This was our second stay at the cottage. We greatly enjoyed our stay and hope to return. We found the little Farm Shop very useful and the lady running it extremely pleasant and helpful. We had one meal out at the Pub in Emery Down, otherwise were self-catering.
Apart from the two items listed above, we were very happy with our stay.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Lovely, comfortable cottage in idyllic surroundings. Very friendly welcome from all concerned.
Beautiful location, clean, well equipped cottage
This was our first visit to this cottage and to this part of the New Forest. We were very impressed with the cottage, the helpful welcome we got from the locals - and the location with its immediate access to the Forest. We also found the nearby Acres Down Shop very useful. Unfortunately we chose to visit Lyndhurst on the Saturday morning. It took ages to get there because of the enormous traffic queue and the car park was brimfull. I hope I never make this mistake again ! We hope to have the opportunity to book the cottage again if it is available in the future.
we enjoyed it very much in the woods.lovely ladies in the farm shop(recommend the meat) and tea room (very nice cream tea) peaceful restful stay go cycling and walking in the forest have a pint in the local pubs .
The location is stunning and seeing cows outside the gate is just wonderful! The cottage is lovely, and the bedrooms a really good size, with excellent storage and lots of lamps make it really cosy. The kitchen is well stocked with equipment and a dishwasher! The cottage was lovely and clean on arrival. We would definitely stay here again, but for the fact that we like the novelty of staying in different cottages!
The pictures showing the garden and surrounding fields are very misleading. Having a family that wanted to get out and enjoy the garden and surrounding fields, we weren't able to use the garden as we would have wanted to as the lawn was overgrown and the grass covered in apples, making it dangerous to walk on. Also the pictures don't show the fact that the fields have cows in them, again making it unable to use. It's a shame as the cottage was perfect otherwise in a great location.
We are sorry to hear that the garden was overgrown and we will be looking into this. The property is on a working farm , as described, which will explain why there were cows in the fields during your stay.

We enjoyed our stay. There were several places to sit and eat or relax. The diningroom and conservatory were welcome havens when some of us were watching the television. I would definitely recommend the cottage to others and hope to return with my daughter and grandchildren maybe next year. They would love it!
Really enjoyed our stay at Acres farm. Wild ponies visited us most mornings. Peaceful and cosy. The farm house was perfect for our family of 5.
This is a lovely old farm cottage, cosy and well equipped. Situated in a quiet spot on a working farm with wonderful walks just five minutes from the door and easy access to the rest of the New Forest.
Nice spacious cottage with great access to the forest.
