We have just stayed here for a 2 week holiday and have loved the cottage. It's a short walk
to lyndhurst and easy access to the rest of the New Forest. Lots of character and atmosphere!
We have just had a week at this beautiful cottage tucked away in the New Forest...it is situated by the village cricket green and easily within walking distance or two good pubs. Lovely secure garden for our elderly spaniel and two every noisy grandsons.....It was just as described and very clean. Only a couple of comments...one being that the stairs are not suitable for young children..ours were two and four and there were no handrails of any sort to help them. Also being so steep its really not safe carrying them so rope or rail would be a help...also for myself I have just had a knee replacement so am on crutches so I was also unable to go upstairs at all so spent my week sleeping on the sofa bed which would have been OK for a couple of nights but. not great for the week...and would be good if someone could check the oven temp as we think that it really is not as it should be..I cooked a chicken which said it needed a hour and a half and with the oven as high as it would go it took almost three hour's.
Apart from these little issues it is a lovely cottage and a fabulous area for a holiday. So much to see and places to visit.....Would recommend it to friends.
We stayed at this wonderful pretty thatched cottage in August with our family from Canada consisting of a 5 year old, 14 year old, 17 year old and 4 adults. It was a dream come true to stay here as our family had actually lived in this cottage several generations ago. This cottage was everything and more than the description described and communication with the owner was excellent from start to finish. All amenities are provided and we were surprised at the large layout and of course the two bathrooms were a big plus. The beds were comfortable and overall the property was clean with a manicured large back garden. We would love to come back again for another stay.
We had a great time here and arrived 'home' to all the essentials , bread, Milk, butter and even a wee dram. The house was lovely and warm and there was plenty of hot water! We went exploring in the forrest across the road and had great fun even when we lost a wellie in to the muck :-)
Everything was lovely and clean and the bed linen smelt beautiful!
There were 8 of us and we really enjoyed our stay.
It was a challenge to cook Christmas dinner, but we definitely came out on top!
Thanks and we would definitely stay again.
Great stay with my family, the cottage was amazing! The kids had loads of fun and enjoyed it a lot. There were many activities in the neighborhood for them and for us. The New forest was truly beautiful. Great stay, will definitely come back. Many compliments
This is a beautiful cottage in a great location smack in the middle of the New Forest, perfectly located for access to everything. We took our four children (15, 13, 7 & 5) and two golden retrievers and had more than enough space. There is also an enclosed rear garden which is well kept and great for children and dogs alike. The cottage interior is well furnished and in good condition.
It is on a busy road and this did bother us a little early in the mornings, but not too much. Good responses from the owner to questions and an accomodating approach.
