BURGATE FARMHOUSE is a 15th century thatched listed property in Fordingbridge, Hampshire only 5 minutes from the New Forest National Park & just 25 minutes away from the famous Peppa Pig World at Paultons Park. Two wings of the farmhouse have been converted into two charming self catering cottages: Little Thatch and Wishing Well. With a plenty of space and a games room on offer Burgate Farmhouse makes a great place for a holiday. Both cottages can be booked together to accommodate a larger group of up to 10 people. There is an extensive list of 'baby/toddler kit' which can be borrowed (free of charge). It is also possible to arrange for a food delivery to arrive before you do. Everything will be put away for you, ready for your arrival.

LITTLE THATCH - sleeps 2-4 people (1 bedroom + a sofabed in the lounge).
All the rooms are on the ground floor so is suitable for someone with limited mobility. Accommodation comprises:

A large sitting/dining room which is full of character and charm including its own Inglenook fireplace (sorry no fires though) and a large round dining table & chairs. The bedroom can either be used as either a twin room or the beds can be zipped together into a ‘queen sized’ double bed.

The bathroom is adjacent to the bedroom & has a bath with shower over & a washbasin. There is an electric wall heater & a heated towel rail. The bathroom is accessed through the bedroom.

The toilet is separate & is situated at the end of the hallway.

Patio doors lead out from the sitting room onto a lovely shady spot under the wisteria where there is a table & chairs.

The kitchen is well equipped and the back door from the kitchen leads out to a secure garden/yard area (brilliant for anyone bringing a dog) where there is a table & chairs & also a wooden picnic bench.

Little Thatch is ideally suited for a couple or a small family.

WISHING WELL - sleeps 6 people in 3 bedrooms.

The entrance from the courtyard leads into the kitchen, fully equipped. A sliding door separates the kitchen from the cosy beamed sitting/dining room (NB new 'Smart' TV has just been installed). There are 2 sofas + a stool + several bean bags which are often preferred by small children. There is a dining table with 6 chairs.

There is an extra WC downstairs just inside the entrance door. Stairs lead from the kitchen up to the 3 bedrooms, bathroom & toilet.

The large master bedroom has a double bed & single bed. (NB this bedroom is accessed through the 2nd bedroom).

The 2nd bedroom has 2 beds (1 double & 1 single). In between these 2 rooms there is a large walk-in wardrobe.

The 3rd bedroom along the corridor is smaller with a sloped ceiling and has pine bunk beds (full size with ‘proper’ mattresses).

The bathroom has a bath with shower over and a washbasin. There is a wall heater & an electric towel rail.

Wishing Well is ideally suited for family accommodation.

Please note: the extra single bed in the Master Bedroom means that there are actually beds for 7. However, space in the sitting/dining room is better suited for 6.

Outside of the entrance door, there is a patio table & chairs. On the nearby lawn, there is a wooden picnic bench.

Burgate Farmhouse also offers a Games Barn, wonderful retreat for rainy days. The Barn contains a skittle alley, pool table, table tennis table, dart board & lots of children’s toys. If you bring your mountain bikes then you are welcome to store them in the Games Barn when not in use (please bring your own bike lock).

There is an on-site laundry room (washing machine & tumble drier & an outside rotary drier).

The large garden has a ball games area (with football nets), a summerhouse (with sun loungers etc), swings and BBQ's.

There is plenty of parking immediately outside of the entrance doors.

There is free Wifi throughout the house.

Well behaved dogs are welcome at a small charge (£7 per week).

Places To Visit

Fordingbridge is in the Avon Valley between the edge of the New Forest National Park & the Dorset borders. You can get most of your general shopping needs here (supermarket, butchers, bakers, newsagents, tearooms, gift shops etc). The city of Salisbury is just a few miles away with excellent shopping, a twice weekly market & its famous Cathedral. The well known coastal resort of Bournemouth is only 17 miles to the south. There are lots of beaches (about 30 mins drive away). Southampton is only 20 miles away - lots of shopping!

Places to Eat Nearby
Very close by is the Surma Valley Indian restaurant which also does excellent takeaways. The 'Bat & Ball' pub is about half a mile north of here & is recommended. Dogs/children/muddy boots are 'welcome'. Fordingbridge town centre is less than half a mile away and has several nice pubs and tearooms. The George Inn is in a lovely location, next to the ancient bridge. It overlooks the River Avon & is a nice place for morning coffee, lunches & evening meals (dogs welcome). The Fighting Cocks Inn at Godshill (5 mins drive) is a very popular pub with good food (dogs welcome).

The New Forest
The New Forest National Park is a region of exceptional natural beauty with large open heaths, moors & leafy glades interspersed with woods & plantations, picturesque streams & brooks, peaceful old villages, ancient churches & quaint houses & pubs.

Avon Valley & Fishing
The Avon Valley Footpath is very close by. Just over the road is a lovely stretch of it which goes over a foot suspension bridge over the River Avon, through water meadows & into the New Forest (via the Fighting Cocks Inn).

This ancient cathedral city is just 20 minutes drive to the north & is lovely for a day out. There is a handy (& cheap) Park n Ride if you don't want to drive your car into the city. Market days are Tuesdays & Saturdays.

Swimming Pool

Fordingbridge Park & River

There is a lovely park & riverbank area near the ancient bridge with a children's play area, paddling pool & part of the river known locally as 'the beach' where children can paddle & play in the water.

Mountain Biking
The New Forest is a perfect place for mountain biking. You can bring your own bikes (& store them in the Games Barn when not needed). Bike hire is available nearby from Sandy Balls Holiday Village. I have bike guide books & route maps for mountain biking that you can borrow.

Moors Valley Country Park
Highly recommended & just 15 mins away (by car), this park has something for everyone from a miniature steam railway & play trail for younger children to the famous 'Go Ape' aerial trekking & zip wires high above the forest floor for older children (& dads & mums if they are brave!). There is now a junior Go Ape for younger children. There is also cycle hire available & waymarked trails around the park. There are lots of tables for your own picnics around the park and next to the lakes & also a very nice cafe on site. www.moors-valley.co.uk/
