Fordingbridge, New Forest National Park Hampshire, Hampshire, England
A pet-friendly holiday cabin in a peaceful rural setting with it's own private, dog-proof garden. No traffic, no street lights, plenty of space and lovely wooded walks in all directions. 'Cabin' somewhat undersells the accommodation but it is on one level and is beautifully appointed.

Perfect for families and romantic couples seeking a rural idyll to get away from it all.

The large, private west-facing garden is a sun trap and perfect for barbecuing as the sun goes down.

Inside, the brand new kitchen has all the conveniences including a washer/dryer, dishwasher, ceramic hob, fan oven, microwave etc. The lounge features a 32" TV/DVD player with Free-view, an electric 'wood-burning' stove for chilly evenings and two comfy sofas.

The sunny master bedroom has a comfortable king-sized bed, goose down pillows and en...

This place was absolutely perfect for my wife and our two kids (toddler and baby). Really easy to get to all the parts of the new forest that we wanted and for days where we didn't want to do much we could just walk around the grounds, feed the chickens - our kids were so happy!

Management response:

Thank you for your lovely review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay. Do come again!

We decided on a last minute break for my partner to enjoy his birthday and recover from an operation. Despite the owner being on holiday herself, nothing was too much trouble for her. She made sure the cabin was ready for us and it was perfect. Spotlessly clean and beautifully presented. it was also perfect for our dog, who spent...

About the neighborhood
Damerham is a lovely rural English village in the Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It has a great village pub and historic Norman church. There is excellent walking straight from the front door in all directions and the New Forest - thousands of acres of King John's ancient hunting ground - to walk, explore and relax in just a short drive away.Slightly further away there are numerous picturesque villages and market towns including Salisbury with its stunning historic cathedral.The coast is under an hour;s drive with sailing, stunning beaches, more stunning scenery and fascinating fossils.
Getting around
We are within a half - hours drive of Southampton and Bournemouth airports and only 1.5 hours from Gatwick and Heathrow. Train links are excellent but we are out in the countryside and you would need to hire a car to make the most of this wonderful part of the world. There is plenty of parking here at October House (as well as chickens, horses, dogs and cats!!)
