It is just a short stroll from the historic High Street with lovely pubs, shops and cafes. Nearby are lots of walks including the riverside park with its fishing and children's play area. Lovely and cosy for 2 or why not bring the family or come with friends. Amble Back is a real home from home, the contemporary furnishings offer modern convenience within a character cottage dating back to the 1880s. Snuggle up watching the flat screen freeview TV or a DVD. Relax on our comfy sofa or rocking chair whilst listening to your music through our Bluetooth speaker. After dinner why not read a book or play one of the games you will find on the shelves. The beautiful handmade kitchen is fully equipped with a full size cooker, dishwasher, fridge freezer and microwave. There is colourful Orla Keily crockery in the cupboards with lots of cookware should you choose to eat in at the table for four. To get you started we include tea, coffee, and other larder items free for your use as well as the practical things, washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets, toilet rolls etc. If you prefer to eat out there is a choice of pubs and cafes all within easy walking distance. Alternatively, you can drive a short distance to the delightful New Forest pubs or the numerous restaurants, cafes and pubs in Ringwood or Salisbury. The kitchen opens into a small porch area, ideal for coats and boots. This leads onto the patio with a dining table for four. There is a lawn for relaxing with a couple of comfy loungers provided. We have games for the children and a BBQ for those alfresco meals. A mature ash tree provides part of the garden with welcome dapled shade in the summer. The garden is fenced. On the first floor is the seaside family bathroom with a shower and bath. Luxury towels are included in your stay. The spacious double bedroom has a comfortable kingsize bed with feather duvet and pillows (synthetic if preferred), fresh cotton linen compliments the bright décor. There are 2 wardrobes and ample shelf space for your clothes. A hair dryer and hot water bottle will be found in the wardrobe. Ascend to the second floor to find the fun attic den with 2 single beds that can be pushed together. With lots of alcoves and funky lighting the room is a delight to children and adults alike. The rooflight looks out over the garden, the beautiful ash tree and stunning sunsets. Situated on a side road there is on street parking less than 5 meters away. We also provide a permit for the car park 5 minutes walk away which is valid across all New Forest car parks, making a great saving on parking charges for the whole holiday. Amble Back books up fast because we offer all you need for a great holiday. So don't delay, book now! We are sorry but this cottage is not suitable for those with mobility difficulties. Please be aware that the stairs to the attic room are steep. Smoking is not permitted anywhere at the property. Prices are set until 03.01.20. For prices after this date please contact us as the default price shown will not be correct. Do contact us for more information. More

About the neighbourhood
Fordingbridge is a pretty town situated on the River Avon and on the edge of the New Forest. With lots of lovely walks nearby too it is perfect for those who like things close at hand but also easy access to the countryside. The New Forest is delight with its wild ponies, cattle, deer and, in autumn, pigs. Each season is different, from the greens of spring, glorious purple heather in summer, the golds in autumn and, if you are lucky, beautiful white snow in winter. Children and adults love the New Forest Water park, just 5 minutes in the car. Lots of things to do including water skiing, kayaking and a huge amount of fun on the large inflatables! Close by you have the market town of Ringwood and mediaeval city of Salisbury with an awe inspiring cathedral. The beach is 30 minutes awa...
Getting around
There is a good bus service south to Ringwood and Bournemouth and north through Downton to Salisbury. In Ringwood you can connect to buses across the Forest and in the summer the tour bus comes through Fordingbridge offering direct access all across the Forest in an open top bus. There are lots of lovely local walks direct from the door or the Forest is a short drive or cycle ride away.
