Perfect cottage for a small family and a great location to explore the New Forest. Kids (1 and 5) loved the place and the surrounding fields. Adults loved the log burner and the local pub!

Lovely place, well positioned for walking, with miles of well maintained bridle and footpaths. The local town has a good sized branded supermarket, but I would recommend the independent butcher and bread shop, in particular. The cottage is tasteful decorated and well equipped throughout.

Percy's Retreat is a great place for peace and quiet. Rockbourne is a pretty village with a really nice pub. There are lovely walks straight out of the front door. Being right on the doorstep of the New Forest there are excellent tracks and small roads for cycling. Would highly recommend it.

Nice small cottage. Walks direct from the door are amazing. Sadly, although dog friendly, the garden is not enclosed.
