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!

All the essential details.

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!

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.

One complimentary basket of logs will be provided for your stay (Nov - March). Feel free to bring your own for any extra.

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.

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.
