A picture perfect cottage for 4, only a 20 minute walk through the forest to a lovely wild beach or 10 minutes walk to a gastro pub. The lane itself is a firm favourite of the local donkeys, the garden is private and gets wonderful afternoon sun. Fifty metres from the front door is the National Park heathland and from there you can walk for miles and miles. What's not to love?

Rowes Lane is one of the quirky little areas of the New Forest that are a pleasure to find. The donkeys that live locally here often sleep overnight outside the house. There is a farm at the end of the no-through lane and only about 15 cottages and houses, with forest and fields behind them on all sides. It's a genial spot.

The cottage has had a total renovation 8 years ago. The owner is Norwegian and her clean and uncluttered style shines forth. The kitchen, bathroom and hallway have underfloor heating. Bedrooms are styled on 'less is more' and are very comfortable. No pets here please. This house suits those who have allergies.

The garden is having a new deck/terrace area, new lighting, new furniture ready for early July 2021.

Rowes Cottage i​s available for rent with New Forest Escapes, who are a small local holiday cottage agency. We are all locals and know the property and area inside out. Do contact us for help.

Inside:

Walk in through the main front door into a small hallway. From there on your right is the open plan living/dining room which is a good size and well set up for guests. It feels lovely and light in here because in the renovation bifold doors were added. This is where the deck/terrace renovation is happening this spring ready for guests in May 2021.

The kitchen is practical and smart. There is plenty to cook with. The kitchen table seats 4.

The bedroom and bathroom pictures here are indicative. The rooms are a reasonable size. You can put a travel cot in either. The bathroom has a shower and bath and is smart, sparkly and in great condition.

Outside:

The pretty cottage garden is mainly laid to lawn, south west facing and well fenced. It picks up the afternoon and evening sun well and can get really toasty by the house. The terrace area by the bifold sitting room doors gets really warm. Fold the doors back and bask in the sunshine in the house. It's a glorious spot.

There is a bike shed that you can lock. The parking is easy to access from the lane. It will fit all but the very large 4x4 cars.

Home Truths

The donkeys and ponies that live wild in this area will be ready to get into the garden the moment you leave the gate open. Watch out. They're cute but cunning!

The fireplace here isn't functional.

The owner is a professional musician (opera singer) and the piano is one of her treasures. It is in excellent condition and is locked for all guests. However, if you are a pianist, or a child prodigy, then you can ask us for the key. You must promise that your group will not rest cups or scratch of damage it, nor bang on it. Really this is very important. We will take pictures before and after your stay to check it's condition. Please call the office for more info' and you may be able to have the key.

Accessibility:

The house is single story with no steps inside. The shower has no specific set up for those with mobility challenges but it is a good size. There is a small step up into the house through the front door.

Where you’ll be

East End, England, United Kingdom

We love the location here. You’re between Lymington (with all it’s shops, marinas and foodie options) and Beaulieu (think a perfectly-pretty red-brick village and estate with all the trimmings – and a car museum). Your local shops compete for eccentricity. They’re both great. East Boldre and Pilley stores are equidistant. Ponies and donkeys often hover at the door of both…

Exploring from here on foot is great. Fifty metres from the front door and you’re out into the National Park heathland, you’ll pass a lily pond, miles of heath dotted with ponies and donkeys, past ancient forests (we love Gypsy Wood with it’s rope swings and massive oaks) or the Hollies, great for picnics and feeling like you’re miles from everywhere. Walking to the beach from here is a treat. The footpath takes you through the forest and out toward a lovely wild beach at Tanners Lane.

The nearest pub is the East End Arms, a well known gastro pub. A 10 minute walk along the lane.

New Forest Escapes is a small and homegrown holiday rental agency. All the properties here are rented through that business. If you want to contact us about the properties, then please search for us online and contact us direct. Sarah and Susan who work for us in the office, know every house really well and will help answer any details and help you. You can still book through Airbnb if you wish.

We have plenty of reviews and have had return guests come back to us time and time again over the 9 years we've been renting houses.

The most common reason for us to refuse an Airbnb enquiry is that the person is enquiring about a house that we feel isn't as suitable as another house we manage. If this happens, we will try to send you a 'Special Offer' or call us directly.

Rachel started renting houses 10 years ago and the business became New Forest Escapes 4 year ago. We're here to help.
