Rhubarb Cottage is a very comfortable, pet friendly, completely modernised, three-bedroomed semi-detached Victorian holiday cottage in Lyndhurst with free wifi, situated at the heart of the New Forest. It was built in the early years of the 20th century and the owners continue to enjoy the historical 'Commoner's Rights', allowing them to graze ponies, cattle and donkeys on the open forest.
The cottage is a dog friendly holiday cottage for hire in Lyndhurst which has been awarded 4 stars by 'Visit England'. The cottage has been a New Forest holiday cottage since 2006 and almost half of our bookings come from guests who have stayed in the cottage previously.
The cottage sleeps 6 people and has gas central heating throughout, a log burner, a downstairs cloakroom and upstairs bathroom. The modernised kitchen leads out into the courtyard garden where you can enjoy the afternoon and evening sun. Blue Tits raise their young in nest boxes on the cottage wall and House Martins nest under the eaves. A particular feature of Rhubarb Cottage is the extra wide, shallow staircase which is ideal for our more mature visitors and a bonus for everyone else. All bed linen and towels are provided. Please note that Rhubarb Cottage is strictly 'No Smoking' inside the cottage, although you may smoke in the garden. Please think of our other guests!
Rhubarb Cottage has been completely refurbished to a high standard. The sitting room has a modern corner unit settee with flatscreen digital TV (Freeview) and a DVD player. There is also a selection of books and games and a PURE DAB radio with bluetooth. The kitchen features a ceramic hob, built in oven, washing machine and microwave. The fully tiled bathroom has a luxurious white suite with power shower and LED mirror. The downstairs toilet has also been replaced with a modern suite. All of the windows and doors have been replaced.
If you are bringing a baby with you, we can supply a nice travel cot, with bedding and a high chair to help you to keep things under control!
Rhubarb Cottage welcomes well behaved dogs to come on holiday with their responsible owners - the cottage is very well situated for doggy walks in the forest.
The cottage also has FREE wifi broadband access to the internet, via your own wireless enabled laptop tablet of phone, subject to suitability. Stay in touch while you're away! So feel free to watch BBC iPlayer or download a film to your laptop or iPad.
If you are a smaller party, of up to 4 people, we offer a reduced price on some weeks, to enable you to enjoy all the benefits of a larger cottage at a '4 people' price.
