  • “An excellent little cottage, which in the current climate with a paucity of nice holiday lets in the UK, far exceeded our expectations for the price.”

    The cottage is cosy, the garden is excellent (private and well equipped) and the owner Cathy was extremely friendly and even gave us a delicious cake. There is a games room shared with the neighbouring property with a mini pool table, table tennis table and a large selection of board games. The surrounding area is stunning and our little spaniel loved the endless surrounding fields to run around in. Stonehenge, Bournemouth, Poole, Lulworth Cove + Durdle Door as within an hour’s drive. ...

The surrounding area is stunning and our little spaniel loved the endless surrounding fields to run around in. Stonehenge, Bournemouth, Poole, Lulworth Cove + Durdle Door as within an hour’s drive. We were allowed to check in early upon our arrival day which is probably why there were a few minor issues (like 1 toilet roll for a 5 day stay and the kitchen lights didn’t work), but this was easily forgivable. Overall it was a brilliant stay, would highly recommend the cottage and would certainly come and stay again the the future.

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.
