Beck Cottage, Woodgreen – 6 Bedroom 18th Century New Forest Thatched Cottage



This recently refurbished and extended 18th Century thatched cottage is located on a private lane with no passing traffic and with a very beautiful 0.5 acre garden with its own stream, summerhouse and large trampoline. The cottage is centrally positioned in the heart of this thriving New Forest village, only a couple of minutes walk to the best village store and post office in the National Park and a  20 minute walk to the Bat and Ball at Braemore. In the other direction, up the lane, within minutes you will find yourself on the village green and the cricket wicket and then out into the heart of the National Park. There really could not be a better located New Forest cottage for both convenience and ease of access to the New Forest National Park.

This picture perfect cottage, comprises a lounge with large wood burner and beamed ceiling, a separate dining room with a large table and seating for up to 12, a large kitchen/ diner with all the usual appliances including further seating for up to 7, a conservatory and a ground floor double bedroom with en-suite wet room. On the first floor, there is a master bedroom with a kingsize bed and en-suite shower room (and a secret staircase!), a twin bedroom with basin, a double bedroom, a family bathroom (with corner bath and separate shower) and separate toilet. On the second floor, there is a further double bedroom and another twin bedroom, enabling the cottage to accommodate up to 12 adults. Over the double carport, there is also an extensive games room with a full-size table tennis table and table football, for those wet days when perhaps the National Park is not quite so appealing.

Idyllic Cottage perfect for a family celebration

A brilliant 5 star review from our guests from Trip Advisor who stayed in Beck Cottage for May Bank holiday weekend.

As a family group of ten we enjoyed a fantastic weekend at Beck Cottage to celebrate a 75th and 80th birthday. The downstairs en-suite room was perfect for the birthday couple who are not able to manage stairs. There are a couple of steps up to the kitchen but it’s ideal for those who can’t manage lots of stairs. Walk in shower in the downstairs en-suite was also perfect. The room is cosy but suited them well. Other bedrooms and bathrooms are spacious with very comfortable beds. The communal areas are all lovely with space for everyone to spread out and do their own thing. We particularly enjoyed the conservatory and the stunning garden with the kids loved exploring. The 12 year old boys and big kids enjoyed the table tennis and table football in the games room. Woodgreen in a lovely pretty village with a friendly shop and the horse and groom pub is a stones throw from Beck Cottage. We only went there for a drink but it was friendly and pleasant.  We had a stunning celebratory meal at the Bat and Ball in Breamore which is less than a mile from the cottage and some of the group walked there. All in all a perfect and characterful thatched cottage in an excellent location for exploring the forest and fordingbridge. We will return.
