The Chalet

Nestling amongst the aromatic pine trees within Avon Heath Country Park, close to the New Forest, is this delightful detached former ranger's cottage. Furnished and equipped to a very high standard, including a woodburner in the cosy sitting room, a ground floor twin room and two further comfortable bedrooms upstairs, this Ringwood cottage benefits from a large enclosed garden, with forest views from the bedrooms, a great viewing platform for deer watching! This Ringwood cottage has direct access to large areas of heathland and swathes of purple heather, an attractive well-managed habitat for many rare species of animal and plant life, which are criss-crossed by over 2 miles of designated walking and cycle trails. Visitors to this Ringwood cottage are welcome to participate in the calendar of organised events and use the numerous park facilities, including a children's play area and visitor centre with cafe. Should you tire of all on offer within the park, the nearby excellent road links take you to all the attractions of Dorset, the beautiful New Forest, and the beaches of Bournemouth and Poole. A comfortable Ringwood cottage in a great location.
