Overview

About the property

A delightfully comfortable self contained private annexe

Box Tree Cottage is a delightfully comfortable private annexe suitable for one or two adults.

It is light, bright and decorated in a simple fresh style with every consideration for your comfort yet retaining the character of the cottage. It has been refurbished to a high standard and offering non smoking accommodation for the comfort of our guests.

It is self contained and entirely private adjacent to the owners house. The annexe is open plan, light, bright and airy with windows at the front and back.

The inviting living room is well furnished with a comfortable sofa. There is a flat screen television with freeview, DVD and WiFi for your convenience.

The kitchenette has a dining table with two chairs There is a combination grill, microwave and oven with an electric two ring ceramic hob. You will find a good size fridge, kettle and toaster and all crockery, cutlery and kitchen equipment and utensils of good quality. A welcome basket provides a selection of teas, coffee, milk, sugar and biscuits and a few other treats.

At the end of the living room you will find a french door opening onto a secluded courtyard with patio table and two chairs which catches the morning sun and is a pleasant spot for breakfast.

Upstairs the galleried bedroom has a delightful oak double bedstead with luxury cotton bedding which leads onto a tastefully appointed en-suite shower room. All the bed linen, duvets and pillows provided are the specialist anti allergy range from John Lewis along with high quality towels. There is a good sized chest of drawers which allows for generous storage and ample hanging space. All the bed linen and towels provided are of good quality.

The annexe is cosy and warm from the efficient and effective electric heating which are on preset timers.

Downstairs you will find the 24" HD LED TV with freeview and integral DVD, a small selection of games and books, local maps and activity guide.

Upstairs, both bedside tables have reading lights as well as relaxing wall lights on dimmer switches, a small travel clock and radio. In the en-suite shower room there is a razor socket, heated towel rail and mira electric sport shower. There are full instructions on how to use all the electrical items in the annexe.

On arrival you will find a designated safe parking area on the drive at the front of the cottage with easy access to your private entrance. A key safe allows you to arrive at your convenience.

The annexe is adjacent to my home and I have my entrance on the opposite side and at the back of the cottage. Guests will be given my numbers or can just knock on my door. Please do not hesitate to ask, I am there to help out if needed. We may meet on the drive there but be assured that you will be left quietly to enjoy your time away.

Everton village is is a quiet and ideal location to explore the New Forest National Park with its picturesque villages such as Brockenhurst. The sailing town of Lymington provides wonderful walks around its sea wall, great restaurants cafes and a large variety of shops and designer boutiques.

Within walking distance, you will find Milford on Sea with its promenade, clean beaches, traditional pubs and cafes, for example only a mile away Braxton Gardens tea rooms and cafe serves morning coffee, lunches and afternoon teas. All food served is organic and locally sourced.

There are numerous opportunities for walking, cycling, picnics in the beautiful scenery of the New Forest with its natural harbours such as Keyhaven, Beaulieu and Bucklers Hard. I am happy to give personal recommendations of restaurants, cafes or places to visit.

And last but certainly not least, the friendly Everton village store is just at the end of the lane offering a wide range of groceries, fresh bread, fruit and vegetables and an excellent selection of wines, beers and spirits. The Post Office counter provides easy banking facilities.

At the other end of the lane, barely a a five minute walk is The Crown Pub serving lunch and dinner to a very high standard.

It is the most ideal to arrive by car as the bus services are limited. The nearest mainline station is Brockenhurst with direct trains to London and all other railway networks. Trains go to Southampton and Bournemouth both of which have large shopping centres, for example, West Quay in Southampton or a day out on the train from Brockenhurst to Weymouth where you will find the journey interesting and Weymouth has a wonderful beach, sea front and harbour pubs.

Excellent..

  • 5 of 5

Me and my girlfriend enjoyed a lovely stay at Box Tree Cottage. It’s fully equipped and spacious enough for two people. Decor is nice. Everything is clean and tidy.

Good location for visiting the New Forest and surrounding areas. Linda was very knowledgable and suggested many places to visit.

Would have been nice to have a small wardrobe. Although it did have lots of drawer space.

A perfect bolt hole for 2

We had a lovely stay over the bank holiday weekend.

The annexe is perfect for 2 and well equipped for a short break.

Perfect location for walking and close to the coast too.

Small, beautifully done and a good base

  • 4 of 5

The 'annex' is absolutely beautiful, decorated with great care and spotless. Linda made us very welcome. She is kind, friendly and very helpful and we were delighted to meet her. The 'annex' although extremely comfortable, felt too cramped for us hence the 4 stars. We were only staying 3 nights so it was fine. Parking the car was tricky as the road is narrow and the entrance to the parking space restricted by the hedge but we got the hang of it eventually. There is a very useful convenience store around the corner and the people there are lovely.

We have just a couple of suggestions: add possibility for recycling plastic/glass/paper (could not see any alternative to the black bin so took back home recyclable) and a ladle for soups would be nice!

Extremely comfortable and high spec

  • 5 of 5

This is a cosey little annex with everything you could want. The decor is tasteful and finished to a high spec. It's located in a peaceful location with a very friendly village pub serving good food and beer. We enjoyed some beautiful walks and a great meal at La Perle in Milford-on- Sea which is a very short taxi ride away.

My only recommendation is that you consider providing some information on how to recycle (we took ours away with us).

Would highly recommend Box Tree cottage and the location!

I hope you enjoy your stay and enjoy making the most of the beautiful area. You will find a box full of information about all the interesting things to do and see whilst you are here including maps.

Everton village is a quiet and ideal location to explore the New Forest National Park with its picturesque villages.

The sailing town of Lymington provides wonderful walks around its sea wall, great restaurants, cafes and a large variety of shops and boutiques. On Saturday you will find the entire high street is taken over by a market offering high quality local produce, furniture, plants, flowers, clothes - a real interesting browse.

Great places to eat would be Caio Belli in Gosport street which is fantastic for lunch. Either The Ship Inn, The Mayflower and The Kings Head in Lymington are all near the quay and good places for Saturday evening.

Milford on Sea has a small promenade and clean beaches, traditional pubs and cafes - do investigate the Raft on the Rocks cafe/restaurant.

Just half a mile away, Braxton Gardens tea rooms and cafe serves morning coffee, lunches and afternoon teas and all the food served is organic and locally sourced.

We have The Crown in Everton which does a great Sunday lunch and is at the end of our lane.

There are numerous opportunities for walking, cycling and picnics in the beautiful scenery of the New Forest with its natural harbours such Keyhaven, Beaulieu or Bucklers Hard.
