A lovely, cosy and comfortable cottage which was a perfect base for our family as we explored the forest. Nicely finished inside, it really felt like a home away from home.

This cottage was probably one of the best cottages we have stayed in, everything had been thought of from amazing bathrooms, to smart TVs in each room. It was extremely clean, beautiful gardens. Location perfect for walking into the village to the shops and pubs or straight onto the forest. Ponies also came right up to the gate. Would defiantly recRead moreommend this pretty cottage. Hide

This was our third stay so I think this says it all. As always a lovely comfortable, clean cottage. Whether we were out and about and only returning late afternoon or a few hours just enjoying the cottage and garden, we were totally satisfied.

Superb cottage in an ideal location to explore the New Forest. It is extremely rare to find a rental property of such high spec that takes a dog. Spotlessly clean, very comfortable and very well appointed. Would not hesitate to recommend and would definitely go again.
