Little Cottage is a delightful, well-appointed, pretty thatch and partly cob, ground floor one-bedroom cottage quietly situated on a private forest track inside the New Forest National Park in the hamlet of Tiptoe. Originally built around 200 years ago as outbuildings, stables and pigsty, Little Cottage was completely renovated in 2013 - with new thatch, all new fittings and gas central heating throughout. An old, low stable-door has been retained which leads to a sun-trap south and west facing courtyard. Located in the south of the National Park, Tiptoe is close to New Milton and Sway - a good base for exploring both the south coast and the New Forest.

Property Self-catering holiday cottage
It is a lovely well equipped cottage with a very considerate owner who pays great attention to all the details that help make a holiday special, we had a good time despite the weather.
Being perfectly honest, when I was looking for a holiday cottage I picked Little Cottage because I’d always wanted to stay in a thatched cottage but having just returned from our weeks stay all I can say is WOW. I could wax lyrical about Little Cottage but you might get bored of reading, I’m no author and I don’t think I could describe fully how much effort Stephen has put into making sure that everything and anything you could possibly need for your stay was there and that included the dog! Suffice it to say that, in our opinion, Little Cottage is a credit to it’s owners, fully deserves it’s 5 star rating and we count ourselves fortunate that we were lucky enough to get a cancellation for the Easter weekend. We would have no hesitation in telling you to grab the opportunity if you get the chance – it was absolutely fantastic. Thank You Stephen for a wonderful experience
This is the 4th or 5th time we have stayed here and it never disappoints. Host is brilliant and the cottage is wonderful. Probably the best we have ever stayed in.
Another great week. Thank you
Stephen is a brilliant host.
Another wonderful stay
Most enjoyable week, cottage and garden amazing, so quiet. Close to the coast and Forest. Good places to eat out, but we found we were more than happy to self cater. The owner was really helpfull and information on the local area was all in folders for us to look at. Post codes for car parks was really useful
Excellent cottage with great attention to detail by the owner
We had a fantastic relaxing break at little cottage...ever thing we needed and more, with nothing overlooked by the landlord Stephen. Beautiful traditional thatched cottage and gardens and a perfect base to explore The New Forest. We will definitely stay there again.
If anyone can improve on this, then I’ll eat my hat!
This holiday let is the most excellent one we have been to since coming to the New Forest. Everything you could possibly want, and an excellent landlord. Perfect.
all eally positive feedback. A really good host for his property and would definitely stay there again
Very much enjoyed our 7TH stay in this cottage.
What can I say that I have not said on previous occasions! Best dog cottage we have stayed in!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Little Cottage, Tiptoe, there was much more than we expected and the attention to detail and warm welcome from Stephen was excellent. Certainly hope to book up again next year.
Another excellent week. We will be rebooking. Thankyou Stephen
The cottage was excellent. Stephen’s thoughtfulness and attention to detail is second to none. Each room was meticulously planned and resourced. As a cook it was a welcome surprise to get decent knives and a good sharpener. We loved the welcome touches; the personalised treats for Florence the greyhound and a whole array of lactose free goodies for us. Stephen also kindly researched excursions and dog friendly places to eat that catered for my lactose intolerance. Complimentary with the obvious care and attention, our hosts were unobtrusive and the Cottage feels private and peaceful. It’s a gem of a place, roomy enough for two but cosy nonetheless. We loved it. The bed particularly was extremely comfortable. The location is also perfect. Right near some of the most beautiful parts of the forest. We loved Horseshoe Bottom and the areas south and east of Sway. Genuinely can’t recommend Little Cottage highly enough.
This was our second stay at Little Cottage and although these visits were three years apart the 5 star standard has been maintained and continually improved over the years. Stephen is justifiably proud of his cottage which is without doubt the best equipped holiday let we’ve ever rented. The standard of fittings, fixtures and equipment is second to none and the welcome pack of groceries will keep you fed for a day or so. Stephen’s administration ensures that you will receive a thorough introduction to the property and surrounding area, nothing is left to chance, an exceptional experience!
