The tiny rural hamlet of Sowley, close to the sparkling Solent coast, makes an ideal base for a New Forest holiday. The main focal point of this wonderful area is the mighty pond of the same name. Sowley Pond is a popular spot for walkers to pause at the far-reaching vistas, and picnickers to fling down their gingham table clothes as dragonflies zip-zap through the rays of summer sun.
Sowley Gate House (sleeps 10) is a stunning, spacious holiday cottage with its own private foreshore, fabulous views across The Solent to the Isle of Wight, and surrounded by open forest. After you’ve stayed here, you’ll know why it receives so many rave reviews!
