Lovely extended 17th Century cottage. Walking distance to the sea. A number of local pubs in the vicinity for lunch and evening meals. Relaxing atmosphere. Plenty of local walks in the forest as well.

About the neighbourhood
We are in an area of outstanding natural beauty within the New Forest. You can walk to the sea in 35 minutes, the closest pub 15 minutes. You can access the Wightlink ferry to the Isle of Wight in just a couple of miles, Beaulieu Motor Museum is 3 miles, Exbury Gardens or if you fancy shopping in Southampton or Bournemouth both are within an hours drive.
How to get there
From the Lymington/Beaulieu Road turn towards Norleywood, follow lane down a dip and up into 30 mph signs. You will see a red phone box on your left - ignore the right hand turn called Brook Hill and carry on, the road narrows and take the next right hand fork. Keepings is the fourth cottage on the right. Go past 5 bar gates to find your parking area at the end
