Little Terraces - Downton, Nr Salisbury & New Forest, Wiltshire, England - Sleeps 2

Little Terraces

Little Terraces sleeps two guests and is a delightful retreat for couples in the pretty Wiltshire village of Downton, just five minutes by car from the New Forest National Park. A cosy cottage with a big view, Little Terraces is ideal all year round with a log burner for cosy winter nights and a terrace for a 'sundowner' offering stunning panoramic views over Salisbury downs - a real relaxing, tranquil haven to escape the pressures of everyday life.

Newly refurbished, this delightful cottage provides comfortable, contemporary self-catering accommodation with charming cottage appeal and is an ideal base for exploring not only the New Forest but also Salisbury, Southampton, world famous Stonehenge and the beautiful coastline from Lymington to Bournemouth.

Delightful countryside walks can be enjoyed from the front door and you can stroll into the pretty village of Downton with its pubs, shops, cafés and riverside walk. The river Avon and nearby lakes are well known for their excellent fishing and the pubs are welcoming and serve excellent meals and ales - you have everything you should need within walking distance. Downton sits on the banks of the River Avon which flows from the historic town of Salisbury (just six miles away from Little Terraces). With its beautiful cathedral towering above the town, Salisbury offers a great choice of restaurants, pubs and shops, along with a medieval cinema.

Within just a few minutes' drive you have the stunning National Park of the New Forest where ponies, donkeys, cows, deer and other wild animals roam freely. If you visit at the right time of year you may even see pigs! With a mix of woodland and open heathland, there are miles of interesting paths and tracks to explore on foot, bike or horseback. Each season offers something special from the myriad of purple heather in August, to the golden hues of autumn and the twinkling frosts of winter to the excitement of spring as the scenery bursts into life. Scattered amongst this stunning wilderness are pretty villages where cattle graze with interesting little shops and local pubs serving fine food. There are also plenty of attractions including the Beaulieu Motor Museum, Bucklers Hard and Exbury Gardens to name just a few.

For those happy to venture further afield, Christchurch, Bournemouth, Lymington (where you can catch the Isle of Wight ferry) and Poole are all within an hour's drive. There are also plenty of National Trust properties and gardens within the area to visit.

Whether you want to simply relax or explore the areas many attractions, Little Terraces is an ideal base and conveniently located just two hours from London.
