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.

    This is a small but cosy two person cottage. There are low ceilings because of the thatched roof. The only negative issue is the lack of Wifi.

    The cottage was in a good location close to the New Forest and Sandyballs. Fordingbridge was a beautiful little town which was within a 25 minute walk. The cottage itself was warm and comfortable. I had twins with me and they were catered for with cots and high chairs. The bedroom was comfortable and you will have a good sleep. My only criticism is the fact the kitchen was a bit dirty and needed to have a bit of a clean. The bathroom also needs a bit of a refresh as it was a bit dated like the kitchen. Apart from that we had a great time. The host was accommodating and I would come back to stay again.

    The owners were very friendly and helpful. The only thing I would suggest is that there were more kitchen utensils ie more knives, a potato peeler and a measuring jug, simply because we ate quite a bit in at night.

    I only spent a few days here but wish it could have been longer. The owner was very welcoming and has provided everything you need including lots of information about local places to visit. A welcome pack of milk, bread, eggs, butter, jam was most appreciated. There are nice walks from the cottage as well as being an ideal base to explore the wider area. There is a stop for the New Forest hop on hop off bus just a short walk down the road. There is a lovely garden to sit and enjoy the peaceful evenings. I would happily stay here again.

    Great cottage, perfect for a couple or small family. My husband and I had a fabulous time with our two year old. It's in an ideal location with plenty to do nearby, my toddler loved the large garden to run around in. Jeremy was very helpful and informative and included a welcome pack of food which was very useful. Would highly recommend :)
