Thatched Cottage Hotel
The Thatched Cottage Hotel, dating back to 1627, is one of the New Forest’s best accommodation options. This lovely Grade II listed hotel is situated just a three-minute walk from Brockenhurst’s station; direct trains from London Waterloo take just 90 minutes, making this an ideal weekend getaway from the city. Should you prefer to drive, you’ll find free parking at the hotel. Brockenhurst can be found in the heart of the New Forest National Park, and the Thatched Cottage is within strolling distance of the village, forest and heathland. The hotel’s convenient location and easy transport links are just part of its appeal, though.
The rooms are warm and cosy, combining modern essentials with historic charm, and there’s a lovely tearoom and garden. When you’re in need of respite after exploring the New Forest’s cycling trails and hiking routes, cosy up back at the hotel for a sumptuous afternoon tea, or perhaps try a tipple or two at one of the New Forest’s only gin bars. With over 300 gins to choose from, in addition to gin tasting flights, the Thatched Cottage is a gin-lover’s dream.
The team at the Thatched Cottage ensures that everyone feels welcome, including your four-legged friends – just give them a call to book a dog-friendly room so your pooch doesn’t have to miss out.
