Now with exclusive use of our newly fitted hot tub
The Bothy is located on a quiet lane in the heart of the forest, where ponies, cattle and donkeys wander freely past the gates, a wonderful setting for a break anytime throughout the year.
The Bothy was rebuilt in 2008 following a fire which totally destroyed the original cottage, it was rebuilt using the original bricks as far as possible and we incorporated a beam we rescued and created the fireplace using it as a feature.
The cottage is beautifully furnished and decorated to a high standard, with an oak staircase and stone floors downstairs and a wood burner in the open plan living/dining room for the cooler evenings, The Bothy also has full central heating
A welcome pack will await your arrival including homemade cake, tea, coffee, sugar, freshly baked bread & orange juice. We also don't expect you to bring those necessities like washing up liquid, toilet rolls, logs and linen.
The Bothy provides all the modern conveniences that you would expect including a flat screen TV with Freesat, DVD player, CD Player/Radio, Microwave, Hairdryer, Iron, and a Coffee Maker. We have free wireless broadband . There is also a selection of CDs, DVDs, Games & books.
Upstairs the bathroom which adjoins the bedroom has a large slipper bath. Soft, fluffy towels and bathrobes are included.
The beautiful king size bedroom envelops you with an air of sensuality and deep relaxation which you are unlikely to forget, after a day of exploring the New Forest fill up the extra large roll top bath - big enough for two! and have a relaxing long soak, for special occasions look at our extras page!
For sunnier warm days and evenings at home there is a table and chairs in the garden with a Barbecue including a bag of complimentary charcoal. A picnic basket is available for those Forest picnics. There is also a cycle shed, Bicycles left here are at the owner's own risk and we advise they are locked.
There is ample parking for two cars and an enclosed garden, you will need to make sure the gates are shut at all times or you may get some unexpected equine guests!
What some of our previous guests have said;
Stayed here for three nights at the beginning of September with my partner. A perfect hideaway with
Every attention to detail. We couldn't have asked for more. This was my partners first time to the new forest and we couldn't have stayed in a more perfect place. Chrissy and Chris are the perfect hosts thinking of everything from a homemade cake to the wood burner filled and ready to light on a chilly night.
We recently stayed at The Bothy after a recommendation from friends. We had our young son with us and there was plenty of space for a travel cot for him. The Bothy is beautifully decorated, and we were welcomed with a delicious cake, wine, and all the essentials in the fridge. Chrissy and Chris were really friendly, and happy to accommodate any requests. The surrounding area is stunning, and as we only stayed for a couple of days, we'd certainly like to come again. Would definitely recommend.
There are honestly no words to describe our experience.
We arrived to a bottle of wine, homemade cake (which was delicious!) and all the essentials (two loafs of fresh bread, butter, jam, milk ect ect!) We were very catered for!
This self contained cottage is in the perfect spot. Near Fordingbridge village centre and lots of scattered pubs near by! Next time we visit we will be bringing our bikes!
The roll top bath was an added bonus and the perfect touch.
We have already recommended to our family and friends!
And we will definitely be back!
Thank you Chrissy for a lovely experience.
