There is a separate cosy living room with an open fire, a single bedroom and a separate toilet on the ground floor too.

Explore the New Forest National Park, where you can see the roaming ponies, donkeys and cattle, and enjoy off-road walking, riding and cycling. The popular sailing town of Lymington is about a 20-minute drive with ferry trips to the Isle of Wight, or meander along the cobbled streets with boutiques and eateries along the marina. Bournemouth and Poole, both with award-winning beaches, are within easy reach, as is the city of Salisbury with its medieval cathedral. There are many places of interest for the family including Marwell Zoo, New Forest Otter and Owl Wildlife Park, Beaulieu Motor Museum and Exbury Gardens to name but a few. Further afield but worth the trip, are Stonehenge, Monkey World, the Tank Museum near Wool, and Southampton with its maritime history and West Quay shopping centre. Alternatively spend a day exploring the unspoilt countryside of Dorset and famous World Heritage Jurassic Coast at West Bay, Bridport and onto Weymouth with its superb scenery and coastal walking. Lyme Regis with its harbour, renowned Cobb, beach, shops and activities such as fossil hunting, boating, swimming and fishing, makes for a great day out. Beach 10 miles.

Lovely cottage in a great location. Can walk on to the New Forest straight from the front door. Only round the corner from the village of Burley. Cycle hire from there is worth it to have an explore. The cider pantry was nice for lunch, the pub " the white buck" was really slow and not so great but the food at the next village in the 3 tuns was beautiful. There are plenty of places which are dog friendly. The cottage could benefit from storage for food, there were only really 2 shelves in a cupboard so a bit tight for the amount of people eating/ drinking but, it wouldn't put me off rebooking. Thoroughly good week

Attractive and spacious cottage with secluded gardens in a great location. Clean, well presented and the welcome pack was a very nice touch (the home made lemon drizzle cake was exceptional). Overall I would have scored it higher if it were not for two issues. Firstly there is only one (disproportionately small) bathroom in what is otherwise a perfect place for a large group. The second is the Raeburn cooker- works well as a cooker but gets hot to the touch and stays hot for literally hours. This caused issues with the two (pre school aged) children we had with us as it made the kitchen unsafe for them with no means to keep them away from it. ... Overall a lovely place to stay though and would definitely go there again- although not until the children's are older.
