Set on the tranquil banks of the River Avon lies the historic market town of Fordingbridge, ‘northern gateway to the New Forest’. Recognised by its majestic seven-arched medieval bridge and romanticised by its colourful smugglers’ tales, this thriving community is home to an impressive tally of Toad Hall holiday cottages. Discover Fordingbridge’s fascinating past, from its ancient Roman ruins to its Elizabethan manor house, explore the myriad of woodland trails, and enjoy the friendly hospitality at the town’s charming pubs, cafes and bistros.
You’d struggle to find a more idyllic setting than the riverbank of Undercastle Cottage. This delightful oak-framed dwelling, with its thatched roof and rose-climbed walls, sleeps up to eight guests and is also one of our many dog-friendly holiday cottages. Crossroads Cottage, a beautifully presented cosy country cottage, is a great place for a family holiday, sleeping five guests. Full of charm, its inglenook fireplace, forest access and visiting New Forest ponies are sure to put a smile on your face. But the best bit? Crossroads Cottage has the luxury of its own swim spa, with a hydrotherapy seating area and massage function – bliss! With its beautiful setting and effortless charm, it’s easy to see why so many of our guests continue to praise beautiful Beck Cottage. Recently refurbished, this lovely thatched hideaway places the New Forest right at your doorstep. It sleeps up to 12 guests making it ideal for large family get-togethers and gatherings of friends, plus your waggy-tailed chum is also very welcome. The local pub and village stores are both within easy strolling distance.
