Pretty Pilley village is home to some gorgeous holiday cottages surrounded by tracks and trails through open forest and wooded copses.
Aptly named Forest Cottage (sleeps 5) is a 300-year-old chocolate box thatched cottage with direct forest access. It’s brimming with character with an inglenook fireplace, exposed wooden beams and pretty garden, and is only a short walk from Pilley’s outstanding village pub, The Fleur De Lys. For large families and groups of friends, the luxuriously spacious Old Farm Cottage sleeps up to eight guests and is dog-friendly. This charming property, all on one level, is one of the few properties in the New Forest to have its own private outdoor swimming pool. Small but perfectly formed, The Lodge is a one bedroom character cottage offering a cosy bolthole for a romantic getaway.
