This is a well equipped, beautifully maintained cottage by the New Forest. 2 mins walk through the well maintained gardens and you are straight into New Forest. Ponies right at the garden gate. Fabulous walks for our labrador. Dog friendly property owners, who even provide a hose and dog towel!
We had stunning autumnal weather to top of our visit. Fay was very welcoming and informative of local information from shopping to walks and entertainment.
Thank you... we will be back for sure.
Quick mention.. fantastic birds on feeders.. woodpeckers, coal tits, nuthatches to name a few... we could have sat watching them from the patio all day!
A spotless comfortable cottage ideally situated for the New Forest. Equipped with everything you need and more with the owners next door should you need them.
A 5 star accommodation. Would definitely stay again and highly recommend.
We were recommended this cottage by some friends. We booked a three night stay with our two dogs. After getting instructions prior to the journey, we found the place very easy to find. There is plenty of rooms for parking. We were greeted by Fay who spent a considerable time making sure were shown everything. We had to use her services straightaway to find the nearest vet as we had left one of the dogs medication at home.
The cottage is very spacious with a reasonable kitchen, dining area and a pleasant comfortable lounge. The bedroom is large with plenty of storage available. One thing that stands out is the high quality of all the equipment together with all the nice extra touches around the accommodation.
The sliding doors in the lounge area open out to a raised patio area that is enclosed and very useful if you have dogs. The gate from the patio leads down to the garden. Crossing the garden you arrive at another gate that allows you into a very large paddock. This is also enclosed and is a great place for the dogs to exercise.At the bottom end of the paddock is a gate into the forest.
We were unlucky with the weather as we had plenty of rain and wind during our stay. We did do a lot of walking in the forest because of this. We visited the seaside resorts on the nearby Dorset coast, Ringwood and we found a delightful country park - Avon Heath. During our walk in this country we had our only glimpse of the sun. This was an excellent place for dog walking.
We had a really good stay and I would recommend Picket Hill Cottage without any hesitation.
Super cottage, the photos don't give you an appreciation of the room sizes which are very generous. Faye and John we're very welcoming without being intrusive. The cottage is spotlessly clean and well-equipped. Great location for long walks in the New Forest and short drive to Ringwood and Christchurch.
We loved this cottage. The accommodation is excellent and of a very high standard. It is very well equipped and set in beautiful surroundings. It is a perfect base for many walks from the door and in a good position for visiting nearby attractions. The friendly hosts made us very welcome, they were very helpful and informative. We will definitely return.
Situated 2 miles from Ringwood, on doorstep new forest. Ideal for us as we had two small dogs and the cottage had everything you could wish for an enjoyable stay. Decorated nicely and biggest plus was exceptionally clean. Our adult Daughter stayed on the large leather sofa bed in lounge which was very comfortable. Lovely touches ie milk, coffee, danish pastry on arrival. Lovely big bathroom and shower pressure was good. Will definitely stay again.
Fab all you need is included for a peaceful and pleasant stay at this lovely cottage. Just a 100 yards from a cattle grid into the new forest . Lovely and clean facilities bedroom beautiful and owners on hand if needed. Will be booking again
