Newly renovated: This 5 bedroom 'chocolate box' character thatched cottage on Beaulieu high street is just 2 minutes walk from the Village and 5 minutes walk from the river and Beaulieu Motor Museum. Perfectly located in the New Forest to explore.

The space

This beautiful 5 bedroom character cottage sleeps 10.

Dating back to circa 1590, this Grade II listed cottage has been newly re-thatched and beautifully renovated to a luxury standard. Perfect for a relaxing holiday with friends or family.

On the ground floor, the front entrance opens into stylish reception room with fireplace. Adjoining is a cozy snug with wood burning stove, Chesterfield sofa and TV.

There are two downstairs double bedrooms with English country garden views. The larger of these can be set up as a kingsize bed or twin beds. The other has a period 4 poster double bed. Both bedrooms have easy access to a spacious luxury shower room with walk in double shower.

The kitchen is laid out in a 'C' shape with an island. This large well equipped country kitchen has 2 dishwashers, an electric range with gas hob, 2 pull out fridges and a freezer. A bespoke oak table seats 10 with views out over the garden from patio doors on either side. A feature flight of stairs leads upstairs to the 5th bedroom.

Outside, the patio is equipped with a table, seating and a gas BBQ.

A backdoor leads into a boot/laundry room and downstairs cloakroom/toilet. Guests will have use of the washing machine, tumble drier and iron.

Upstairs Bedroom 1 is a spacious master bedroom with kingsize sleigh bed and chaise lounge (relax and admire the views out over Montagu Estate). An en-suite bathroom with shower and double slipper bath looks out over the garden.

Bedroom 2 is a smaller room but still large enough to accommodate a kingsize bed, again with views over the Montague Estate.

Bedroom 3 has a nautical feel. Accessed from the kitchen, it has wonderful views over the meadow behind the property. This room can be set up as a kingsize double or a twin with zip and link Hypnos beds for flexibility.

Chestnut Cottage is really well located for discovering Beaulieu and the surrounding areas. Situated just a stone's throw from the village, the cottage is extremely well appointed - cosy and stylish, intimate yet roomy. Do be careful if you are tall though - some of the ceilings in the original part of the house are very low. We had a lovely family trip, with children and grandparents all enjoying the cottage and it's facilities. Would definitely recommend for a family trip to this lovely part of the world. We managed to get 2 family cars in the driveway, but needed to negotiate the tight space a few times before getting the hang of it. The gardens are lovely, and caught the sun at most times of the day. Remember to take the rubbish out on a Monday night - this hadn't been mentioned in the original instructions. We had a great break and welcomed the lack of TV!

The house is as lovely as it looks in the photos and great for 6+ people- lots of space. Kitchen great and beds comfy. Master bedroom really impressive with equally impressive en suite. Had a little bit of confusion on where to park the two cars (as maximum two cars on drives), as the host wasn't there when we checked in we didn't know exactly which spots we could use but got there in the end. Also worth noting the road the house is on can get fairly busy/noisy at rush hour times. Overall a lovely place and would go back in a heart beat.

A lovely cottage in a lovely setting. Perfect for walking into Beaulieu and for exploring the new forest. Very clean facilities and plenty of bathrooms for the number of guests. The kitchen was great and the 2 dishwashers were very useful.
