Located in the heart of the New Forest, Heywood Cottage offers a charming two bedroomed single-storey character cottage in a peaceful rural location. Set in six acres of garden with river frontage, this is truly a haven, with all manner of wildlife! We have a wood burning fire for those cosy winter days. You can enjoy fabulous walks in the Forest with lovely rural pubs to stop by at. Try horse riding or bring your bikes to go cycling.

Heywood Cottage originally dates from the 15th Century and has all the character and charm that comes with a building of this age. Our grounds are magnificent. You have three acres of garden to roam in at your will, with river frontage, table and chairs and a bench down by the river's edge. You can see all manner of deer, kingfishers on the river, mandarin ducks, herons and little egrets! This area is a haven for walkers and wildlife enthusiasts!

This cottage is a fantastic little getaway spot, on the outskirts of a small village but not too far away from Lymington and Brockenhurst. It is in a beautiful setting, with a small river running through nearby and a huge garden to enjoy. It's around 5 minutes to drive into the New Forest itself, and you'll see horses and ponies pretty much as soon as you cross over the first cattle grid. The nearest feature is a lake/pond, where you can see the horses splashing around if you're lucky. The cottage itself is very well equipped, with a big living room to relax in and a great kitchen for home cooking (if you can tear yourself away from eating in the many nearby pubs). The bedrooms are a good size, with comfy beds and plenty of storage space for clothes/etc. Claire was a great host, providing a high-chair for our littlest one, as well as being available for any questions in advance.

Idyllic setting in the forest. Minutes from country pubs, New Forest walks and seaside villages. Claire and Robert were both incredibly helpful prior to and during check-in. Couldn't recommend enough!

The cottage is stunning and the location is so peaceful. Claire is so approachable and welcoming. I would highly recommend a stay in this cottage. Beautiful walks and everything you could want for a perfect break. Thank you Claire for everything. We hope to come back next year. :)

We had a really nice stay, our beds were super comfortable and the cottage was really beautiful. Claire was friendly, easy to get hold of and provided simple easy to follow instructions on finding the cottage. The area is great and very close to Lymington which is full of nice shops, cafés and some of the best food around. Will definitely be planning a return trip!
