  • Ponies and donkeys can be seen freely roaming from your window

Property code: 29370

Just a 2 minute walk from this well positioned bungalow will take you directly to open heathland of the New Forest  Within walking distance to local amenities such as village pub, shops and tea rooms. Benefiting from enclosed garden and seating.

The pretty woodlands and stunning coastline of the New Forest have been drawing visitors for many years and it's easy to see why. With miles of peaceful paths and exciting trails, it's a wonderful place to walk, cycle or ride through, or you could even take an open-top bus tour! This charming detached bungalow is perfectly situated for you to enjoy all this and much more. Offering four guests and two canine companions a warm and welcoming home-from-home, this property is perfect for families or couples looking for a relaxing break.

A spacious entrance hall provides an ideal place to sit and put on boots, coats and leads before heading out for the day's adventures. There is a comfortable and cosy open-plan lounge with deep squishy armchairs nestled around a cosy wood burner. The adjoining dining area and sunroom is home to an additional seating area and offers a relaxing place to curl up for an hour or so with a steaming mug of coffee and a good book. The two double bedrooms are both good sizes and provide plenty of space to stretch out and relax. Outside, you'll find a pretty garden area that Fido will love exploring, along with a netted water feature.

The small village of Frogham is less than half a mile from the front door and can be found on the edge of the New Forest National Park. It's home to a dog-friendly local pub serving delicious, locally sourced food, and there's plenty of opportunity for countryside walks within half a mile. Further afield, the town of Fordingbridge, known as the northern gateway to the New Forest, is just 2 miles from the property and offers visitors a good selection of shops, cafes and restaurants. Or let Fido take the lead on the walk from Godshill, 2 miles north, towards the site of an Iron Age hill fort, stopping afterwards at the village's dog-friendly pub.

We spent Christmas at Frogham Cross. We have stayed at many places in the New Forest before but this property topped the lot. From the welcome hamper to towels for the dog all our needs were met. We had some lovely walks in the forest with our dog and each walk finished with a stop at the Foresters Arms just 50 yards from the property. Val and DaveRead more were perfect hosts, they responded almost immediately to a couple of minor queries and made us feel that their home for our week was our home. Hide
