Accommodation : New Forest Character Cottage – NFT2569
Here are the highlights of Beachside Cottage:
- Five bedrooms
- Two bathrooms
- Beach is a few minutes walk away
- Sleeps up to 15 guests
This 300 year old New Forest character cottage is set in an idyllic location with the beach less than half a mile away, just minutes walk from the cottage.
Rescued from dereliction, the Beachside Cottage has undergone major refurbishment which has revealed the character of the cottage inside, much of which had been covered in hardboard for many years! There are the original timber boarded ceilings, two fireplaces, glorious rendered walls softly punctured by the characterful old oak and leaded light windows.
The beach, with views across to the Needles on the Isle of Wight to the left and across Christchurch Bay to the Purbecks, is a very short walk away.
