This property offers comfortable accommodation and a private garden. Set in a leafy environment ideally placed for exploring the many attractions to be found in Dorset and Hampshire.

Just 3 miles from the New Forest National Park, this property is a great base from which to explore both Dorset and Hampshire. Sleeping two, this studio-style annexe is the perfect romantic retreat with airy accommodation, plenty of homely touches and an enclosed patio for candlelit dinners. With a plethora of walking and cycling routes nearby, explore the national park, the local towns and villages and the Jurassic Coast before returning to the villa for a cosy night in.

Bright, airy and homely, this good-sized annexe is a fantastic romantic retreat for two. Rustle up delicious meals together in the spacious traditional kitchen, which contains everything you could need and opens onto the parking area. In the evenings, curl up together on the sofa in the lounge area, which opens through patio doors onto the private terrace. An arch leads through to the inviting king-size bedroom, which also opens onto the garden, perfect for summer mornings spent listening to birdsong. Venturing outside, the enclosed patio with garden furniture is backed by forest, creating a peaceful haven for al fresco dining.

Set in a leafy location overlooking the forest, the village of Ashley Heath is the ideal base for touring the area. Explore the picturesque national park, famous for its resident ponies, rare birds and fantastic walking and cycling routes. Nearby Ringwood (3 miles) and Wimborne (8.5 mies) both offer a good selection of shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs, perfect for enjoying a romantic meal out. Heading south, the Jurassic Coast is well worth a visit, with the much-photographed Durdle Door (32 miles) and Lulworth Cove (31 miles), the popular coastal town of Swanage (30 miles) and the scenic South West Coast Path.

Super place to stay. Everything available for a relaxed break. Warm and cozy, even in mid winter! Central to numerous activities/"visits" etc. (Caution! Much care needed pulling out onto 40mph road.)
