Holiday Rental House
The cottage is on a country lane with no houses in front or behind. Our front garden looks out directly on to the New Forest and a secluded back garden overlooks fields where horses graze. Ponies, donkeys, pigs and deer are often to be seen outside the front gate. The cottage is situated a mile from the popular village of Brockenhurst in the heart of the New Forest, where the main line station connects London and Bournemouth. The cottage was awarded the prestigious 5 STAR GOLD award by the English Tourist Board in May 2015. This is the highest award that it is possible for a holiday cottage to obtain . In 2013 and 2014, it was extended with greatly improved facilities. The cottage has been fully refurnished with state of the art equipment such as a flat screen TV, range cooker, new bath...The cottage is on a country lane with no houses in front or behind.
