Accommodation : New Forest Large Cottage – NFT2719
Here are the highlights of the converted vinery cottage:
- Eight bedrooms
- Large garden
- Direct forest access
- House sleeps up to 30 people
This New Forest large cottage was converted from a large vinery, the gardeners cottage and a small cottage to create a large, spacious dwelling ideal for weekend breaks away.
The cottage still features the original vinery ironwork in what is now a very light kitchen/dining space, with views over the large back garden from the full length of this room. The cosy but spacious lounge is directly off this central space, with two sets of french windows opening to the front garden and large deck, enclosed by the beautiful outside wall of the listed walled garden.
The Hub of the House
The kitchen/dining room in the cottage is central, with views across the garden and good sized dining tables for up to all 30 guests.
At one end of the room is the kitchen, which has freestanding Ikea Udden stainless steel kitchen units providing ample work surfaces and storage. There is a full standard size 60cm electric oven with grill, a separate 90cm gas hob, and two large freestanding fridge/freezers, dishwasher and a washing machine. The base and wall units house all the cooking and dining equipment needed for your break.
Through a double door wide opening in one side is the lounge, a large, warm, cosy room with a wood burning stove and lovely outlook over the front garden. This has a television and DVD player, and plenty of contemporary armchairs and settees making a very comfortable room. There's also sofa-beds in here providing an extra bedroom where required.
There are eight bedrooms at this large cottage, each normally arranged with a double bed and one or two singles. Three of the bedrooms are at one end of the long, large cottage, which share a bathroom. Three more bedrooms are located at the other end, again with a nearby bathroom. The other two bedrooms are central, off a lobby from the main dining space, and share another bathroom. These two bedrooms overlook the front garden and deck, one has French windows to access this, and the other has a conservatory at the end.
Each bathroom has a WC, basin, and a bath with a shower over, with glazed bath screen. Each has a heated towel rail.
