About Forester's Cottage

This delightful detached 4 Star property is one of just two very individual cottages located on the owner’s friendly farm and offers holiday accommodation for four guests, children of all ages are welcome. For larger parties both cottages can accommodate up to nine guests (see also Keeper’s Cottage). Forester’s is equally ideal for a couple - a discount is offered to couples if only one of the bedrooms (and en-suite) is used. Pets are also welcome by arrangement and livery for horses.

Forester’s has ground level accommodation. It is beautifully maintained and well equipped to ensure you have an enjoyable and memorable holiday or short break. Digital TV’s and full gas central heating offer a very comfortable environment all year round. Forester’s is open for Christmas and New Year.

Surrounded with trees, fields and hedgerows, this lovely area offers a variety of wildlife, excellent country walks, off road cycling and horse riding. Close to the New Forest/East Dorset border, the location offers the best of both worlds. The New Forest market town of Ringwood is just 4 miles east, between and within an easy walk is, Moors Valley Country Park with lakes, tree top trail, cycle hire, steam railway and lots more. The spectacular Cranborne Chase is four miles west with some of Dorset’s finest scenery. Just seven miles south, are the beaches of Southbourne, Hengistbury Head and Mudford Sands with nature trails, cliff walks, land-train and water sports.

The coast and countryside offer a wealth of pursuits, events and special sights, as well as a huge variety of bistros, pubs, restaurants, markets, museums, and attractions.
