This spacious house is in a great position on the edge of the New Forest and close to the airport, ideal for large groups and families to gather and celebrate.
A fairy-tale escape for group gatherings, this 19-person, three-dog retreat near Bournemouth is definitely worth writing home about. Encompassed by spacious grounds and boasting a heated outdoor swimming pool, its idyllic setting and superb catalogue of amenities will appeal to all generations. Look forward to dreamy strolls through the New Forest, hot meals in country pubs and sandy strolls along the beach and create memories you will want to repeat, year after year.
Home to five bedrooms and three bathrooms, this family home is ideal for group gatherings. In summer, make the most of the spacious grounds and outdoor pool (available between April and September) and bask in the sunshine on the terrace as ice-topped glasses clink and glisten in the sunlight. In winter, rainy afternoons will be all about relaxing in the large lounge where comfortable seating invites you in for a family movie or game of charades. As daylight fades outside, go head to head in the games room with a table football or pool tournament, before heading to the galley-style kitchen for a meal of champions. Serve plates of food around the dining room’s formal table, overlooked by patio doors, and chat away before eventually giving into tiredness and making your way to bed.
Only 8.5 miles from Bournemouth’s golden-sand beachfront and 6.5 miles from the outer fringes of the sprawling New Forest National Park, you will never have a shortage of things to see and do. Don walking boots for tree-capped strolls or ditch shoes altogether for a day at the coast, digging toes into powder-fine sand and chasing the lap of waves. For great food, nearby Ferndown is only 3.5 miles away and home to a generous range of eateries, while further away in Bournemouth there is even more choice.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
