Sitting in over five acres of private land in England's New Forest is Durns. Historically a Georgian farmyard homestead, the exterior remains true to its agrarian past, with its intricate chequered brickwork and lattice windows. It even sits behind its own croquet lawn. A truly high-end getaway, there are numerous additional features which make this a stay like no other. Whether it be the outdoor kitchen, the heated pool, the games room, or use of a Land Rover, Durns is sure to impress. The house sleeps eight guests across four double rooms, with an additional six beds in the dormitory, and a shepherd's hut that sleeps two, for a total of 16. So, whether it is a family getaway, a friend’s retreat, or a celebration, this New Forest delight is suitable for all occasions.
The interior keeps one eye firmly on the past - with period features such as timber framed and vaulted ceilings - all the while exhibiting a distinctly contemporary aesthetic throughout. The ground floor contains the kitchen, fully equipped with a double Range oven, breakfast table, and a stocked pantry which guests are welcome to use. The dining room has seating for 16, while the large and cosy sitting room has ample seating, all of which is orientated around a wood burning stove.
The first floor has three bedrooms, all of which have super king size four poster beds and opulent en suite bathrooms. The second floor houses the snug/kid's crafting area. This wonderful activity area has books, an X-Box, and crafting tables. This top floor also has a dormitory room, which sleeps up to eight, and a bathroom with a standalone roll-top bath. There's also a king sized room on the top floor for two more guests. An additional two can stay in the shepherd's hut that sits on the grounds. The hut is nicely private and comes with a king bed and en suite bathroom.
Step outside and you've got your own jacuzzi and swimming pool (heated year round at 36 degrees), as well as plenty of space to spread out and unwind in the summer sunshine. There's even an outdoor cinema that you're bound to love. Avid cooks will also love the outdoor pizza oven and outside kitchen meaning you can prepare an al fresco meal for your loved ones.
From spa treatments to mountain biking, kayaking to cocktail making classes, private chef services to personal fitness trainers, Durns offers a wide range of activities. However, should you wish to venture off-site, there is plenty to see and do in the area. The New Forest National Park is a special conservation area replete with numerous flora and fauna (including the famous New Forest ponies), walking and cycling trails, as well as several villages. The charming port town of Lymington is less than a 10-minute drive to the south while Bournemouth - one of the UK's most popular resort towns - sits 45-minutes to the west.
