Cottage 1&2 Shepherds Spring
“Two cottages in the grounds of an 18th-centry manor house in the New Forest National Park” - AA Inspector
Our Inspector's View
In the delightful grounds of 18th-century East Mills Manor, situated between the historic medieval town of Fordingbridge and the village of Godshill, these two cottages have been tastefully converted to a high standard, offering a secluded retreat in a peaceful location. The properties lie within the National Park boundary in an area ideal for walking, cycling and horse riding. Fishing in the River Avon is also available.

About The area
Hampshire’s varied landscape of hills and heaths, downlands and forests, valleys and coast is without rival in southern England. Combine these varied landscapes and terrains with secluded and idyllic villages, complete with thatched and timber-framed cottages and Norman churches, elegant Georgian market towns, historic ports and cities, restored canals and ancient abbeys, forts and castles, and you have a county that is paradise for lovers of the great outdoors.
If you’re a walker, stride out across the high, rolling, chalk downland of the north Hampshire ‘highlands’ with far-reaching views, walk through steep, beech-clad ‘hangers’ close to the Sussex border. Or perhaps take a gentler stroll and meander along peaceful paths through unspoilt river valleys, etched by the sparkling trout streams of the Test, Itchen, Avon and Meon. Alternatively, wander across lonely salt marshes and beside fascinating coastal inlets or, perhaps, explore the beautiful medieval forest and heathland of the New Forest, the jewel in Hampshire’s crown.
