Lovely 4 Bed home in Brockenhurst, England

Vine Cottage has the most idyllic location of all New Forest Cottages, set in over an acre of gardens directly adjoining the New Forest itself with direct forest access. You can walk for miles on forest paths without seeing a car or a road all day long, but ponies, deer, other walkers and cyclists.

Vine cottage, as the name suggests, was converted from the vinery to Rhinefield House, and still features the original ironwork and characterful wooden boarding in parts that were once the gardeners potting sheds. The living spaces are in the vinery part, with beautiful views across the large garden.

Children love the large garden at Vine Cottage, where there are wide open spaces for playing ball games, frisbee or flying a kite, and various smaller areas to explore. The open back garden can all be seen straight from the dining and living spaces, families can be together but each doing what they enjoy.

Walks from here are beautiful, you will not need to go out in the car first you are already there!

Brockenhurst is a delightful New Forest village,with plenty of pubs, restaurants, sandwich and coffee shops, antique shops, bakeries and two small supermarkets. Lyndhurst is similarly sized, and known as the 'capitalof the New Forest, with similar facilities.

The lounge and dining room have views across the garden. Lounge has TV/VCR/DVD, wood burning stove.

Kitchen has freestanding stainless steel kitchen units. There's a gas cooker, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine.

There are three family bedrooms at this large cottage, and a fourth small bunk bedded room, with full sized adult bunk beds. The two bedrooms with the original "bead and butt" timber boarding have great character.
