Hawthorns Cottage is located down a quiet path in the pretty village of Pikes Hill, on the edge of Lyndhurst. The cosy cottage has been recently renovated, and has lovely light rooms with plenty of period features. It's in a quiet location, with easy access to the amazing New Forest countryside, as well as being close to the amenities in Lyndhurst - including pubs, tea rooms, gift shops, restaurants, takeaways, bus tours and the New Forest visitor centre. A really great location for a holiday.

The space
Hawthorns Cottage is a characterful Edwardian end of terrace cottage in the beautiful and tranquil Pikes Hill area of Lyndhurst, in the heart of the New Forest National Park.

With parking in a layby on the side of the road, a small gravel ginnel leads to the cottage.

Through a gate and into the front garden, this is a pretty and enclosed area, with gravelled area and a bistro table and chairs. With the benefit of direct sun throughout the morning, this is a lovely spot for breakfast.

Entering through the front door into the small hallway, you turn left into a good-sized bright sitting room, with stripped floorboards, open fire, SMART TV and comfortable sofa and chairs. A door leads to the good sized kitchen/diner with a dishwasher, gas hob and oven, Belfast sink and lovely handmade wooden kitchen units. Off the kitchen is a small larder, containing fridge freezer, and a separate downstairs toilet/cloakroom, which also contains a washing machine. A highchair is available.

A stable door leads to the enclosed rear garden, which gets the afternoon and evening sun. The garden has a small patio area, with dining table and chairs, as well as a lawn and well stocked flower and herb beds. There is a small shed with room for storing 2 bikes if required, as well as separate gated access down another ginnel to the road.

Upstairs the cottage has a very large double bedroom at the front of the house, with large wardrobe and chest of drawers. This room has plenty of room for a travel cot, which we can provide (though guests will need to bring bedding for this). The smaller second bedroom has twin 3 ft single beds. The newly fitted luxurious bathroom has a beautiful D shaped bath with a fantastic rainhead shower.

The house is old and full of character, but has the modern benefits of double glazing, gas central heating and cooking, and a brand new bathroom.

The cottage is in a fantastic location – 10 minutes walk from the centre of Lyndhurst, known as the capital of the New Forest National Park. Despite the proximity to the town, the house is extremely peaceful, and a 1 minute walk in the opposite direction leads across the cattle grids and into the forest itself, with ancient woodlands, heaths and bogs, and the world famous New Forest Ponies.

The cottage is very easy to get to, situated only 15 minutes from the A31/M27 trunk roads. The nearest mainline station is at Brockenhurst, 5 miles away, with direct trains to London Waterloo, Manchester, York and Bournemouth.

Other things to note
· Stairs are relatively steep and narrow, as would be expected in a cottage of this type. A stairgate is provided at the top of the stairs if required.
· Parking in a layby on the road outside.
