Looking chipper and sitting pretty in the countryside, our bright & cheery home is just the ticket for forest-filled days in Sway…

Behind its classic red brick façade, we love how Sway Corner is waiting to delight, with pops of colour & playful art adding a laidback vibe to the characterful New Forest cottage. There are two separate living/sitting rooms to choose from – we’d Monopoly in the living room & brandy in the sitting room for afters; Plus we also absolutely love the super-social kitchen/diner where you can natter as you nibble, or spill out into the garden for alfresco feasting.

With birdsong starting your day right, there’s an action-packed itinerary of biking, rambling and den-building all there for the taking (bring your rackets too if you fancy a match in the tennis club opposite). Just follow the ponies & donkeys to find the best spots!

Head home via Sway Village (past the well-connected train station – Brockenhurst or Bournemouth here we come) to replenish stocks in the award-winning butchers and local deli before settling in for the night & getting toasty by the log burner.

Pssst… If you have another jolly in you, few things are more pleasurable than a dusky stroll down the country lanes, and how lucky are you that there’s a fab local to pitch up in for a swifty… the stars have aligned!

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

Inside

Bursting with character, the layout here is designed with all of the family in-mind…

At the heart of this home, the kitchen/diner stole the show for us with plenty of room for the whole family to mill amongst the delicious aromas and settle in at the table amongst the light & bright space…Hurrah to chefs being part of the conversation! Adding a little 'je ne sais quoi' to the layout, the French doors here connect you to the garden seamlessly where croissants & coffee can be savoured under the sun at the drop of a hat.

Next up, you’re a little spoilt with both a living/TV room, and a sitting room to snuggle up in après supper! Both rooms are equally as ‘sinkable’ but there’s a little more of a grown-up feel in the front sitting room, with the working fireplace, if you wanted to leave the little ones watching something whilst you have a night cap?

Onwards & upwards, upstairs an oasis of calm awaits, where the green-filled scenes fill each of the three bedrooms with countryside vibes. The master with en-suite is just the spot to retreat and recharge, but the other two (including one with en-suite!) are equally as charming and gentrified.

N.B. Pre-empting forest-filled adventures… and the muddy knees that come with them… the 3.5 bathrooms & utility room means you’ll have everything at-hand to get ready for another day of fresh-air explorations.

Location, location, location...

The much-loved local watering hole, The Hare & Hounds, is just a 1/2 mile hop, skip or bike down the road from Sway Corner, where the fab children's playground makes it a #winwin for all involved! If you wander a little further, you’ll be able to stock up in Sway Village’s super sweet deli & award-winning butchers… and meet plenty of horses & wildlife on your travels!

With ample biking & walking tracks on your doorstep, you’ll always take the scenic route here. As well as just heading into the great outdoors and seeing where you’ll end up, we’d also earmark a morning wander in Wilverley Inclosure (perfect den-building territory), an afternoon browsing Lymington’s Boutiques, and an evening at The Old Mill during our stay. If the ocean is calling, Milford is only 5 miles away & boasts beautiful Solent views whilst you swim.

Being car-free is easy peasy from Sway Corner as it’s train station can take you to Brockenhurst in a jiffy… for yet more alfresco adventures & beer gardens… or further afield for theatre trips in Southampton.

Pssst- If you get lost just look out for the 200m concrete tower (AKA Peterson’s Folly) that acts as a landmark on land and sea for New Forest locals!

This is the perfect holiday cottage to enjoy a New Forest escape with your family! I love how the cottage feels homely and inviting, so you can all instantly relax. With quality time high on my holiday agenda, I love how the large kitchen-diner here means that you can all gather around to eat and chat together; and the glimpse of ponies outside is so special for the title ones!

Sway is one of the New Forest's most picture-postcard places to stay, with donkeys and ponies freely roaming around the pretty country lanes. With so many routes to walk and bike along, this is the ideal location for anyone looking to spend quality time together. The sweet village also boasts a great train station so you can swap London life for country living in just over two hours! After a busy day of forest adventures, I can't think of a more cosy way to end the day then with games in the living room!
