Welcome to The New Forest! A unique environment of outstanding natural beauty in every season. The ancient commoning rights of the residents provides the iconic backdrop of free roaming ponies, donkeys, cattle, sheep and pigs, with wild deer in abundance. Come and experience it for yourself.
We are located within The New Forest National Park. Indeed, we are lucky to sit on the northern boarders of “The Crown Lands” – the original Royal Hunting Ground established by William I in 1079. Located inside the cattle grid area of The Forest, we are constantly delighted to see the ponies with their foals, cattle, pigs, sheep and donkeys feeding outside our gate. We also welcome the native fallow deer into our paddocks – nature’s own lawnmowers!
From your cottage, you can walk straight into The New Forest. There are numerous walks direct from the door, ranging from a gentle stroll before dinner, through a walk to one of The Forest pubs, to a full days hike around the beautiful streams and enclosures of The Forest. For the cyclist, you can head out from the cottage and experience the wonders of The New Forest on two wheels. For those who enjoy off road cycling, it is easy to join a network of woodland and moorland gravel paths, with bridleways offering extended cycling. For road cycling fans, there are frequent races passing our front door, paying testament to the quality, enjoyment and challenges of cycling the quiet roads. We look forward to welcoming you!
