Reviewed January 13, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Pros:
- Excellent location near lots of good walks. Didn't need the car at all after we had arrived.
- Clean, spacious interior with comfortable mattress and decent furniture.
- Well stocked kitchen with all the utensils needed to cook up a frankly spectacular vegetarian lasagna... and a half decent butter bean stew.
- Good heating and hot water on demand.
- Provision of OS map, some DVDs, games and bubble bath liquid.
- Tina was very helpful with advice on walking routes and nearby attractions.

Cons:
- Couldn't find a wifi signal, but didn't ask Tina or read the information leaflet so there may have actually been one.
- Kitchen knives need sharpening. Luckily I brought my own.

We stayed in the cabin for 1 week and couldn't be more pleased with the accommodation and location. The owners were very welcoming and helpful, the cabin contained everything we needed, and the location was perfect for walks/bike rides. We had a fantastic week and will be recommending the property to all of our friends.

My wife and 18 month old son stayed in toms cabin and found the accommodation to be very well equipped and presented. The location is perfect in the heart of the new forest. The owners made us feel very welcome. The accommodation is quiet and tranquil but is near to lots of attractions including the holiday camp "sandy balls" where you can use their facilities (e.g. swimming pool, shop, bike hire etc although obviously they charge for this)
