This thatched cottage, steeped in history, offers a spacious interior and an attractive large landscaped garden.

This wonderful, detached, thatched cottage, with a separate annexe, offers an attractive large lawned landscaped garden and a spacious and tastefully styled interior. Conveniently located, set back from the main road leading from Salisbury, 9 miles or Ringwood, 5 miles. For keen walkers, this is the perfect location, situated directly opposite footpaths and within easy reach of the New Forest National Park, with many scenic walks and great for spotting local wildlife.
Dating back to the 1600s, this comfortable and spacious home is steeped in history. The famous local painter, Augustus John, resided here and he had a studio to show off his work, which became a popular stopping point for gentry travelling from London to the West Country. In later years, he became a renowned political spokesperson with many articles published in the Delphic Review, which was edited in Fordingbridge.
The main property comprises a large living room on the ground floor with an open fire, wet room/utility and kitchen/dining room with a range set within an inglenook bread oven, and original brick floor. There is a steep curved staircase to the master bedroom with high ceilings and original beams and an en-suite toilet. There is a separate staircase to the second bedroom, which is very spacious and has a double and single bed. The third bedroom is in a separate annexe adjacent to the house, which is above the garage, accessed by external steps; guests will find a double bed, sofabed (for alternative sleeping), and en-suite shower room with toilet.
This is a great touring base from which to visit the extensive attractions in the area. Nearby, the charming town of Fordingbridge has a host of shops, cafés and eateries, and the gentle flowing River Avon is also nearby. Rockbourne is good for fly fishing and there is coarse fishing at Fordingbridge. There is a water park with various water sports including windsurfing and boating close by.
Convenient for road links to the cathedral cities of Winchester and Salisbury, Stonehenge, Christchurch Harbour and the coast including Poole, Sandbanks and Bournmouth. Other attractions include Marwell Zoo, Beaulieu Motor Museum, Monkey World, Avon Heath Country Park and The New Forest Wildlife Park. Maritime Southampton and various other tourist attractions are within easy driving distance. Shop 4 miles, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

    Really lovely property. Loved the layout and quirkiness of it! Lovely big rooms, very comfy beds, big and we’ll equipped kitchen. Very thoughtful of the owner to provide milk, biscuits and wine - much appreciated. Just a couple of observations- the shower head is broken and the tiles in the shower have mould on them - not horrendous but noticeable. Some of the kitchen equipment was a bit grubby and needed cleaning before it could be used. The lock on the door needs some attention as it is very loose.

    Yew Tree cottage has been done out very nicely and feels very homely from the minute to through the door. The stair case is a bit challenging, but having a enclosed WC in the room means that you don't have to keep going up and down the stairs. To be honest it all adds to the character. We only used the 2 main bedrooms in the cottage, so it was a bit of a trek downstairs to the use the toilet in the middle of the night, but we knew that before we arrived. Plenty of kitchen equipment and a huge aga so you could cook a big breakfast at the same time.

    Staying in this old cottage was really special for us. The stairs are steep, the floor is uneven and not everyything in the house was working, but that did not matter to us. The sleepingrooms are spacious and there was enough space for the four of us (i would not recommend it for more people!) and coming back from our daily trips soon felt like coming home. Yew Tree Cottage made our trip to south england something very special and we had wonderful holidays.

    Very, very noisy as on main road, dangerous to get out. No proper dog walks. The cottage itself beautiful but so let down by the cleanliness, it was disgusting. Owner had not taken on board any previous comments.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; We are sorry if you did not enjoy the cottage. The main road can be busy at times. There is access to public footpaths just across the road next to the bus stop and is sign posted, and it will take you to Breamore and the old bridge over the main river Avon. The Cottage is cleaned after every guest visit and we are sorry if Housekeeping missed anything.

    Not a great location with 2 dogs as the road is so busy that they had to be take by car to find somewhere for their walks.the whole cottage was very tired and not perfectly cleaned on our arrival. The bedroom over the garage was extremely basically furnished with no tea and coffee making facilities, limited storage and bedside tables that were more suitable for the garden,very small, about 12" x 12" and wooden slatted! It could have also done with its own Hoover as to carry the one from the main cottage across the garden and up outside stairs was a little irritating. What we found most disappointing was that most of these comments had been made previously in the visitors book on numerous occasions and never acted on by the owner. Is the book ever read I wonder.

    Lovely cottage, great garden. Beautiful places to visit via car. The cottage is on a very busy road, cutting the hedges back or a mirror on the opposite side of the road might help exiting the property.

    This cottage is in a brilliant location and is very pretty period building. The garden is gorgeous. It was such a shame that it wasn’t as clean as we would have liked. We have spoken to the owner and hope that the cleaning problems have been rectified. We really enjoyed our stay and wish the owner well for the future.

    We enjoyed staying here Thank you, we like staying at other locations as to why we said no to staying here again. Knowing the neighbours cross the section is bit of a put off, not completely private. They may of used the back of the property the evening we came? Talking loudly as they went in. It’s a shame the main road is busy, had to get into the car to walk the dog. The larder was an issue to bumping our heads more then once on many occasions despite the sign saying “Mind your head” - we had a couple of little ones and the bedroom via the kitchen steps are a bit steep for them. Beautiful period cottage, very comfortable. Lovely back yard. Feeding the fish was a winner for all. Check bathroom in the house, a leak at the back of the sink? A tad expensive overall as why we gave it a 7. Would we recommend? Yes. Thank you.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; We are glad you enjoyed your stay and have spoken to the tenant adjacent regarding excess noise and they have assured us it was a one-off. The drip on the bathroom sink has been looked at and is to be repaired this Friday (15/06/18).

    This is our third visit and we have always loved the cottage although this time there were several issues that upset us; After travelling for 3 hours looking forward to a cup of tea, there was no milk left! The front of the house garden is overgrown with high weeds and looks really untidy as you turn in to the drive The first night could have been a disaster as on putting our dog out for its last toilet the dog from next door had managed to get through into the garden and approached us. The dogs ran off into the pitch darkness with a lot of noise and whelping. This could have been nasty and should not have happened . The next door neighbour was very apologetic but it really upset us and our dog!

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thanks for your reply and repeat stays with us. We are sorry there was no milk and we have spoken to the housekeeper about this. We supply wine, biscuits, tea and coffee and will now add long life milk. The hand pushed lawn mower required a repair and the ride on mower couldn’t access the front garden. This has now been resolved. The fence has been re-secured and there have been no further issues.
