Nestled under the tall trees of a leafy New Forest village, our spacious Scandi sanctuary invites you all to slow down in style…

Cocooned amongst a backdrop of luscious green planting, Ridge Cottage is like an exclusive wellbeing retreat- where dreamy aesthetics & luxury touches promise quality time & spoiling in equal measures! From its wrap-around grounds, to its luxe open-plan interiors, everyone will find their happy place here… but will you start your stay with bubbles in the hot tub, banter in the games room, or a book-athon by the fire?

With super-chic styling throughout, there are ample areas to natter or nap (a hygge dream), but before lighting the fire & hunkering down, do spill out of the bifolds where your very own ‘great outdoors’ awaits. Complete with a gym, jacuzzi, and TV/table tennis room annexe – you’ll have no ‘need’ to leave this country retreat.

Pssst. if you do peel yourself away, you’ll find fab forest walks & hearty pub lunches on your doorstep + seaside jaunts a short drive away… you really are spoilt for choice!

Here's your full run down of this place, inside and out...

Inside

Light, bright, and frankly just beautiful... the attention to detail & styling at Ridge Cottage is second-to-none.

With an open-plan layout throughout the ground floor, the owner's designer eye for detailing means that natural zones have created plenty of spaces to eat, drink and be merry- with the cosiest of corners to curl-up into for afters. Amongst the green-filled bay windows and bi-folds, you'll find it desperately hard to choose from the sinkable sofas, sheepskin-draped chaises and sun-soaked 'window' seats on offer... we recommend lighting the candles and seeing where the conversation takes you!

Originally built in the 1900's, the cottage has evolved over the years, and the blend of old and new design details adds to the harmony you feel here. Natural textures & sleek finishing touches make this an instagrammable delight... literally every corner is a photographer's dream! With a signature Scandi style throughout, there is a strong sense of warmth and comfort here, inviting you to really sink back and make yourself at home. We love that you can open up the doors and spill out onto the patio for your morning coffee- the blend of indoor-outdoor living here is seamless, and can be savoured in all seasons.

Upstairs, each of the four bedrooms offer their own aesthetic haven. With a Jack & Jill (shower room & loo) from the master, there's also a bubbly tub waiting (jetted whirlpool bath) in the family bathroom- so no one will miss out.

Outside

From the second you enter your private & gated driveway, you will know you have chosen a very special stay...

Amongst a backdrop of ancient trees & evergreens, do forage further as this gorgeous garden promises a playground for all ages to enjoy!!!

With the sleek patio providing just the spot to enjoy a BBQ, sundowner or stargazing session, your conscious may wrestle as you decide whether to hit the gym (complete with treadmill, cross trainer & weights/ training area), slide into the hot tub, or get competitive in the annexe/ games room first... this really is the garden of paradise!

After a day of roaming free, little ones will delight in s'mores by the fire pit - al fresco perfection!

There's plenty of room for 3-4 cars to park here, (with a Rolec Wallpod charger for compatible cars), but please do read our Home Truths for a few more 'must-read' bits on health & safety.

ParkingThe gated driveway has room for 3-4 cars with a Rolec Wallpod charger available to use.

EV Charging - You are welcome to enjoy a complimentary charge during your stay to help you enjoy exploring the lovely New Forest!

Home truths

Ridge Cottage is located just off of a 'main' country road so you may hear some road noise. When entering at night, there is a gate light, but please be aware that (as a true countryside gem!), there are no main street lights.

There is a pull out bed in the lounge which can be moved to any room, but is only suitable for a younger guest. Please speak to our team if you have 9 on your guest list.

Guests are solely responsible for safety when using the gym and the hot tub - please also be aware that the patio tiles get slippery when wet.

Please take extra care on the balcony & do not lean on the railings (we do not recommend allowing kids on the bedroom balcony).

Please note that there will be 1 or 2 cars left in the driveway during your stay.

There is an extra charge for logs and kindling to burn on the fire (October- March) but feel free to BYO!

As we change the hot tub water for every booking, if you arrive on a changeover day, it may take till later on your arrival day until the optimum temperature is reached... trust us though, it'll be well worth the wait!

Accessibility

Originally built in 1913, the cottage has been renovated over the years, so has a 'quirky' layout (please refer to the virtual tour to explore some more) with some extra steps that lead to the bedrooms and bathrooms - all bedrooms are located upstairs.

Booking Information

Included in your booking cost are: all bedding and linen, towels for the house, kitchen essentials, any baby kit you've requested and cleaning the house after you leave. We also supply some treats to get you going for tea when you arrive. Enjoy!

Location, location, location...

Leafy, forest loveliness - Bransgore is one of the New Forest's most picturesque places to explore - and you can stay right in the heart of it!

With some cracking countryside walks on your doorstep (Dur Hill Inclosure & Homsley are great), you can also reward yourself with a pub lunch for afters - The Three Tuns is your local + the New Queen (2 mins drive further toward Avon/Ringwood) does good food with lovely views across the river & wetlands...

For a day by the sea, you're only a 10 minute or so drive away, and Avon + Hengistbury are firm favourites with our team for a wander by the beach huts, or a sandy sundowner.

We enjoyed Ridge Cottage as a break for Easter while working nearby. We enjoyed the most impressive garden, the hot tub and harmonious surroundings. Thank you for the warm welcome.

Micheal, Ireal April 2024

Thank you for such a lovely stay. We have enjoyed the freedom of the house and the garden immensely. Perfect place for a family with teenagers to visit. The garden is beautiful and so relaxing, similarly the house was so comfortable. We enjoyed visits and walks along Highcliffe to Avon beaches and dinner and the Noisy Lobster. We loved The Oaks at Highcliffe - wonderful food and service. The weather was exceptionally kind, apart from one day which we still managed to fill happily. Thank you for a wonderful holiday, we would love to come back.

Catherine and family August 2023

Tack Ina & family for letting us stay in your Hygge house - truly a home away from home. Berst wishes from fellow scandi. We visited Beaulieu - perfect for our boys under 5 and parents the Monorail was a hit. We recommend the Farmers Market and Grove Farm.

Christina and family January 2023

Our stay was beautiful. We booked Ridge Cottage for Christmas after we lost our Mum in October. The thought of Christmas in our family home was too hard so we escaped to the New Forest. The home is beautiful, we used the hot tub & games room everyday, cooked a delicious Christmas dinner and discovered some lovely walks. Despite Christmas being incredibly hard it was also very special to be here. We made some wonderful memories and Ridge Cottage was the perfect setting for them. We will remember them for a lifetime. Thank you. A beautiful home, warm and super stylish. Perfect for our family Christmas and so close to great walks, pubs, the coast... Loved it.

We wanted to say what a fantastic time we had at Ridge cottage. The house is immaculately decorated and also homely. We had everything we needed to create a wonderful week’s holiday for our family. We would love to come back again. It was super.

Emma and family October 2022

The house is more amazing than the photos show. A great place to stay , chic, clean bright comfortable. We used the hot tub and played ping pong and played lots of the games . A fun house even in bad weather. Warm and cosy too.

A very stylish house with stunning gardens, fantastic spaces to entertain and a great location in the New Forest. We had everything we needed to celebrate my dad's 70th birthday, including a bbq and firepit. Short walk to a lovely pubs- The Crown Inn/ Three Tuns.
