Amble Back (sleeps 2 or 4) - a cottage on the edge of the New Forest
Amble Back is our lovely second holiday cottage. It dates back to 1880, a red brick character cottage on the edge of a small pretty town. You will find a cosy home where the contemporary furnishings offer modern convenience within a period character cottage. Free unlimited wifi is included. Use one or two bedrooms, we price accordingly.
The cosy lounge is perfect for relaxing. There is a flat screen freeview TV, DVD player and a bluetooth speaker for your music. Chill out on our squashy comfy sofa or, if you prefer, the fun rocking chair. After dinner why not read one of the books you will find on the shelves, including lots of guides and information about the area.
The fully-equipped handmade kitchen includes a cooker, smeg dishwasher, fridge freezer and microwave. There is beautiful Orla Kiely crockery in the cupboards with lots of cookware should you choose to eat in. A table for four is in the kitchen and you will find tea, coffee, and other larder items provided free for your use. If you prefer to eat out there is a choice of pubs and cafes all within easy walking distance. Alternatively, you can drive a short distance to the delightful New Forest pubs or the numerous restaurants, cafes and pubs in Ringwood or Salisbury.
Sleep and bathe
On the first floor is the spacious family bathroom with a shower and bath. Furnished as a seaside retreat, luxury towels are included in your stay. The spacious double bedroom has a comfortable kingsize bed with feather duvet and pillows (synthetic if preferred), fresh cotton linen compliments the bright room. There are 2 wardrobes and ample shelf space for your clothes. A hair dryer will be found on the shelves. Ascend to the second floor to find the fun attic room with 2 comfy single beds that can make a large double if required. The room is a delight for children and adults alike. The rooflight looks out over the garden and the beautiful ash tree. If only need one bedroom tell us as we may be able to price accordingly.
The kitchen opens into a porch area, ideal for coats and boots. This leads onto the patio and a lawn for relaxing or playing. There is a table for those meals outside cooked on the BBQ with tools provided. Afterwards relax on the comfy loungers. A mature ash tree provides welcome dappled shade over some of the garden in the summer. The garden is fenced.
Amble Back is on a side street on the edge of Fordingbridge. You can pull up outside to unload. There is on street parking just 10 metres away. We also provide a parking permit for the car park 5 minutes walk away. This is valid across all New Forest car parks, making a great saving on parking charges for the whole of your holiday.
We welcome children of all ages and one well behaved dog. We are sorry but Amble Back is not suitable for those with mobility difficulties. The stairs to the attic room are steep and narrow. Smoking is not permitted anywhere at the cottage. The fire place is non working.
