Property Description

Old Bridge Cottage lies on the banks of the River Avon in Hampshire at the edge of Ringwood, a beautiful old market town on the edge of the New Forest. The holiday cottage overlooks open water meadows to the rear yet is only a 2-minute walk to the centre of town with its range of shops, wonderful pubs and fine places to eat. The riverside garden has 100 feet of private river bank with fishing rights and views over the river to the nearby thatched pub, the Fish Inn. The house itself dates back several hundred years in parts but has been extended over the years. All can enjoy the large hot tub and sauna and the main garden has a lovely outdoor heated swimming pool and the Breeze house for al fresco dining. The lively coastal town of Bournemouth is 15 minutes’ drive, the ancient city of Salisbury 30 minutes’ drive and London 1-2 hours by car or coach. An ideal spot from which to explore the New Forest National Park with its varied wildlife, walks and cycle paths. Shops 200 yards.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. House was fabulously equipped and the pool and jacuzzi was great. It was close to the main road but this made the access excellent and we could not hear the noise. Sept 2012.
  2. Accommodation is spacious and the kitchen has all the equipment you would require. Jacuzzi and sauna were great. Great for group holidays. Not really a good spot to fish if you are an amateur (as we were) because of the fast flowing water. But this didn’t affect our enjoyment of the cottage. March 2012.
  3. The pool was amazingly warm and this meant we could make full use of it even though the weather was not great! Wine and chocolates on arrival was a lovely touch! Beautiful and well equipped kitchen. Brilliant laundry and drying facilities! Aug 2010.
  4. The facilities were excellent throughout. The garden was lovely and well maintained and we appreciated the pool maintenance team arriving every day. For up to 11 people, it’s lovely - above that, I would imagine it starts to get a bit cramped. Hirers should also be told that the main dinner table seats 10 max. Not a problem for us with a party of 9, but a potential problem for larger parties. The lounge furniture wasn’t particularly comfortable. However, I would like to praise the attention and help from Mrs Savage who looked in the evening we arrived - she was most helpful. I’d also like to say that in every other respect, the property was outstanding. May 2010.
  5. Pool, sauna, jacuzzi. May 2010.
