Garden Cottage is a welcoming, well-equipped holiday cottage that can accommodate four guests (plus cot) in two bedrooms. The cottage is located in Rockbourne, an attractive Hampshire village near to the New Forest, Cranborne Chase and Salisbury. With gardens at the front and rear of the cottage leading to winterbourne stream and direct access onto downland walks, this is an ideal holiday retreat at any time of the year.
Rockbourne is a pretty village on the edge of the New Forest, with its timber framed cottages nestling amongst the picturesque downland of the Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village is surrounded by wonderful countryside where you will see donkeys, ponies and cattle roam freely. It is home to the Rockbourne Roman Villa and St. Andrew's Church with Norman origins set on the hillside overlooking the village. Within a short walk of the cottage you also have the Rose and Thistle, an attractive thatched village pub with an excellent menu and good pint of real ale.
Nearby and within easy reach is the Elizabethan Manor House in the village of Breamore and Salisbury's magnificent medieval cathedral. Often referred to as 'The City in the Countryside', Salisbury has much to offer with its historic architecture, restaurants and shops and is just a twenty minute car ride (ten miles) from Garden Cottage. The seaside resort of Bournemouth is also easily accessible and twenty miles away.
Rockbourne Trout Fishery offers fly fishing and the local area also offers horse riding and golf. For those wanting a day by the sea, the coast is just half an hour by car.
Located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Garden Cottage is ideal for those who enjoy country walks and conveniently located for visiting the many attractions of the area.
