Hidden amongst the trees, this lovely home stay is the ultimate romantic escape away from it all. With underfloor heating throughout, floor-to-ceiling bi-fold windows, a bath tub for two, fabulous Dru fire and gorgeous gardens with a stream, this is a perfect, bright and cosy retreat for those wanting luxury and a peaceful break. Surrounded by the beauty of the New Forest, this spot is ideal for long walks, plus there's bicycles on hand if you're keen to explore on two wheels. Serenity is also just one hour and forty-five minutes from London by train, and then just a seven-minute walk from the station, so perfect if you want to travel car-free.
Living and eating

The gorgeous open-plan living space has floor-to-ceiling glass bifold windows around two walls and floor-to-ceiling glass on one further wall. Overlooking lush green foliage and a babbling stream as well as three skylights making this a delightfully light, peaceful and private space. In addition, there's underfloor heating throughout - perfect for cooler months.

The sitting area lies nestled around the contemporary style Dru fire with a huge duck-egg blue sofa to cosy up on with plenty of cushions and throws to snuggle up with. In addition, there's a Smart TV for film nights with Sky Movies, Netflix and a DVD player plus a great selection of books and magazines.

The pretty grey kitchen with wooden worktop runs along the back wall of the living space with all the equipment you'll need to rustle up romantic meals and snacks including an induction hob, dishwasher and the all-important Nespresso coffee machine for lazy mornings in bed. Next to the kitchen there's a round table for intimate meals a deux, overlooking the stream.


The wonderfully romantic bedroom is just delicious in soft shades of pink, grey and white - a mini paradise to retire to at the end of the day. The sumptuous king-size bed is swathed in White Company linens, comfy bedding, sheepskin rugs, throws and cushions - a perfect spot for gazing through the skylight above at the stars whilst the remote-control blind shuts out the light for long lie-ins. There's also glass bifold windows overlooking the stream, with curtains to shut the world out when need be. In addition, there's under floor heating and a fab remote-controlled Dru fire to make things super-cosy, and an occasional chair.


The exquisite bathroom is super-luxurious with underfloor heating, huge walk in rainfall shower and a stunning freestanding bath tub for two. There are huge glass bifold doors that open on to the secluded courtyard garden to bring the outside in on warmer days and wonderfully fluffy White Company towels kept warm by the heated rail - totally blissful!

Outdoor space

We adore the private courtyard garden, complete with a hot tub, a blanket box stuffed with outdoor throws, yoga mats and yoga bricks for enthusiasts. In addition, there's a bicycle shed with two bikes if you fancy exploring the New Forest on two wheels. There's a lovely L-shaped sofa with cushions, firepit and a bistro table and chairs for alfresco dining. On the veranda you'll find chairs for sunbathing, whilst the private front garden has a swing seat and more blankets overlooking the stream - how idyllic! Finally, brollies and his n' hers Hunter wellies will be left for you too!


There is off-road, private parking in front of the house.
