Access to historic villages, National Trust properties and a wonderful working watermill within 5 minutes walking distance were an added bonus. We also chose this property for the internet access - which was excellent.”

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.
