May 2019

It was an absolute joy staying here. The cottage is perfect in both its layout and furnishings and its position but a few minutes away from the village centre (brookley road) with its amenities. We loved seeing ponies walking freely around the village and an even bigger bonus was that they regularly appeared walking down the road directly outside the cottage! Yvonne, the owner, is delightful and so helpful, not to mention very generous with her provision of a very well stocked "welcome hamper". Already planning a return visit.

December 2018

The accommodation was perfect in every way. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and we were very impressed with all the lovely Christmas extras.

November 2018

Had a lovely stay. The cottage is really comfortable, warm, cosy, with lots of little extras - fresh flowers, a welcome hamper, wine and milk in the fridge, lovely toiletries, fluffy towels, crisp bedding, etc. Yvonne is a wonderful hostess and made us feel extremely welcome. We would love to return one day soon. Location is great too, an easy 15 min walk into Brokenhurst, although take a torch if you walk in after dark as it is dark and leafy. Everything you need in Brokenhurst too which is a very pretty, friendly village.

November 2018

This was our 3rd visit to Heywood Rest and it never fails to impress. Cannot imagine that there is anywhere nicer than this to spend a holiday in the new forest. The kindness and generosity of the hosts is second to none

November 2018

This was our second stay here and it was just as good as we remembered. The weather was amazing and Heywood Rest is a lovely ‘home from home’. The welcome basket is outstanding and the quality of the accommodation is faultless. Thank you for sharing your little treasure with us again!

November 2018

We had a lovely stay at Heywood Rest and the owners were friendly and made themselves available without being intrusive. The extra touches in the house for our little boy were greatly appreciated. The house is an easy walk into Brockenhurst and good access into other areas in the New Forest. The house is comfortable and has everything you could possibly need.

October 2018

The welcome pack was first class and the owners were very friendly and welcoming

September 2018

A very pleasant stay in an extremely well equipped and taste fully furnished property. There was also an excellent welcome pack awaiting our arrival. Would certainly recommend.

September 2018

We enjoyed Heywood Rest and the New Forest. New Forest Cottages were particularly easy to deal with and we liked the fact that you don’t charge a booking fee. Thank you

August 2018

Property very well appointed. The hamper was a very nice touch. Having milk, bread, tea and coffee there when we arrived was great, as it saved us rushing out straight away. Great place.

August 2018

This has to be one of the best cottages I have ever stayed at in the new forest . A beautiful place to stay in an amazing part of the new forest - have already booked to go back !

August 2018

An absolutely beautiful property. Accomodation was very modern, very well equipped and spotlessly clean. Amazing welcome basket on arrival made our stay extra special. Property in a great location to be able to explore a beautiful part of the country. Would highly recommend Heywood Rest. We will definitely be back in the future.

July 2018

One of the nicest self-catering cottages we've ever stayed in. Not only was it spotlessly clean, the owners had provided everything we needed. They also left a special welcome pack with bread, milk, tea and coffee, as well as some luxury food items. I'd highly recommend Heywood Rest and if we're ever back in the New Forest, this will be our first choice for accommodation.

June 2018

property was first class enjoyed our stay

June 2018

Lovely time and meeting Yvonne was an added bonus.

June 2018

We enjoyed our stay very much. Very clean, comfortable and relaxing.

June 2018

Heywood Rest was a lovely home for our week cycling in the New Forest. The property was beautifully presented with lovely touches such as fresh flowers and of course the very welcome 'welcome pack'. Yvonne also made us feel very welcome when she popped in to introduce herself. The facilities in the home were great with decent oven, hob, cooking utensils, pans, dishes etc., something one doesn't always find in a self catering accommodation. We couldn't fault it. As a base for our cycling, Heywood Rest was ideal. The railway station is only a few minutes away and just behind is the cycle shop where we bought a pack of routes taking us around the southern part of the New Forest - recommended. It is also really easy to take bikes onto the train with no pre-booking. There is a large secure lock-up for your bikes at Heywood Rest with place to dry any wet outdoor clothing. We were blessed with fantastic weather during our stay so all in all, we had a perfect week.

April 2018

We had a lovely week staying in Heywood Rest, the host, Yvonne, was extremely helpful and checked in on us to make sure everything was ok. The bike shed is a perfect space for locking up bikes, plenty of room. We would definitely stay again.

