  • “Two week May stay”
    Fabulous natural area which was peaceful but alive with a huge variety of wildlife - Nuthatches feeding young in the garden, Nightjars on the heath, and a full selection of ponies, cattle and donkeys along the track which leads to a pub at either end. ...
    Fabulous natural area which was peaceful but alive with a huge variety of wildlife - Nuthatches feeding young in the garden, Nightjars on the heath, and a full selection of ponies, cattle and donkeys along the track which leads to a pub at either end. Cabin was clean with small but fully equipped kitchen, homely lounge, comfortable bedroom, and clean bathroom with great power shower. Secure pet friendly garden complete with table/chairs and BBQ. The owners are characterful, knowledgeable and friendly - they leave you to get on with things, but the sort who would be fully supportive if there were any issues. Perfect for us as a base to do loads of local heath and woodland walks, but with good road connections enabling you to strike out further - Budgens at Shell station on Ringwood road in Blashford served us well for whole 2 week stay. We will return...

The property

A delightful, single-storey, unique detached timbered chalet, in the grounds of the owner's house, in an idyllic location in the hamlet of Linwood, in the heart of the New Forest National Park.

Surrounded by ancient woodland, this cosy little Hampshire cottage has a rustic quality which will make you feel truly away from it all.

The chalet has a quirky interior with characterful features including a warming antique woodburner, perfect for cooler evenings, as well as a comfortable bedroom with en-suite shower room.

You can literally walk straight out of the gates right into the forest, and take one of the numerous bridleways or footpaths from where you're sure to see wild ponies, cattle and deer.

There is also a super pub serving good food and real ales close by.

Should you tire of the forest, within an easy drive are the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu, the ancient cathedral city of Salisbury, or the attractions and beaches at Bournemouth.

A lovely New Forest chalet in a superb location: a relaxing holiday base all year round.

About the location

LINWOOD

Ringwood 5 miles.

Linwood is a tiny scattering of farms and cottages found towards the western end of the New Forest National Park, not far from Ringwood, a community well served by two pubs renowned for their good food and real ales. The New Forest, the country's smallest National Park, boasts 150 square miles of magnificent woodland, and swathes of heather and bracken covered heathland, dotted with picturesque villages, frequented by herds of wild ponies, cattle and deer, as well as many different species of birds. The forest is intersected by well marked paths which are great for walking, cycling and riding. Bike hire and pony trekking can be arranged at nearby Burley. Within easy reach can be found the famous National Motor Museum at Beaulieu, and a visit to the stunning gardens at Exbury is not to be missed. Both Salisbury and Bournemouth are a short drive away. This is a perfect location for a varied and interesting holiday.
