Rhubarb Cottage is owned by Karen and Rob Horlock. It is very comfortable semi-detached, dog friendly, Victorian holiday cottage with 3 bedrooms, which has been completely modernised. Built in the early years of the 20th century, the owners continue to enjoy the historical 'Commoner's Rights', allowing them to graze ponies, cattle and donkeys on the open forest - not that they do.

Approx 45% of our bookings are from guests who have visited the cottage previously.

The cottage is situated at the heart of The New Forest, in Lyndhurst and has a Visit England 4 Star rating.

It is a 30 second walk to the open New Forest (literally, a stone's throw) and a 5 minute walk to Lyndhurst town centre where you will find a wide selection of shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants. The cottage is situated on the edge of the town as you approach from the M27. Everything that you will need for a self-catering holiday is within easy walking distance - no need to argue over who drives to the pub! The New Forest Visitor Centre is situated in Lyndhurst, which is a great place to begin your exploration of the New Forest.


Rhubarb Cottage has been a New Forest holiday cottage since 2006. It sleeps 6 people and has gas central heating throughout, a multi fuel log burner, a downstairs cloakroom and upstairs bathroom. The modernised kitchen leads out into the courtyard garden where you can enjoy the afternoon and evening sun. House Martins nest under the eaves and Blue Tits raise their young in nest boxes on the cottage wall. A particular feature of Rhubarb Cottage is the extra wide, shallow staircase which is ideal for our more mature visitors and a bonus for everyone else. All bed linen and towels are provided. Please note that Rhubarb Cottage is strictly 'No Smoking' inside the cottage.   Cottage video and more details