March 2018

We enjoyed our time at Heywood Rest and would confidently recommend it as a comfortable place to stay in The New Forest area.

February 2018

We did enjoy our stay at this cottage. The standard of cleanliness was excellent, could not be faulted at all. The bed was very comfortable, and all linens and towels were of a very high quality. There was an extremely generous welcoming pack which was a lovely touch. The owners made us feel welcome whilst also respecting our privacy. The seating in the lounge was very comfortable. Excellent shower over the bath. Lovely molton brown toiletries in the bathroom and kitchen areas. A very central base for exploring the New Forest.

November 2017

This is our 5th stay in the New Forrest and our 4th stay with NFC. We absolutely loved this place, both the location and the general high standard all round. But what made it so very special was the owner Yvonne who visited us on our arrival to welcome us, she also supplied a really high class basket of ‘goodies’ for us and offered any help and advice if required. She also visited us prior to departing and gave us a gift of high class ‘choccies’ which we thought was a fantastic gesture.( just one thing for future reference Yvonne, we are always on a diet!!!) We are well into our 70s now and would love to think that we will visit the New Forest area again. If we do it will def be Heywoods Rest. We had a fabulous stay. Many thanks.xxx

October 2017

We enjoyed our stay very much - the property was an ideal base - spotlessly clean, very comfortable and the welcome pack was a lovely gesture and very much appreciated - we hope to return.

September 2017

A very enjoyable stay ,lovely touches to make the stay memorable. Yvonne very friendly and eager to make sure all is well.

August 2017

The added personnel touches a and welcome basket was a joy after a long drive. Milk in fridge, bread chocolates and marmalade heaven. Beautiful towels and bed linen were of a very high standard very happy and we book for next year . Also wonderful happy lady that welcome us next day with boxes of cereal . Host was lovely and a journey to talk to. ????

August 2017

This was our second stay at Heywood Rest and it was just as lovely as the first time with a great welcome basket and a little something for our two girls. The accommodation is immaculate and has everything you need for your stay. It is an ideal base to explore the new forest and located 10 minutes walk from the village of Brockenhurst with some good pubs and restaurants, our favourite was Britannia Thai. There are some great bike rides from Brockenhurst to Burley, Beaulieu, Bucklers Hard, Lymington, New Milton and Hurst Castle the majority of which are off road and around 20 miles each which is ideal for our 10 and 12 year old girls. The highlight of our daughters holiday was seeing baby donkeys for the first time out in the forest.

July 2017

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in our favourite location in the New Forest. The welcome basket was much appreciated and a thoughtful gesture was the box of chocolates provided by the owners for our long journey home. Would highly recommend this property to friends and family.

July 2017

A beautiful cottage furnished to a very high standard was the perfect place to relax after long days in the saddle whilst on a Parelli course with our horses in the New Forest based in Brockenhurst. The welcome basket was just perfect with lovely treats and the owner Yvonne was so welcoming, we would definitely come back again.

July 2017

Everything was good especially the welcome hamper and the fresh flowers around the house

July 2017

Yes, we enjoyed our stay. Although the road outside the property has a 30 mile an hour speed limit, it was noisy.

June 2017

We had a lovely week staying at Heywood Rest and were delighted with the accommodation.It is finished to a high standard and kept clean and comfortable.Our host Yvonne looked after us,making sure we had what we needed and that we were enjoying our stay while giving us space to enjoy our holiday. We were able to walk into Brockenhurst and see the ponies roaming.We also had a day trip to Bournemouth. We would definitely stay at Heywood Rest in the future.

June 2017

We greatly enjoyed our stay in this very comfortable, immaculate contemporary house. The generous welcome basket was much appreciated.

April 2017

Great base for cycling the new forest & owners very considerate, respecting our space - considering property directly adjoined theirs. Would have no hesitations booking the same property again - and using your company to do so!

April 2017

We had a really lovely week in this excellent accommodation. The location was perfect and the standard of furnishings was to a very high standard. Our only complaint was the noise from the main road traffic which kept us awake most nights. However all in all a really lovely week.

