The Bend Retreat

Professional photography coming soon!
The Bend Retreat is a large and luxurious Victorian-period house with plenty of style and facilities for large groups to relax. In one direction is the New Forest; in the other, glorious sandy beaches.
Whether you’re coming away as a family gathering or as a group of friends, The Bend Retreat has plenty of space for you all to relax and enjoy your time together. The property combines Victorian elegance with contemporary luxury and comfort. At the heart of the house is a spacious and sunny sitting room that runs the full depth of the house. Doors here lead straight out onto the large, private garden, where you’ll find lots of tasteful garden furniture and plenty of sun traps to enjoy a drink or meal out of doors.
You’ll find doors leading to the garden in the well-equipped kitchen and the games room too. The latter is perfect for the little ones, with a small television and DVD player, plenty of DVDs to choose from as well as games and a table tennis table. All in all there are six large bedrooms, five of which have beds that can be converted into twin beds should you wish.
The property is situated in the quiet, pretty hamlet of Neacroft, right on the edge of the New Forest. In the other direction, just three miles away you’ll find fabulous sandy beaches and coastal walks. As well as all the tourist hot spots of the New Forest, there are plenty of excellent village pubs and restaurants nearby. This holiday at a glance
