Hurstly Cottage 1 sleeps up to eight guests in four bedrooms and is an ideal retreat nestling amongst a secluded garden within the New Forest National Park. Ideal for getting together with friends, a romantic break or a family holiday, this welcoming retreat ensures a comfortable stay at any time of the year and provides homely comforts and everything needed for a self-catering holiday.
The cottage sits off a country lane and is approached via a private driveway. With plenty of space to relax, yet a cosy inviting atmosphere, guests can enjoy a private setting with the added convenience of being just a short car ride from both Brockenhurst and Lymington where you will find excellent amenities.
For those who want to explore the local area by foot, you can leave the cottage and stroll to Royden Woods and the Lymington River or head off across the rolling heathland where you will see the native ponies, donkeys and cattle freely grazing. The Hobler Inn serves good food and is within strolling distance of the cottage with an excellent menu, serving local ales from Ringwood Brewery. There are also three other pubs that are walkable, all serving good food adding to the choice for a meal out.
This is a perfect base in the forest to spend a holiday where you are only a few minutes drive from the coast with beaches for lazy days, yacht charter, fishing expeditions and half hourly ferry links to Yarmouth, the Isle of Wight and Hurst Castle.
Nearby attractions: Horse Riding; Golf Course; Cycling and walking; A good variety of excellent restaurants; Lymington High Street and renowned Saturday market; Beaulieu Motor Museum and Park; Bucklers Hard; Exbury Gardens; Paultons Park.
