Perfect, cosy hideaway for two.

The Potting shed is well situated for visiting the New Forest, the coast and Dorset. Very cosy, with an amazing log burner. Well equipped. Friendly, helpful owner.

Brilliant stay, such a beautiful cottage!

  • 5 of 5

The Potting Shed was a great stay, the kitchen had a compact, intelligent selection that accommodated us perfectly. The instructions left by the hosts on how to use the wood burner were helpful as was the information provided on local attractions and the New Forest.

A little further afield of the New Forest than we had anticipated, would recommend anyone planning on making excursions into it from here either drive in or take public transport before starting their wanderings.

Would definitely stay again.

Fabulous little cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at The Potting Shed. So close to the New Forrest and some lovely costal towns. Christchurch and Poole were nice to visit.

The cottage had everything you needed. The wood burner was great for the cold evenings.

About Potting Shed Sopley

I live locally in Bournemouth with a young family, who keep me on my toes! Before children I was a physiotherapist, but now dedicate most of my time to looking after our 2 small children and supporting my husband who is training to be a vicar.

Potting Shed Sopley purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Potting Shed Sopley chose Sopley

My parents bought 21 Sopley in 1979 as they were driving through Sopley for under £20,000 and took me and my sister to this cottage for years. It was a real "step back in time" with no telephone or TV and frequently frozen pipes! We loved exploring the New Forest and beaches locally.

Later, my Dad bought a plot of land next door and put a Potting Shed on it for storage. in 2016 we decided it would be more use as a holiday chalet so worked on converting it into a simple one bedroom chalet with a quiet loft space. It is now a lovely self-contained cottage with a large living, kitchen, dining area and beautiful garden to enjoy the outdoors.

What makes this cottage unique

Although you are relatively close to "civilization" it still feels quiet and peaceful staying at the Potting Shed. The garden is full of nature and in the summer it is especially nice for enjoying the sunshine and perhaps a BBQ. In winter there is a log burner stove to give the Potting Shed a really "cosy" feel. There is a pub opposite, the Woolpack for easy access to food or drink.
