It would be hard to find a more perfect location than Gorse Cottage. Our front garden looks out directly on to the New Forest and a secluded back garden overlooks fields where horses graze. Ponies, donkeys, pigs and deer are often to be seen outside the front gate.

The cottage is situated a mile from the popular village of Brockenhurst in the heart of the New Forest, where the main line station connects London and Bournemouth. The cottage was awarded the prestigious five star Gold English Tourist Board grading in May 2013. This is the highest award available for a self-catering cottage.

In recent years, the cottage closed to facilitate a large extension and greatly improved facilities. The new cottage is has 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms (3 en-suite), a large living room, kitchen/breakfast room and an impressive conservatory. The cottage is fully refurnished with state of the art equipment such as a flat screen TV, range cooker, new bathrooms.

There is a new kitchen, new furniture, new bedding and linen. The ancient New Forest landscape, where ponies, cattle and even pigs are free to roam is a lovely spot for walking, cycling and anyone who wants to enjoy the countryside, yet offering all the amenities of a holiday area. It is within easy reach of the coast and sailing facilities at Lymington.

Southampton and Bournemouth are nearby and the beautiful Dorset coastline is within easy reach. Riding stables and bike hire shops are available in the area. We have a lockable bicycle shed if you want to bring your own bikes with you.

The Balmer Lawn Hotel is just 400 metres away, giving you access to indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a gym, sauna and jacuzzi, tennis courts and squash courts for a low daily rate. The New Forest Show takes place in late July. There are lots of facilities and equipment for children and babies, including a fantastic play house in the back garden.

It?s a house for all seasons. We have the conservatory for the summer, beautiful forest walks in the Autumn, a cosy warm cottage for the winter and the colourful Exbury Gardens nearby for the Spring. Guests regularly return, often every year.

We hope that this is testimony to the quality of the accommodation and effort made to maintain high standards.We welcome well behaved dogs. We have extremely modern facilities and offer WiFi internet access.
