A lovely family holiday home, in the heart of the New Forest. Pound House, situated in the popular village of Burley is an ideal destination for your family holiday. With its very own heated outdoor pool, available over the summer months, the property is perfect for a family gathering.
The large kitchen/diner provides excellent entertaining space with a large table seating up to 16 and the cosy lounge area is ideal for cosy nights in around the fire. Five bedrooms provide comfortable accommodation for up to ten guests in this wonderful forest location.
Just outside the back gate is access to nearby country lanes taking you along cycle tracks and walking routesleading out of Burley into the nearby open forest. A real treat for those keen to get out and about in the fresh forest air. Ponies, cattle and donkeys wander freely along the road outside of the house, therefore please remember to shut the gate behind you.
Just a short stroll into Burley village centre there are two pubs, The Queens Head and The Burley Inn both serving food and an array of quirky shops, including Shappen village stores incorporating a butchers and green grocers, to while away the time. The market town of Ringwood is a 15 minute drive from Burley with a variety of shops, pubs and restaurants to suit all tastes. The weekly market happens on a Wednesday selling general wares.
