Property Information

It would be hard to find a more peaceful and idyllic setting than the one in which Undercastle Cottage is situated. The thatched cottage is found at the bottom of a wooded track in the heart of the beautiful New Forest and stands on the banks of the famous Hampshire Avon River. There is immediate access into the woods and open heathland and keen fisherman will be delighted with more than half a mile of private fishing - there is a rowing boat available upon request during the summer months. The river is famous for large Barbel and also Chub, Pike, Trout and Roach, reputed as the most famous stretch of river for fishing in England!

From the outside you see a traditional green oak timber framed house with a thatched roof and climbing roses as you step inside, you will be awestruck by the amazing double height timber framed ceiling in the living room. All of the rooms have been carefully furnished with some delightful antique pieces of furniture. 

With two detached out houses close to the main cottage providing additional sleeping accommodation - The Fishing Lodge and The Hayloft. This is truly a unique and desirable place to spend some time getting away from it all with family and friends. Undercastle Cottage has been awarded 4 star grading and as well as a gold award for exceptional quality of accommodation by Visit England. The Sunday Times named it as one of the top 10 Best Cottages  2010 and The Times travel article 50 best cottages in Britain 2016, The Telegraph 10 best cottages with moorings 2017. Filming has been completed for the new BBC2 programme Bob and Paul Go Fishing and will be available in the spring. This cottage comes very highly rated by previous guests!