Thank you for your lovely comments. Heywood is in a perfect location as you say. We are sorry the road disturbed you during your stay. The road is a 30mph road and is quiet during the evenings and overnight. Ponies also frequent this road which is a lovely addition when walking straight from the front entrance of the grounds.

April 2017

This was a beautiful cottage equipped with everything you need and beautifully appointed. It is in a perfect location for touring the new forest and beyond and close to all village amenities. The owners provided a very much appreciated welcome pack. This will be the first cottage we look for when considering our next holiday in the new forest.

March 2017

Warm, welcoming, well appointed and comfortable. We appreciated the nice touches for the children. The property proved to be a great base for our family's explorations. A big thank you.

February 2017

A really lovely place to stay. We would definitely go back.

January 2017

Beautiful property, felt like home from home. Everything you could possibly need and more. Everything was thought about to a minute detail, plus very thoughtful extras basket. Fabulous location for the New Forest, Brokenhurst had wonderful pubs and restaurants. Looking forward to a return visit later in the year.

January 2017

The property was in a prime location and was beautifully fitted out with good quality furnishings and fittings. The attention to detail for our stay at Christmas was quite outstanding especially the welcome basket. Our stay was very special and we would recommend this property to everyone.

November 2016

Lovely comfortable accommodation in a good location for exploring the forest and coast. The light and airy living / dining / kitchen area was great for relaxing in and drinking the welcome pack wine after a day out in the fresh air!

October 2016

Such an enjoyable week at HeywoodRest. The accommodation is excellent, finished to a high standard with lots of little extras to make it feel like home. The welcome basket was unexpected and very gratefully received. The bedrooms are bigger than they look from the pictures with lots of storage, great for us especially with a 10 week old baby! This was the perfect base for us to explore the New Forest and we hope to stay at Heywood Rest again soon :)

October 2016

We have just had a really good week in a delightful property. We found a hamper with lots of goodies waiting for us. The cottage was immaculate could not have wished for better. We needed a good rest and that we achieved. Had a lovely cream tea and a lunch at the Rosie Lee Tea Kitchen, you can book a table 01590 622909, love the blankets and hot water bottles in case you felt you needed warming up (we didn't ) they also did good lunches. Also had a nice meal at the Hare and Hounds.

September 2016

Perfect location, perfect accommodation, perfect hosts makes for a perfect holiday. We are just finishing our week long holiday and we could not have chosen a better place to stay. The cottage is stunning and provides a WOW factor as soon as you walk through the door. Everything has been thoughtfully put together to guarantee your comfort during your stay. Overwhelmed with the kind gestures of fresh flowers and welcome basket. You could not wish for more which gives this cottage our highest recommendation. Thank you so much.

September 2016

Beautiful accommodation, tastefully decorated and perfectly presented including high quality linens and towels. Owner very pleasant and welcoming, and gave us all the space we needed. Wonderful finishing touches including fresh flowers and welcome basket, which were gratefully received, even a basket of spare toiletries in the bathroom, just in case we forgot something. Lovely area, in a beautiful village, lots of ponies, donkeys and even cattle roaming around the village and Heath. I hope to return again soon, and am recommending to friends.

August 2016

Very nice property and owners would definately stay there again

July 2016

One of the nicest holiday cottages I've ever stayed in. Beautifully presented and brand new, with a really hospitable owner. We appreciated all the thoughtful touches - they made us feel very welcome - we didn't want to leave!

July 2016

I loved my week long holiday at Heywood Rest. It was just what I needed, perfect relaxing getaway hideaway in the heart of the forest. Beautiful surroundings which ooze style and comfort with everything you would need (and more!) for a comfortable stay. Great location with easy access to the forest and local shops and attractions. Reading my book on the sun deck with a chilled glass of wine of an evening was bliss. The owners of this property are lovely and so welcoming but also private. Beautiful hamper full of treats upon arrival which was a great touch too. Thank you for a wonderful stay! I can't wait to come back :)

June 2016

Thank so you so much for organising our New Forest trip, we had such a lovely time. The kids really enjoyed themselves. Everything went swimmingly and even the weather held off for us. The cottage was perfect. Great location, really, really nice (hence cries of "why doesn't our house look like this?") and the Judds looked after us with lots of treats too, which was a really nice touch
