Snowdrop Cottage is the quintessential chocolate box cottage, even used as the inspiration for one of the range of ‘Lilliput Lane’ model cottages. Situated in a quiet cottage garden, frequented by many birds, this detached thatched holiday property is at the edge of the New Forest National Park. The area offers many beautiful walks and great cycling, and is famous for its free roaming ponies, donkeys and cattle. The small market town of Fordingbridge is close by, with its renowned stone arched bridge, plenty of shops, pubs, a café and riverside location to enjoy, as is the larger town of Ringwood, with it selection of individual shops, pubs and restaurants. Christchurch Harbour is a great area, less than 10 miles away. The coast, with beaches at Bournemouth and Poole, is within easy reach, as is the city of Salisbury with its medieval cathedral. There are many places of interest for families, including Marwell Zoological Park, the New Forest Otter and Owl Wildlife Park or a day out at Beaulieu Motor Museum. Further afield, but worth the trip, are Monkey World and the Tank Museum near Wool, and Southampton with its maritime history and West Quay shopping centre. Shop 3 miles and pub 1½ miles.
