The house is lovely, clean and spacious with a great garden, and the owners are very helpful and seem to have thought of everything. The location is ideal, especially for none car drivers as it close to the village and train station but on a very quiet road (apart from ponies wondering past from time to time). I won't write any more as we liked it so much we want to go again, and don't want it to get booked up too many years in advance!
Myself & my grown up children & granddaughter spent a lovely long weekend at Hathersage in Brockenhurst to celebrate my 60th birthday. The house is fantastic, the layout is perfect for larger families of varying ages & having 3 bathrooms makes all the difference.
The wonderful kitchen/diner/lounge area across the back of the house with bi-fold doors leading out onto a great back garden is perfect for family meals & games nights as well as outdoor fun. Having a separate quiet lounge at the front where those who need to retreat from the mayhem of family life is an added bonus!
The location in Brockenhurst village with the train station on the doorstep is perfect for thise travelling without a car & also to be able to get out to all the nearby attractions such as Beaulieu Motor Museum, Paultons Park, Longdown Activity Farm, Moors Valley Country Park & of course the wonderful New Forest itself with the loveky walks & picnic spots amongst the ponies, one of which wandered up our road after our arrival!
I cannot thank Alison enough for making our stay at Hathersage such a happy one & for providing for all our needs, even leaving a bottle of Prosecco in the fridge to help me celebrate my grand old age! Flowers in the kitchen & a welcoming card as well as comprehensive instructions & information to help make our stay a truly wonderful memory!

Had a thoroughly enjoyable two weeks with extended family in this beautifully presented very well equipped house. Everything has been considered. House close to both Station and Village. Owners very helpful and thoughtful. Although Winter, excellent heating-it was a delight to return to after a days outing.
We had a lovely short break at Hathersage Cottage with our son, partner and one year old grandson. The cottage itself is ideally situated and was beautifully presented and clean. Would definitely like to visit during summer months to enjoy the garden which is accessed via the open plan kitchen/diner which is like the rest of the cottage beautiful!
Thank you to the owners who were very attentive even contacting Marie whilst we were there to ensure we were warm enough.
We stayed here for 4 nights in early November. Wow, what a place! We can't speak highly enough of the accommodation. The space, decor, styling and equipment were all exceptional but it was the attention to detail that we really loved and appreciated. The welcome basket with card and goodies was a lovely touch and our one year old son loved the play mat and toy baskets that were provided.
Alison was so kind and, as she wasn't in the area, even dropped us a message one day to see if we were all warm enough in the house as it had suddenly got so cold! Most people wouldn't have bothered but it really showed that she cares whether her guests are having a good time.
The location is also fantastic. A few minutes walk into lovely Brockenhurst saying hello to the roaming donkeys and ponies on the way. And so much to see and do in the vicinity, all within a short drive from the house.
In summary, this is a gem of a place, we will definitely be returning next year!
I celebrated a special birthday with my family at Hathersage and the property was ideal. There was a wonderful kitchen/family room looking on to the garden where the children had plenty of space to play.. The grand-children really enjoyed all the toys provided. The property is really well equipped with everything one could need. It was spotlessly clean and beautifully furnished. We enjoyed the local area and also it was just a short drive to Mudeford, Hengisbury Head and Christchurch. The owners responded very quickly to any enquiries before our stay and were extremely helpful during our holiday.
