Percy's Retreat


Quietly situated along a country lane on the edge of the pretty village of Rockbourne, this is an enchanting retreat set in the garden of an ancient thatched cottage dating back to 14th century. Thoughtfully revived and refurbished, the interior is now tastefully decorated in restful Farrow and Ball colours and furnished in an uncluttered, contemporary style. The open-plan living room has a great feeling of light and space and the main bedroom boasts a luxurious super kingsize bed. Both rooms open out onto a small verandah where you can relax and enjoy an alfresco meal.

There are great walks and cycle rides on the doorstep and Rockbourne’s highly recommended thatched pub, The Rose and Thistle is a 10 minute walk away at the other end of the village; you’ll pass the entrance to Rockbourne's Roman Villa on the way. The country road leading south out of the village will bring you to the small country town of Fordingbridge on the banks of the River Avon and to the New Forest National Park boundary just 10 minutes’ drive away. To the north the historic cathedral city of Salisbury is only 12 miles while to the south, the beaches, yachting marinas and resorts (Lymington, Christchurch, Poole and Bournemouth) of the South Hampshire and Dorset coastline are about 20 to 25 miles.
