It is simple but luxurious villa with a very high standard of finish. the bathroom well appointed ,spacious / comfortable and living room with an open fire perfect for nights in. The small village is a perfect setting with a great gastro pub (Rose & Thistle) and multiple walks around. It is close enough to the New Forest to visit everyday but different enough to feel a different country ...

We didn't tell the owners we were going staying for our honeymoon and as soon as they knew they hand delivered a generous welcome pack. Simply we will be back.

About the location
Salisbury 11 miles; Bournemouth 18 miles.
Fordingbridge is a traditional Hampshire town on the banks of the River Avon, and offers a good mix of shops, pubs and restaurants, a small museum of local history and a display of original work by the artist Augustus John, who lived here for many years. The medieval Great Bridge, with seven graceful arches, is a major feature of the town. The immediate area is a wonderful place for visitors, with its beautiful scenery, nature havens, cycleways and welcoming people. Fordingbridge is conveniently situated for the magnificent cathedral city of Salisbury to the north, and the super seaside resort of Bournemouth to the south. The stunning New Forest National Park is only 1.5 miles from the town, where you can explore thousands of acres of moor, heath and woodland frequented by wild ponies, and dotted with quaint villages and country pubs. Within a short drive is the magnificent Elizabethan manor house at Breamore, as well as the New Forest Water Park, and a trip to Beaulieu, home of the National Motor Museum is not to be missed. This is a great location for exploring this picturesque and interesting area.
