<p>Known locally as &ldquo;the gateway to the New Forest&rdquo; is the riverside town of Fordingbridge. Named after its seven-arched medieval bridge that gracefully spans the River Avon, and its upstream ford, this once prosperous industrial town is also romanticised as a former smugglers&rsquo; hotbed - the infamous Captain Diamond, &lsquo;King of Smugglers&rsquo;, a past face who often frequented the town&rsquo;s hostelries. Walk along the tranquil riverbanks, draped with weeping willows, and past the bronze statue of artist, Augustus John (one of the town&rsquo;s most famous former residents), to discover the town&rsquo;s shops, pubs and restaurants. You might hear the distant shouts at Fordingbridge Rugby Football Club, one of Hampshire&rsquo;s most respected amateur rugby teams. Enjoy a picnic by the water and take in the gorgeous scenery before a leisurely game of boules; one of the townsfolk&rsquo;s most popular pastimes. Here, you&rsquo;ll also find various natural havens and public gardens, winding cycleways, and also Rockbourne Roman Villa; a fascinating archaeological glimpse into the area&rsquo;s past.</p> <p>The vastly spacious, 5 bedroom chalet bungalow,&nbsp;<a href="https://www.newforestcottages.co.uk/holiday-cottages/mews-hill/583" target="_blank">Mews Hill</a> (sleeps 11) offers comfortable, versatile, family and dog-friendly accommodation just one mile from Fordingbridge - perfect for family get-togethers or holidays with friends.</p> <p>Meanwhile, the 2 bedroom&nbsp;chalet,&nbsp;<a href="https://www.newforestcottages.co.uk/holiday-cottages/riverside-lodge/658" target="_blank">Riverside Lodge</a>&nbsp;(sleeps 4) offers cosy, dog-friendly accommodation in a simply stunning position on the banks of the River Avon - ideal for a couple, or two couples holidaying together.</p> https://props.toadhallcottages.co.uk/s3images/regioninfo/NFC/Fordingbridge_river_PS_copy.jpg
