Covid-19: COVID: Due to the unknowns regarding further government restrictions, we offer a full refund if Covid circumstances prevent you from commencing your holiday at Fernlea or if the property becomes unavailable.

About Fernlea

Fernlea is a modern terraced home that has been completely renovated to offer a high standard of accommodation for up to five people in three bedrooms. It’s perfect for families, couples, friends and one small dog. The cottage is in the heart of Sway village, in a quiet residential road with roadside parking adjacent to the property. The rear terraced garden is securely fenced in. Sway is in the New Forest National Park and conveniently located within short walking distance of village shops, cafe, The Silver Hind Pub and The Hare & Hounds Pub (both dog friendly).

Due to its location and the bonus of Sway train station’s main line services to London and other areas, you will be in easy reach of favourite attractions and within walking distance of the New Forest, which is full of pretty villages with thatched cottages and free-roaming ponies and cattle, friendly tea rooms and excellent country pubs.

From Fernlea, you will be able to comfortably access other local attractions such as Paulton’s Park, Peppa Pig World, Bovington Tank Museum and Monkey World. Buckler’s Hard Village and Museum is well worth a visit as is the National Motor Museum in Beaulieu or admiring the seasonal beauty of Exbury Gardens. The historic town of Lymington is within a 15-minute drive where you can enjoy a variety of shops, pubs, restaurants, tearooms, Saturday market, seawater bath, seawall walk, the quaint cobbled street to the Quay and pass the time yacht watching! From Lymington you can board the Wightlink Ferry for a sightseeing trip to the Isle of Wight. Whether your preference is for full on sports activities, relaxing on the beach (within 5-miles) or visiting the diverse range of tourist attractions for all ages, the New Forest has something for everyone.
