Tranquil, Luxury 3 bed cottage, fabulous garden, wonderful views, village 5 mins
We moved to Burley 25 years ago and fell in love with the unique beauty of the area and New Forest life style, which coupled with the close proximity to some of the best beaches and coastline the South coast has to offer makes it the perfect location for relaxation and recreational pursuits. It was the most wonderful area in which to bring up our daughter and we feel very spolit to have lived in such a superb location yet less than 2 hours from London.
Nicole purchased this Cottage in 2016
Why Nicole chose Burley
Gardeners Retreat was originally built at the turn of the last century for the gardener of Shappen House. When an opportunity arose to purchase the cottage we were wowed by its superb location and lovely views, central to the village yet tucked away from the everyday hustle and bustle, so peaceful but not remote. We were lucky enough to secure the neighbouring Keepers cottage too and so set about restoring the cottage to a wonderful Forest home for family and guests to experience the lifestyle we have so enjoyed.

Loved our stay!
Beautiful cottage in a lovely location. Excellent booking process with friendly communication which continued once there with lots of helpful info about cottage. Furnished to a high standard, lovely large garden. We loved our stay!
Perfect private location in the heart of Burley
Our families stayed in Nicole’s two adjoining cottages and barn for my wedding. It was the perfect place to prep with the bridal party and accommodated everyone comfortably!
Because of the facilities available we were able to have dinner with a lot of guests which allowed for us to all spend a great few days as a group.
Nicole was very accommodating and has furnished each of her properties beautifully. Would definitely return to stay in the forest in the future. Only a short drive from other forest villages. 5-stars!
Luxurious, beautiful cottage in a great location
Tastefully furnished to a very high specification with everything you could need. A wonderful base to explore the surrounding area.
A beautiful well appointed luxury cottage
All our party truly loved staying here for a winter escape from the city and a small family reunion.
A great location for walks and pub lunches, and then drinks in the evening around the wood burner, followed by games nights at the table! Everyone commented on how comfy the beds were too. A perfect luxury cottage for fun filled days, cosy evenings, and great nights sleep, all made for the perfect weekend away.
On top of it all our 13 year old dog loved it too! She was running around the beautiful lawned garden like a puppy!
Can't wait to return!
Thank you Nicole and Dave, for making our stay so pleasurable.
