The house was fab, lots to do within a half hour drive. We went for a walk around The Moot and the kids paddled in the lake. We did some cycling, had a picnic in the forest. Go Ape at Moors Valley was a huge hit even though it rained, so much to do there. This was our 3rd visit to The New Forest, well be back again.

The Wood Shed is an amazing place to stay. It is created by Abi and Ed and they have made a very natural property but with all modern amenities. The location is perfect for visiting The New Forest and the surrounding area. Abi and Ed made the stay very easy and were always on hand if we needed anything or ideas of what to do. The Wood Shed is a musRead moret if you want to get away from a busy life and just chill and relax in wonderful surroundings. Definitely will be returning in the future. Hide
