    Set in the delightful hamlet of Martin, which has a village shop selling fresh produce and provisions, this lovely, detached barn conversion constructed of a mixture of cob, flint and brick, includes features such as oak beams, doors and floors, and a high vaulted ceiling. The owner’s home is adjacent, and part of their garden has been sectioned off with a sitting-out area and a natural, wooden, children’s play area for visitors to enjoy. The church at Martin which can be accessed directly from the property gardens, dates from Norman times, although much of its fabric is 14th century, and the village green still has the village pump; the base of the 15th century village cross can also be seen here. The area is renowned for its excellent walking - the chalk grasslands of Martin Down, 300 yards away, are a national nature reserve and there are several bridle paths which offer superb riding as well. Princess Cottage offers an ideal holiday retreat for couples or small families wishing to explore the area. The cathedral cities of Salisbury and Winchester, Southampton, with its maritime history and ferries to the Isle of Wight, Poole and Bournemouth, with its sandy beaches, are all within easy driving distance. Visit the New Forest and its many attractions, including Beaulieu Palace, Exbury Gardens and Bucklers Hard, as well as many cycling and horse riding trails. Stabling for 4 horses is available (at cost), as well as a field behind the property, for guests wishing to bring their own mounts. Beach 15 miles. Shop 100 yards, pub and restaurant 3 miles.

    "Lovely cottage, warm and cosy and well equipped. Ideally located for the New forest, Salisbury and Dorset. Lovely hosts who were very helpful. Will definitely book again."
    Stuart ‐ 2 Dec 2019
    "Beautiful cottage in a lovely village location, perfectly placed to visit the New Forest or Salisbury. Great for a weeks stay or weekend getaway."
    Liliya ‐ 6 Nov 2019
    "The cottage was as described, but lots of things didn‘t work. We had to spend several hours upon arrival making things usable, like the freezer. The cottage is located in a tiny village with no pub or restaurant. Local coop sells a few things, but have to drive to town for everything. The owners refused to let us have a package shipped to the cottage (first day). Then they threatened to throw us out even though we paid for two weeks. It was late on Saturday night, we have a child, and we had nowhere to go. We managed to convince them to let us stay, but the rest was quite miserable, as we felt unwelcome. Electricity went out, we fixed it ourselves. Then there was no hot water. In short, for that price we expected a much better kept place with all amenities (not heating up water in a kettle to take a shower). And owners made it a terrible experience. We would not recommend it to anybody."

    "Handily placed in a very picturesque village and close to the New Forest."
    Linda ‐ 4 Jun 2019
    "Beautiful location. Well kept cottage. Excellent shower. Well equipped kitchen. Comfort mattress toppers on the beds. Lots to do around the area (within an hour drive)."
    Patricia ‐ 17 May 2019
    "Really nice people. Cosy cottage in a lovely village. All we needed was there."
    Christine ‐ 24 Apr 2019
    "Princess cottage was very comfortable, clean and in a beautiful and quiet country location which we loved. In order to reach any local amenities you have to drive but that was not an issue for us. Our hosts were very friendly and helpful and we would definitely stay again. Idyllic springs to mind."
    Felicity ‐ 9 Apr 2019
    "Great cottage, perfect for exploring local area. Well-stocked with toys too!"
    Sarah ‐ 24 Feb 2019
    "We really enjoyed our stay. There are a couple of things that would have made it even better:TV is far too small for the room - not ideal with small children too entertainTable mats - we were uncomfortable eating at the table without themTowels - these weren’t in the best condition, a bit washed out and very rough. If provided they should be of a better standardBeds were very comfortable, plenty of wardrobe space. Excellent heating and showers and kitchen equipment was ideal"

    "Lovely comfortable cottage. Well equipped. We enjoyed our 4 night break. Thank you."
    Patricia ‐ 1 Nov 2018
    "There was only one shop but we knew that anyway. Bigger shops are a few miles away. Bedroom very close to road with traffic noise early in morning - quieter later on. Good parking space. Cottage clean & comfortable. Owners helpful but could do with a doorbell!"
