  • “Endymion is a cosy, comfortable chalet in the heart of the New Forest.”

    The owners live next door - they and their dogs are very welcoming and on hand if needed. We enjoyed relaxing in the small enclosed garden watching the wonderful variety of birds that came to feast upon the bird feeders and sitting inside in the evening, warmed by the log burning fire. We had welcome gifts of fresh produce and wine - greatly appreciated - plus ample dog towels and poo bags if needed. The chalet has everything required in order to prepare meals but there are also many pubs ...

The chalet has everything required in order to prepare meals but there are also many pubs dotted about in the area to enjoy too. It is certainly a fantastic place to get away from it all - literally, as there is no phone signal here!! There are plentiful walks right on the doorstep if you want a break from driving. Be sure though to have a sturdy car as the mile or so gravel road leading to the chalet can be a bit punishing! Having said that, it is worth the effort to be away from the towns and traffic and to see the deer and ponies (and cattle!) that roam freely across the beautiful landscape, not to mention the clearly visible stars of the night sky. In all, a great place to escape and relax.

About 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.
