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, you’re 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, you’ll find tribal drums, woven baskets, bold patterns and pieces like Masai necklaces. These treasures come from the owner’s 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, there’s 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.

Detailed pricing info

Please expect our short stays to be 60%+ of our week prices. We are not a hotel and it takes a huge amount of work, especially with COVID around, to make the house clean and right for guests. Kids in travel cots stay free.

The prices above give a guide only. In peak season the price can be higher than the 'to' price shown here. We use a dynamic pricing structure which means prices can fluctuate slightly on a daily basis. Pricing depends on demand for this house and across the area. We cannot guarantee the prices quoted today will be the same in the future.

Min 2 nights in off peak and low season and 3 nights plus in peak season, tho, in summer holidays min 7 nights please.
