Perks for the Parents

This country cottage is 5 minutes from Lyndhurst in the heart of the New Forest, and includes characterful children’s rooms, direct forest access and a private path to Limewood. Well set up for a family and only 90 minutes from London, it is perfect for long weekend break in the countryside. Open the back door to find a safe open space for kids; put wellies on and walk out of the back gate and explore the New Forest, filled with New Forest ponies, cows and pigs in the autumn. Animals are allowed to roam free in the forest throughout the year. A welcome basket is always provided and for an emergency dinner, there is a farm shop across the way, and Limewood is very close by (book ahead for dinners). The hotel also offers beauty treatments and a gym for non residents.

Why Kids Love it

The cottage is great for all ages. To make a stay easy, plenty of items are provided, including toys galore, DVDs, Apple TV, TV, WiFi, a wooden crib, a travel crib and outdoor toys. There is an outdoor pool May-September. The kids bedroom is a loft with 4-floor height single beds so there is no worrying about smaller kids rolling out of them. There are horses on site - owned by the hostess, who is available 24/7 - with pony grooming available for an extra fee. Additional cleaning and babysitting can be arranged for a fee. There is a huge barn above the stables which will be closed off to make room for a hang out/games room.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 2 nights (with an extra fee of £100), 3 nights preferred. Stair gates are available on request for the top and bottom of the staircase, which has a steep tread. Fire guards also available. The whole property is gated and the outdoor pool is also gated. Well-behaved and fully trained short-haired dogs are welcome but are not allowed upstairs, or downstairs bedroom or on furniture unless covered by one of the 'doggy' blankets. A doggy hotel is coming in 2018. Limewood Hotel is a neighbor. Wood is provided for the wood burner. Parking is available for multiple vehicles on the lane or in front of the house. Car rental recommended.

About the Location

The property is 5 minutes from Lyndhurst in the heart of the New Forest. Lyndhurst has shops, cafés and grocery stores, while nearby villages Beaulieu and Brockenhurst (famed for its restaurant The Pig) are stunning. There are pubs in the forest. Lymington and the coast are 30 minutes’ drive away for fish and chips and day trips to the beach. Peppa Pig World is 20 minutes’ drive away and there is an array of petting farms, animal sanctuaries and kid-friendly attractions within a 10-minute drive. It is 90 minutes from London by car with regular trains coming into Brockenhurst or Ashurst daily from central London too. Both stations are within a 10-15 minute drive from the house. Heathrow is 1 hour 30 minutes away with Gatwick 1 hour 50 minutes away; Southampton is 25 minutes away.

Accommodation Details

This 5-bedroom, 4-bathroom renovated cottage is set over 2 floors and measures approximately 220 sqm. The ground floor has a hallway, open kitchen-diner with a snug and large wood burner, utility room and WC. There is a wheelchair accessible downstairs bedroom with high iron-framed bed and ensuite shower/WC (also wheelchair accessible). Double doors from this bedroom open to the small, lightly heated outdoor pool. Upstairs, there is a large master bedroom with open ensuite bath/shower room, plus 2 further double bedrooms (both with double beds) and a kids room with 4 floor-level single beds, a WC, a shower wet room and a family bathroom. The gated back garden includes a homemade sandpit, homemade tree swing and a trampoline. At the back of this garden are the stables and another snug (which will be renovated into a self-contained 2 person abode). There are 3 acres of paddocks where the public right of way leads you past into the back of Limewood Hotel garden. One of the stables will be renovated into a doggy hotel with cameras to allow dog owners to bring dogs there and for them to feel safe.

Style Notes

Modern cottage. With clean, simple lines with grey, colourful accents and reclaimed wood, the house full of charm. Among custom ites, the sofa was made by a friend of the owner and is blue/lilac and in faux suede (great for spills) while pillows vary in pattern and color. Bedrooms are simple, clean and white with wooden floors, grey accents and color pop cushions. We love the matching huge recycled glass kitchen island and smeg fridge, the wonderful children’s loft and the green iron-framed bed.

New Forest, Hampshire

Wild ponies and Peppa Pig

Known for its wild ponies, heathlands and forest trails, the New Forest is a family-friendly area of southern England perfect for a countryside break. Spot old cars and ancient gardens at Beaulieu, explore by horseback or spend sunny days at sandy beaches nearby. Paultons Park, a theme park encompassing Peppa Pig Land, is also just a short drive away.
