Venue Description

We are delighted to be the first place in the New Forest that is able to offer accessible self catering holidays, which the whole family can enjoy. Based on the outskirts of Lymington, just 2 miles from the New Forest National Park and the coast, we are an ideal base for exploring the area. Our Self Catering Cottages are purpose built, redecorated annually and are available throughout the year, whether you are after a short break, a weeks holiday, or a fortnight in the New Forest, we try and help. All three holiday cottages - Bench Cottage, Garden Bench and Little Bench benefit from ceiling hoists. Bench cottage has a second hoist in the wet room and a changing table, so are trully accessible to all.

Little Bench, a one bedroom cottage offering self catering for 2, with a ceiling hoist over the beds. Garden Bench, a two bedroom cottage with a profiling bed in themaster bedroom and a ceiling hoist, a private garden and the ability to take well behaved pets.
