“A very special, cosy and friendly retreat at the edge of the New Forest.”
Reviewed August 18, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Little Terraces is a wonderful place to come home to after a day exploring the amazing landscape and the outstanding sights around it. Small as it is, it provides everything one could wish for to feel comfortable and at home.
We enjoyed cooking in the very well equipped kitchen and then dining on the top terrace with its wonderful view.
Sue was a great host, understanding, welcoming and generous - thanks again!

Sadly the only thing we cannot guarantee is the weather! We are pleased that with everything Little Terraces and the surrounding area offers the great British summer did not spoil your holiday. Sue

“Fabulous Bolthole”
Reviewed July 20, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

I'm not sure why I bothered to pack my suitcase for this trip - the cottage has everything!
Sue the owner really has thought of everything and has provided a full range of good-quality kitchen equipment, a decent hairdryer, bits for day's out such as a picnic blanket and much more. They've even kindly provided a local discount card and car parking pass.
The cottage is small but perfectly formed - ideal for a romantic break. The terraces are lovely - you'll need to summon your inner mountain goat but it's worth the effort.
Cleanliness second to none - please come and do my house too??
If stairs are an issue for you the terraces would probably be inaccessible and the front step requires reasonable dexterity too!
Ideally located with several key attractions within a hour's drive. We visited the motor museum, Salisbury Cathedral and Kingston Lacy. There are several National Trust properties nearby.
We had a lovely meal at Lime Wood on Sue's recommendation and enjoyed a takeaway one evening too. The Wooden Spoon is a convenient walk away and very friendly for a drink - though the food wasn't as good as we'd hoped. Perhaps it was an off night as other reviewers seemed to like it!
I've already recommended the cottage to my friends and would happily visit again.
