Overview

About the property

6 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms And Large Garden In Popular New Forest Village

A truly stunning Picturesque New Forest Cottage in the heart of the village of Woodgreen. Centrally located with a pub and village store in close proximity but also only a short walk to the Village Green and open forest beyond. This 300-year-old thatched cottage has all the charm you would expect of a period property but also with all the modern conveniences of a newly refurbished and decorated property. In addition, recently completed a new wooden conservatory, new ground floor wet-room, and a new double carport with a playroom above.

On the ground floor, there is one double bedroom with an en-suite wet room. Ideal for disabled access. A large kitchen/diner opening out onto the new conservatory an outdoor seating area ideal for al fresco eating; a lounge with a wood burner and 40' television and a dining room with seating for up to 12.

On the first floor, there is a master bedroom with an en-suite shower room, a cloakroom, a family bathroom with corner bath, separate shower and window seat, and one twin bedroom and one double bedroom. On the second floor, there are one double bedroom and one twin bedroom with a secret staircase.

Outside there is a very large mature garden with an abundance of shrubs and flowers. PLEASE NOTE A small shallow stream runs through the garden at the rear. A trampoline and barbeque are also provided. We have now added a summer house to the rear of the garden to enjoy the afternoon sun.

To the front of the property, there is parking for up to 6 cars, we have constructed a double carport now offering a play/hobby room above the carport which is approached via stairs at the rear. This has a table tennis table, table football, and electronic dart board.

Love Lane is a private track that provides vehicular access to two other properties. Turning right out of Love Lane takes you to the Village Green and open Forest beyond. The Horse and Groom public house can be found at the end of this lane. The community run village store which also has a post office and small coffee shop can be found further along the main road running through the village. The store sells a wide range of locally sourced produce and the pub has an excellent selection of beers and food.

About Richard Oliver

We own a large selection of properties throughout the uk which we let and manage. We take great pride in providing high quality accommodation to ensure you have a great holiday.

Richard Oliver purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Richard Oliver chose Fordingbridge

This property was acquired to improve the range and type of holiday accommodation we have available in the New Forest National Park. The convenient location of this typical New Forest thatched cottage in one of the Forest's most sought after villages provides an ideal opportunity to sample what New Forest living is all about. It is also rare to find a cottage of this size which can accommodate large groups in spacious surroundings.

What makes this cottage unique

300 years old but also recently refurbished with all the modern conveniences that you would expect. Combine that will a short stroll to the village pub and store or out in the Forest and you really do have the best of all worlds.

Recently added: New ground floor wet room, New conservatory off from the Kitchen, and new double garage with play room and games room.

Guestbook comments from the manager

What a truly lovely setting, to see in 2018 with our friends. The cottage is beautiful, homely and welcoming, the gardens are gorgeous & we will thoroughly recommend this chocolate box cottage to all our friends. This was our first visit to the 'Forest' and we loved it! We had a lovely meal in the horse & groom and recommend Moors Valley Country Park for a lovely day out with the kids. The games room was good fun.



Thank you, David & Katy.

Amazing Cottage

Wow, such a lovely cottage for our annual family holiday. Spacious rooms, comfy furniture and beds and a lovely fitted kitchen. The garden is very pretty and the games room was great fun for all.

Spacious family friendly character property

  • 5 of 5

Well equipped and spacious and true to the property details.

With atrocious weather over Easter the games room with table tennis and table football proved to be a great hit. It was good to have the shop and pub in the village within a short walk from the property.

Beautiful Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed a wonderful week before Christmas at Beck Cottage. It was a large group of all ages from 64 down to 18months. It suited us all. A marvellous Games Room for the older children.

The cottage itself was immaculate and extemely tastefully presented. Also, lovely location.

Beautiful thatched cottage

  • 5 of 5

Woodgreen is a beautiful village with a local pub the Horse and Groom. Beck Cottage is stunning, it was clean and very comfortable, everything was provided that you could possibly need. The younger people in our party thoroughly enjoyed the games room. It was a lovely place to have a family gathering.

Lovely thatched cottage right next to a pub with garden

  • 5 of 5

Cottage was spacious and well laid out, lots of fun areas for kids inside and out. We stayed there as 3 families with kids and did not feel cramped. Easy access to New Forest and to Morres Valley country park. We had a great time and would recommend to others.
