Holiday Rental House
Virasol is a beautiful, secluded property situated on a quiet country lane with all the trappings of a real home. It is decorated in a mix of contemporary and traditional styles and boasts 3 reception areas, large, excellently equipped kitchen, and a great attraction is the Jacuzzi hydrotherapy spa set in a wooden vaulted gazebo accessed via a pergola walkway. There is a large brick built Portuguese style bbq and the property easily accommodates large and diverse parties. The garden is well equipped with furniture and the house is surrounded by 3 separate decked areas. The property is gated on two sides and completely secure.

It is decorated in a mix of contemporary and traditional styles and boasts 3 reception areas, large, excellently equipped kitchen, and a great attraction is the Jacuzzi hydrotherapy spa set in a wooden vaulted gazebo accessed via a pergola walkway. There is a large brick built Portuguese style bbq and the property easily accommodates large and diverse parties. The garden is well equipped with furniture and the house is surrounded by 3 separate decked areas. The property is gated on two sides and completely secure. We are a minute from one of the best pubs in the Forest - The Three Tuns - at bottom of lane, with two further excellent pubs in walking distance. A beautiful, unspoilt beach is 5 minutes drive away at Highcliffe Castle and the historic town of Christchurch is 10 minutes by car. Excellent local golf courses, cycling and walking as well as local horse-riding. Peppa Pig at Paultons Park 20 minute drive. Virasol ticks a multitude of boxes, we have hosted numerous family get-togethers, special occasion events as well as regular holiday bookings. It is a truly all year round destination. Xmas and New Year breaks are always popular as well as Autumnal breaks when the Forest is truly breathtaking and early Spring get-aways. To sum up Virasol really does have the lot, a beautiful property, secluded yet not remote with just about everything you need on the doorstep. Switch off the mobile, sit back and enjoy the peace and quiet . I am afraid we do not take bookings for hen or stag partiesMore

About the neighbourhood
Bransgore is a thriving village with local school, churches, pubs and excellent parade of village shops. We have a large, well-stocked Co-op open 7am-11pm (most unusual in rural location), fantastic butcher, hairdresser, beauty salon, fish and chip shop, newsagents and cafe. We have no street lights - by choice! Atmosphere is safe, friendly and hospitable. There is a small car-park in the village and The Crown pub is on the crossroads just past the parade of shops. We also have a large recreation ground - wooded in places, follow the stream to the local hamlet of Neacroft. In addition there is a cricket ground with the second of the village pubs nearby - The Carpenters. The Egon Ronay listed Three Tuns is a beautiful 16th century thatched pub located at the foot of Poplar Lane. Beautiful g...
