The perfect bolthole for a relaxing break, this cottage with wood burner occupies a rural position overlooking fields, has additional space for children and easy access to Beaulieu and Bucklers Hard

This prestigious area is home to some of the New Forests best loved attractions, including the motor museum, abbey and palace house in Beaulieu, or perhaps explore the rich maritime history of the region and take a visit to Bucklers Hard, which is set beside the river. Local amenities can be found in the centre of Beaulieu village and there is a wide network of walks and cycling routes running nearby, enabling you to easily explore the picturesque landscape that this area is known for. Why not get out on the water and take a river cruise or head inland and explore one of the many attractive villages nearby

The property is accessed via a long, shared gravel driveway. Adjacent to the owners home yet with privacy assured, the entrance to this charming cottage is via a small path from the parking area. Once inside you are met with a pretty open-plan kitchen/diner, which has a gas oven and hob, microwave, fridge, dishwasher and Nespresso coffee machine. Heading further into the property you will find a spacious super king-size bedroom that has been decorated with care. Just opposite is a stylish bathroom with shower over bath and WC. Stairs lead from an inner hallway to the first floor, and the lounge. This characterful room has vaulted ceilings, a wood burner and smart TV. This inviting space is the perfect place to relax after a day spent exploring as it has a sofa bed and an additional single cabin with porthole (each suitable for a child). A door leads from the lounge area to a balcony with wonderful views over the countryside. A useful utility space can also be found in this room, which houses the washing machine.

Heading outside via the kitchen door you will find the garden. There is an area to dine on the lawn and parking for two vehicles on the adjacent gravel driveway.
