One night break in the Garden Suite wasn't enough! A great contemporary pair of interconnected rooms 'bolted on' to the historic thatched house. The rooms we peaceful, well-equipped (including a kitchenette) and spacious. Hospitality could be faulted, with a great menu for breakfast. Location: perfect as a base for the Forest, central in Brockenhurst to make it walkable to station,... More

We only went in to have a coffee after a long walk. The friendly welcome was exceptional and we really liked the mixture between daytime tearoom and evening gin bar. Something was still a little bit off in terms of atmosphere but with some little tweaks this place can be really special.

We were offered the, extensive, menu & decided to order a selection of tasters - three each with different tonic waters. The gentleman who looked after us was welcoming, knowledgeable & attentive. Our experience wasn't just socially enjoyable, we also had the opportunity... More

My wife and I were recommended The Thatched Cottage by the owner of the Hotel we were staying at. Its a great little quirky place, that specialises in Gin. They also sell other drinks, but the Gin tasting plates are defiantly worth a try. Good luck to the owners on this venture

Went here with my fiancé whilst at new forest for a few days away. Only popped in for a cream tea. Amazing scones which were fresh and warm, 2 different jams and lovely clotted cream. All staff were friendly and attentive and not too bad on price. Loved it!

We decided on a New Year's Eve get away to somewhere easily accessible by train from Banbury and having stayed in Winchester the previous year thought Brockenhurst would be worth a visit. Checking Trip Adviser the Thatched Cottage looked quite interesting being 17th century with quirky original rooms. Upon our arrival greeted by David who took us and cases to... More

After a long walk it was great to relax here in this grade2 listed building. Food was a bit limited but we enjoyed different flights of Gin infused with the likes of seaweed or Strawberry. Promotes local Gin as well as a choice of 17 tonics. Great staff and a lovely setting.

We visit the New Forest whenever we can. This was the first time we had stayed here... It was truly fabulous.. The staff were very welcoming and the room was very clean and tidy. We stayed in the old part which was wonderful.. In the morning we were treated to a spectacular breakfast to start the day..
