Situated in a wonderful location where you can literally step out from the door and explore the wonderful landscapes of the New Forest, this detached holiday cottage makes the perfect spot for outdoor enthusiasts. Scenic walks, bridleways and cycling routes are in abundance, or enjoy watching the roaming ponies. This lovely family home stands peacefully overlooking fields to the rear, along a lane, about a mile from the centre of Burley and approximately 5 miles from the popular town of Ringwood. Inside, the light and airy open plan kitchen/dining room has an seating area, lovely oak floor, Rayburn and French doors that lead out to the garden. There is a separate cosy living room with an open fire, a single bedroom and a separate toilet on the ground floor too. On the first floor, three further bedrooms, all with sloping ceilings, have been decorated with neutral tones. The expansive gardens have an outside dining table and chairs, and there is parking for 3 cars.

The ever-popular village of Burley has a variety of gift shops, the Cider Store, ice cream parlours, tea rooms, pubs and eateries, as well as a bus stop for those looking to venture out without the car. 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. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

    The location is lovely and if you are prepared to 'rough it' this may be the cottage for you. Yes there are 8 beds and 8 chairs around the table, but the facilities for 8 stop there. We went as a four and struggled with the facilities. There is one tiny, very tiny bathroom. The lounge is small with two very uncomfortable sofas (very low and well past their useful life) which at a push would seat 5 or 6 small people. Bean bags are provided for the remainder. There is a single oven, plus a warming oven, a full size fridge and a tiny freezer. The best way to describe this cottage is very tired. p.s. the bedrooms have slopping ceilings and someone of normal height has to stoop and in one case bend almost double to get into bed.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; I was very dismayed, upset and confused to read your recent observations of Brookside Cottage, especially after receiving your complimentary texts during and on your departure and following your entry in our Guest book. Brookside Cottage is indeed in a beautiful location and I take great pride in making sure that all fixtures and fittings are of the highest specification and quality. The property was refurbished a couple of years ago and I am surprised that you thought the property appeared tired. The pictures on the website were taken eighteen months ago and give a clear and true representation of the cottage. It can be clearly seen that the bedrooms have sloping ceilings and the description of the property clearly states this fact. As you state there is a bigger than average fridge with a small freezer and an additional separate larger free standing freezer in the dining room for our guests convenience. The cushions on one of the sofas in the lounge are filled with feathers and can get squidgy if they are not regularly plumped. We and many others love this squidgy look but i understand that they may not be to everyone's taste which is why the other sofa and the recently purchased sofa in the dining room have cushions which are much firmer. The bathroom is small as can be seen in the photo but is furnished to a high specification with a full size bath and power shower, sized to accommodate my two 6'3 sons. There is an additional toilet and sink for guests downstairs. The Raeburn has a bigger than average roasting oven with the addition of a further oven for slow cooking. The cottage was inspected by Cottages.com last year. The facilities and amenities are suitable to sleep 8 people.

    Beautiful home, only criticism is that the sofas were a little uncomfortable and there was no hoover, otherwise lovely

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Dear Paula - Thank you for your warm comments regarding Brookside Cottage, I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. The property does have a very good Miele hoover which is kept in the wardrobe upstairs, I am so sorry you were unable to find it on this occasion. A call to the property manager could have rectified the issue immediately. I will be amending the property manual to include these details.

    A beautiful cottage set in the middle of nowhere but with easy access to everything you need, pub, shops and lovely places to walk your dog. The cottage it self was warm and cosy. We all enjoyed our stay in the cottage and already thinking about coming back in 2019.

    We had a really lovely stay at Brookside Cottage. A great welcome hamper on arrival which was a lovely treat. The cottage had a lovely homely feel as soon as you walk in. Location was a great choice as we were right in the middle of the new forest and everything else was in a easy reach. We would definitely like to go back again if we go to the New Forest. Only minus if there is one the sofas are a little bit squidgy - we loved them but maybe could do with replacing soon.

    We enjoyed a fabulous week at Brookside. A great venue to entertain our various guests who visited during our stay. The experience started before we left home with a call from Julia, the cottage host, to ensure all was clear and then followed by a wonderful arrival package, including delicious homemade apple cake. The cottage was immaculately clean and high quality fixtures and equipment compared with other cottages we have stayed. A generous open plan kitchen-diner, leading to large garden made for ideal dining. Very close to local attractions of Lyndhurst, Brockenhurst and Lymington.
