Lovely cottage & garden

Overview

Property

Updated: 28-Nov-2016
3 bedroom, 2 bathroom cottage located in village within New Forest National Park

Thimble Cottage sleeps up to 6 guests plus 2 babies.

It is a delightful holiday cottage that provides the best of old world charm combined with modern convenience, offering spacious accomodation with character and style.

This pretty 17th century thatched cottage is furnished to a high standard with 2 living rooms and plenty of comfortable seating.

It is our family holiday home and as we regularly use the cottage with our 3 young children we have lots of things young children require including toys which reduces what you need to bring. We also have a well equipped kitchen so cooking at the cottage is easy and we also have need a bean to cup coffee machine. There is a dinning table which seats six and two high chairs.

The garden is large and fully enclosed with two seating areas and a gas BBQ.

Located just north of Lyndhurst we are just 5 mins drive from Paultons Park, the home of Peppa Pig world and a 25 min drive (at the right time of day) from the beach at Mudeford. Obviously there are also all the activites of The Forest itself including walks, cycle paths and pubs.

Please note due to insurance restrictions the wood burner is not available for guests to use.

About the Owner

We see the cottage as our second home which we share with the guests who book to stay. We orignally bought it pre children so we could escape London at the weekends and enjoy the outdoors. We now have a 4 year old and 2 year old twins who also love the cottage and The Forest. This means the cottage is very suitable for families with children but also for grown ups.

Very comfortable and well equipped

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely property, with plenty of appliances to make the stay comfortable, we did a lot of local produce cooking, both indoor and on the excellent BBQ . The cottage is a good size with lots of lounge and kitchen lounge seating. Everything was provided we needed. The garden like the cottage is large and lots of different areas to relax in and have that well-earned glass of wine.

It’s well situated for getting around the New Forest and other areas, so if feeling lazy there are plenty of pubs/inns/restaurant fairly local

An absolutely stunning cottage in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

'Little thatch' is the most beautiful cottage that we have ever stayed in. Very well equipped with a picture perfect long garden, we will definitely be returning next year. It is a home from home with every detail thought of. The owner describes it as their home and it certainly feels that way. Our twins loved playing with different toys! Located on the northern edge of The New Forest, it is in easy reach of all the attractions of the forest and a short drive from amazing beaches on the coast. Spacious and picture perfect, a stay at 'little thatch' will not disappoint.

Little Thatch is a gorgeous cottage which has a mixture of old and new.

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful thatched cottage is idyllic with a mixture of old and new, it is very spacious and extremely comfortable. There were five of us, four of which were adults and a teenager. It has a beautiful garden and is located very close to the New Forest itself which was perfect.

Lovely New Forest cottage and garden

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely thatched cottage on the eastern fringe of the New Forest. We found it very well maintained and equipped, with everything you need for a home from home experience. The garden is particularly beautiful, full of colour with lawns, flower beds and rose arbours. There is a barbecue area to the rear and a lovely view over fields. Highly recommended!

Amazing Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay - this cottage was everything we hoped for,so pretty, lovely garden, immaculately clean and everything we could need, especially for our toddler grandson - cot, high chair and even toys! The big open plan room downstairs was perfect for cooking, eating and just sitting. We all enjoyed it so much and would love to go back!

Location

From the Owner

We love the fact that the cottage has the character of an old thatched cottage with a light modern extension at the back. This means we have a cosy front room which we use in winter and the evenings, but a light living room next to the kitchen and the garden for summer and the day time. We also love the garden and have changed it a lot since buying the cottage, adding fruit trees, roses and a raised decking area at the back to make the most of the views across the fields.
