New Forest Holiday Properties - Forest Edge Pilley

Forest Edge

Forest Edge does space really well. This village home is fresh and airy and has lots of generously sized rooms where friends and family can get together to eat, relax and play. Gardens stretch to two-thirds of an acre with views across paddocks and woodland, while the house overlooks a picturesque green. There is a paved patio area that is being added, with lovely lighting, plus new furniture in May 2021.

It is perfect for exploring the area. Come here for relaxation, family adventures and slice of life in the slow lane. Our favourite wild beach and Lymington town are all close – about 5 minutes drive for both.

The immediate surrounds of the heathery moor and forest are beautiful. The views are dotted with ponies in every direction. Especially in the centre of the village. Apart from dog walkers, it’s mostly the ponies you’ll meet on your travels. This area is a favourite haunt of the local New Forest breed and you’ll also meet donkeys, cows, (and possibly the odd pig in Autumn) roaming through the village. All call this area home, and will graze right up to the front gate.

The beach at Tanners Lane, wild and totally unspoilt, is 3 miles to the south. The coastal path here is in good condition and the views to the Isle of Wight are superb.  Lymington is also 3 miles. It is charming, full of bustle and life. Foodies have plenty to look forward to here too.

All-in-all it’s a lovely holiday house, well presented and set up for families, in a great spot. Get ready for British village life at its best.

The location...

One of the quirkiest villages in the forest, principally because of the amazing village shop (they play records outside on warm days), the cattle, donkeys and ponies who live in the 'high street' and the pub (which is meant to be haunted). 10/10 all round.

Lymington is often in The Times ‘Top 10 places to live in the UK’.  Obviously we are totally biased and agree. It is marvellous. The quality of life here is very good. The town is surrounded by National Park to the north, coastal otherwise. There is a good mix of industry (boats) and retail. Less obvious is the connection to the rural workings of the National Park itself.
