Walnut Tree Cottage is a delightful, detached thatched cottage within the owner’s lawned grounds and lies opposite the owner’s home, which is steeped in history and which, in the 1830s, included a wheelwrights, post office and bakery. Also within the grounds is The Old Post Office (ref 30425) and The Hideaway (UKC540), providing an ideal opportunity a for another couple or guests wishing to holiday together whilst retaining their own space. Walnut Tree Cottage comprises a shower room and kitchen/dining area downstairs, and an upstairs living area and sofa bed suitable for children, leading to a double bedroom. It has plentiful beams and wooden floors. 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 is also nearby. 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.

    Had a very good holiday at the cottage. The owners kept to themselves which with 3 young children and a b and b is understandable. They were there if we needed anything. I thought the cooker needed upgrading and the bed was quite hard. Also the heating was a bit hit and miss. Storage heaters are hard to regulate. Luckily the weather was good and we coped.

    My wife and I along with our two children had a lovely two week holiday at the cottage ,we were made very welcome and it was a perfect home from home for us we were sad to leave at the end of the two weeks. It made for a great base to set of from ,wether it was heading to the beach at Bournemouth,cycling/walking in the forest or visiting other villages .We will definitely book it again the next time we need a cottage there 😊

    My first holiday away with my partner. Beautiful setting, lovely and quiet. Ideal location for exploring the New Forest. The cottage itself was well equipped with everything that you need. A welcome pack of milk, bread, eggs, cereals, tea and coffee are supplied on arrival, lovely touch!

    Lovely people but this cottage needs more attention.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; I am confused and astonished. You booked a week in our small studio unit “The Old Post Office” but on arrival were disappointed because it doesn’t have a lounge. So at no extra cost beyond what we pay our cleaner we moved you to one of our higher priced one bedroom units. Throughout your stay you told us how lovely it was and spontaneously said that you would leave a 10/10 review - both because you loved the cottage and because of all the trouble we had been to.
