A secluded, luxurious retreat located on a smallholding where you can interact with the animals. Once the loft of a Victorian stable set in the ground of a country house in a beautiful rural setting, with an outdoor heated pool to use in summer. Located in the northern tip of the New Forest National Park, close to Paultons Park and Salisbury. The added bonus of a lovely country pub 2 min walk up the road!

The space
The Retreat is a lovely sunny, self contained and very spacious (1100 sq ft) first floor converted stable loft which has been newly refurbished to a very high standard and everything within is there to provide you with the standard of quality you deserve.
The modern kitchen is new with all the facilities you need to cook and dine-in should you wish to. Tea, coffee, sugar, milk will be provide on arrival and we often offer a selection of fresh produce for sale from our smallholding.

You are welcome to visit the smallholding and share in the daily feeding of chickens, sheep and lambs or see where all the fresh produce is grown.
Alternatively you may wish to cook alfresco over the fire pit or on the barbecue whilst watching the sunset over the fields in your private garden, before retiring inside to the oak beamed living area. Relax watching TV or a DVD, challenge each other to a game of Scrabble or just spend quiet time snuggled into a luxury throw whilst reading a book – all are provided for your enjoyment. There are two single sofa z beds in this space for younger children (hidden behind curtains to make their own special den) as well as a double sofa bed for older children - so plenty of options for guests.
The bedroom has a king size bed with high quality bed linen and anti allergy duvet. Fitted wardrobes provide ample hanging and shelving space and a ceiling fan helps to ensure you are comfortable when the weather gets warmer.
The spacious shower room has a beautiful stripped wooden floor and views across the fields. There is a large walk- in shower and plenty of room for all your personal toiletries. A small selection of miniature toiletries are provided, along with high quality fluffy towels and of course loo rolls!
Downstairs, as you enter your front door, there is a boot room/utility room with plenty of coat hanging space, cupboards and sink with running hot and cold water and a washing machine. Outside, there is parking inside the gates and storage can also be provided for bicycles, if you bring these with you.
The private garden to The Retreat is well stocked with mature shrubs and beautiful flowering perennials with a lawn leading to a seating area overlooks the fields. Early in the morning you are likely to see deer roaming, rabbits, foxes, squirrels and a plethora of wild birds. In the evenings the sky is the domain of bats and owls or you may be lucky enough to see swallows swooping around.
From your garden you can take a stroll up The Avenue - a sweeping grass walkway edged with an enormous planted mixed border and ancient brick and stone wall - along the path and out through the private gate to a footpath leading to the road and further footpaths beyond. In Spring these paths provide a magnificent spectacle, covered in a carpet of Bluebells.

The heated outdoor swimming pool is available for your exclusive use
from 9am - 2pm and again 6pm-8pm during the summer months (usually April to end Sept). Swimming towels are provided and there are sun loungers by the pool as well as in your own garden. Guests use the pool at their own risk and any children should be supervised at all times.


Pets
Although we have dogs in our main house, it is with regret that we have decided not to accept dogs at The Retreat due to the close proximity of grazing sheep.

Arrival
The Retreat is available for a minimum of 2 nights (4 or 7 nights min in high season). Usual check in is after 3pm and is contact free. We hope to be there to meet you from a distance on arrival, but if this is not possible a key will be left for you. My husband and I will be around if you have any queries, or you need a good recommendation for eating out in one of the many pubs and restaurants near by!

Pricing
Prices provided here are for low season, at different times of the year price may vary. Summer is typically £150/night for 2 and includes the use of the heated pool. Additional guests from £30/night.

Other things to note
The accommodation is primarily on the first floor with stairs.

Location

Redlynch, England, United Kingdom

Set in the grounds of a large country house, The Retreat is the perfect location for relaxing in luxury, or exploring the local area – Salisbury (10 min drive), Southampton (20 min drive), Bournemouth (30 mins drive) and the famous Jurassic coast all close by. The picturesque village of Downton is next door, whilst the local pub is within a short walk. We are very handy for Peppa Pig World (10 min drive), Stonehedge, Longleat (40 mins) and as we on the northern side of The New Forest National Park - you can access this easily without the traffic problems you could encounter if you stayed further south.
