    My husband and I stayed at Undercastle Cottage in the last week of August 2017 with our 12 year old daughter, my sister and brother in law and Hugo (4 legged species). From the moment we arrived we could feel the stress of modern day living falling away. This place is simply stunning. From the perfect landscape and surroundings to the blissful sights and sounds of nature. If you want the ideal location without wifi to distract you then stay here.

    My husband and I stayed at Undercastle Cottage in the last week of August 2017 with our 12 year old daughter, my sister and brother in law and Hugo (4 legged species). From the moment we arrived we could feel the stress of modern day living falling away. This place is simply stunning. From the perfect landscape and surroundings to the blissful sights and sounds of nature. If you want the ideal location without wifi to distract you then stay here. I will say our daughter practically hyperventilated when she found out there was not to be any wifi, but she soon found herself far too busy enjoying the simple experiences of childhoods forgotten.....swans, ducks, ponies who came to visit at the gate (don't forget to close it), donkeys, cows, the swing in the garden, the hammock by the river, the rowing boat, the sunsets, the frogs......the list could go on and on. A super holiday with lovely memories, especially for my husband as he caught a huge Chubb after many hours of patience. As an aside the cottage is not far at all from many local attractions like Sandbanks, Poole, Portsmouth, Monkey World. There is also a fantastically stocked community shop in Woodgreen (less than 5 minutes drive / 20 minute walk) which sells local produce and essentials. Stay here and you will not be disappointed.

About the location

FORDINGBRIDGE

Salisbury 11 miles; Bournemouth 18 miles.

Fordingbridge is a traditional Hampshire town on the banks of the River Avon, and offers a good mix of shops, pubs and restaurants, a small museum of local history and a display of original work by the artist Augustus John, who lived here for many years. The medieval Great Bridge, with seven graceful arches, is a major feature of the town. The immediate area is a wonderful place for visitors, with its beautiful scenery, nature havens, cycleways and welcoming people. Fordingbridge is conveniently situated for the magnificent cathedral city of Salisbury to the north, and the super seaside resort of Bournemouth to the south. The stunning New Forest National Park is only 1.5 miles from the town, where you can explore thousands of acres of moor, heath and woodland frequented by wild ponies, and dotted with quaint villages and country pubs. Within a short drive is the magnificent Elizabethan manor house at Breamore, as well as the New Forest Water Park, and a trip to Beaulieu, home of the National Motor Museum is not to be missed. This is a great location for exploring this picturesque and interesting area.
