Launching July 2021, 'Stag' is a stylish and bright railway cottage that offers comfortable accommodation and everything you would need for a relaxing getaway. Carefully designed 2 bedroom cottage is a perfect base for shopping, eating out, exploring the New Forest and the local beaches. Located in the centre of Ringwood, close to Bournemouth and Salisbury and a host of nearby attractions, our space is great for a stay-cation, as a work-from-home alternative, or for families.

The space
'Stag' is a 2-bedroom end terrace railway cottage located in the heart of Ringwood, on the outskirts of the New Forest. Brand new for 2021, the cottage has undergone an extensive programme of work in order to provide our Guests with the exceptional comfort and quality.

As you step through the front door, you are immediately welcomed by our living space - bright lounge and dining area. Chesterfield sofa, 50'' smart TV with Netflix and Prime, excellent WiFi, and dining table for 6 - all in place to ensure your relaxing stay with us. In the centre of the room there is mighty Charnwood wood burner and a stack of logs and kindling for those cozy autumnal and wintery evenings in front of the fire.

From the living / dining area you will walk into our well-equipped kitchen with German design kitchen units and Bosch appliances. There’s also plenty of crockery, cutlery, glasses, saucepans and cooking utensils for our Guests to use. Please note there is no washing machine at the property.

Adjacent to the kitchen there is useful lockable lean-to space - perfect home-from-home for our furry Guests, or a bicycle storage for those keen cyclists.

At the back of the cottage there is a private courtyard garden with a selection of shrubs and plants - perfect area to just sit back and relax with your favourite tipple after the bustle of the town.

Upstairs you will find 2 double bedrooms with king size beds, excellent quality bedding and towels. There is also wardrobe storage and hanging space for your belongings. If required, we can provide a travel cot and a high chair for our youngest guests.

Next to the bedrooms is the bathroom, which comes with walk-in double shower, double-end bath, wash hand basin, heated towel rail and WC. We also provide shampoo and shower gel, in case you forget to pack it in your suitcase.

The cottage comes with 2 off-street parking spaces.

Dogs welcome. Please mention at the time of your booking if you are bringing your dog with you, and we will provide some extra towels for those muddy paws. Please note we don't allow dogs on furniture or on beds.

The New Forest is the perfect place for a break all year around; fantastic sunny days in the Summer and fabulous blustery days in the Winter - all with amazing views and great opportunities for healthy exploration. If you are looking for a romantic break or action-packed time, then Ringwood, Brockenhurst, Lymington, Lyndhurst, New Forest & Solent waters are ideal and cottage will provide a perfect oasis to relax after a busy day. From reading a book, al fresco dinner, or takeaway from a local pub, the property and gardens offers the perfect getaway.

Where you’ll be

Hampshire, England, United Kingdom

Ringwood sits between two forests: Ringwood Forest with its wealth of pine trees and cycle paths includes Moors Valley Country Park, and the New Forest National Park, which offers thousands of acres of moor, heath and woodlands where ponies, donkeys and cattle roam free. You may also see wild deer, foxes, badger, rabbits and a wide variety of birds. Both forests are fantastic for exploring whether on foot, bike or horse.

Ringwood offers:

- A comprehensive range of shops both independently owned and national chains such as Phase Eight, Jaeger, Fat Face, Clarkes, W.H. Smith etc.
- A wealth of cafeterias and restaurants including Italian, Thai, Tapas and Indian; mainly independents but with a few chains such as Caffè Nero, and Prezzo.
- Local pubs within walking distance and they offer a range of local ales.
- Four supermarkets: Waitrose, Sainsbury's, Lidl and Iceland plus few local shops
- Coarse fishing on the River Avon; day tickets can be purchased from the tackle shops in West Street.
- Mountain bike off road trails in both forests and BMX obstacle course at Moors Valley.
- Spinnaker Sailing Club and New Forest Water Park within a few minutes' drive.
- Riding schools nearby offering hacks across the New Forest for both the beginner and the more experienced rider.
- 12 miles from Bournemouth and its award winning beaches and lively nightlife.
- 15 miles from Salisbury where you will find Stonehenge and the tallest Cathedral Spire in England.
- Half a dozen golf courses within a 10/15 minute drive.
- Two theme parks within 15 minutes drive: Paulton's Park and Adventure Wonderland.
- 30 mins drive from Poole and Sandbanks.

In terms of dog walks I could recommend a few places:
* Rockford Common just by the Moyles Court School - 10 mins drive from the cottage, very popular with walkers and dogs, vast open space and if you follow the path all the way down after about 35-45 mins you could reach The Red Shoot Inn pub. Further up the road there is The High Corner Inn pub where you can often find horses in their beer garden but that's probably a bit too far to walk from Rockford Common to be fair. Alternatively, there is The Alice Lisle pub on your right on your way back to the cottage with a lovely lake setting;
* Another popular place is Picket Post and Vereley just off A31, about 10 mins drive from the cottage, both favourites with my dogs and me. On a sunny day you could see for miles and I've seen loads of deer in Vereley too. If you follow the road down from Picket Post you will end up in Burley and that's a lovely place for cream teas. The village is famous for witchcraft. Both the White Buck and the Queen's Head are great pubs too, White Buck particularly when the fire is on. The White Buck gets booked up really quickly, so making a reservation ahead of your visit would be recommended.
* Couple of miles up from Burley you could stop at the Wilverley Inclosure - the path goes in a circle and the walk is approx. 1h right through the forest. And it's so quiet too. Couple of miles from Wilverley on the left there is Horseshoe Bottom walk - another big open space with lovely views. And from there it's just a short drive to Brockenhurst and the Huntsman of Brockenhurst pub - very popular with tourists and locals. For a lovely evening dinner I could also recommend the Pig in Brockenhurst.
* Finally one of the best places to see the old forest is probably the Deer Sanctuary in Bolderwood however that's 20-25 mins drive from the cottage. There is a viewing platform from where you could watch herd of deer, a lovely walk to explore the forest and the Bolderwood Arboretum Ornamental Drive road is as picturesque drive as you can get - it's full of bends and turns but it's worth the drive. And up from there just off A35 there is The Oak Inn pub in Bank or the Fox and Hound in Lyndhurst.
