  • Many walking and cycling routes to explore from your doorstep
Property code: 49266

This delightful property is set in the heart of the New Forest National Park, surrounded by vast open spaces with stunning views, designated footpaths and cycle trails where you can see donkeys, New Forest ponies and often wild deer

Hidden down a quiet cul-de-sac, this one-bedroom bungalow is the perfect little retreat for a couple and their four-legged friend. The property occupies a corner plot, with a wrap-around enclosed garden providing lots of snuffling potential, as well as a sunny patio for those laid-back morning coffees. And when you’re ready to explore – there are endless forest walks on the doorstep and the Dorset coast around 18 miles away.

The bungalow has a modern, simple style, with an open-plan living space including a kitchen with dining area, and a lovely dual-aspect lounge area which is a real sun-trap. Open up the French doors and let Fido mooch while you put your feet up with a cuppa – or enjoy a luxurious nap in the bedroom off the lounge. The enclosed garden has a shed with storage space for bikes, plus a BBQ for those summer evenings when you want to seek out every last bit of the sunshine.

Those on early morning dog walking duties won’t have to go far, with beautiful woodland walks straight from the house, complete with inquisitive wild ponies and donkeys. Alternatively, hop in the car 18 miles to the coast and enjoy watching the morning sun glinting on the rippling sea before the crowds arrive. There are ample boutiques and galleries to potter around in the local towns and villages – including Fordingbridge, just 2 miles away, and more retail therapy a little further in Bournemouth, 17 miles. Spend a pleasant few hours strolling around the dog-friendly grounds of Highcliffe Castle, also about 17 miles away, and for a real treat, take afternoon tea from the tearooms on the lawn.
 

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

This was a lovely little annex in a great location. It has a lovely homely feel to it and a pub across the road. The annex I spacious enough and has most things you need. The enclosed garden is great for if you have dogs and it was lovely watching cows and donkeys walk past every morning.

Such a lovely property. Out exploring most of the day but it was lovely to come back to a cosy cottage. Our two Labradors loved the garden and it was nice for it to be secure. Handy having a pub so close by and the visiting donkeys made it special.

Beautiful place, so tastefully decorated, lovely soft towels, very soft warm bed. If your stuck indoors due to the weather you will be comfortable. So close to walks, and a pub serving lovely food just across the road. Fantastic safe, beautiful garden. I have a lurcher and was worried he could escape, no worries about that when I got there.

We enjoyed three nights in this delightful holiday home. Garden was fenced securely - we have two small dogs. Accommodation was really great and the setting with a pub over the road too, was just ideal. Lots of walks directly from the property into New Forest. The owners live next door and made us very welcome.

Great annex - although attached to the owners home, it was very private. It is spotlessly clean, with everything you need for a week's holiday. The location is brilliant if you want to walk along & through the New Forest Commons - the donkeys and ponies even visit the gates of the property - wonderful. Also good location for visits to Salisbury . WRead moree had a couple of days on the beach at Mudeford. Forresters Arms pub is across the road from annex, but no noise - serves good food. Hide
