About the property

Cottage in the New Forest National Park, Hampshire. A beautiful location within walking distance of open forest, counry pubs and village shop

The Old Dairy is an ideal retreat for couples or small families. This delightful self catering holiday home is nestled in the village of Bramshaw near Lyndhurst in the New Forest National Park.

As the name suggests, the building was formerly a working dairy attached to the stable block, in the owner's grounds.

Whilst the owners are nearby should you require any assistance, guests can enjoy a good degree of privacy and a relaxing environment with lovely views across the south facing paddock - sit back and relax whilst watching the ponies, donkeys, sheep, free range chickens, geese and emus wander and graze.

The Old Dairy is ideal for those who want to explore the New Forest whether you enjoy walking, cycling or horse riding.

Guests are welcome to bring their own horses to enjoy wonderful open forest rides which are accessible just five minutes away from the property.

Ride your bike or horse in any direction and explore the pretty forest villages of Burley and Brockenhurst or venture a little further to Ringwood. There are also some great pubs for refreshments along the way!

Easily accessible from the M27, the Old Dairy is conveniently positioned for exploring not only the many attractions of the New Forest, but also great days out at Winchester, Salisbury, Romsey, Portsmouth and Southampton.

Alternatively, stay closer to home and enjoy the wonderful forest walks which are just a four minute walk away and then take a stroll to one of the two local pubs for a delicious evening meal.

A beautiful setting amongst lots of animals.

  • 4 of 5

We loved being amongst the animals and were lucky enough to see two lambs born.

One thing we would say is that the sofa bed may have had its day as after a few hours we were practically on the floor! As this is the only seating it was a bit of a problem, however as the evenings were mostly dry we sat outside enjoying the peaceful atmosphere.

Great place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

Two of us and the dog stayed here for a long weekend mid november. situation is great , we walked down to the Green dragon (nearest pub) and were safe walking home in the dark. the owner is great and so are her dogs!!! I thought that the property might be a bit on the small side but is easily big enough, and it has everything you need!! there is a lovely private enclosed area so that our dog could have her own space as she is a bit nervous around "lively" dogs!! the owners dogs are lively but so friendly you don't need to worry. we needed to put the heating on while there and it warmed up nicely. there are loads of animals to see on the property and its lovely to wake up and see them outside the window in the morning. we would definately stay here again THANKS

Cute, beautifull surroundings and animals everywhere

  • 5 of 5

The converted dairy was a perfect get away in the heart on the New Forest. Only a short walk from some lovely village pubs. Woke up to the sound of the farm animals each day. It has a very equipped little kitchen. Absolutely perfect. Enjoyed every minute. Andrea was a lovely host. Thank you.
