The Hideaway is tucked away peacefully at the rear of the lawned grounds of the owner’s home, which is steeped in history and which, in the 1830s, included a wheelwrights, post office and bakery. The Hideaway is a single-storey wooden lodge and makes an ideal retreat for couples. Also within the grounds is Walnut Tree Cottage (ref 30424) and The Old Post Office (30425), providing an ideal opportunity for couples or guests wishing to holiday together whilst retaining their own space. This is a convenient location set just back from the main road leading from Salisbury, 9 miles, or Ringwood, 5 miles. Keen walkers will delight in the fact that they are situated directly opposite footpaths within the New Forest National Park, with many scenic walks and ideal for spotting local wildlife. For those who would prefer to explore by cycle, the owners can offer a place to lock your bikes away when not in use. All properties have their own allocated parking, sitting-out area and large lawned gardens shared with the owners and their young family. They make ideal touring bases from which to visit the extensive attractions in the area. Not far away is the charming town of Fordingbridge with a host of shops, cafes and eateries, and the gentle flowing River Avon and the New Forest Water Park wakeboard and aqua park are also close. The location is convenient for road links to the cathedral cities of Winchester and Salisbury, Christchurch Harbour, and the coast including Poole and Bournemouth. Other attractions include Marwell Zoo, Beaulieu Motor Museum and the New Forest Otter and Owl Park. Maritime Southampton and various other tourist attractions are within easy driving distance, as is Stonehenge. Beach 16 miles. Shop and pub 1 mile, restaurant 400 yards.

    The Hideaway was cosy and in nice location. However, as there was thatching happening on other buildings on the site you couldn't park very close to the building and I am on crutches so struggled a bit with that. We were told in advance work would be going on but I did not know until the day before that it would restrict the parking. The breakfasts provided were very small and basic for a b&b. Two of us were there for 4 mornings (needed 8 breakfasts between us) we were given 4 small individual servings of cereal and 4 small eggs and a loaf of bread and one pint of milk between us for the whole duration of our stay. I am gluten free and this wasn't catered for. I would recommend the location and the property but I'd advise bringing additional food and milk for breakfasts.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; I am very sorry that you feel we let you down over your stay at the Hideaway. We try our best to make our guests feel welcome and I always ask guests to let me know if there is anything they are unhappy with, feel should be in the cottage but isn’t or indeed if there is anything we can do to make their stay more enjoyable. The Hideaway is a self-catering holiday cottage, not a bed and breakfast. As far as I am aware cottages.com do not have any B&B properties. We leave a “welcome pack” of bread, milk, cereal, eggs, butter and jam to (as I think I said to you) help guests get started. This is a little freebie from us to you as a welcome; I am sorry if by giving this to you we confused you into thinking we offer bed and breakfast. As for the access restriction during the thatching, I can only apologies again for the inconvenience. The restriction to access was notified prominently on the Cottages.com booking page that describes the cottage from October last year - as soon as we booked the thatcher. As you booked in late December this should have been made clear to you. I am sorry if you didn’t notice it. I had hoped it stood out enough for everyone to spot it. I hope that you have not been put off ever visiting us again.

    Only one tea towel and the towels could have been nicer. More fluffy. Otherwise fine

    We had a fantastic stay here with our young grandchildren!! Safe and secure for them to explore and the cottage was small and quaint but ample room for us. Welcome pack of groceries was a lovely gesture and the owners were very friendly and happy to help with any questions or queries. Very quiet and secluded little cottage within the grounds of their own property but would never have known they were there. Would definitely come again. New Forest is very beautiful.
