About Alan Roberts
We bought this property in 2007 as our holiday home. We started letting it for holidays in 2008. I enjoy staying at Coral Cottage off season, now I am retired. This is helpful for our guests as by staying in the Cottage I become aware of anything that needs doing. I have friends in the area who have moved down from London, which makes my visits more enjoyable.

Why Alan Roberts chose Burton
I like being close to the sea/beaches, the New Forest and Bournemouth. One of my hobbies is sailing (on friend's yachts), so this location is handy for Poole, Lymington, Hamble and Portsmouth. I also like cycling in the New Forest, and try not to use the car once I have arrived at Coral Cottage. This area is very popular with the fast road cyclists. At the weekend there a lots of groups of cyclists enjoying the area. My bike is a hybrid mountain bike, so I get overtaken a lot!
What makes this Cottage unique
There are a number of very nice Gastro Pubs nearby for eating out. Three within walking distance. Our favourite is the Woolpack in Sopely. Good value, great food, but you do need to book for Saturday nights. The place to eat is in the conservatory overlooking a floodlit stream. There is a pavement all the way if you prefer to walk. Take a torch though. There is a car park. Opposite, but far way enough not to be a problem is the Fisherman's Haunt. The food and beer is excellent. I provide an information pack giving the telephone numbers and post codes of the best places to eat.
