A very relaxing cabin. Stylish and up to date interior. Amazing views. You cannot help but relax. Loved going for walks and feeding the birds. Our little girl loved the books, the bath and watching the squirrels. The large TV amazed her as well. The host was very helpful throughout the stay. Fingers crossed we will be back soon.

We stayed at The Riverside Retreat over Christmas. On arrival we found a Christmas tree complete with lights and a bottle of mulled wine and other goodies. That set the tone for the best self-catering accommodation we have ever used (and we've used A LOT!). Great location, great welcome and very comfortable.

The cabin is in a fabulous location for local walks, water sports and bird watching. Both Beaulieu and Bucklers Hard are within easy walking distance and it is really central for days out. The owner is very friendly and the cabin is very well equipped. I would thoroughly recommend the Riverside Retreat as a great place to stay.

Cabin is in a wonderful spot in the middle of the New Forest overlooking the Beaulieu River. However, in our opinion, the cabin is not in line with a four star accommodation; needs updating, and, above all, a serious deep clean.

We take our elderly father here as he loves the location and enjoys seeing the birds, our daughter joined us this year with our granddaughter so there were 4 generations in the house and it suited all of us! We love the peace and quiet and there is easy access to some lovely walks and cycle rides. We had a small problem (fridge not working) and Jo Read morewas very prompt in sorting out and ordered new fridge immediately. Hide

We had an amazing time, so much wildlife and birds around. We did lots of walking, the property was ideally situated. We were very lucky with the weather and could sit outside for breakfast every morning surrounded by trees.

Bird watching from here is superb. So many varieties of bird visited. Go out and buy some bird food and dog back and watch.
