About Potting Shed Sopley
I live locally in Bournemouth with a young family, who keep me on my toes! Before children I was a physiotherapist, but now dedicate most of my time to looking after our 2 small children and supporting my husband who is training to be a vicar.
Potting Shed Sopley purchased this Cottage in 2000
Why Potting Shed Sopley chose Sopley
My parents bought 21 Sopley in 1979 as they were driving through Sopley for under £20,000 and took me and my sister to this cottage for years. It was a real "step back in time" with no telephone or TV and frequently frozen pipes! We loved exploring the New Forest and beaches locally. Later, my Dad bought a plot of land next door and put a Potting Shed on it for storage. in 2016 we decided it would be more use as a holiday chalet so worked on converting it into a simple one bedroom chalet with a quiet loft space. It is now a lovely self-contained cottage with a large living, kitchen, dining area and beautiful garden to enjoy the outdoors.
What makes this Cottage unique
Although you are relatively close to "civilization" it still feels quiet and peaceful staying at the Potting Shed. The garden is full of nature and in the summer it is especially nice for enjoying the sunshine and perhaps a BBQ. In winter there is a log burner stove to give the Potting Shed a really "cosy" feel. There is a pub opposite, the Woolpack for easy access to food or drink.

Georgous property to stay in and a gorgeous location - defienetly worth visiting again and again
The potting shed is lovely, the photos don't do it justice. A great location for exploring the new forest, very clean and great amenities.
Peace and tranquility
Had a lovely four day stay at 'The Potting Shed' everything was just perfect, would definitely come back again.
Comfortable and compact - perfect
I stayed at The Potting Shed alone and, because of its compactness, I felt very cosy and comfortable there. The immediate neighbours are quite quiet and the fact that there was a gate to the property gave an added sense of cosiness. I was able to do lots of walks in the local area and beyond and enjoy all the wildlife and the coastal scenery, as well as take lots of pictures, so it was a perfect holiday for me.
Wonderful few days
The Potting Shed had everything we needed, in a wonderful location. We had a lovely stay, exploring the local area.
For those who enjoy the outdoors there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy walking and cycling in the New Forest or Avon Valley Footpath which runs through Sopley village. Also well suited for anglers wanting to fish in the two local rivers or the Mudeford Estuary. There are excellent nearby beaches including Bournemouth, Mudeford and Hengistbury Head.
Christchurch, Ringwood, Bournemouth and Salisbury are all close by and offer excellent days out for those wanting to enjoy time visiting historical buildings or shopping. Poole and its exceptional harbour, favoured by sailors is a short drive away and offers plenty to explore within the Purbeck peninsula and Jurassic Coast.
