Situated in a quiet area of the New Forest National Park the property owners obtained planning permission to extend the original cob and thatched cottage. The project saw original features including oak beams and an inglenook fireplace restored alongside more modern additions. This successful architectural blend of old and new has been enhanced with simple relaxed furniture and soft furnishings that mix textures with a neutral palette to create an update on traditional country style. Set in beautifully landscaped gardens by Karen Rogers, Ivy Roost is available for holiday rentals.
