Overview

About the property

Big Cottage in Brockenhurst, New Forest. Unique New Forest Location. Forest walks straight from the large garden. Village 5 Mins By Car. Beach 20 Mins.

This Large cottage is in the most idyllic location of all New Forest Cottages, set in over an acre of gardens directly adjoining the New Forest itself with direct forest access. From the garden gate into the forest you can walk for miles on forest paths without seeing a car or a road all day long, but ponies, deer, other walkers and cyclists.

You are able to abandon the car for the whole break here if you want to really get away from it all, as the cycle tracks which link up the whole New Forest are accessible from Blackwater, opposite, and Bank, with it’s village pub, and larger villages Lyndhurst and Brockenhurst are an easy cyle ride away safely on the tracks.

A very light, central hub kitchen/dining space, with views over the large back garden, still features original ironwork. The cosy but spacious lounge is directly off this central space, with two sets of French windows opening to the front garden and large deck, enclosed by the beautiful outside wall of the listed walled garden. Children love the large garden here, where there are wide open spaces for playing ball games, Frisbee or flying a kite, and various smaller areas to explore. The open back garden can all be seen straight from the kitchen and dining spaces, and the large front garden from the lounge and the conservatory playroom, families can be together while each doing what they enjoy.

Walks from here are beautiful, you will not need to go out in the car first – you are already there! This is particularly useful in a larger group that would mean several cars needed to be used to go out. Dogs are most welcome here, and usually love chasing the rabbits in the garden, and can enjoy walks each day without needing to bundle into the car first.

Brockenhurst is a delightful New Forest village, with ‘the splash’, a ford where the stream runs through the village. There’s plenty of pubs, restaurants, sandwich and coffee shops, as well as bookshop, several antique shops, bakeries and two small supermarkets.

Lyndhurst is similarly sized, and known as the ‘capital’ of the New Forest, again with a choice of pubs, tea rooms and restaurants, local shops and a small supermarket.

The really light kitchen/dining room here is central, with views across the garden and good sized dining tables for everyone to eat, socialise and relax together. At one end of the room is the kitchen, which has a freestanding stainless steel kitchen with ample worksurfaces and storage.

There's a large gas range cooker and two large freestanding fridge/freezers, two dishwashers and a washing machine. Ideal for having a chef-catered meal for a special evening in, with no washing up to do, no tables to set, no wine to pay a lot for, or taxis to arrange home, as you’re already there!

Through a double door wide opening in one side is the lounge, a large, warm, cosy room with a woodburning stove and lovely outlook over the front garden. This has a television and DVD player, and plenty of contemporary armchairs and settees making a very comfortable room. There’s also a double sofabed and single sofabeds in here.

There are another eight double and family bedrooms at this large cottage, family rooms each normally arranged with a double bed and one or two singles. There’s some flexibility for groups whose requirements differ slightly. Three of the bedrooms are at one end of the long, large cottage, which share a bathroom, with three more bedrooms at the other end, again with a nearby bathroom. Each end has a large family room overlooking the back garden, and doubles or smaller family rooms with front or back garden views. The other two bedrooms are central, off a lobby from the main dining space, and again share another bathroom. These two bedrooms overlook the front garden and deck, one has french windows to access this, and the other has a conservatory at the end which doubles as a playroom where children can read or draw amongst lovely surroundings with plenty of light.

The three distinctive bedroom regions work well when 3 or more families share the cottage, or where a large group can arrange themselves to be near their closest friends. Each bathroom has a wc, basin, and a bath with a shower over, with glazed bath screen. Each has a heated towel rail.

The forest cycleways run from here too, so bring or hire bikes and get the most from your break. The unique forest setting and location here is everything!

Gorgeous location and cosy relaxing family cottage

  • 4 of 5

We all had a fabulous stay with the children loving the gardens and forest. All so relaxed at the cottage with so much space for us all. The owners made it so easy for us to arrange. Would definitely book again.

Further Details:

"Just a quick note to say what a lovely house you have. We had a fantastic weekend! Thanks again, hopefully we can come and stay again some time soon"

"We enjoyed our stay at Bothy very much. It was lovely to be so far from traffic and with such a big open space around, for the safety of the children. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. What a lovely position, right in the forest."

"We have just spent a wonderful Christmas with our family. It was not easy to find a large property which is prepared to let for a few days rather than a week at this busy time. We just missed booking the Old Stables and were initially disappointed, but we soon realised that the Bothy would probably suit us better with young children and dogs"
