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

My wife and I went to stay here for a couple of nights last week. The place was absolutely charming, easy to find, clean, comfortable and warm. The hosts were very polite, welcoming and flexible. You have your own entrance, keys, parking and no one bothers you. it's really nice to be around the animals too. The fact that you can walk out of the gate and be in the middle of the forest is really cool. We really loved this quiet, charming place and would recommend it to anyone. Breakfast was included and was plenty too.

Thanks for everything Sue & Maz.

“Just Perfect”
Reviewed September 21, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

The Garden Room is fantastic, a functional space but with tons of personality. Sue was really friendly and helpful, we even had gorgeous homemade chocolate mousse and quiches on our arrival. We took our cat, Fifi, with us and she was the first cat to stay in the Garden Room - she even had her own welcome note and package of cat food - the little touches were wonderful. Fifi was mesmerised watching the horses each morning!

On our last evening we had a flat tyre (largely due to being run off the narrow roads in the New Forest by a mean 4x4!). Maz was great and gave us a helping hand. We had to get a new tyre the next day and so was about half an hour late checking out, which Sue was not phased by.

It was lovely to walk around and meet with cats, chickens, dogs and horses - I looked forward to coming and going just to get some cuddles!

Would highly recommend the Garden Room to anyone who wants a relaxing break in the heart of the New Forest.

“Comfortable and peaceful”
Reviewed September 11, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Lovely location within walking distance of 2 pubs. The Garden Room had unusual and attractive decor and was very private. Loads of dogs and horses who can be quite noisy in the mornings! Nice tea tray awaited us on arrival. My only criticism is that the breakfast for 3 days was left for us on our arrival which meant that some of the fruit left in the fridge had gone off; I would have preferred fresh bread/croissant and a cafetiere & coffee would be a nice addition as would a DVD player. Bathroom & shower are tiny so if you are large beware! Bed was very comfortable.

Beautiful little cabin in beautiful surrounding.
Hosts were lovely.
Animals wherever you turn which we didn't mind at all, especially Max the Dog, who if my case had been larger I'd have smuggled him out :)
I will return to this gorgeous little hideaway without any hesitation.
There are pubs within walking or biking distance, all of which we liked.
Plenty of bike routes which can quickly turn into cross country treks if you don't keep an eye on where you're going as we found out.
All in all this place is perfect in every sense of the word.
Taking away some beautiful memories from here :)

“Fabulous place to stay”
Reviewed May 27, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

A warm and friendly welcome awaited us at the garden room. Even though we changed the time of our arrival we were made very welcome and shown around this wonderful piece of 'heaven'. It suited us 'down to the ground' we had our own little garden complete with BBQ facilities, and views over hills/fields. Our little jack-russell 1yr.old was also made welcome, even though she had to be on a lead as they had lots of ducks,chickens and guinea-fowl that she loves to chase.
We would definitely go again.

“Lovely place - an animal lover's haven”
Reviewed May 6, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

What a lovely place to stay - surrounded by horses, dogs, chickens, geese & ducks - tucked away in the middle of the countryside yet within striking distance of 2 good pubs. Not that we were short of food with all sorts of home baked delights awaiting us, a bottle of wine and fridge stocked with fresh fruit, homemade yoghurt & jam, and a wide selection of coffee, tea and hot chocolate. Oh and I forgot the chocolates by the bed! Hosts Sue & Maz are delightful - warm, friendly & relaxed. Can't wait to go back.
