    > Enjoying a wonderfully peaceful, scenic and rural location, surrounded by fields where horses often graze, this delightful, detached, Grade II listed cottage is accessed via a long gravel driveway, set back from a country lane, yet only 10 minutes’ drive to Lymington or 5 minutes’ to Brockenhurst. The popular local pub serving fine fayre is within ½-mile via a footpath or ¾-mile by road. Pond Cottage has been lovingly and carefully restored, offering tastefully styled accommodation yet retaining some superb features. The highlight of this super property is the wonderful kitchen/dining room with underfloor heating and a suspended mirrored light from the apex. French doors lead from here onto a patio terrace which leads to the enclosed gardens, where plentiful wildlife including deer, pheasants and many birds can be seen. Contrary to the name of the cottage, there are no ponds in the property’s own fenced grounds, however there is a large pond in the grounds of the next door property.

    Ideal for families and couples, there is a double bedroom on the ground floor with a ‘Jack ‘n’ Jill’ shower room, and three further bedrooms on the first floor, one 5ft double with TV, one double and one single with a pull-out bed suitable for children. There is a bathroom on the first floor, plus an additional toilet in the ground floor utility.

    The ever-popular New Forest is part of the National Park, and is a haven for ponies. Extensive walks, cycling and riding routes cross the heathland. There is plenty to do in the area for all ages, all year round. Nearby Brockenhurst has ‘best in county bakers’, plus cycle hire, shop/post office and pubs/restaurants.

    The popular sailing town of Lymington is only 10 minutes’ drive, with its pretty harbour, cobbled pedestrianised streets, boutiques, eateries and pubs, and ferrys to the Isle of Wight. Other places of interest include Beaulieu Motor Museum, Buckler’s Hard, Marwell Zoo, Peppa Pig World at Paultons Park, New Forest Owl and Otter Park and Southampton with its maritime history, to name but a few! Shop 2 miles, pub/restaurant ½ mile.

    Pond cottage was fine for our extended family. What we were promised on the web site was there as expected. Simon met us and gave a good briefing about the cottage and the bits and pieces and local knowledge they have gleaned (look out for cat paws- he will tell you). Jenni's directions to the cottage were far more sensible (using local knowledge) were far more sensible than the country cottage web site who simply used google style directions and land you in 1 hour traffic jam at lyndhurst (to be avoided at all costs unless you want to go to the town. Only comment would be to come onto Sandy Down and immediate right into Hurstley lane before turning left into Lower Sandy Down to go to Pond Cottage

    We've tried to think of something negative to say about this cottage but none of us could come up with anything! The only we did think of was that we would have liked a bigger bed, but it was insanely comfortable and wasn't a problem at all. We have hopefully started a yearly tradition of family holidays to the New Forest, and this was a perfect place to start. Slightly remote, peaceful and idyllic. The garden was perfect with little pathways mown out of the lawn for our little grandson to run about. We felt so at home, would love to return.

    The cottage is really perfect for a family holiday. The owners couldn't have been more helpful and the property is in superb condition and spotless. It is extremely well equipped and everything has been very well thought through. I would have no hesitation at staying here again.

    We loved our stay at Pond Cottage. Penni and Simon were very accommodating, even leaving snacks for our toddlers, and providing a stair gate, high chair, baby wipes etc. The house itself is beautiful and very cosy and welcoming - we all felt immediately at home. Our party consisted of 3 couples, each with a toddler and we found the size of the rooms perfectly suitable for a travel cot to squeeze in the corner; and the beds were very comfortable, too. The garden looked great (even if the weather meant we couldn't really enjoy it!) and the horses in the field next door were a huge hit with the smaller members of our group. We would absolutely stay here again, and hope to be back soon!

    A truly magical place in the middle of the New Forest. Pond Cottage is wonderfully comfortable, extremely well equipped and furnished to a very high standard. The beds were fantastically comfortable with luxurious bed linen. We loved the big kitchen and enjoyed long leisurely meals around the table. Set back from the road you feel you are in the middle of nowhere and it is the perfect place to unwind. Communication from the owners was prompt and helpful and we appreciated the lovely welcome pack. Fairy lights on the outside of the cottage added to its charm and we couldn’t have wished for a better place to stay for a reunion of friends.
