The Coach House is one of two properties set in the grounds of Heathfield House. The building originally accommodated the coaches and horses for the main house and is full of character, with its cobbled front courtyard and arched wooden doors.

The generous sized sitting room with high ceilings, exposed beams and a woodburning stove is the ideal place for everyone to relax and unwind in after a day exploring and discovering the beauty of the area. There is also a large kitchen dining room, with high ceilings and exposed beams, which is ideal for relaxed eating and celebratory meals. It is fully equipped with granite work tops, dishwasher, two ovens, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and all utensils. The four double bedrooms accommodate 8 people. Three of the bedrooms can be arranged to sleep either two individuals or a couple and there is also a pull out bed suitable for a child.The house has three private garden areas: a lovely covered terrace bordering onto the south facing lawn with beautiful views over the estate garden, a walled garden with a garden room and a cobbled courtyard ideal for al fresco dining in the evening – all perfect places to socialize, relax and unwind.

Heathfield Estate is set within the New Forest National Park, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. With its country pubs, horse-riding, bike-riding and walking trails, its natural beauty and wildlife never fails to impress. Set within 15 acres, Heathfield House in Bransgore has a distinctly rural setting yet is within easy reach of both city and coast.

The New Forest National Park is one of the largest remaining forests in England. The forest was created by William I in about 1079 for the royal hunt. At that time they hunted the deer that still live in the forest. They are shy creatures but you might be lucky enough to spot one around Heathfield. Wild ponies and donkeys roam the open heath in the New Forest area. The ponies are one of our best-loved native breeds, it is their grazing that maintains the open character of the forest. The New Forest is famous for its ancient trees. You can see beech trees that are 400 years old, oaks that are 800 years old, and even some yew trees that are said to be 1000 years old, that were here when William I and his descendants used the forest for hunting.

For larger groups, take a look at Magnolia Cottage (HA020) sleeping four guests, which can be booked separately or together with the Coach House.
