The Stable By The Woods - a perfect getaway for 2!

The Stable By The Woods
1 of 14The Stable By The Woods
Barn -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 2
Alderholt, Dorset, England
The Stable By The Woods is a self-catering holiday let which has been finished to a high standard with quality and comfort our aim.
Situated on the outskirts of Alderholt, it enjoys a rural position with views over our orchard and adjoining paddock to the countryside beyond. Whatever the weather, get away from it all and come to The Stable to relax - in summer you can sit out on the private patio area and enjoy a sundowner and - British weather permitting - even dine al fresco! In the cooler months we have a lovely wood burning stove which you can snuggle in front of.

Interaction with guests
We respect our guests' privacy. Whilst we live on site, we try to keep to ourselves when guests are staying in The Stable, although obviously you may see us in the garden, orchard or paddock at times and to/from feeding our chickens and ducks, etc. We are friendly though and happy to give advice on where to go, what to do, etc. so please feel free to ask! :)

About the neighbourhood
Ringwood Forest - Drove End car park is located a very short distance from The Stable, and is accessible by car, by bicycle or on foot. From here there are gravel paths through the beautiful woods where you can discover the beauty of the forest - right on your doorstep. If you would like advice on where to go - just ask; we also have a map available to borrow.
A short drive away is the New Forest with glades, ancient woodland, open moors, heathland and cliff top walks.
Moors Valley Country Park is also a short drive away, which offers great walks and the Go Ape! treetop challenge for the adventurous as well as mountain bike trails through the woods.
Getting around
A car is necessary to be able to get from The Stable to the various places of interest, although from Fordingbridge there is a bus route to Bournemouth and Salisbury which may be of interest. From Ringwood there is the National Express coach to London airports and there are local taxi firms (booking ahead advised) if you are planning to eat out for a special occasion and not drive.

How to get there
Airport: Bournemouth Airport: 22.0 km
Railway: Salisbury: 23.0 km
Ferry: Poole: 34.0 km
Travelling from the east: stay on the M27 until it becomes the A31. Turn off at the Ringwood roundabout and head north (right) signposted Fordingbridge for about 4 miles until you see a pub on your right called The Old Beams at Ibsley. About 500 yards after this, turn left signposted Harbridge and cross the River Avon. Carry on through Harbridge, the road winds around but continue about 1 mile where you reach a T-junction at the top of a hill. Turn right and continue towards Alderholt. Just after the Alderholt village sign and Drove End car park to Ringwood Forest, our property, The Old Barns, is the second on your right after a road junction on your left. We'll put a traffic cone outside: The Stable is in front of you. SatNav: SP6 3DD
