Our first time to the New Forest and we chose this small studio cabin as our place to stay.
The cabin was lovely and has everything you could possibly need in it.
The kitchen is well appointed with all the basic equipment.
The bathroom is also well done given the small space available with enough room for shower.
The bedroom and living area is spacious and very comfortable to use, the TV also has everything you could want including complimentary Netflix.
Bed was relatively comfortable but could do with some new pillows but a very minor issue.
Lastly the hot tub is great for a starry night, it's very comfortable to sit in. Be warned it's not a quick process but I enjoyed the process of filling and lighting the stove underneath to get it warm. The whole process took me roughly 3 hours.
The welcome from Mike was great and he showed us where everything we would need was and how to use the apartment.
Overall a lovely little place to stay and use as a base to visit all of new forest.
A well appointed and modern loft. It has just about everything you need and although the space is small it has been well thought out. All appliances are modern and compact and there are nice little touches like fresh milk in the fridge upon arrival. The entertainment system and wifi are both excellent. The host is a good communicator and very attentive to all your needs. He was very kind to us after we made a mistake with our arrival date.
The shower pressure is slightly low and there is not a good place for somebody to do there hair or makeup. The bed and pillows were not quite to my liking and it would have been nice to have a bit more cupboard space to unpack fully.
The outdoor hothub is great fun but is quite an undertaking to get ready.
Accessing the property is easy and there is a good amount of privacy for the setup.
There is a large Tesco very near by and Hythe is about a mile away where there is a Waitrose, pubs and restaurants.
There are plenty of good walks near by but you do need to drive to a starting point rather than leaving directly from the cabin, although not very far.
My partner and I stayed here from 23rd to 27th Dec as a getaway from the stresses of Christmas. Mike was helpful and on hand for just about everything, including heating the hottub. As previous reviews have stated, the hottub takes a while to heat but it gave us time for a hot toddy
We would love to visit in the summer when it is warmer. It is a beautiful place to stay. Thank you so much Mike x

Really friendly welcome from Mike, lovely apartment with all the things you'd need. The hot tub was great, even in the November chill, looking up at stars and hearing owls :) We loved that you could walk out to the forest with only a bit of roadside walking before you get to the countryside, which is just gorgeous.
