A beautiful thatched cottage on a quiet private road overlooking the allotments on the border of Sway and Ashley.

** Prices from £350 per night **

50% deposit required within 24 hours hours of quote please to secure the dates.We cannot hold dates due to high volume of enquiries.

Separate pricing Christmas and New Year.

We are in the heart of the New Forest and a mere five minutes drive to the open forest and and coast for beautiful walks.

We run the house as part live /part let in and can cater for family groups of 4-10 guests.

Importantly we politely request that Woodside is NOT a party venue and prior to letting we ask that you please agree to this strict letting condition.

We are not a venue please for stags or hens .

**This let is for the Main house and beautiful south facing front garden **

The let does not include the annexe (Little Woodside) or the back garden which is the owner's private weekend residence when the main cottage is not let , can be let separately and has no connection with the main house,accessed by its own entrance .The owner does not live at the property when the main house is let ,to be clear

The property is new to the the lettings market after being meticulously renovated as a private residence.

We let for no more than 140 days a year as per regulations.

We book direct and will send you all booking and payment details with full confirmations on the Homeaway direct messaging .

You are assured a very high standard not found in other standard lets - even the sheets are of high quality along with the beautiful house furnishings. Designed as a luxury family home, this certainly isn't a house set up for lets and we believe that is why we have 100% positive feedback from all our lovely guests.

We have a lot of return guests and are hugely popular with those that like a bit of luxury at affordable cost and appreciate that this holiday let is of a very high standard ,not found in the area ,so very unique .The bar is set very high and we are proud of that as we would want when we go away .We get booked up for 60th and 70th birthdays gatherings and can recommend some stunning local restaurants all a short drive away .

Woodside is a beautiful, tranquil cottage and is a fabulous place to have family gatherings and wonderful dinner parties. It's a perfect base in the centre of the New Forest. Our wish is that guests really enjoy the peaceful surroundings and tranquillity of the garden. It's a wonderful home away from home, far away from the hustle and bustle of the city and you'll leave fully de-stressed!

The bedrooms in the main house are all large/kingsize and have their own individual decor. Two king on the top floor and two double with an optional luxury suite on the the second floor. There is no bedroom on the ground floor and all are either king or double beds (no singles or beds put together ) .Some share the main family bathroom and two have ensuite. We rarely let to capacity as we choose not to overfill the house.

All rooms have luxury linen provided but we don't provide towels.Towels can be provided at a charge of £5 per person if required.

Guests must bring their own cots or high chairs due to health and safety reasons.

If you have pets please check with the owner. Generally we allow one small dog to be kept in the kitchen overnight and no pets upstairs please. Charge for a small dog is £25.

It is for your sole private use.We do not provide a washing machine .

For groups of 10 (the maximum permitted) there is the option to let the private suite (a four poster super king bed, dressing room and luxury ensuite bathroom) for an extra charge of £50 per night.

Parking is for a maximum of THREE normal sized family cars and absolutely no parking in the lane as it obstructs neighbours access. This is a strict condition and any extra vehicles will be asked to be moved .A single parking space in front of the garage is reserved for the annexe and the rest is for the main house. The gates must please be shut at night to keep the clever sneaky deer out and for your privacy. Please close all windows when you go out, for security and the odd rain shower that we get on the coast!

The property has beautiful gardens designed by an award winning Hampton Court landscape gardener.

This is a new modernised thatch cottage and has all the mod cons to make your stay a very comfortable one indeed.

Family get-together

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful house, well presented and furnished. Plenty of space and ideal for our extended family get-together ranging in age from 2 months to 68 years. Location was brilliant, easy to get to the forest with lovely walks and also close to the beach , so everyone was catered for. With small children we recommend the Southbourne-Boscombe sandy beach for castle building and the walks around Brockenhurst where there is a river beach area and plenty of space for football/bicycles. We ate out at the Hare and Hounds in Sway (good pub grub). A great time was had by all.

Fantastic House and setting

  • 5 of 5

The house is really beautiful,well equipped and very nice Bedding etc.The setting is great and the front garden is a lovely suntrap. We would definitely consider going back.

Although I have awarded five stars we felt that although the house is basically clean there were quite a lot of cobwebs and the oven could do with a clean.

Owner's Response: Hi .We always say to guests that if you are not happy with anything then please let us know at the start rather than the end as I would have been happy to pop over and sort any issues and are always on call.We run a luxury let and rarely have complaints. Sadly pesky cobwebs are the luxury of living in the New Forest and we do try our best .Tis the season for the critters ! The oven is used all the time and is cleaned every week but we take note and will make sure this is addressed by our fabulous cleaner who is passionate ,as we are ,that your stay at Woodside is a perfect one .Glad you found the house otherwise to be 5 stars!

Lovely Cottage in a Great Location

  • 4 of 5

The Cottage is Very Clean, well equipped and furnished to a high standard. The Cottage is nicely situated down a quiet Lane. There is a large Tesco's nearby, Beach and many places in the New Forest to visit. Paultons park is only 1/2 Hour Drive and Southampton has Great shopping at West Quay. Food was Great at Rising Sun New Milton with Great Children's outdoor play area, The Plough Inn at Tiptoe and especially good at The Filley Inn Brockenhurst. 4 Adults and 6 Children and we all had a Lovely Time.

Friends and family weekend stay

  • 5 of 5

The cottage has been renovated to a very high spec and the description and reviews from other visitors was spot on. We found the cottage impeccably clean upon arrival and in the build up to our stay, Mike, the owner, was very helpful in answering any queries that were raised.

I would definitely recommend the cottage to a friend/relative if they were looking for a luxury cottage in a very peaceful setting.
