There is outside dining areas for those al fresco moments whilst the sun goes down & for children frolicking in the grounds. It is ideal for anyone wanting both an endearing quaint cottage experience coupled with modern furnishings and amenities. Set on the fringe of Ringwood forest with views and access to the woodlands, this great property is steeped in history and can be dated back to around the year of 1480.
