Lovely cottage in Bransgore, Nr Christchurch, New Forest, Hampshire, England - Peaceful Location,15 minutes drive to the Beach
This pretty, detached, ‘chocolate box’, thatched holiday cottage lies a few miles from the Dorset coast, on the edge of the New Forest National Park which is hugely popular for excellent walks, cycling and horse riding routes. The cottage is an ideal retreat for families, with many character features and a hot tub in the garden’s summer house. Enjoy sandy beaches at Mudeford, Bournemouth and Poole. Burley and Christchurch are just 3 miles away. Shops mile, nearest of 3 pubs, 100 yards.
Kitchen with dining area, gas/electric range (for cooking) and tiled floor. TV. Large living room with wooden floor, TV/DVD. WiFi. Snug with TV/DVD. Small step down to compact double bedroom with additional bunk above (for +1) TV/DVD. Bathroom with roll-top bath, shower and toilet. First floor: Two double bedrooms, one with 6ft bed, one with additional single bed (for +1). Both bedrooms have TV/DVD. Shower room with toilet. Some rooms with beams and low ceilings/doorways.
Four Oaks can sleep 8, however due to the compact bunk room arrangement (on the ground floor) it may not be wholly suitable for 8 adults. It does however comfortably suit various family dynamics. This point is only highlighted to avoid any disappointment as I wish guests to always enjoy Four Oaks for all that this beautiful property and region have to offer. From April to Sept the minimum stay is 7 nights and changeover day is a Friday. However, we may be able to be a little more flexible for your requirements if the situation allows us to.

Great cottage, location and locals are wonderful!
Not only did the cottage surpass our expectations but so did the surroundings. There is so much to do locally and the information leaflets left in the cottage were a god-send. The local pubs are fantastic and the people in the Carpenters were so friendly! Can't wait to go back :)
House was well stocked. Had a good stay
Perfect for our large family
The house was cosy and inviting with a huge kitchen dining hall, perfect for our large family with two babies and dogs.
It was very well appointed, enough of everything, comfortable beds and a large sitting room. The enclosed garden was brilliant for the dogs, playing croquet and boules. The babies loved the play house too.
The cottage was in a superb location for the forest and beaches and within walking distance of shops and pubs.
I would recommend this very comfortable homely house
Everything you would want and more, excellant property best we have stayed at in this country
We had great weather which helped, the area is ideal for sightseeing plenty to interest all, local Inns are friendly and serve good food and drink. the cottage had everything you (and dogs) needed for a comfortable stay.
Fun family holiday
We have just had an excellent week in this cottage. We have 2 young children and everything we needed was there. Surrounding area brilliant for cycling, walking and pepper pig world. Lots of pubs. Especially enjoyed eating at the crown inn food and atmosphere was lovely.
The best we've ever stayed at! We loved it!
We've stayed at lots of holiday homes over the years. Four Oaks is 'the' one that has ticked the most boxes for us. The location is excellent for the lovely beaches and stunning New Forest. The cottage is beautiful, tastefully furnished, thoughtfully equipped and the hot tub was a lovely bonus. We'll be back!
