Magnolia Cottage is the perfect location for a quiet romance à deux or simply enjoying life’s pleasures with a couple of close friends, our sought-after offering is small but perfectly formed with two bedrooms, three baths and two terraces – one to catch the sun all day and one to watch it set.

Deep in the forest, nestled in 15 acres of landscaped grounds Magnolia Cottage has a quaint charm that’s irresistibly inviting. Close to the sea with lots of charming local villages and towns, a country abode that makes the most of every season.

Magnolia Cottage is one of three uniquely enchanting properties on the Heathfield Estate. Whether you’re looking for a small family holiday, a memorable weekend or inviting lots of friends for a special celebration, Heathfield Estate has plenty to offer. Collectively or individually the three properties can host between 4 to 36 guests – view The Coach House which accommodates up to 8 guests and for the main Heathfield House, please contact us for more information.

Foodies will love the modern kitchen/diner, which is well-equipped with numerous appliances: breakfast table, oven, microwave, large fridge freezer , washer/dryer. There’s a ground floor guest toilet here too.

The comfortable luxurious living/dining room stretches from the back to the front of the house with french doors opening directly onto a covered terrace area and bordering onto a private lawned garden with lovely views of Heathfield Estate gardens.

Upstairs is well styled double bedroom with scenic views overlooking the Heathfield Estate gardens. It has its own luxury ensuite bathroom with bath and overhead shower. A second cosy bedroom has views overlooking the cobbled courtyard and countryside. It also has its own luxury ensuite washroom with shower.

All beds have very comfortable pocket sprung mattresses and are made up with luxury Egyptian cotton sheets, soft luxurious quilts and pillows. Ensuring a great nights sleep.

The zip & link beds can be configured as doubles or as two singles depending on your preferences.

Outside, Magnolia cottage has two private garden areas: a south facing covered terrace, looking onto a private lawned area with beautiful views over the estate garden. Also front garden terrace perfect for al-fresco dining and catching the evening sun.


We provide a 1 cot, 1 highchair and a stair gate (please let us know if you would like this in advance).

Best for…

Romantics, escapists, dreamers and anyone needing down time in luxury!


There are 2 small steps into the cottage and a gravel path that surrounds it. The stairs are steeper than the average here but the bannister rail is good.

So if you are organising a group with less mobile people then read our ideas (and tested excursions) here in our blog ‘Holidaying with less mobile folk? Here’s where to go, what to do!’

What makes this special...

No effort has been spared here and this small place packs a luxury punch that most don’t. We love the quiet in the morning, taking in a cup of tea on the patio whilst listening to Radio Solent and enjoying the peace of the forest in this superb location.

What we love

The coastal walking is excellent. Pictured is the trail from Milford on Sea beach.

Whilst you’re there, stop for fish and chips eaten on the beach and maybe a cheeky drink at the  “Cave”.  Alternatively, get out and visit Chewton Glen for the ultimate in luxury with spa treatments, an afternoon tea or a cookout session @theKitchen with James Martin.

Don't just take our word for it...
