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?

The owner provided a folder with an extensive selection of walks and historical references in the Forest which was interesting, clearly put a lot of time and effort into that.

Location

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

Although it's just three hours from London and the South East, Dorset feels like a world away from the hubbub of the city. This gem of a county offers the very best of rural England: magnificent coastal scenery, vast sandy beaches, rolling hills, charming villages, country pubs, stately homes and medieval castles.

Take time to explore the dramatic and diverse coastline. Stretching 95 miles from East Devon to Poole, the Jurassic Coast has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and is the only natural phenomenon in England to achieve this status. Here, visitors can uncover Earth's fascinating history whilst enjoying unspoilt views over superb beaches, many of which welcome canine companions too. From the iconic rural rock arch at Durdle Door to the endless sandy expanses of Studland, Dorset has it all.

Why not head to Lyme Regis, classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty? Like much of West Dorset, it has an old-world ambience and offers excellent fossil hunting opportunities. Or head east to discover the beauty of Lulworth and the vibrant seaside resort of Swanage.

Steeped in history and with a certain quintessential charm, Dorset's glorious countryside is peppered with small towns and villages which are well worth a visit. Many are graced with fine buildings, immortalised in the books of Thomas Hardy, a Dorset-born novelist and poet. For more energetic visitors, footpaths and cycleways reveal the county's hidden secrets with the coast always close at hand for those who love the water.
