(Reference number: 72998) This hide-away home is tucked out of view at the bottom of a country lane. Set amongst an ancient forest, this spot is ideal for a rural family escape. The iconic New Forest Ponies are not far away. In fact, the owner is a collector and her gentle herd can be found by the front gate. Simple and slow living is at the heart of this property – an ethos that is reflected in the minimal interior. The furnishings here show that less is more; wooden furnishings are neatly paired with charming works of art. The sitting room is comfortable, with several sofas set up for evenings spent playing scrabble beside a roaring fire. The bedrooms are bright and spacious with rustic wooden floors. Outside, a stream meanders and trees grow perfect for climbing. Our favourite feature, however, is the Railway Carriage bedroom, only available in the Summer. There’s no electricity but you can warm yourself by the characterful stove. Home truths: *While the location is perfectly secluded, it’s close to a forest farm *The TV and phone signal aren’t entirely reliable *The trampoline is unfenced so be careful with little ones *The Railway Carriage, which is fenced off from the rest of the garden, is available to rent at an extra cost during summer (there’s no electricity, but that’s part of the appeal) *The garden has changed since the photos were taken - the garden is larger and includes a trampoline, a campfire area, and plenty of space for children to play while the adults relax under the oak trees *A security deposit is required during your stay - ask your host about this prior to your stay *Upon arrival, your host will provide you with milk and a treat for a cup of tea
