A characterful old farmhouse steeped in history. This is an ideal location for your group gatherings, with an array of facilities available to make your stay a memorable one.
This luxurious property, on the fringe of the New Forest National Park, is perfect for a large family gathering or a getaway with friends. The impressive farmhouse sleeps 12 guests and three canine companions and comes with extensive grounds for the hounds to investigate. The property is ideally located for exploring the 140 miles of tracks and footpaths that weave through the national park, as well as pottering around the intriguing medieval city of Salisbury, 10.5 miles away.
The 15th-century property proudly displays its history, with beautiful exposed beams, inglenook fireplaces and flagstone flooring all adding to its character and charm. The spacious dining room is designed for entertaining, with a large dining table to seat the whole party. Relax in the lounge after an action-packed day, with the woofers stretched out on the tiled floor in front of the cosy wood burner. From here they can also potter in and out to the rear courtyard. In the evening, challenge your fellow guests to a table tennis match in the games room or retreat to the peaceful loft snug with a good book. Vast lawns surround the property, providing plenty of space for the pups to burn off steam.
If you want to leave the car at home, set off on foot towards Hamptworth. There’s a lovely 4.7-mile route that meanders through the northern tip of the New Forest, following a path through pretty woodlands and open fields. There’s plenty for you and your four-legged pals to see and do in Salisbury. Dogs are welcome inside the cathedral on a lead, or you can enjoy a picnic on the lawns whilst admiring Britain’s tallest spire. Afterwards, stroll around the immaculate gardens of Arundells, the former home of Prime Minister Sir Edward Heath.