Little Cottage is an absolute gem & we are delighted to have discovered it. It met and far exceeded our expectations in terms of comfort & amenities provided. The owner Stephen met us on arrival & offered a guided tour of the property which was gratefully accepted - it saved us having to try to work out the central heating controls etc! The kitchen was kitted out with everything you could require, even down to fresh herbs growing outside in the courtyard. Stephen had also provided some fresh foodstuffs to get us started which were most welcome after our long, long drive down the country. The enclosed garden was lovely and the courtyard was a delight. This was our first foray into the New Forest area and hopefully it won't be the last. Should we venture that way again then we will most certainly look to stay at Little Cottage. A real home from home.
This was our second stay at Little Cottage as it was so good last year. Stephen is an absolute dream as he thinks of everything you could possibly need. He had also researched and planned some walks for us that we hadn't managed to do last year; going above and beyond and exceeding our expectations. We could not have felt more welcome on our return visit. The cottage is beautiful and Stephen keeps it to an incredibly high standard. It is situated in a lovely quite village and ideally placed for exploring the New Forest and beyond. This will not be our last visit and we look forward to next time. Once again thank you Stephen for all you help and suggestions.
Once again, Stephen's personalisation of the stay made it all the more enjoyable. Nothing left to chance. Home from home and cannot wait to return next year
We really enjoyed our stay in Little Cottage. The property is well loved and looked after by the owners and attention to detail cannot be faulted. The provision of breakfast was thoughtful and appreciated. The provision of the parking clock was very appreciated and saved us a number of pounds. We would recommend this property.
When we arrived Stephen was there to welcome us & give a comprehensive demonstration of the property & all the equipment which we found very helpful. There were also kind little touches like a special bag of doggie treats with the dogs name, in particular the the bone. Also welcoming items to greet us such as local produce, coffee, instant & machine & even chocolate biscuits. There was also a baskets of gifts to choose from. The location was ideal for travelling around the area because we could avoid most of the traffic hotspots. Stephen was very helpful with local information & when we told him we were travelling to the Isle of Wight he even provided some brochures for us. The garden was perfect for the dog & relaxing with plenty of chairs & loungers, unfortunately due to the weather we didn't make full use of it. I can thoroughly recommend Little Cottage & wouldn't hesitate to book again if we come to the New Forest.
Really enjoyed the New Forest, very dog friendly. Little Cottage was very well equipped and the welcome and information provided by the owner was second to none. Would recommend the Hare & Hounds in Sway (gastro pub) for food. Will certainly be returning to Little Cottage sometime in the future.
We have just spent our 6th stay in Little cottage. For more than 40 years we have stayed in holiday cottages all over Great Britain if there is a better holiday cottage or a better host than Stephen we have yet to find them but will keep on looking. Need we say more in order to relate our opinion of this cottage. There is little doubt that we shall be back again next year.
The owner, Stephen, went out of his way to make us feel welcome. There was artisan bread and local butter waiting for us, as well as lots of extra goodies in the fridge, such as strawberries and ice cream, and even treats for the dog. The cottage was delightful, and the enclosed garden made it ideal for the dog. It was only minutes from plenty of walks with panoramic views over the New Forest, and only a short drive from the coast. It is ideal dog-walking country, with plenty of dog-friendly pubs, and is certainly a place we would love to return to.
Little Cottage is a piece of heaven on earth. We had a fantastic week - especially enjoying the beautiful, peaceful garden and listening to birdsong. This is a wonderful place to stay - it is immaculate, comfortable and has everything you could possibly wish for. The owner, Stephen, is an extremely generous host - thinking of all sorts of things to make your stay a little bit more special. Nothing is too much trouble - you could not want a more thoughtful and helpful person to provide you with everything to make your holiday at Little Cottage truly wonderful. Even our dog is spoilt - with lovely handmade biscuits - some even with his name on! We will definitely be going again next year.
