“An idyllic country setting for making special family memories”
Reviewed June 19, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

The location of Forest Corner is perfect. There is lots to see and do but you don't have to be in the car if you don't want to as much of it is within easy walking distance. On the evening of our arrival we were greeted by a herd of New Forest ponies coming to graze on the patches of open land along side us. Idyllic! Forest Corner resembles a home that the owners vacate at times allowing for rentals, rather than a place that has been kitted out especially to be a holiday rental. In the latter, for example, you wouldn't be likely to find a stash of baby's disposable nappies tucked away in a bedroom draw or the unbelievable selection of DVD's and games left available for guests to enjoy, if whiling away rainy days or odd evenings at home. With the exception of the main bedroom, we felt that the bedrooms were a little too small and cramped, but the living area downstairs was very spacious and well arranged with plenty of room for larger groups to be involved in different activities. There are reasonably comfortable and attractive outside areas to sit in as well, with wood provided should you want to barbecue. There were two bottles of wine on the kitchen counter when we arrived and two bottles of champagne in the fridge. A lovely welcoming gesture, but they don't come free! We should have put the wine to one side as it got confused with what we had brought and both bottles were drunk at 9 pounds each! It would be helpful to have a list of prices clearly displayed in the kitchen to avoid this happening so easily. However, the only real hitch came with the refunding of our deposit. We were happy to go with the terms: an initial deposit within a few days of booking in February, then a balance of payment including a refundable deposit of 275 pounds about a month prior to our arrival. Unfortunately we did not receive the refundable deposit back ten days later on 15 June, when we were told we would get it. It would be courteous to keep guests informed after their departure about the refund. We had to email on the 16th to find out what was going on. When we were due to fly and had still heard nothing, we phoned. We were not given a receipt to explain the 18 pounds deducted and therefore had to follow up on that one as well. All prior correspondence was prompt and efficient so this was disappointing.

Liked best: The location. Superb!
Liked least: The problem over the refundable deposit. Stay in touch with guests until everything is concluded. Keep them informed.Ten days after checkout seems a little long to wait. If monies are deducted, there should be a receipt to clarify the reason.

“Well equipped and furnished house in beautiful New Forest location”
Reviewed May 5, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We booked Forest Corner as a convenient location to stay for a few days while attending a family wedding in nearby Fordingbridge. As a couple with two late teen/early twenties daughters who value their own space, the three bedrooms and bathrooms and large downstairs living areas in the house were perfect for us. The property is really well equipped and furnished - it felt like a private home not a holiday rental. Our daughters especially appreciated the fast wifi connection and use of the desktop Mac! A real bonus was the beautiful location literally on the edge of the New Forest - we could walk out of the door, past grazing wild ponies and straight up a lane onto the lovely heathland! Highly recommended.

“Fantastic!!”
Reviewed April 29, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Family Easter holiday with kids........and we stayed for 5 days at this absolutely fantastic location, not only was the accommodation first class but the house catered for absolutely every need that we had during our stay. We will definitely go back again, also a speedy return of the deposit when we returned home. Really enjoyed our time and Forest corner...and will be booking again next year! :) thank you Paul :)

“A fantastic place to unwind and chilax!”
Reviewed February 17, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

A beautiful location and very easy to find!
When first drew up, we thought 'small' but then we entered... the cottage is like a tardis!
Loved the layout and we 5 ladies used the main lounge / dining room. Didn't really use the open fire as it was a very warm cottage!
Everything you needed plus more to make a really good weekend pad. Although paid for hot tub didn't use and a little gutted - but our fault!
Used the local 'The Old Beams' pub for a first class carvery on Sunday and were made very welcome.
Upstairs is cosy but a typical chalet bungalow layout with the sloping ceilings.
Will definitely be back and bring the push bikes next time!

We had a really lovely time the only downside was that it was for such a short time.Everything you need is at the house and there's so much to see and explore within a short walk or a short drive.We will definately be coming back
