A romantic couple’s retreat can be had here at this cosy cottage for two, ideally located in the pretty village of Sandleheath on the fringes of the New Forest.

This delightful cottage is ideally located for couples to explore all the South Coast has to offer, from the wild ponies of the New Forest to a day trip to Salisbury. Conveniently located next to the village post office and shop and under 0.25 miles to the nearest pub for a relaxing break. The New Forest offers a variety of locations from scenic bike rides to canoeing on the beautiful Beaulieu River. The most romantic day must be spent in the village of Lover nearby, known for being one of the most romantic villages in the UK.

The open-plan lounge/diner is a wonderful place to retreat to and relax after a day exploring the wonderful sights on offer on the South Coast; settle down in front of the TV and enjoy a cosy night in. The kitchen sits upon the mezzanine complete with an electric oven and hob, small fridge with ice compartment, microwave and washing machine. It’s a perfect place for guests to cook up a lovely meal of an evening to enjoy indoors or out in the lovely courtyard. The bedroom is located beyond a partition wall from the lounge and houses a double bed. The shower room with shower and WC completes this space.

A courtyard complete with a stylish bistro set is a great place to sit outside and enjoy al fresco dining in the evening or take a tranquil morning coffee. It overlooks the pretty willow tree in the lawned garden. Parking for the property is located at the front next to the post office.

Very welcoming hosts with a fridge of extra goodies for a full cooked breakfast and more, even treats for our dog. Small and cosy with everything we needed for a short stay, excellent location for both New Forest and south coast.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Old post Office Cottage. Everything that could possibly be needed was provided in the accommodation. Owners were friendly & available if needed at all. Also there was an excellent, very generous welcome food package provided, which was really appreciated. Thank you

This is a lovely (small but cosy) cottage. The owner is very friendly and helpful. The welcome pack was amazing and even our dog was made to feel very welcome. We would not hesitate to book again.

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.
