It’s the personal touches that set this cottage apart. A welcome hamper with milk, bread, eggs, juice and even a bottle of wine awaits your arrival in the kitchen. Though with the nearest village of Bransgore just two miles away, stocking up shouldn’t be a problem either. There’s something of a Tuscan villa feel to the cottage itself, with wooden shutters adorning the windows and a pergola outside above a wrought-iron table and chairs. In sunny months, a barbecue dinner is on the cards, and the hosts can arrange for a local butcher to prepare some meat for you. Inside, the living room is a cosy space and the dining area is a picture of country-chic with a classic dresser displaying the crockery. In a nod to tradition, the master bathroom has a gorgeous roll-top rub, perfect for a soak after a day exploring the cycling trails and hiking paths of the nearby New Forest. If you don’t fancy cooking, there’s a 17th-century inn a fifteen-minute walk away.
