Godshill Wood Cottage - Godshill, Fordingbridge, Hampshire, The New Forest, England - Sleeps 3

Godshill Wood Cottage

Godshill Wood Cottage is a comfortable self-catering holiday annexe that is attached to owner’s period cob cottage, set in an idyllic location within the New Forest National Park. This is a peaceful, secluded retreat where you can truly relax and watch the birdlife, badgers and foxes visiting the garden.

The two bedroom single-storey annexe sleeps up to three guests, and is south-facing with lovely views across a wooded valley.

There is direct access from the property onto the open forest where you have a great variety of woodland, heath and valley walking close by. Other activities include horse riding, cycling (bike hire locally or bring your own), fishing in the nearby Avon, and swimming. The area is rich in wildlife, with almost nightly visits from badgers and foxes which are used to feeding under floodlights in the garden.

There are two pubs serving good food within walking distance and also a village shop where you can stock up on provisions. For most other amenities, the riverside town of Fordingbridge is only a couple of miles away.

Godshill Wood Cottage is an excellent base from which to explore the surrounding area. Both the Cathedral City of Salisbury and the beaches of Bournemouth are easily accessed by car. Visit the National Trust houses at Kingston Lacy, Mompesson, Mottisfont or Stourhead. Other major attractions include Stonehenge, Beaulieu Motor Museum, or spend a day on the Isle of Wight via the ferry from the coastal town of Lymington, which is also a lovely place to visit.
