Enjoy a romantic break in this converted former coach house where you can relax in the private hot tub or spend your days exploring the surrounding areas.

Escape to the outer reaches of the New Forest National Park and stay in this delightful couple’s retreat that boasts quirky interiors, a private terrace and a bubbling hot tub for your sole enjoyment. The handy location means you could soon be exploring the beautiful New Forest or heading to the coast to experience Bournemouth’s cosmopolitan vibe and sandy beaches. Your afternoons will be best spent relaxing outside, or why not arrange an on-site beauty treatment for a spot of pampering. Fishing is also available nearby by prior arrangement.

Inside is comfortable and welcoming, with cosy sofas and contemporary accessories. Natural light streams in through the patio doors and lights up the lounge/kitchen/diner, creating a soothing ambience for breakfast at the table. There’s a chic kitchen that’s equipped with everything you need, and there is a shower room to complete this floor. Stairs lead up to the mezzanine-level bedroom that has sloped ceilings and a delightful double bed, just beware of reduced head height. Outside, the private terrace has a hot tub, a BBQ and garden furniture.

A 9-mile drive will bring you to Bournemouth, a bustling town that’s brimming with shops, eateries and amusements including the traditional pier, popular beach and cheerful promenade that’s lined with colourful beach huts. Active guests will adore the range of water sports on offer, and the pier has a fantastic indoor activity centre for adrenaline enthusiasts. Heading east will reward you with a plethora of cycling trails and scenic footpaths through the New Forest, so why not embark on an adventure with a pit stop for a hearty pub lunch?