Everything was first class, from the property itself, furnishing, welcome pack, including the gifts to us! The garden was ideal for our little dog, and the cottage situation was great for exploring the area, which we did at great lengths, including visiting two National Trust properties, as we are members. Stephen recommended the local farm shop, where we bought wonderful steaks and other local produce. We ate out only once at a local pub, which didn't impress me much, and other times we ate out lunchtime, wherever we happened to be. Other than that, my wife cooked in the evening (steaks twice) which suited us well, including wine, as I did not have to drive home. Stephen was great, his knowledge on the area, and other matters was superb. We had a great laugh together, and was sorry to part. My jokes wore him out once he had stopped laughing, but we all felt like old friends, and will hopefully see him again next year, as there are still several places to visit. The weather was very good, which enhanced our visit Overall, we would award our visit 10/10
The cottage has everything you could need. The owner Stephen clearly cares that the guests are catered for. There are little treats and extra which are really welcome touches.
Littles Cottage was absolutely wonderful. It is the best holiday home we have ever stayed in. We would wholeheartedly recommend it. It's an absolute gem.
Everything about Little Cottage was excellent. We cannot fault the attention to detail and first class service from Mr Stephen Tarling. We cannot fault the standard of everything in the cottage - decor, facilities, welcome goodies, guides to the property and the New Forest area, dog treats, the gift hamper, etc., etc. The loan of the local O.S. map was very much appreciated as well as an excellent selection of local books (guides and history). The garden and courtyard gave ample private space with plenty of chairs and tables to choose from. Tiptoe village is quiet and pleasant with new nearby green managed by volunteers to a high standard which is a credit to everyone involved, as well as a network of lanes to explore from the cottage. Little Cottage is a treat to real treat to stay in.
Superb, comfortable, well equipped, thoughtful owner, would highly recommend. Stephens attention to detail makes it the perfect place to relax, everything has been thought through to provide the perfect holiday.
A great base for both the forest and the coast. Little Cottage is a very warm and cosy cottage. The bed was extremely comfortable and the electric blanket a delight. Stephens collection of cd's dvd 's and a library of books are superb and the TV and cd player are great for relaxing with at the end of a busy day. The coast has many lovely towns to visit and a visit to Lymington market on Saturday morning is a must. Beaulieu icecream parlour sells beautiful icecream and a visit and a walk through the streets a great treat. A great week in the forest in a lovely cottage . Thank you
This was our first stay at Little Cottage and we loved it. The cottage is cosy and warm with everything you need plus plenty more. Stephen had thought of everything to make our stay as enjoyable as possible with food in the fridge and vases of fresh flowers to welcome us. Even our little dog had treats and a chocolate lollipop waiting for him! All the rooms were of a very high standard with everything spotlessly clean and tidy. Another extra that we found very useful was the parking clock which we displayed on the car dashboard to get three hours free parking in the New Forest Council car parks. The cottage is situated in an ideal spot for visiting both the forest and the coast and we hope to return again next year.
Little Cottage - Big Holiday Experience! A truly wonderful cottage in a quiet and peaceful area. It had absolutely everything and more that we need in a holiday cottage; enclosed garden for our dog, comfortable bed, not just clean but pristine, great TV and wifi, lovely bathroom and shower. Everything we needed in the kitchen - great cooker, big fridge/freezer and dishwasher as well as lovely crockery and other items to make it feel home from home. The owner, Stephen, thinks of everything to ensure you enjoy your holiday and makes you feel really welcome. There are lots of lovely treats and surprises too - like ice-creams in the freezer, fresh bread, bacon and eggs etc in the fridge. Stephen is a very generous and thoughtful host - ensuring we had accurate directions and was on hand if we had any problems. Our dog gives this cottage "5 bones" - especially as he was provided with his own dog biscuits with his name on them! Just wonderful and we will definitely be going to Little Cottage again!
