The Wooden House sleeps four guests and sits in a wonderful tranquil position just a ten minute walk from the small New Forest village of Pilley near Lymington. Surrounded by fields and trees, this is an ideal place for couples who want to escape from it all and relax and unwind in this haven for wildlife. Nestling in its own grounds in the New Forest National Park, this peaceful retreat is not overlooked and is ideal for those who enjoy walking, cycling and horse riding with direct forest access and miles of paths to explore. It is also just two miles from the Solent coastine and local beach and there are a number of swimming beaches within half an hour including Avon Beach, Highcliffe and Milford on Sea.
Pilley village itself has one of the oldest pubs in the forest and a small shop. A little further away and just four miles, is the Georgian market town of Lymington with its cobbled streets lined with pubs, restaurants and independent boutiques. Lymington also has a weekly Saturday market and you can catch a ferry from here to visit the Isle of Wight
The area offers plenty of attractions to suit all ages. The pretty historic village of Beaulieu is just five miles away where you will find the National Motor Museum and Beaulieu Abbey. From here you can walk alongside the river to Bucklers Hard with its museum, old Pub and tiny chapel. The picturesque village of Brockenhurst is nearby where you can hire bikes or visit the riding stables and explore the forest by horseback or visit Exbury Gardens, ablaze with colour in the spring.
