The New Forest National Park can be reached within a 10-minute drive and the Avon Valley Trail runs through the grounds.

This delightful, holiday cottage provides a wealth of character and charm and is located within 10 minutes’ drive of the picturesque harbour town of Christchurch and the New Forest National Park. This detached Heritage Asset was formerly the Kennelman’s cottage for the Sopley Manor Estate, and sits in a conservation area, in the middle of the owners’ 12½ acres of land with animals and clear views over the land from every direction, making it ideal for those who want to feel like they are away from it all. The Avon Valley long distance trail runs across part of the land, leading to two pubs within half a mile of the property. It is well situated for exploring the area including Bournemouth and Poole, with their sandy beaches, shops and restaurants, the cities of Winchester, Salisbury, Southampton and Portsmouth for maritime history and large shopping centres. Shop 1 mile, pubs serving food ½ mile.

    Excellent choice for a relaxing break...so quiet... with only the sheep and horses keeping you company. Cottage comfortable and well equipped with an enclosed garden if like us bringing dogs. Central for visiting the coast and the New Forest.... Recommend!!

    Very nice week but unfortunately the winter weather was not kind to us which made walking difficult and going to local pubs had to be by car!! We would return but in spring /summer next time. Facilities were great and the log burning stove was a must for our stay. Hosts were nice and gave us the privacy we were looking for over Xmas.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; We are delighted you enjoyed the cottage and facilities so much so you wish to return. Unfortunately there is very little we can do about the January weather and are disappointed this was reflected in our review score. We do hope the weather is kinder on your return.
