A lovely country outlook is enjoyed from the Hut and as we are in an area of no light pollution, you can also indulge yourselves in star gazing through the roof skylight. All quality linen and towels are provided and a washing machine and tumble dryer are available.

From the cottage you can cycle or walk a short distance into the forestry tracks. We have plenty of storage for your bikes. If you wish to bring your boat to take to the coast, we can store this securely for you. Pets are allowed providing they do not go into the bedroom or on the furniture.

At the bottom of the road, we have the local convenience store with post office and the village pub.


Situated on the edge of the New Forest, located on the boundary of Dorset and Hampshire, close to the River Avon. Ideally situated to explore Ringwood Forest on our doorstep, and a short drive can take you to the New Forest National Park famous for its free roaming ponies, donkeys, cattle and pigs in the autumn, Moors Valley Country Park, the local quaint town of Fordingbridge, delightful Wimborne Minster or the local market town of Ringwood.
