Set within the grounds of the owners’ home, Kingfisher Cottage is a tranquil adults’ retreat. Remote, yet easily accessible along a mile long private drive, the recently renovated semi-detached cottage is nestled within the Forest in a unique private location well over a mile from any road. Surrounded by nature, deer, ponies and cattle are daily visitors. Birdsong fills the air, fish swim in the large lily-filled lake and herons, ducks and of course kingfishers can be spotted. The bordering heathland is home to rare flowers and plants and the gardens of the main house are in comparison ornate, with Rhododendrons, Azaleas, many varieties of Daffodil and various specimen planting.

There is a choice of walks or cycle rides in every direction from the door, meandering along streams or on gravel tracks. Bolderwood Deer Sanctuary is within walking distance, where deer are fed daily, and Burley village can be reached on foot through the forest on an easy trail, with the option of a circular route along Sir Dudley’s Ride.

Burley is a traditional New Forest village, with a local store, gift shops, tea rooms, pubs and even a cider farm. Bikes can also be hired from the village at Forest Leisure Cycling. The market town of Ringwood is less than a 10 minute drive with many shops, pubs and a weekly Wednesday market, as well as a farmers’ market on the last Saturday of each month. Further afield, the coast is within half an hour by car.
