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 inglenook fireplace. Adjoining is a cozy snug with wood burning stove, and Chesterfield sofa.

There are two downstairs double bedrooms with English country garden views. The larger of these (Bedroom 3) can be set up as a kingsize bed or twin beds. The other (Bedroom 5) 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. Bedrooms 1&2 are accessed via steep stairs which may not be suitable for elderly or infirm.

Bedroom 5 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.

Where you’ll be

Beaulieu, England, United Kingdom

Situated at the top of Beaulieu High street, this beautifully renovated cottage overlooks meadows yet is just 2 minutes walk from the village shops and 5 minutes walk from the Beaulieu river and National Motor Museum.

Located in the New Forest, Chestnut Cottage is at the heart a unique and wonderful national park on the south coast of England.
