About the property

Located in the heart of The New Forest in the beautiful hamlet of Bank, Acorn Cottage is an idyllic place to stay, wether for a family retreat or for a romantic getaway. The cottage, much of which dates back to 1760, retains charm & character but features all the modern appliances you will need for a relaxing luxury holiday. There are gorgeous 3 bedrooms that sleep 6. Set in an acre of garden on the open Forest where the New Forest ponies & cows are your frequent visitors, as well as the ducks that live in the garden. Newly decorated, we offer exceptional quality, comfort & luxury. Downstairs there is a fully equipped cottage style kitchen with a dining area and separate utility room, lounge with wood burner, dining room with inglenook fireplace & garden room all with views over the extensive gardens. Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms, the master bedroom is an en-suite bathroom with stunning forest views & king sized bed, a second bedroom with king sized double bed and a third that can be a twin or children's room (with a travel cot & matress) & a family bathroom with shower. The large secure front garden has a lawn area and various outside seating to enjoy the all day sunshine. The large back garden is divided into 2 sections, the first an enclosed area with outside lounge seating & BBQ on raised decking with steps down to a patio dining area and lawn which overlooks the rest of the garden. There is pretty pond area, which is fenced off from the house & main garden, with a pontoon and small pond house where you can picnic and watch the ducks and the occasional Kingfisher whilst overlooking the beautiful Willow Tree and tranquil surroundings. There is a great country pub a short walk away and the local village of Lyndhurst is close by offering a wonderful selection of shops, bike hire, coffee shops and places to eat. The picturesque village of Brockenhurst is a 10 minute drive or bus journey away (with the main line train with frequent trains to London and the South Coast). The New Forest is at your doorstep with endless walks, cycle paths and places to explore & enjoy. If it's a beach you're looking for, just 20 minutes away you have the choice of the beautiful sandy beaches and beach huts of Mudeford or the marina and stunning town of Lymington where crabbing and fish and chips on the quay are a must. A fantastic family cottage offering a beautiful, peaceful location but with so much to do - a perfect holiday home.

Why Maria chose Lyndhurst

We have walked and cycled in and around Bank and always thought is was one of the lovliest places to live in the Forest. We were delighted when we found Acorn Cottage for sale and bought it after the first visit!

Beautiful Cottage and Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to the New Forest. The cottage was beautiful and very comfortable. It was in a peaceful location but still within walking distance to Lyndhurst. We enjoyed seeing the New Forest ponies every morning. We absolutely loved our stay at the cottage and would come back again. Maria, our host, left an amazing welcome package!

Simply perfect

  • 5 of 5

Exceeded all expectations! Idyllic location, comfortable house, magnificent garden. Maria's welcome was second to none. Very homely property, equipped with everything we needed and more. Our daughter loved the pond house, the games of croquet on the lawn and the birds feeding outside the kitchen window. Haven't rested so much in ages. Already planning our return...

Beautifully​ presented, stunning Cottage.

  • 5 of 5

We were welcomed by Maria, who made us feel very welcome. She provided us with an Easter Cake, bread butter and Acorn Cottage jam, and a bottle of wine. Oops nearly forgot the Easter eggs. The cottage is in a lovely area, with forest walks and cycle tracks on your doorstep. It was well equipped and thoughtful presented. The garden was fantastic for our little dog, very safe. The large pond in the garden was such a delight to walk around and see the wildlife, and feed the fish. Comfy beds insured a good night's sleep. Would thoroughly recommend, and would love to visit again.

Stunning Cottage with lovely owners!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was a real find as it had everything we were looking for. The location couldn't be better being in an idyllic rural spot within the New Forest but only 5mins from lyndhurst by car. The cottage itself has been beautifully decorated and has everything you could want for your stay. The gardens are perfect if you have dogs or young children, having a large fully enclosed lawn and patio with a stunning duck house and pond beyond. We will definitely be returning to experience it in the summer although we'll miss the log burner!!

Wonderful and charming stay

  • 5 of 5

We had the most charming few days in this hide away beautiful cottage. On arrival we were welcomed with a lovely parcel of goodies, this was a great surprise. The house is decorated to a high standard, creating a luxurious stay. Great location, and lovely pub up the road. This house was great for my toddler too, which was a big bonus! We are planning our next stay!
