We had a lovely stay at Forest Cottage. It's in a great location with easy walks across the heath and to the village shop. Lymington, Boldre, Brockenhurst and Beaulieu were close by and all the lovely walks and tracks in the forest were not far away either. We thought the cottage was well equipped, the garden was secluded and pretty and the area was very quiet. The owner had provided a lot of useful books about nature and wildlife and there was a cupboard full of games. It was lovely each morning to see the ponies with their foals rolling and splashing in the pond opposite. The welcome pack was a nice touch. Thank you.
We had a lovely long weekend in Forest Cottage, the weather was wonderful so we spent a lot of time in the beautiful garden. The cottage was lovely and had everything we needed for a great weekend break.
Lovely old cottage with low beams upstairs.
Very much, we had exceptional February weather
Lovely cottage, peaceful and beautiful. Lovely walks right from the cottage.
Wonderful week in this idyllic house located in the heart of the forest.
Wonderful cottage and location thoroughly enjoyed
A very enjoyable stay in a clean and very well appointed cottage. Will certainly consider again for any future visit to the New Forest and will have no hesitation in recommending to my friends.
Fantastic find. Great walks from the front door. Kids loved watching the deer on the heath only a 5-10 minute walk from the cottage. Hope to return soon.
