A stylish cottage located in the heart of the New Forest, a great base for the family to explore the nearby attractions.

This historic cottage, handed down through the generations within the same family, is ideally located in the village of Sway to explore the beauty of the New Forest and all it has to offer, which can be done via train from Sway Station through to Bournemouth and other New Forest locations. It is situated within easy reach of the village centre that boasts a wonderful selection of local amenities. You can enjoy a variety of outdoor pursuits from this cottage to include walking and cycling, with many routes to choose from. If it’s an action-packed day out at a theme park you are looking for, then a day trip to nearby Paulton’s Park home of Peppa Pig world is a must. Also, check out the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu for a fun day out.

Step into this beautifully restored cottage where you are welcomed into one of the oldest cottages in Sway - the owner has sympathetically renovated to include some cosy touches. The snug is the first room you find where views of the garden can be enjoyed, a Smart TV can also be found here. Head on through into the lounge/dining room where another Smart TV is located, with a dining table large enough to sit the whole group. Step into the light and bright kitchen equipped with an electric oven and hob, fridge, freezer, microwave, washing machine and dishwasher. Here, you can access the rear patio and lawned garden. A ground-floor shower room with WC completes this level. Head up to the first floor where you will first discover the double bedroom boasting views out over the front garden, featuring built-in wardrobes - opposite is where the shower room with WC is situated. Beyond, at the end of the hallway, are the final two bedrooms, a twin bedroom with Smart TV and the king-size bedroom that also boasts views over the front garden.

The cottage benefits beautiful lawned gardens at the rear of the cottage, while a pergola covers the patio located just off the kitchen. There is off-road parking for one car at the front of the house with additional parking available roadside on a first-come-first-served basis.

Great place to stay with a large garden for play. We found Baytree cottage a very comfortable, spottlessly clean and well equipped house where we stayed with our party of 5 for a week. Sway is a quiet place but really good to explore the surroundings by foot, bike or car, and to come home to at the end of the day. Very friendly neighbours as well.

Fantastic cottage. Spotlessly clean on arrival. Nice welcome gifts. Ideal location in a charming village. Well equipped. Everything looks very new. Very large garden with covered pergola.

We had a fantastic time here and could not recommend the cottage highly enough. It is cosy, very clean and equipped with everything you could possibly need. The garden as well is huge and nice for sitting out. Sway is a lovely friendly village and the local pubs served excellent food. Great location too for exploring.
