Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

This is an absolutely amazing place to stay for a holiday. The property is very well presented, perfectly furnished and exceptionally clean. The owners are lovely, very welcoming and helpful. The grounds of this property are stunning and so tranquil. The location of the property is also ideal with a short stroll into Burley Village but just far enough away to be peaceful and quiet. We will definitely be returning here with our two small dogs.

The village of Burley is in the centre of the New Forest in beautiful countryside with many interesting walks through the forest with an abundance of flora and fauna and an excellent area for bird watching. Several stables for horse riding are nearby and a golf course very close. Bicycles can be hired in the village.

A day's visit to the Isle of Wight ferry is fun, the boat leaves from Lymington which is about eight miles from Durmast. The beaches are within six miles drive. Christchurch Town with the Abbey and harbour is about 5 mile's drive. Bournemouth and Southampton are equidistant, about 12 miles where there are larger shops, theatres and the Winter Gardens for music in Bournemouth.

There are many lovely gardens to visit such as Mottesfont Abbey, Exbury Gardens, Hilliers, Cranborne Manor. Macpennys, Spinners and many others.
