About Alan Roberts

We bought this property in 2007 as our holiday home. We started letting it for holidays in 2008.

I enjoy staying at Coral Cottage off season, now I am retired.

This is helpful for our guests as by staying in the Cottage I become aware of anything that needs doing.

We now have friends in the area who have moved down from London, which makes our visits more enjoyable.

Alan Roberts purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Alan Roberts chose Burton

We like being close to the sea/beaches, the New Forest and Bournemouth.

One of my hobbies is sailing (on friend's yachts), so this location is handy for Poole, Lymington, Hamble and Portsmouth.

I also like cycling in the New Forest, and try not to use the car once I have arrived at Coral Cottage.

This area is very popular with the fast road cyclists. At the weekend there a lots of groups of cyclists enjoying the area.

My bike is a hybrid mountain bike, so I get overtaken a lot!

What makes this cottage unique

There are a number of very nice Gastro Pubs nearby for eating out. Three within walking distance.

Our favourite is the Woolpack in Sopely. Good value, great food, but you do need to book for Saturday nights. The place to eat is in the conservatory overlooking a floodlit stream. There is a pavement all the way if you prefer to walk. Take a torch though. There is a car park.

Opposite, but far way enough not to be a problem is the Fisherman's Haunt. The food and beer is excellent.

I provide an information pack giving the telephone numbers and post codes of the best places to eat.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wish we could have used it more..... (Daughters Wedding) The proprietors have thought of everything that visitors need. Will love to come back one day soon

Charming Cosy Character Cottage in the Country!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a Cosy Couple getaway, with the sun pouring into the suntrap kitchen & garden during the day and the fire roaring in the evening! Situated just the right staggering distance from two great pubs & near to the cute Christchurch town center, new forest and beach, but in a quiet! Very well equipped (oven, hobs, toaster, fridge, freezer, kettle, dishwasher) with all kitchen utensils you could want, & useful extras like a hairdryer. Spotless property with useful notes and tons of logs (plus extra in the garage)! The crocus and daffodils were just beginning to come out! This was our second stay and will be rebooking!

Lovely cottage and ideal lovation

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was lovely, the beds were very comfy and everything we needed was provided. The wood burner made it very cosy on a winters evening. The pub opposite was good but the Lamb, a short walk down the road, was better.

Coast & Beach

10 minutes drive to Avon Beach at Mudeford and Christchurch Harbour. The Avon Beach is quiet, safe and has awards for cleanliness. There are several popular quality cafes on the promenade.

There are more beaches at Bournemouth along with other attractions at this major resort.

Hengistbury Head Nature Reserve is a must for a day out. Just 15 minutes drive from Coral Cottage. I usually cycle from Coral Cottage, and enjoy a tea and cake at the Beach Cafe. You can also catch the ferry from Mudeford Quay/Avon Beach to Hengisbury Head. In addition to a lovely walk up onto Hengistbury Head itself, there are two cafes, one at each end of the walk, an inexpensive car park, and a Land Train along the flat route to the end of the dunes. There you will see numerous Beach Huts which are sold by estate agents for about £100k!

New Forest.

Just five minutes drive from Coral Cottage you will be over the cattle grid and able to enjoy the country side of the New Forest. The pony's are very tame, great fun to watch and photograph.

At Burley in the New Forest there are bicycles for hire. There are numerous easy tracks to cycle along, including an old railway line route. There is a great cafe along the way built in an old station.

In Burley in the New Forest there is horse riding for all levels of experience. I ride occasionally. Best to book a few days in advance.

Lymington in the New Forest has a Saturday Market, several Marina's a Town Quay where visiting yachts are moored, and salt marshes with paths running through them which are great for bird watching.

Poole Harbour is a must for a day out. The town quay is a hive of activity. There are boat trips to Brownsea Island which has read squirrels and peacocks with attitude. This is a National Trust island, free to enter for members. The boat trip is extra, however it does include a tour round Poole Harbour, with a commentary.

Beaulieu is also a great day out. There is the National Car Museum, Bucklers Hard which is where wooden ships used to be built between two rows of houses leading down to the river. There is also a marina, and a great pub serving good food.

Isle of Wight.

Ferries run to the Isle of Wight from Lymington continuously during the day and evening.


The New Forest is just five minutes by car from Coral Cottage.

Christchurch Town, Quay and Priory are about ten minutes drive from Coral Cottage.

Bournemouth with its amazing beaches is about 15 minutes drive from Coral Cottage.

Poole Harbour where there is a huge range of activities is about 45 minutes away by car.

Hengisbury Head Nature Reserve is ten minutes drive from Coral Cottage.

Further Details:

Within ten minutes drive there are two Waitrose, Sainburys, M & S and a Tesco. It is ten minutes walk to the nearest shop, that sells nearly all you need.

There are three Gastropubs within walking distance. The Fishermans Haunt can be reached by crossing the road from Coral Cottage and walking through the pub garden. The main entrance is in another road, so we have easy access and no noise.
