Sleeping up to seven people in three bedrooms, this detached former ranger's cottage is set within the Avon Heath Country Park 2 miles from Ringwood near Saint Ives.

The Rowans is a detached single-storey cottage within the boundaries of the Avon Heath Country Park near Ringwood in Dorset. This cosy property has three bedrooms _ a king-size double with additional stacker bed and door out to the garden, another king-size double and a twin. There is a family bathroom, a fitted kitchen and a sitting room with open fire and dining area.

Outside is off road parking for three cars, and an enclosed lawned garden with furniture. With the walking and cycle trails of the park on the doorstep, as well as the visitor centre and children's play area, The Rowans makes a lovely base for a family get-away.


Lovely property, wonderful setting.
We were travelling with 3 boys under 10, myself, my wife and my parents plus one dog. The property was very spacious inside so we never felt crowded. Everything was finished to a high standard and lovely and clean. The property had only recently been opened and the park rangers (who manage the property) were keen to make it better and had already acted on comments left from the previous few guests, On the whole the property itself was lovely but when you consider the setting it becomes a truly wonderful place to stay. The house was surrounded by forest and the attached garden was very spacious indeed (although still a little rough around the edges), our 3 boys, who can be very loud at times, were able to make as much noise as they wanted without fear of bothering any neighbours. During our visit one of the rangers, Marco, visited to make sure everything was ok. We pointed out a couple of minor problems and he fixed one straight away and arranged for the other to be sorted the day after. On the whole he could not have been more helpful. In summary, very very happy with the stay, when the garden is a little more established then I see this property being very very popular.
