This thatched cottage, steeped in history, offers a spacious interior and an attractive large landscaped garden.

This wonderful, detached, thatched cottage, with a separate annexe, offers an attractive large lawned landscaped garden and a spacious and tastefully styled interior. Conveniently located, set back from the main road leading from Salisbury, 9 miles or Ringwood, 5 miles. For keen walkers, this is the perfect location, situated directly opposite footpaths and within easy reach of the New Forest National Park, with many scenic walks and great for spotting local wildlife.
Dating back to the 1600s, this comfortable and spacious home is steeped in history. The famous local painter, Augustus John, resided here and he had a studio to show off his work, which became a popular stopping point for gentry travelling from London to the West Country. In later years, he became a renowned political spokesperson with many articles published in the Delphic Review, which was edited in Fordingbridge.
The main property comprises a large living room on the ground floor with an open fire, wet room/utility and kitchen/dining room with a range set within an inglenook bread oven, and original brick floor. There is a steep curved staircase to the master bedroom with high ceilings and original beams and an en-suite toilet. There is a separate staircase to the second bedroom, which is very spacious and has a double and single bed. The third bedroom is in a separate annexe adjacent to the house, which is above the garage, accessed by external steps; guests will find a double bed, sofabed (for alternative sleeping), and en-suite shower room with toilet.
This is a great touring base from which to visit the extensive attractions in the area. Nearby, the charming town of Fordingbridge has a host of shops, cafés and eateries, and the gentle flowing River Avon is also nearby. Rockbourne is good for fly fishing and there is coarse fishing at Fordingbridge. There is a water park with various water sports including windsurfing and boating close by.
Convenient for road links to the cathedral cities of Winchester and Salisbury, Stonehenge, Christchurch Harbour and the coast including Poole, Sandbanks and Bournmouth. Other attractions include Marwell Zoo, Beaulieu Motor Museum, Monkey World, Avon Heath Country Park and The New Forest Wildlife Park. Maritime Southampton and various other tourist attractions are within easy driving distance. Shop 4 miles, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

    A lovely charming character cottage. Superb walk in shower and bathroom. Very welcome real fire on a cold night. Found main road a little noisy first thing in morning. But would definitely stay again.

    Suited our anniversary weekend with our family. Location was OK but due to whether was not able to go out and explore the local walks. Had a great meal out at the Bat and Ball Pub in the next village. Problem with busy road would put a lot of people off, heavy lorries going past spoilt the otherwise cosy cottage feel. Getting out onto the main Salisbury Road could be challenging but generally OK most of the time. If the weather was dry there was a footpath across the road behind the Bus Stop that would allow you to explore a lot more along an old Rail Line.

    Lovely cottage and garden. Very spacious for an old thatched cottage and well equipped. On a main road so the traffic can be a little noisy at times. Wifi speed very slow though...measured at less than 0.5Mbps.

    Lovely cottage in nice garden.. turn to driveway off a very busy road was a bit tight, caution was needed when pulling out onto the main road. Cottage had spacious rooms and a good kitchen area. Overall very pleasent and we had a nice stay

    Thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in the New Forest and Yew Tree cottage was very convenient for accessing it. Cottage very well equiped and clean with plenty of space. The only 'down-side' for us with 2 dogs is that there was no convenient walk nearby, we always had to use the car to take them out.

    We had a lovely week at Yew Tree Cottage. The garden was great for the kids and we had fun evenings around the kitchen table. It's a good location for exploring the New Forest.

    We had a very relaxing break in a lovely cottage, very close to a lot of attractions including Poultons Park which our 2year old granddaughter absolutely loved!!We found lots of nice walks for the dog and good pubs in the area. Would definitely recommend for anyone with a dog.

    We do love this cottage and it's our second visit although there are some issues that should be addressed; The key safe at front door did not close and was open when we arrived. The walls in the kitchen and bathroom could do with a wipe down as lots of splashes of food etc. The settees in front room need a good clean underneath the seat cushions it was full of debris . I am not being negative here just feel these points rectified would have increased my scores . Having said that we would return and are looking forward to doing so.
