In a forest and by the water,there can't be many places with this kind of unique quality. Although you feel remote from the ever day,there is plenty of life to be had a short walk,cycle or drive away. The New forest is bursting with things to do.

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.
