Gather your favourite peeps- this Victorian, art-filled house is perfect for getting together in style!

It’s immaculate, indulgent & just shimmies with classic, modern smartness. Nestled on the edge of Neacroft, a tiny New Forest hamlet, and just a short drive from the beach, this really is the ideal place for a spot of VIP spoiling!

Set over 3 x floors, there’s plenty of room to roam & retreat at The Bend; with beautiful living areas, a sofa-filled balcony & a glorious garden to relax in… oh and did we mention that each of the 6 x bedrooms has their own en-suite or bathroom?!

Stretching the full length of the house; the sitting room’s open-fire & modern paintings create the perfect back-drop to your pre-dinner drinks, before the main event in the twinkly dining room. Private caterers/ chefs of the party will be particularly happy with the set up here.

For a movie, games, or just full hibernation, we suggest you head downstairs to the the cinema/TV room where an absolutely giant, sofa-cum-bed-platform awaits… we’ll dig you out when the snow melts!

Waking up to a day of countryside pursuits, why not stroll through the surrounding fields & footpaths to discover neighbouring hamlets & villages (via the pub perhaps… we recommend The Three Tuns!), or treat yourself with a day at The Chewton Glen’s serene and slick spa? Whether pampering, or pottering –  The Bend provides the perfect retreat to return home to!

For the beach lovers & wild swimmers amongst you, the sandy shores of Avon & Mudeford are just a 10 min drive away – and promise to blow the cobwebs away! A walk out to Hengistbury Head is also particularly special (and good for prams/mobility vehicles) + as an extra bonus, this area is often deserted out of peak-season.

With its countryside-glam sure to win over the grown-ups, the 1/2 acre of fenced lawn also provides a safe area for the little ones to enjoy- complete with a football goal, ping pong table & badminton net (+ plenty of seating for the spectators amongst you!) to keep all ages entertained!

Whether coming with your family or friends, we can configure the rooms to suit- so just let us know what best works for your party.

What makes this place special...

Highlights staying at this house and in the local area...

All the essential details.

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


For big birthdays, celebrations and spoiling yourself - it's hard not to have this place at the top of your list!

The art-filled sitting room extends the full width of the house, offering an open-fire & plenty of room for all to get cosy. With an adjoining wooden-decked balcony offering yet more sofas to sink into, pre-dinner drinks are the order of the stay; whilst private caterers take over the kitchen and deliver wonderful smells...

Gathering here is an absolute joy! So if the stay involves some serious feasting, the well-stocked kitchen is the perfect place to whip up a special something. Complete with a 'sparkly cupboard', that has all manner of pretty things in (there are plenty of smart dishes, trays, glassware & table paraphernalia to choose from...), the beautifully styled dining room seats 12, and you'll really enjoy dressing the table for dinner.

Whilst there is a TV in the sitting room (appearing at the touch of a button!), we highly recommend returning downstairs to the cinema / TV room, where the giant sofa beckons for late night chatter, games, a some serious box-set binging!

All of the boutique bedrooms offer a sleek & well-produced retreat, with their very own en-suite or bathroom. We love the views from the front bedrooms, and the garden access from those downstairs- but all are just as nice as each other... so there won't be too many fights!

Do remember to use the 3D Virtual Tour that we supply. It will allow you to tour the entire house and see what you're getting before you stay. Enjoy!

For alfresco feasting all-year-round, the wide terrace is home to a gas BBQ.

Level with the sitting room, the cosy sofas on the balcony sit six comfortably, providing the perfect 'lookout' to coffee-by-sunrise or cocktail-by-sunset!

GardenThe garden is large, enclosed, flat and mainly laid to lawn. There are various outside tables to enjoy the sunny and
warm weather. BBQ available (gas)

Home truths

The house is beautifully set-up, so whilst families are very welcome, please do take into consideration the art & pale furniture when looking at a stay here (we want you to be able to completely relax!!!). If you are bringing children, please do check with our team to ensure it's the right place for you.

For your safety, please do take extra care on the balcony (especially if allowing younger guests out here, who should be supervised at all times) and do not lean on the railings.

There is a gas BBQ available for use in the summer months only. There is also a gas BBQ for use all year round. Please request at the time of booking if you wish to use.

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


You can park within 20 x metres of the front door, and enter by a set of brick steps (5).

Set over three floors, the whole downstairs is on one even level - except for the fifth bedroom's bathroom, which requires a step down to access. All bedrooms are either upstairs, or downstairs - with upstairs bedrooms having the best handrail.

Please do take our virtual tour to get a real feel for the house.

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. The Jetty is also a really special spot to continue coastal living.
