Property code: NFL59

Enjoying a delightful position on the western edge of the New Forest National Park, the property offers intimate country-style accommodation with various activities right on the doorstep, including trout fishing, cycling and walking.

Enjoying an enviable location on the western edge of the New Forest National Park, this charming cottage is perfect for couples who don’t want to leave their four-legged pal at home. Oozing character, the property is part of a previous barn conversion and situated in the pretty hamlet of North Gorley. With endless walks to discover, and a dog-friendly pub less than half a mile from the front door, holidaying hounds will waste no time in sniffing out their next adventure.

Exposed beams and traditional features can be found throughout this delightful home, making it a cosy retreat for a break for three. Fido will make a beeline for the warming wood burner in the lounge after a hard day of chasing sticks and exploring, while you can both sink down onto the inviting sofa to unwind. If you fancy a night in, you’ll find everything you need in the stylish kitchen for a romantic meal for two. The en-suite bedroom, with exposed brickwork, has been designed with your rest and relaxation in mind. Step outside through the patio doors in the lounge and enjoy your morning coffee in the rear patio area, or the pretty garden to the front, while your hound takes a wander around. There’s also a handy storage area for bikes as well.

Get out on four legs or two to follow one of the many walking and cycling trails that are on your doorstep. Head to the Moors Valley Country Park and Forest (7 miles) and ride on an authentic steam train at the Moors Valley Railway. The historic city of Salisbury (13 miles) makes for a great day trip, while those who fancy dipping a paw or toe in the sea, should head to the popular resort of Bournemouth, 16 miles away.

Lovely cottage well positioned in the north of the New Forest. Equipped to a very high standard with more than enough equipment etc for two. The local pub, The Royal Oak was excellent and we enjoyed some great meals there. More than happy to recommend Jenny Wrens and may at some point return to see those places we missed on this visit.

A very nice well appointed cottage in a quiet location with a secure garden making it ideal for dogs. A very good pub - The Royal Oak - serving good food and ales is only a few minutes walk away and there is a well stocked farm shop and cafe about a mile away. The location is ideal for exploring the Forest.
