For an ultra-dog-friendly property, luxuriate in this charming cottage where up to three dogs are warmly welcomed alongside their four humans. Share meals together in the stylish open-plan kitchen/diner, take a dip in the hot tub (just the humans mind!), or warm up beside the wood burner after a long walk in the beautiful New Forest. The first basket of logs are provided for the wood burner, £5 per basket thereafter.

The lovely open-plan living area is bathed in natural light. The contemporary kitchen includes luxury appliances: a juicer, bread maker and even an authentic butcher’s block. The lounge with Smart TV and Netflix is a place to relax and warm yourself beside the wood burner, your doggy pals curled up at your feet. Outside is a generous garden: a perfect playground for pets. For you, there is a hot tub, charcoal BBQ, fire pit and a children's swing set. For your doggy pals, the large lawn and outdoor shower (with dog towels, biscuits, hairdryer and shampoo) make this the ideal space for you to pamper your pooches when they finish playing.

This wonderful property has an abundance of character and style, and is ideally situated for lovers of outdoor pursuits. Located in the heart of the village of Sway, with the New Forest National Park on your doorstep, you are sure to adore exploring the many walking routes leading directly from the cottage. The village has a choice of local amenities, or visit Lymington (6 miles) with its strong maritime heritage, cobbled streets and pretty harbour, just the place for a boat trip/hire. For more of an adventure, why not take the ferry to the Isle of Wight (11 miles) where dogs travel free? For wide open spaces and open woodlands try dog-friendly Burley (7 miles) The National Motor Museum is also at Beaulieu (10 miles) where dogs are welcome in the gardens.

Fabulous little cottage which was perfect for my wife and I and two labs. Really well equipped and the garden is lovely and total dog-proofed! Hot tub was a real treat. Two pubs in the village which are only 5-10 mins walk and served very good food. All in all a super property in a great location.
