About this New Forest Bed and Breakfast

Heather Cottage is a charming New Forest Bed and Breakfast in the peaceful village of Sway, only 3 miles from Lymington and just 5 miles from the coast.  Our National Park location is a truly special area featuring the famous free roaming New Forest ponies as well as donkeys, cattle and pigs.  New Forest ponies roam right past our B&B, and from here you can walk directly into open forest or drive 15 minutes to the harbour, sea wall and beaches.  Sway village has a well stocked general store, butchers, a newsagent, hairdresser, a chemist and a doctor's surgery in addition to restaurants, hotels and pubs (the nearest pub is only 8 minutes' walk away).

Guest Rooms

We have a selection of three stylish and flexible guest rooms/ suites including:-

  • Heather Room - king-size double en-suite located at the rear of the house, a bright and cheerful room, attractively furnished with views of the garden and fields beyond.  This room includes an en-suite bathroom with a bath, shower, wc and wash basin.
  • Garden Room - king-size double/ triple en-suite, pet friendly with a double and single bed, situated at the rear of the house with views of the garden and fields.  This room has an en-suite shower with a wash basin and wc.  One well trained dog is welcome in the Garden Room. 
  • Forest Room - twin room with a private wet room located at the bottom of the stairs.  This room is to the front of the house looking towards the forest.
  • Family Suite (Forest & Garden Rooms combined) - our Forest and Garden rooms are adjacent to each other and can be booked as a large family or group suite, ideal for families with young children.  Call us direct for more information.

All rooms have free WiFi internet access, a flat-screen TV with Freeview channels, towels, dressing gowns, fresh flowers and tea/ coffee making facilities.  Rooms also have space for a travel cot. 


What better way to start the day than with a delicious breakfast served in the dining room.  Quality ingredients are locally sourced and organic where possible.  Vegetarian options are always available and if you have any special dietary requirements then please let us know in advance.

Other Facilities

We are within walking distance of the train station and we can have your luggage brought to the cottage.

Bicycles can be ordered and delivered by arrangement from The Bicycle Barn or hired from Brockenhurst rail station.  Your hosts are very willing to help you plan your days, show you maps, and advise.

You may use the house WiFi service which is free of charge.  Guests are welcome to relax in front of the log fire in the wintertime and, when the sun is shining, you can sit out in the garden or in the conservatory.

One dog is allowed to stay with guests at Heather Cottage B&B and as the boundary for the New Forest is just a few hundred feet from us there are some fantastic dog walks available. 

We regret, no smokers.


Check-in is usually between 5.00pm to 6.30pm.  Please contact us if you plan to arrive at another time.  Check-out on departure day is by 10.30am.  The Bed and Breakfast is open all year round except for Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day.
