Luxury Coach House & Cottage in the New Forest, Hampshire

In the heart of the New Forest, with open countryside on your doorstep and the coast a stone’s throw away, you’ll find a 200-year-old private estate extensively and lavishly renovated with period features and all the modern luxuries you’d expect. Exclusively yours to enjoy for your family holiday, celebration or corporate retreat.

Heathfield Estate is quietly situated in the New Forest National Park only a few miles from Burley, Christchurch, Lyndhurst, Brockenhurst and Lymington. It enjoys a unique position in that in one direction you can explore and discover the beauty of the New Forest, with its country pubs and many activities such as bike riding, horse riding and walking. In the other direction, you can explore and discover the sea and beaches, where you can enjoy the blue flag beaches, coastal walks, crabbing, sailing and many water sports. And just walking distance to the local heath where ponies and cows are roaming around. Nature at its finest. Every day you can see wildlife from many different types of birds, to squirrels, rabbits, foxes, hedgehogs, bees and deer on the estate. It is true bliss. 

Accomodating from 2-12 guests, stay in an individual property or book both together and bring friends and/ or family together for a special celebration. Heathfield Estate consists of the 4 bedroom Heathfield Coach House and the 2 bedroom Magnolia Cottage, all set in 14 acres of New Forest National Park. Both have 150 Mbps Wifi. Everything provided has been done with the intention of giving our guests all they may want for a luxurious, relaxing, self catering holiday. We will do whatever we can to make your stay hugely enjoyable. A complimentary welcome hamper will be awaiting you on your arrival containing milk, bread, butter, eggs, juice, and wine, along with other essential items to prepare a light snack or breakfast.

Heathfield House (the large manor house) is the private residence of the owners. Our properties are partially powered by renewable energy as we have solar panels on the Coach House which provide some of the electricity for both properties and all of the heat for Magnolia Cottage.


Nestled within 14 acres of picturesque grounds, this 200 year old estate is yours to explore. Surrounded by extensive and secluded parklands, Heathfield Estate is a timeless place for everyone to get close to nature and revive their senses. Enjoy a long walk on the grounds, relax in the Estate's Hot Tub, have an afternoon picnic in the woodland, play a game of croquet on the lawn or sip cocktails on the terrace and watch the glorious sunset.

FUN THINGS TO DO in the New Forest

With such a perfect location on the edge of the New Forest, the possibilities for activities are endless: archery, laser shooting, yoga, massage and spa treatments, cookery or cocktail-making classes, walking and cycling or even a casino or murder mystery evening. Whatever activities you’d like to do to make the most of your group/ family holiday or corporate retreat in the beautiful New Forest, we can help you organise every aspect of your stay. There are some ideas on our Local Activities list. We have put together the map on that page to detail all our local favourite farm shops, butchers, restaurants, cafes, locations, and activities so you can see visually where everything is in relation to our estate.


Heathfield Estate is a unique luxury holiday venue, with every amenity you and your guests need to unwind and reconnect, have fun, and celebrate special occasions together. Enjoy a champagne brunch on the terrace, activities on the grounds, or even host a themed event!

Coach House Guest Reviews:

"This place is so beautiful and relaxing. Loved going for walks in the New Forest and seeing all the animals roam free. Place is centrally located with many good restaurants within driving distance. We stayed in the coach house which was warm and cozy with all the amenities you need to make it feel like home. We were able to hit the coast and do touristy things like Salisbury and Winchester cathedral and Christmas markets all in one day easily. We even had a local cat, Pickles, come by and say hi!"
