Forest Drove Cottage is our very own charming picturesque 300 year old thatched cottage close to all amenities and yet secluded, with 6 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms and cloakroom in the New Forest. Sleeps up to 11

This stunning cottage has a delightfully airy extension for the kitchen and dining area with underfloor heating and a cosy stove but also full of old world charm for the rest of the cottage, with beams, lattice windows and inglenook fireplace with wood stove. Within a very short walk of two pubs, a fish and chip shop, Tesco Express, a bakery and an off license, there are also great walks and cycle routes on the doorstep.

There are lovely gardens to front and rear with a childrens play frame and trampoline to rear and a decking area with garden seating and with barbecue. The decking is accessed through the patio doors of the extension. To the front you have a heated games room with darts and a multi games table including pool, air hockey and table tennis.

There is off road parking for 4 + cars with good road links and public transport nearby.
