Magnolia Cottage, sleeping four guests, is situated within the beautiful grounds of the Heathfield Estate, ideally located to explore the New Forest and the Dorset coast.

Magnolia Cottage provides unique and beautifully furnished accommodation for four guests. The open plan ground floor layout is split over two levels including a well equipped kitchen, dining area and comfortable sitting room. French doors open out on to the outdoor patio and garden which is perfect for al-fresco dining.

Upstairs you will find two attractive en-suite bedrooms with zip and link beds which can be made up as double or single beds depending on individual requirements. The cottage is one of two properties set within the grounds of Heathfield House, situated in Holmsley and enjoying a unique position. In one direction, explore and discover the beauty of the New Forest, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with its country pubs and many activities such as cycling, horse riding and walking.

In the other direction, enjoy the blue flag beaches, coastal walks, crabbing, sailing and many other water sports. Indulge yourself in a modern and comfortable environment, secluded and private but not isolated - ideally placed for exploring the area. The New Forest National Park is one of the largest remaining forests in England.

The forest was created by William I in about 1079 for the royal hunt. At that time they hunted the deer that still live in the forest. They are shy creatures but you might be lucky enough to spot one around Heathfield.

Wild ponies and donkeys roam the open heath in the New Forest area. The ponies are one of our best-loved native breeds, it is their grazing that maintains the open character of the forest. The New Forest is famous for its ancient trees.

You can see beech trees that are 400 years old, oaks that are 800 years old, and even some yew trees that are said to be 1000 years old that were here when William I and his descendants used the forest for hunting. For larger groups, take a look at the Coach House (HA020) sleeping eight guests, which can be booked separately or together with Magnolia Cottage.
