  The Detail...

This charming and quaint thatched cottage in the New Forest is 275 years old and is all about the slow life. This is a little cottage full of history with creaking floorboards and cosy nooks and crannies, youre sure to fall for it straight away. Set in the gorgeous rural hamlet of Norley Wood with donkeys, ponies and cows as neighbours, this is quintessential English countryside living. Sleeping up to six in three double bedrooms, Thatched Hat Cottage is a great choice for families or getaways with friends.

The kitchen is centred around the AGA, which makes the place warm and homely. The kitchen table seats six and is the perfect spot to sit and chat with a cup of tea. The sitting room is made for cosy evenings in with big sofas to sink into and a wood burner to keep you warm in winter. In the summer months, open the doors out onto the terrace and let in some of that fresh country air.

The master bedroom is upstairs with a king-sized bed and plenty of natural light thanks to the window facing the garden and fields beyond. There is a smaller double upstairs and the final bedroom is downstairs, also facing the garden and with an ensuite bathroom. A family shower room can be found upstairs. Outside, the gorgeous, south-facing private garden is full of pretty flowers, a pond and outdoor furniture. The perfect spot for lazy summer afternoons and BBQs.

Amongst the traditional style of the furnishings, youll find tribal drums, woven baskets, bold patterns and pieces like Masai necklaces. These treasures come from the owners years in Africa where her family lived in some of the wildest parts of Botswana. These beautiful additions make the cottage truly unique.

Norley Wood is a quiet and peaceful place to be with walks through the woods and across heathland. Head to the beach and the coastal path to Lymington or work up an appetite with a two-hour walk to The Pig. Surrounded by National Park and the coast, theres no end to the outdoor activities on offer. From the 150m floating obstacle course at Lymington Salt Water Baths to picking your own fruit at Goodall to an 18 hole adventure golf course. And if you get through all of that, you could take a trip to the Isle of Wight which is just thirty minutes away on the ferry.
