About Lynn Cheer

At Rushcroft Farm we have a small herd of pedigree British Saddleback pigs, rare breed English goats and Aberdeen Angus cattle. We produce all our own meat for the family and sell some to our friends and guests. The Farm is situated in a beautiful part of the New Forest and we enjoy walking, riding and cycling in our spare time.

Why Lynn Cheer chose New Forest

Great location for exploring the New Forest and Hampshire/Dorset coastline.

What makes this cottage unique

Walking distance to local shops, pubs and the open forest. A short drive to coastal towns such as Lymington, Milford, Highcliffe and Mudeford.

Beautiful property, tranquil surroundings, friendly owners, even the animals were welcoming

  • 5 of 5

This property is well worth a visit, you will not be disappointed, tranquil surroundings and within easy reach of the forest and lovely friendly villages. We visited in January and were not disappointed. The property has everything you could possibly need, owners are very friendly and don't forget to ask about fresh eggs which taste amazing not like in the shops, I had forgotten what really fresh eggs taste like, brought some home with me. Have already recommended this holiday let and look forward to going back again so many more villages to see and don't forget the beaches. Lots of pubs and restaurants to eat in nearby to suit all pockets.
