For this return visit we took our Australian cousin - and our dog! - as we've always loved it. Our cousin was fascinated to stay in an authentic thatched English cottage and thought it was lovely. As usual, the accommodation lived up to our expectations and she got used to ducking her head on the staircase(she's tall). The cottage is clean, cosy and warm within walking distance of the beautiful village of Lyndhurst, and our cousin loved seeing the ponies on the green opposite, on the edge of the forest. It was good to have the 2 bathrooms and off-road parking for the car. Nice to have 2 good pubs within walking distance, though kitchen is well-stocked with everything, including a dishwasher. We really look forward to returning and there are now numerous photos of the cottage in Australia!

Stayed at the cottage with my husband and 2 daughters. I appreciated the cottage a lot because it was welcoming, cozy and very clean. I have a 7 year old and 1 year old child and found a lovely room with a cot, toys, books and games for kids of all ages. It made me feel as I was at home. The cottage brings you back in time as it's furnished and perfectly preserved as it would be in 1600 still offering modern comfort. The area offers a lot to do for active families and non.

Management Response
Sep 22, 2013
We are disappointed that the guest was not happy with her 2 day stay at our property. The cottage is a 400 year old, protected Grade II listed building, retaining most of the original features and it would be rather incongruous to have modern furnishing.

The staircase in question is typical of the period and is fitted with a safety gate. Although the majority of our guests obviously have young children, the staircase has never posed a problem. All bedrooms have their own access.

Regarding the location of the cottage - it is exactly as described on the site. Perhaps, as all over the Forest, during peak hours on a hot August weekend, the traffic may have been more intense.

On reading our visitor book, guests will find it is full of enthusiastic compliments written by both children and adults. I would also like to add that many of our guests are returning clients.
