Situated on the north/west side of the New Forest National Park, a very short drive from the historic market towns of Fordingbridge and Ringwood, ‘Maurietty’ offers an idyllic place to relax and unwind. Located away from roads and a short way along a forest track, it is set on the edge of our 3 ½ acre grounds with stunning south facing views across our paddocks and countryside beyond. However you are not completely isolated here - there is quick and easy access to all main roads for visitors to explore the many villages, towns, cities and beaches that Hampshire, Dorset and Wiltshire have to offer (if you can tear yourself away from your little retreat!).

There is a footpath at the back of our house which goes along the edge of our paddocks which is the best route to take to Hockeys Farm Shop and cafe, The Royal Oak Pub is a 20 minute walk away and there is another café 'The Potting Shed' which I highly recommend (closed on Mondays) which is approx. a 15/20 minute lovely walk through The New Forest to the village of Hyde.

This shepherd's hut offers character and comfort in spades. The little bijou beauty is like a tardis offering a warm and cosy retreat. Inside the fully insulated bespoke hut you'll find all the comforts to make it a home from home. A shower room with 800x800 shower, wc, wash basin and electric ladder radiator. A kitchenette with belfast sink, cafetiere, kettle, toaster, electric cooking pot, small chiller fridge, all cutlery and crockery for 2 and electric radiator. The 4'6" double bed is built in across one end of the hut with storage underneath, a window and tv with built in freesat and dvd player for those british rainy days when you might want to tuck up and get cosy and watch a film. South facing double french doors flood the hut with sunshine on brighter days and provide a beautiful view out across open fields.

Access to the property is via an electric gated entrance for which you will be provided with a code.

The site once formed part of Ibsley RAF base during World War II. The block of stables that you look out onto is the old latrine block and a couple of Stanton air raid shelters are in the paddock. Literally to the rear of the hut is the open New Forest. Horse riders frequently go by as well as wildlife such as the New Forest ponies, cattle, donkeys, deer, foxes, badgers and an abundance of birds such as buzzards which are often seen circling above the trees during the summer months.

Riding stables 10 min drive, watersports/fishing 2 miles, award-winning 'Hockey's Farm' shop and café 10 min walk, the lovely 'Royal Oak' thatched pub and restaurant 20 min walk, 'The Potting Shed' café at Hyde 20 min walk. Ringwood (with a Waitrose, Lidl and Sainsbury's) 5 miles and Fordingbridge (with a Co-op and Tesco Express) 2.5 miles.

Please see 'Getting Around' section for walking directions to local farm shop, pub and cafe.

****Please have a look through the ‘house rules’ and it’s important you follow my directions to find us easily.

I would love to share our beautiful tranquil corner of The New Forest with you. You can unwind and disconnect from the busy outside world and reconnect with nature and the countryside. Our listings are self contained and private for your own personal use and you check yourselves in so really are left to it! You’re more likely to meet a wild pony than another human being! However, I am on hand and close by if you need me at all and we have a couple of great cafes, an award winning farm shop and a lovely thatched local pub all within walking distance.
I have very high cleaning standards and do a deep thorough clean between each reservation.
I look forward to welcoming you!

During your stay

I am often not at home when my guests arrive hence why I leave the key in the door. However I am always contactable by phone or via the Airbnb messaging service and try to reply to my guests as soon as I see their message. I tend to communicate with my guests via email or text before and after they have arrived with information or to make sure they are settled in etc. Of course one of us will always pop over and say hi if we see our guests, but we are not the sort of hosts who like to come knocking on doors as we feel we are intruding upon guests private space. Please feel free to come and go as you please in the knowledge that we are around if you should need us.
