IDYLLIC LOCATION

4 of 5
Lovely venue, very handy for New Forest walks, Lymington, and Brockenhurst. Beaches a little further afield (Mudeford), but no dramas. Very relaxing destination.

Truly amazing

5 of 5
An absolutely stunning house. Very airy, light and comfortable. We had a couple of barbeques and also able to light the fire at night when it got chilly. This house has everything that you need for a wonderful comfortable stay. Our dogs loved the direct access onto the forest which gave them many long walks! A perfect week in a perfect house.
