Ringwood, New Forest Cottages
The Apothecary's Cottage nestles within two and half acres of delightful garden within the New Forest National Park boundary and just half a mile's walk from open heath and ancient woodland. You're so close to nature here that you may be surprised by the odd deer or wild pony roaming throughout the garden! After undergoing an extensive and sympathetic refurbishment, the cottage provides fabulous holiday accommodation perfect for two families or a large group of friends. Inside, you'll find spacious and flexible living areas where modern comforts sit alongside elements of its original character, parts of which date from 17th century. Features such as the gas-fired AGA tucked into an old brick fireplace and the superb roll top bath in the family bathroom definitely catch the eye as well as providing a level of luxury you might expect from your holiday. You will not be disappointed!
