“Great house in fantastic town”
Reviewed January 22, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Great house, very well set-out and 2 minutes’ walk from the village centre. Great village and 3 excellent pubs. Great walks all around, real pleasure to stay.

Thank you for taking the time to send in your review - always greatly appreciated. Being so close to the wonderful Village of Burley with such excellent pubs/inns is so nice when you want a rest from cooking or come home tired after exploring the wonderful Forest. All the pubs/inns are so family and pet friendly too which is great for our Visitors who enjoy experiencing all the fabulous walks around us. We are so lucky to have Brackenwood so ideally situated.

“Great cottage , good size , excellent amenities , ideal location”
Reviewed June 15, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Burley is a very good central location to trip around New Forest. Local bike hire was excellent and reasonable price , with superb bike trails. Good walks. Barton on sea worth a visit and Hythe. A very good size 2 bed cottage , with great amenities and right by forest and village.

“Lovely, spacious cottage with great facilities”
Reviewed May 19, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We had a great week in this cottage. The cottage was lovely and spacious for the 4 of us (2 adults and 2 children) with great facilities. We were lucky to have sunshine every day - the location of Burley is excellent. Lovely walks from the cottage door, two nice pubs to eat out in the evening and ideal for exploring other areas of the New Forest. Wi-fi was a bonus in the cottage!

Great to hear that you had a lovely time despite the weather! The New Forest has so much to offer that even unfortunate weather doesn’t stop the enjoyment. We like our Visitors to feel at home so I’m pleased you felt Brackenwood had everything you needed for a cosy stay too.

“Brilliant house, great location. Dog Shower inspired!”
Reviewed March 24, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

Cannot fault this house. Large, all amenities, straight onto the moor across the way for the dogs. Two local pubs well worth a visit especially for Sunday Lunch at the Burley Inn.

House is spotless, check in via a key lock code which the owners send to you. Maps and further info provided in the house. Free wifi especially welcome. Great idea to put a dog shower in the outhouse which was well utilised by our muddy pooches. We took the dogs to Burnham sea which is dog friendly about 20 minutes away. Would not hesitate to use this again. Hope it isn't booked out next year when we come back!

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay and including information for other dog owners. Brackenwood has some lovely walks from right outside the gate which is ideal for dog owners and we’ve been delighted at the response we’ve had to the doggy shower facility we put in. We look forward to welcoming you again when you return next year!

Thank you for reviewing Brackenwood and I'm really pleased you enjoyed your stay so much. The Aga is lovely and helps to make the house really cosy in Winter - but worry not in the Summer it has different settings, still allowing the supply of plenty of hot water and of course great cooking - but without heating the whole house too.
