Plum Tree Cottage - Sandleheath, Nr Fordingbridge, Hampshire, The New Forest, England - Sleeps 4
Plum Tree Cottage is a homely pretty thatched cottage offering a basic level of accommodation that sleeps four guests with one double bedroom and two singles. Adjoining the owners home and occupying the left hand side of the building, the cottage is heated making it ideal all year round and has a log burner for cosy winter breaks.
Located on the edge of the New Forest National Park, equidistant from the pretty small village of Sandleheath and Rockbourne with its thatched and timber properties, the cottage is near to Fordingbridge and offers unpretentious accommodation with original character.
An ideal base from which to enjoy the many attractions of both the New Forest and Hampshire as a county, Plum Tree Cottage is entirely self-contained and affords a rural position surrounded by farmland.
Situated very close to the boundaries of the New Forest, guests have easy access to miles of forest walks and pretty villages with traditional pubs ideal for long leisurely lunches. The area has much to offer outdoor enthusiasts including horse riding, fishing and cycling both along the country lanes and forest tracks (bike hire available locally).
For those who want to explore the wider area and its places of interest, the Cathedral City of Salisbury, Stonehenge, Beaulieu Motor Museum, the beaches of Bournemouth, Lymington and even the Isle of Wight are within driving distance. There are also plenty of historic houses and gardens to visit.
