“A cosy comfortable cottage”
Reviewed March 30, 2018 for a stay in March 2018

We spent a long weekend here, four adults, a baby and dog. Plenty of room for us all and very well appointed. A cold weekend, with snow on the Saturday night, but the cottage was warm and cosy. Everything we needed. Because of the snow, we decided that our Winchester trip,on the Sunday would be on the train which was so convenient. Ate at the pub for our lunch on Saturday and had an excellent meal. Would love to come back, perhaps in the better weather, to see more of the area. A fantastic weekend and the accommodation was brilliant,

“Rufus Cottage ,Ashurst, New Forest”
Reviewed March 13, 2018 for a stay in March 2018

David has immaculately presented Rufus Cottage.
It was clean, comfortable,cosy and warm.
We all slept very well due to the high quality of the beds, pillows and duvets.
The shower provided hot water on demand and you could eadily adjust the flow.
The kitchen was very well equipped and contained all modern appliances which made our stay even more relaxing.
The conservatory was bright and airy even when the rain was torrential !

It's position near to the line and Forest Inn did not compromise it's tranquiity in any way.

The price was fair.

We would stay here again without hesitation,and thoroughly recommend this lovely cottage in the New Forest

Thank you for those positive words. It was a treat to see some of your family arrive by train and some by car. Perfect meeting point. People don't always pick up on the rail travel option.

“Lovely pet friendly cottage - perfect location”
Reviewed February 6, 2018 for a stay in February 2018

This cottage is a little gem and ideally located for a trip to The New Forest. Easy to find, next to The New Forest Inn pub and Ashurst station with easy links to local areas. Great communication and instructions from owner, with hints and tips and money saving ideas. This cottage has a small enclosed garden, (good for the dog) , parking space and is extremely quiet considering it’s next to the pub and station.
With a large well stocked kitchen, you could easily cater at home and can easily accommodate a family of four or two couples. An en suite to the master bedroom and family bathroom makes this ideal to share. A king size room and twin, with good quality bedding and furniture enhances the quality of this cottage. It’s spotlessley clean and lovely and warm. With a large conservatory and tv lounge, it’s not at all cramped. A lovely find!
The pub next door is pet friendly and has dog beds, bowls and biscuits for your furry friend and you can have dinner in the bar without worrying about leaving them in a strange house.
Lovely local walks in the forest areas nearby and a couple of minutes drive into the centre area of the forest.
A lovely weekend ... just wish we could have stayed longer. Maybe next time......
Well done David

“Excellent”
Reviewed November 10, 2017 for a stay in November 2017

This is a cosy cottage in a great location in the New Forest. It is well-equipped and the beds are comfy. it is situated next to the rail station and a dog-friendly pub. There is a local Co-Op ten minutes walk away which is open all day seven days a week. We found it really useful to top up on food, newspapers, etc. You can be in the New Forest in a few minutes without having to get in the car and we enjoyed some lovely walks. Despite being next to the train station we heard no noise from the trains.
