About Nadine Sherborne

I live in the house next to Venards Lodge with my family, dogs and cats. We also have rare breed chickens, 2 pet pigs (Posh and Becks!) and horses. I moved to the New Forest 24 years ago and I am sure I will never live anywhere else.

Nadine Sherborne purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Nadine Sherborne chose New Forest

We bought the 17th century Grade II* listed house and the Lodge sits within the grounds. We all love living in the New Forest, we love the fact that we are rural and yet within easy reach of several towns and the wonderful South Coast.

What makes this cottage unique

We don't stay in the property as it is only about 200 yards from our house but we did live in there while we were renovating the house. It's a lovely 'home'.

Bournemouth beaches about 25 minutes drive away.


Bournemouth Airport about 25 minutes, Southampton about 35 minutes. Car essential as we are very rural.


We are in the village, although it is quite spread out. Fordingbridge is about 5 minutes away (driving) and Ringwood about 10 minutes (driving).

Further Details:

Lots of good pubs in the New Forest. Plenty of 'attractions' in the surrounding areas, Winchester around 40 minutes away and Salisbury half an hour.
