Japonica Cottage - July 2018

Romantic thatched cottage, good kitchen, big garden and nearby walking routes.  Everything is well kept and very clean.

Fairytale Cottage

Located on a quiet lane, detached with fabulous garden you feel a million miles from everyone but actually only a short drive to all the New Forest areas of interest. The furnishings and kitchenware are of a very high standard, the house whilst having all the benefits of a modern home retains so many original features a real fairytale cottage, I and my family are eager to return.

 A Perfect Cottage in the heart of the New Forest

 Japonica Cottage is a beautiful 1650's thatched cottage with a wonderful sense of history. The old part is very well preserved but it also has the advantage of the addition of a separate large lounge, lovely bathroom and third bedroom.

 Set in a small hamlet, forest ponies stroll in the lane, while forest walks can be taken direct from the door. In summer it is a joy to eat in the garden but it's great to visit in Autumn and Winter as well - a firm favourite. There is also a pub within a short walking distance.
