Carriage House Cottage is a traditional cottage tucked away on a New Forest small holding which includes the owner’s home, horses, chickens and ducks. Originally a carriage house, the dog friendly cottage has been converted to provide comfortable family accommodation for up to 6 in two bedrooms with spacious ground floor living. You can also bring your horse on holiday as there is stabling and grazing available within the owners yard which is situated a few metres from the cottage.
This rural property has direct forest access for walking, cycling, horse riding and possibly carriage driving. Picturesque Beaulieu with its famous National Motor Museum and the Michelin Star restaurant at the Montagu Arms Hotel are within four miles drive. The popular coastal town and Quay of Lymington offer an abundance of restaurants, pubs, shops and Saturday market. It is possible to catch a car ferry from Lymington to Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight for a fun day trip exploring the quaint Island. You will not be short of things to do here!

Enjoyed our stay very much, we had our dogs with us and walking them locally was a joy. The owners are not only lovely people but also very informative on the local area and local ways. Great quiet place for a holiday, will go again.
We enjoyed our stay very much and appreciated all the new furnishings
Delightful cottage tucked away in the heart of the New Forest. The owners are on site should you need any local advice and the forest is literally over the small quiet road. I took my dog and walked miles, there's also a large pond for him to cool down in, lepe Beach is a small drive away just past Exbury gardens and dog friendly. The cottage was clean and cosy and the beds extremely comfortable, the kitchen is well stocked with crockery, pots, pans and utensils should you want to cook. There is also an outside eating area, the garden is safe for dogs. Towels, tea towels, dog towels, water bowls all provided, the owners Ken and Margaret are a delightful couple and Kens pictures of animals in the forest adorn the walls and some are for sale in the reception. I would visit again. The shower attached to the bath taps was difficult for my Mum, but she too would go back. Thank You Ken and Margaret, hope to see you again. Mich
The cottage was just what we wanted - a peaceful location with plenty of walks close by for us and our dog and two good pubs for food within walking distance or a short drive. Margaret and Ken were perfect hosts - accessible and helpful when we wanted to pick their brains on the local area.
wonderful - would go again in a heartbeat.
We had a fantastic stay again at Carriage House Cottage. Margaret and Ken are very welcoming and extremely knowledgeable about the local area. The cottage is warm, cosy, comfortable and well equipped - has everything you need for a week or more's stay. Little things like the dog towels provided for soggy dogs are extremely handy! Location is fantastic, rural and peaceful yet Lymington, Beaulieu, Brokenhurst, Lyndhurst are all easily accessible from here. We will definitely be back. Thank you Margaret and Ken!
Great hosts, excellent location and a wonderful stay
Wonderful cottage, wonderful location, and wonderful hosts.
We had a great stay. Perfect balance of walking into East End and down to the beach at Tanners Lane Beach, plus trips to Lymington, Brockenhurst, Ashurst and Go Ape at Moors Valley Park. The cottage was a lovely base for our week and was warm and cosy with all the equipment we needed. Thank you to Mrs Travers who looked after us very well. Hope to return next year. Emma, Olivia and Toby
We very much enjoyed our stay. Very friendly and helpful owners - couldn't have been more welcoming. Would definitely consider returning.
We enjoyed very much our stay. Magaret and Ken are great hosts and the farm and gardens are great. Although the cottage has not many comforts and its old fashioned, it's a lovely place to spend a few days.
We were very happy in the the hospitality of the owner of the the cottage and enjoying staying there.
We all enjoyed our wonderful relaxing stay,so much so we would like to revisit at some time. We also met Margaret and Ken the (hosts)from the neighbouring cottage who were a delightful couple with much knowledge of outlying areas and also the natural knowledge and exceedingly lovely friendly people. The cottage was well equiped and the garden beautifully kept.
The owners are very welcoming, the house is set in a perfect localtion for walks & easy drives to neighbouring villages. Will be back!!
A very cosy cottage and a warm welcome from the owner. it felt like nothing would be too much trouble. We will almost definitely return (and we have only ever repeated holiday accommodation once before).
We have returned here many years now and this time we have the pleasure of bringing my horse along too! Cottage is homely and we always have a relaxed stay, and it great to be have access to extra towels if required for our dog! Stables are perfect for the stay (straw is provided, although I cannot use straw for mine as she just eats all her bed!) and a lovely field to turn out in! We look forward to returning again this year!
Couldn't ask for a more comfortable cottage and amazing facilities for our neddies!! Had a fantastic week, location perfect and Margaret and Ken the nicest hosts. See you again next year!
Lovely cottage! We hope to come back soon
The cottage was very comfortable and clean with everything thought of that we could need. We had a lovely welcome and good recommendation for a local dog friendly pub. There were lovely walks right from the front door or we were really central for visiting the attractions and towns. Wonderful time, didn't want to come home!
The cottage is well located with lots of walks from the door but also central for visiting the attractions all around. It truly is a dog friendly cottage as the enclosed garden is totally secure and the provision of dog towels was welcomed. Very comfortable and cosy with a very warm welcome. Would definitely stay again.
