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.
