieu Motor Museum, Bucklers Hard, Marwell Zoo, Peppa Pig at Paultons Park, New Forest Owl and Otter Park and Southampton with its maritime history, to name but a few! Salters Cottage is also within easy reach of many beaches, including Mudeford, Sandbanks, Poole and Bournemouth. Shop ½ mile and pub ¼ mile.

    A wonderful cottage for a holiday for the extended family. The gardener also should be praised for the way in which he maintained the large garden.

    Our first impression was “Wow!” The deck and patio are ideal resting and reading areas in the afternoon and superb in the evening for barbeques and al fresco dining . We were spoilt for choice for local pubs and restaurants. Plenty to see, plenty to do, and a cracking place to stay in whilst we do it. The “Wow” factor lasted all week.

    An amazing house that suited our needs perfectly. We did have an issue with the hot water whilst staying at Salters, however it was dealt with quickly and efficiently. Would definitely return here!

    Had a lovely week with family (ages 0 to 60+) and would recommend Salters Cottage as an excellent holiday venue, either to explore from or just to relax in. The gardens are lovely and the accommodation is of a high standard. Only (small) complaint was that the master suite did become a little chilly overnight (late-November). Plenty of space internally, and safe enough for very little ones to explore (with supervision!).
