The ideal choice for a couples’ getaway, this stylish open-plan space has a leafy outlook from the enclosed garden and is ideal for spending your days walking, cycling or simply soaking in the hot tub.
This pretty property, situated in the peaceful village of Godshill on the edge of the New Forest National Park, is the perfect bolthole for a romantic holiday – with the pup in tow, of course! Sleeping you both in a cosy double bed with plenty of space for the hound to snooze, this detached studio chalet is an opportunity to get out and explore as well as enjoy a relaxing break away from busy life. Take a gentle walk through quiet woodland to the site of an Iron Age hill fort, which starts just half a mile away.
The property, which is adjacent to the owners’ home, is spacious and comfortable in an open-plan style. The stylish kitchen area is fresh and bright with everything you need to cook up a romantic meal and eat at the table for two, while the comfy sofa invites you to sink back in front of the Smart TV, your canine companion curled up at your feet. At bedtime, snuggle into the double bed; wake up among calming grey and yellow tones and head to the decking for an al fresco breakfast. Fire up the BBQ out here on sunny evenings or simply bubble away in the hot tub.
See if you can spot the deer in Bolderwood Deer Sanctuary (12 miles), which also has lots of walking and cycling trails to discover; bring a picnic to make a day of it. Take in the stunning features of Salisbury Cathedral (12 miles), including Britain’s tallest spire and Europe’s oldest working clock; dogs are welcome and will find water bowls by the refectory. Pay your respects to Knightwood Oak (14 miles), the largest oak tree in the New Forest, or wander the 200 acres of gardens and woodland at Exbury Gardens and Steam Railway (23 miles).
