Description

Riverside House is a fabulous, partly grade 2 listed, terraced property located in the heart of Fordingbridge, cradling the northern gateway to the New Forest National Park. Positioned right on the water with the garden backing onto the River Avon, find your perfect escape here with your loved ones in a beautiful region of Hampshire. With views from many rooms enjoying the pretty scenery, you can spend a well-earned holiday together. Gather around the large table in the dining room and enjoy a home-cooked feast, which can be cooked up in the well-appointed kitchen next door. Make the most of the sitting room during your relaxation time and use the conservatory space for some chilled time with a good book. Just outside on the patio and round to the left is a separate, spacious games room with TV, ideal for keeping the children occupied for a couple of hours. The ground floor is complete with a bedroom offering zip/link beds suitable for families travelling together and wanting flexible sleeping arrangements; it has ample storage space, bedside tables and overlooks the bustling street. Upstairs, you have two king-size double bedrooms and a twin, each well-presented and boasting charming views of the river, while the landing offers a quiet reading space with a chair and bookshelf. The spacious bathroom is ideal for coming in from one of your adventures and indulging with a hot soak in the roll top bath tub or freshening up under the rainfall shower head in the separate shower cubicle. Enjoy the wonders of the magical garden to the rear, with multi-levels, flourishing shrubs home to a plethora of wildlife and a green lawn leading down to the waters edge. Find peace and tranquility in the enclosed patio to the side of the property, accessed from the conservatory, with a gentle pond accompanying you on a warm summer's day. Later, discover all the amenities this delightful town has to offer straight from the door, a plethora of shops, restaurants and pubs to choose from. There is something for everyone in this fine region, with family walks, cycle hire close by, Paultons Park Home of Peppa Pig World for the kids and the internationally-renowned National Motor Museum at Beaulieu. Exbury Gardens are also worth a visit on the outskirts of Southampton, while the New Forest Heritage Centre in Lyndhurst boasts a fascinating museum, gift shop, reference library and exhibition gallery. Further afield, you have Bournemouth on the south coast offering Blue Flag beaches and all kinds of watersports to try out. A truly unique situation for you and your loved ones with the wildlife-rich, New Forest National Park right on the doorstep.
Fordingbridge is a traditional Hampshire town on the banks of the River Avon, and offers a good mix of shops, pubs and restaurants, a small museum of local history and a display of original work by the artist Augustus John, who lived here for many years. The medieval Great Bridge, with seven graceful arches, is a major feature of the town. The immediate area is a wonderful place for visitors, with its beautiful scenery, nature havens, cycleways and welcoming people. Fordingbridge is conveniently situated for the magnificent cathedral city of Salisbury to the north, and the super seaside resort of Bournemouth to the south. The stunning New Forest National Park is only 1.5 miles from the town, where you can explore thousands of acres of moor, heath and woodland frequented by wild ponies, and dotted with quaint villages and country pubs. Within a short drive is the magnificent Elizabethan manor house at Breamore, as well as the New Forest Water Park, and a trip to Beaulieu, home of the National Motor Museum is not to be missed. This is a great location for exploring this picturesque and interesting area.

‘We had a delightful stay at Riverside House. Upon arrival we were met by John and his wife, who showed us round. The house is nice and spacious, it had everything we needed. There were seven of us in total and it never felt cramped. The children particularly liked the games room. From the terrace you can relax and enjoy views of the garden and River Avon. The house is situated close to shops, a nice park and an easy drive to the New Forest. I would definitely recommend a stay here.’
