Four night stay with breakfast, three evening meals. A unique venue, from the 'Benny Hill' bathroom in the elegantly preserved on suit Bedroom to the modern traditionall Dining, with food to crave for. Yet to develop the hot beverage's, quality teas and best bean coffee's need to be introduced to the rooms and dining. Overall good value for money!

We had an overnight stay with cream tea, dinner and breakfast here. It is such lovely place a hidden gem in the new forest with a sweet little garden. Our room was great, both quaint and good quality with many thoughtful touches. All 3 meals were very good with everything home made and delicious. The owners and Alex were excellent,... More

A beautiful little thatch cottage, looking very inviting. However, the meal was very disappointing. We ordered soup of the day, leek and potato. The flavour was good however portions were small and the bread alongside, positively mean. Two small slices of ciabatta. For £5.50 I would expect so much more. It was a lovely sunny Sunday lunch time and there... More

This is most disappointing to hear. What a shame that you did not allow us the opportunity to rectify the problem for you at the time, rather than write such a review. When the staff did a 'check-back' to your table you said everything was fine- I can assure you no-one would have denied you extra bread had you asked... More

Great food and service from a place that's just opened... The menu was small but delicious, you could tell they have confidence I their dishes and are passionate about using good local food. The restaurant is super cute and has had a well needed makeover since I was here last! Ideal for a romantic meal or birthday booking which I've... More

Each time I have dined here the food has been presented beautifully and it tastes just as good!! The menu is mouth watering and the service we received was professional yet friendly and very helpful. Nothing was too much trouble and the staff are so welcoming.

We have visited the Thatched Cottage for Afternoon Tea about 3 times now and so I thought it was only fair that I finally took the trouble to give a well deserved review. The staff are friendly and welcoming and the restaurant is so cosy and quaint. Last Sunday was the first time we sat indoors as in the Summer... More

This place is quaint and gorgeous, the cosy interior, the friendly caring service and the the food, although the menu is limited and the time it takes to get to the table is longer than I would like, when it arrives, it is simply the best gluten free cream tea I have had outside of my four walls...

From our arrival until departure we have been very well looked after. We enjoyed the new modern rooms to the rear of the thatched cottage: very clean, comfortable beds, lovely toiletries. Home, grown and local breakfast. Thank you for your patience!
