Tucked amongst Burley’s bustling village, and nestled at the foot of a forest path , our super-stylish & dog-friendly bolthole provides just the sweet spot for a couples’ countryside retreat…

Once home to Burley’s old grain store, The Nook has been lovingly restored into the 21st Century and you’ll now find bags of top-notch interior design & creature comforts awaiting under the eaves. Whilst the peaceful Farrow & Ball palette, luxe linens & playful art throughout invite you to make yourself at home inside (it is seriously gorgeous!), the courtyard garden also beckons as a sun trap & cat nap paradise… decisions, decisions. Lucky you though, as wherever you choose to curl up, the French doors blend inside & outside to perfection so you’ll have the best of both worlds anyway.

With Burley’s buzzy village & its woodland wanders competing for your attention, we’d start with a mooch around to grab a coffee & supplies (top tip… the cafe just opposite packs a mean takeaway picnic #spoiltmuch), before answering the call of the wild in the open forest that surrounds. N.b If you don’t fancy walking, you can hire a bike or even hitch a wagon ride!

Come back home to while away the afternoon with alfresco nibbles & natter before settling in by the log burner to chat about tomorrow’s adventures…  after a nightcap in one of the pubs perhaps?! Our ‘Hansel & Gretel’ cottage is at-the-ready to settle you into life as a New Forest local.

All the essential details.

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


Light, airy, and in a dreamy location… Our perfectly formed countryside bolthole has left no stone unturned in its quest for holiday cottage heaven. From the herringbone floor, to the vaulted ceiling, you can expect high end finishes & super sleek styling in every direction.

You will definitely feel smug you’ve found this place... and we can’t think of a snugger spot than the living room area to start the tour. Light & airy by-day (the French doors effortlessly connect you to your countryside location), the sinkable sofa & flickering log burner beckons come-nightfall. No matter when you succumb & settle in, we love the Scandi styling with its mix of pale wood & plump soft furnishings amongst the fun finishing touches.

Like the gorgeous bathroom here, the kitchen boasts beautiful blue hues & high spec finishing touches (+ those gorgeous tiles!) and you’ll find everything at-hand to rustle up something delicious before you settle in to natter & nibble around the table.

When you’re finally ready to hit the hay, your bedroom sanctuary provides a little safe haven to sink into, with its painted walls & plush headboard… close the shutters and hunker down before enjoying another day in the life of a Burley local!

Given your incredibly sought-after spot in Burley village, you'll be pleasantly surprised by the tranquillity & privacy that awaits as you head through the gate to explore The Nook's sun-drenched courtyard garden…

With a canopy of tall trees to gaze into, we’d definitely take our morning coffee out here… but will you listen to birdsong or lose yourself in a good book on the sofa as you wake up amongst nature?

After a busy day out, pop over the road to pick up the freshest local fayre and head back to BBQ something mouth-watering. With French doors connecting to the living area, the nibbles & ice-cold drinks are sure to flow freely!

We love how the small grassy section adds a gentle touch to the patio out here, and your pooches will be sure to find a little spot to cat nap in the shade. With an allocated parking space, an electric charger, and secure storage for bikes, The Nook’s thoughtful owners have thought of everything to make your countryside pursuit plain sailing.

Location, location, location...

With the forest behind & the village in front, you couldn’t choose a better Burley bolthole to call home! In the village centre itself (mere steps from your front door) you’ll find a smorgasbord of places to eat, drink & be merry. We’d go to Noohn for breakkie & head to a beer garden for lunch (take your pick from the two just across the road), but the two local stores are equally as fab to stock up & rustle up something yummy back at The Nook.

For days out, cyclists will love to get off the beaten track (the bike hire here are super helpful + our guests enjoy discount too), but the circular walk around the edge of the village is just as lovely. Golfers can also amble up to the local golf club and join in for the day + Burley Cider Farm & Burley Wagon Rides are also a must if you have time.

For a jaunt a little further afield you'll find Avon Beach's sparkly shores a 15 min drive away.

Thank you for a beautiful stay! The Nook is a perfect home away from home! You have thought of everything. Thank you also for the very kind welcome gifts, we are so happy we could be your first visitors and we will be telling everyone about this gem in The New Forest! x

This bolthole is a complete treat, and you will be absolutely torn as to whether you should stay in and lounge amongst your gorgeous home, or to head out & about in the great outdoors! The Nook is perfectly located with the village in front and the forest behind - both are mere seconds from your door and have so much on offer. The circular walk is a great way to combine a meander in Burley village with a scenic wander, but make sure you stop off at one of the pubs before snuggling back at home as you'll get a lovely feel for life as a New Forest local.

The styling at The Nook blew me away, and is the perfect example of how a cosy space can also feel light & airy. The muted colours and attention to styling detail make every room feel like its oozing with laidback luxe and effortless cool. My favourite spot was in the living room where the French doors opened to let the birdsong flow in.
