The Bothy sits in an area of outstanding beauty in the heart of the New Forest national park. Set in a peaceful village with New Forest ponies grazing nearby.
The two bedroomed property has been beautifully restored and will
provide you with a very comfortable and peaceful base to explore the area.
There is much to explore locally and many parts of the forest can be enjoyed on foot or bike. The village pub is famous in the area for good food and is only a short stroll away.

We stayed in the Bothy for nearly a week with our two children (2+5 yrs). The place is big enough for a family, you can cook your own meal in a well equipped kitchen. The children can play on the lawn. Alison is a very nice host. We would come here again!
