About the thatch cottage

Spent all my childhood holidays in new forest and when we married we spent most weekends and holidays in new forest and so we bought this beautiful thatched cottage so we could spend more time there. But now its so booked! which we love the idea that everyones loving the cottage and the forest as much as we do we rarely use the cottage ourselves now! Although we still spend a lot of time in the new forest so come along and start making your own memories of this unique place, we get so many repeat bookings just shows its not just us that love this place

Why the thatch cottage chose East Boldre

Short breaks are available from £399 for 3 night weekend breaks ( Friday to Monday) or 4 night mid week breaks ( Monday to Friday). Please contact us to enquire & book on 07801-250688

What makes this cottage unique

Stunning thatch cottage with jacuzzi in beautiful cottage gardens. Great sunny sheltered garden. Ponies & donkeys just outside the gate, directly on the forest for those beautiful walks through the New Forest. Village location with great pub to enjoy great evenings out & village shop & local farm shop for local produce.

Wonderful, cosy home

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time in the cottage, everything we needed was provided and it's a beautiful setting There's a pub up the road and a shop around the corner, visited by the donkeys much to our delight! There are lovely walks and it's a great base for exploring the area too.

Small but cute as a button and spotless clean

  • 4 of 5

But the fact that we had to strip our own beds left a bitter aftertaste - at the cost, we shouldn't have been lugging linen down tiny stairs at the last minute as we were trying to get out on time
