This former village bakehouse is the perfect base for a relaxing break. Unwind with a dip in the hot tub, strike up the BBQ or tuck up beside the wood burner after walking in the beautiful New Forest.

Located in the bustling village of Sway, this stylish character property has enviable access to the coast and the glorious landscape of the New Forest National Park. Perfect for a family gathering or special celebration, this four-bedroom semi-detached property will appeal to groups seeking a luxurious base from which to access the attractions and activities of the area. Hop on your bikes and join the National Cycle Network from the village to explore popular destinations such as Brockenhurst, Wilverley and Bashley. Jump in the saddle for a private group horse riding lesson suitable for all ages and abilities, or for something more unusual, why not book your group into the New Forest Polo School for an introduction to this exhilarating sport? For sociable evenings, stroll to one of the four welcoming village pubs for home-cooked food and local ales.

Boasting many original features, your traditional red-brick cottage offers spacious accommodation with a high-quality design. Bathed in natural light, the inviting lounge is a wonderful place to sit and relax in one of the sumptuous sofas. Original bread ovens line the walls, harking back to the property's past. On cooler evenings, light the wood burner and unwind in front of its flickering flames. Whether rustling up a casual brunch or planning a gourmet supper, the contemporary kitchen has everything you could need. Step through to the stylish dining room, where the whole family can sit around the table and chat about the highlights of the day. After supper, remove the table-top to reveal the pool table underneath for an evening of family fun. At the end of the day, head upstairs to find three well-appointed bedrooms. Dressed in crisp linens with co-ordinating throws, the master super king-size bedroom benefits from a spacious en-suite shower room. Two further super king-size bedrooms share a Jack and Jill bathroom. A further king-size bedroom can be found on the ground floor. Head outside to the pretty enclosed garden to soak in the hot tub or light the BBQ for a convivial al fresco meal.
