This makes it ideal if you are a group or have older children. See our other listing for another double room with en-suite shower.

There is off road parking if required and we will happily collect you from the station which is only an 8 minute walk.
Easy access to Central London by fast rail service (just over 1 hour and a half) and the South Coast, ( Lymington10mins, Southampton 15mins, Bournemouth, 30mins and Weymouth 68 mins). The historic cities of Salisbury and Winchester are also easy to get to.
The Forest was originally established by William the Conquerer over a thousand years ago as his royal hunting ground and it has remained more or less the same since. It is one of the largest areas of undisturbed countryside left in Western Europe with loads of wildlife and, uniquely, grazing ponies and cattle. There is plenty to do and see locally and Adrian and Zofia are glad to recommend their favourites!
We have 2 dogs and a cat, not to mention the chickens at the end of the garden!
We love to make our guests feel really at home. We are easy going and friendly and look forward to hearing from you!

You are welcome to use the garden at any time, going around the side of the house.

However, please keep your bedroom door shut as Elsie (cat) loves to lie on a warm bed!
Please do not smoke in the house but enjoy the garden.
