“A little gem in Milford on Sea”
Reviewed March 1, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Perfectly located for coastal walks direct from the front door of this well appointed cottage,or even the New Forest. Stuart Pond on the doorstep and keyhaven marshes a lovely walk nearby to for the bird watcher. Located close to all amenities and some wonderful fine food restaurants and pubs. Even being in the centre of Milford on Sea it was quite and relaxing in the evening too. The owners clearly are proud of the cottage and this is evidenced by its presentation. I stayed for two nights but wished I could stay longer. Will we return, yes without doubt. There is so much to see and do in the near vicinity and a few weekend visits if not weeks breaks will be required to seee them all. Thank you for a wonderful break

“Fab little cottage”
Reviewed February 14, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

This is a fab, quirky little cottage where dogs are allowed (always a bonus as it is quite hard to find dog friendly accommodation in this country!!) :) The kitchen is well equipped, the bath towels are nice and soft and fluffy, wifi signal is reasonable, board games and a selection of books/DVDs are provided. The beach is a short walk from the cottage, numerous dog friendly cafes and pubs on the doorstep if you don't feel like cooking. New Forest is a short drive away, plenty of information leaflets/maps/etc are provided making local navigation very simple. Will be booking to come again in the summer as the weather wasn't great for this particular visit and would like to make use of the enclosed patio area :)

We are so pleased that you plan to come back Carolyne, we hope the local wifi will improve in time as there are various groups campaigning for other providers to come into the area.

“lovely cottage, great location, immaculately clean, seaside decor”
Reviewed January 2, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

Spent 3 nights away over new year with my partner and our dogs. A delightful cottage, very clean and really nicely decorated with a seaside theme. Very well equipped and comfortable. A walk across local nature reserve to the beach, carried on walking to Hurst Castle. Had days out at nearby Bournemouth and Lymington. Good amenities in village, went to local pub, Indian restaurant and co-op.
Would highly recommend!!

“Christmas bolthole”
Reviewed December 27, 2016 for a stay in December 2016

Stayed here to be close to local relatives for Christmas. Plover Cottage is small, but perfectly comfortable for 3 adults using it as a base. The location is in easy walking distance of local amenities and beach (for festive strolling!) and a parking space is reserved for you.
The cottage itself is tastefully decorated and well equipped, plus a few small seasonal touches were added for our stay.
As regular visitors to Milford, I'm sure one (or any combination) of us will be booking again.
Lovey little home from home

“Lovely little cottage”
Reviewed December 15, 2016 for a stay in December 2016

We had a great stay at Plover Cottage. The cottage was more than adequately equipped for our long weekend and would be fine for a longer stay too. Good quality kitchenware, towels and bedding, and the cottage is of a good standard throughout.
There are plenty of places to eat and drink in Milford, and lots to do in the area too.

Nothing to add to all the other glowing reviews!
All amenities, very well kept, very high standard all around - not least the level of cleanliness. Very convenient location, very helpful with the private parking and all in all thoroughly recommendable.
