About the property

1 Bedroom Rural Cottage.

Welcome to Dairy Cottage, a luxury refurbished cosy one bedroom cottage that has been converted fom an old dairy, sleeping 2 plus small child. This lovely cottage is equipped to a high standard, oozing charm and comfort and offering a wood burner for the winter months. An ideal romantic retreat in the countryside with easy access to forest walks, beautiful beaches and quaint local towns and villages. If dates not available please see our other properties listed - Barn cottage and Caxton House.

From the entrance porch, which has a log and boot store, a door takes you to the hallway with one step taking you up to a wooden floored open plan kitchen/diner/living room with full sized cooker, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, microwave, ample kitchen units, television dvd.

Also leading from the hallway is a door leading to a generous sized light bedroom with a lovely hand painted kingsize bed and ensuite shower room plus a walk in wardrobe. We can also add a cot if required or a small futon to sleep a child. Also provided is a television/dvd, ipod dock, wifi and linen and towels. Also washing machine available.

All offering excellent pubs/restaurants and coffee houses. Bournemouth coast's spectactular beaches are an easy 25 minute drive, the Jurassic coast within easy reach and the ancient city of Salisbury with its beautiful cathedral is well worth a visit.

Lovely cottage in the English countryside

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Dairy Cottage for a week plus a day as we got caught in the Beast from the East Heather and Dennis were perfect hosts even providing us with dinner fixings when we were snowed in. Cottage is clean and conveniently located for exploring the New Forest area. Would definitely come back again!

Lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

Peaceful and relaxing. The cottage was spotless. The owners are happy to accommodate you for a few days as long as there is availability, so don’t insist that you book a week or two, which is ideal for our needs. Would love to come back.

Great location and facilities

  • 4 of 5

Had a lovely few nights. Was a great location to easily access attractions in the area and was the perfect size for 2 adults + an 18 months old. Little touches from Heather on arrival were greatly appreciated. Would definitely return.
