The cottage is well equipped and in a great location. Upstairs is spacious and it was lovely eating out on the balcony terrace. It is easy to walk to Beaulieu or Bucklers Hard and is in a peaceful spot near the river. The cottage is only let down by the second bedroom which contains a double bed but there is not enough room to walk round from the fRead morear side. The second occupant has to climb over the first to reach the door and the second bathroom is up the spiral staircase. Hide

We really enjoyed our stay at the Riverside Retreat, perfectly situated in-between Beaulieu Village and Buckler's Hard. It was great for walking and cycling around the New Forest, whilst also being set in tranquil, picturesque surroundings, with great elevated views through the trees across the river Beaulieu. We would definitely stay here again.

Stunning! What an amazing location, so peaceful and quiet yet only a few miles from the bigger villages. And the best thing - a deer came to visit one morning. We wasted an hour just watching it graze nearby!
