Enjoy a romantic break in this converted former coach house where you can relax in the private hot tub or spend your days exploring the surrounding areas.

This stylish cottage is perfectly equipped for a party of two but you’re still more than welcome to bring your dog along for the ride. Only 4 miles from Ringwood and Christchurch, and only 6 miles from the nearest dog-friendly beach, both you and the pooch will find plenty to do in the beautiful, bright county of Dorset.

The fresh interior of neutral shades, enhances with modern, bright flashes of secondary colours, creates a comfortable and functional space for two visitors plus hound. A compact kitchen houses everything you need for cooking the dinner, and a small dining area provides the perfect space to sit down for a romantic meal. Leading into the lounge area offers a loveseat sofa and TV for unwinding at the end of a long day. A staircase leads up to a mezzanine-cum-double bedroom, with comfortable space for two. The open-plan living space is flooded in light thanks to a bedroom skylight and wide French doors, which lead out to an enclosed courtyard. Here you’ll find a private hot tub, charcoal BBQ and outdoor dining set for al fresco dining. You will also have access to a shared, enclosed garden space for ideal canine freedom.

A short 4 miles away you’ll find the market town of Ringwood and the harbour side town of Christchurch, both packed with independent shops and cafes for you to peruse. A dog-friendly beach can be found 6 miles away for fun and frolics. Heading back in the opposite direction, the New Forest national park is 16 miles away and offers a multitude of walking and cycling routes, and dogs are welcome providing they’re OK with the park’s well-loved population of wild ponies, deer and other wildlife.

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

The fizz, cake and dog treats were a really nice touch. It probably the best dog friendly place we've visited, it even had a "boot room" where we could shower off our muddy pup! Some lovely walks around and the whole flat was beautifully cosy.
