Property code: 78573

This peaceful property, situated in the village of Godshill on the edge of the New Forest National Park, is ideal for families or couples that want to enjoy a relaxing holiday in beautiful surroundings and want their loyal hounds to experience it too. Sleeping four across two tranquil bedrooms and with space for up to two dogs to snooze, it won’t be long before you’re up and about ready to lap up the stunning walks and attractions available right from the front door. Head out of the back gate and explore the heathland with your hounds.

The property, which is adjacent to the owners’ home but with full privacy, has a contemporary yet comfortable style. The huge kitchen has sleek units with everything you need to cook up a tasty meal, while soft lighting and calming grey tones in the lounge/diner beckon you to sink back with your feet up on the sofa or chair after a long day out. Have a great night’s sleep in one of the bedrooms; wake up among charming pastel colours and head out to the garden with your morning coffee and watch the kids and pups play. Sizzle up a BBQ out here in the summer, or simply bubble in the hot tub.

There’s something for everyone in this fabulous part of the country. Visit the Moors Valley Country Park (11.5 miles) where there are lots of walking trails, including interactive ones for children. Dogs are welcome at the Bolderwood Deer Sanctuary (12 miles), as are they at the River Bourne Community Farm (13 miles) where the focus is on sustainability and ecologically sound practices. If it’s slithery scales that you go barking mad for rather than fluffiness, visit the New Forest Reptile Centre (16 miles) to see adders, grass snakes, lizards and more.

The cottage is perfect for peace and quiet, and it is very well situated for a variety of lovely walks The welcome pack was outstanding, including home-made marmalade and a delicious cake. The owners accommodated our needs very thoughtfully. The "Fighting Cocks" is a short walk away, but there are two exceptional pubs just a few minutes' drive awayRead more: the "Horse and Groom" and the "Royal George". The New Forest is a magical place, but its many animals need to be treated with respect and care. Hide

This was our first visit to the New Forest and this cottage is perfectly located to explore the area. Having access to the hot tub was a lovely treat and our dogs enjoyed access to the yard. The owners were friendly and knowledgeable of the local area. I would highly recommend a visit!

Set in a perfect location for exploring the New Forest. We travelled with my 14 year old son and there was plenty to keep him occupied. We enjoyed beautiful walks, bike rides and paddle boarding on the Avon from Fordingbridge. We had a glorious beach day at Boscombe and visits to Beaulieu and the Historic Docks at Portsmouth - the New Forest water Read morepark was also a big hit. Lots of local pubs serving food to choose from and the bonus of a hot tub to relax in at the end of the day. 100% recommend. Hide
