The cottage has a very spacious lounge with plenty of floor space for playmats and toys, 2 very comfortable sofas, a well equipped kitchen with all you need.

    • “We've just spent a wonderful week in Dorset, staying at Mole Hill Cottage in Alderholt. The cottage is in a perfect setting, with peace and quiet all around, although we found it to be very easy to travel from here to the various areas we wished to visit during our week. We found the owners to be very helpful and friendly,without being intrusive. The teatray with biscuits was very welcome when we arrived. The cottage is exceptionally well equipped, and was very clean and spacious. The whole week was most enjoyable and relaxing for us, and we would certainly return to Mole Hill Cottage again in the future.”

    • “A great little cottage in Alderholt which is about 20mins from Bournemouth. An excellent location to visit areas in the New Forest and Dorset. The cottage was in good condition, everything you need for a break away for two.”

    Mr Piggott, Basildon, May 2015

    • “We had a wonderful time at Mole Hill Cottage. Everything was so clean, new and comfortable. We visited many places and we managed to pick a fantastic week weather wise! The owners are great, not intrusive but there if you need them and always willing to show us round the grounds. All in all a great holiday.”

    • “Quiet location and helpful and friendly owner. .”

    Mr Williams, Holyhead, July 2014

    • “The accommodation was very well situated for a very restful & quiet break. The owners of the property were very helpful with hints to the best areas to visit, be it shops or scenery in and around the New Forest.”

    Mr Jacob, Peterborough, June 2014

    • “The cottage is semi-detached with a shared garden. The garden was simply beautiful and well looked after. It was great to sit outside to enjoy breakfast, dinner and an evening glass of wine with that view. The area was quiet yet within easy reach of many 'attractions'. The New Forest is a short drive away as is Salisbury and the South Coast. Beaulieu Palace and motor museum is a highly recommended day out and there are many good circular walks. Had a great night at Weymouth Pavilion watching a show.”

    Mr Colley, Mansfield, June 2014

    • “Hosts were very welcoming and friendly and invited us to help feed their new born lambs, which was amazing! Would have extended our stay if they were not fully booked.”

About the location


Fordingbridge 3 miles.

Alderholt is a friendly, scattered east Dorset community, found on the borders of Hampshire and Wiltshire, and lies in an attractive area of woodland, heathland and commonland, through which flows the River Avon, well known for its trout fishing. Three miles away lies the pretty Hampshire town of Fordingbridge, close to the edge of The New Forest National Park, with its swathes of purple heather and woodlands, home to wild ponies and dotted with quaint villages. Ten miles north takes you to the ancient city of Salisbury, with its beautiful cathedral, or alternatively take a trip south to the glorious seaside resort of Bournemouth, with its lively shopping centre and wonderful "Blue Flag" rated beaches. For keen golfers, Remedy Oak and Bramshaw courses are within a short drive. An ideal base for exploring three picturesque counties.