My Partner and I stayed for a week at Christmas. The Cottage is delightful, well maintained and in a superb location. We had a wonderful time. I highly recommend a break at little Cottage.
Our first visit to the New Forest and this lovely thatch cottage owned by Stephen who was extremely helpful and informative of the property and the area.It definitely is worth its 5 star rating as all the facilities were excellent and also the condition of this 200 year old building.We would have no hesitation in recommending this cottage and will definitely be back for another visit.Our westie Eidur enjoyed all the treats kindly provided by Stephen too !
Our first visit to Little Cottage and we were not disappointed. The Cottage is excellently equipped, in a peaceful setting and the owner Stephen was very welcoming and attentive and clearly has much pride in the proprerty and it fully deserves its rating. Lovely little touches in place, including some treats for our little dog Poppy. We love the beauty of the New Forest and will certainly be back again.
Delighted with our week's stay. A very warm comfortable billet despite the cold weather. Slept very well all week. Cottage has everything one could wish for and more besides. The gluten free goodies were much appreciated- Thank you Stephen. Had an excellent meal at the Silver Hind in Sway and Rosie Lea in Brockenhurst provides a choice of homemade gluten free scones. Certainly hope to return in 2017. Very impressed.
Fabulous location. Adorable cottage with every need catered for. Definitely 5 stars. Quality finishes, appliances, great wifi and electronic equipment and small touches that delighted us. Exceeded expectations and Stephen was an amazing host. Thank you.
This is our second visit this year and more than lived up to our expectations. The cottage is wonderfully equipped, warm and in a great location. We combine our stay with a trip to our son in Southampton so it is perfect. Stephen is the perfect host, very helpful and knowledgeable but not interfering in any way. We will be back. Gina Stokes
This was our 6th visit so it should show you how great this cottage is. You get a special personal welcome by Stephen
This was our fourth visit to Little Cottage and we loved it just as much as we have before; the forest is stunning in the Autumn and because it only takes a few minutes to walk to the open heath with the dog, we enjoyed several misty morning walks in the sunshine. The cottage itself was beautiful, as ever, and Stephen has continued to make sure it enjoys every creature comfort imaginable (for those of us with two legs and four). Our only problem with Little Cottage is leaving it at the end of the week; it feels so much like home!
Sometimes in life you meet a special person and Stephen is one, and to top it off with a very spacil place in little cottage. What more could you ask for. This short of thing does not come along very often, so if your thinking of booking Little cottage don't hasitate,do it! Everything the guests have said above I indorse and more,if that's atall possible. With all are thanks, Gary,Julie,and our boy Dougal.
Really great week. The cottage was very comfortable, clean and warm. Perfect place to stay with our newborn baby girl. Stephen was very friendly and welcoming. An exceptional host....thank you very much!
LITTLE COTTAGE in TIPTOE was Excellent, we loved it so much we booked again for next year on day two of our stay. A beautiful cottage, and Stephen the owner was Fantastic. See you in 2017.... can't wait.
Little Cottage is absolutely beautiful. We rebooked immediately to return for another week next year! Stephen was so wonderful and made us feel welcome right from the start giving us a tour of the cottage and information about the local area which is all available to hand in the cottage. We found it very central for visits to Brownsea Island and the Mary Rose in Portsmouth. The Hawk Conservancy near Andover is also worth a visit. The cottage was very comfortable and worth more than the 5 star rating. Stephen really has thought of everything. Nothing is too much trouble and we are so looking forward to our next visit and for many years to come. Thank you again Stephen and see you again in 2017.
This was our second holiday at Little Cottage,we were looking for something special and we definitely found it here.!!!! It's the sweetest,cleanest,fantastically dog friendly cottage ever.Stephen is an amazing host, so helpful. The New Forest is beautiful and this cottage is so well situated to enjoy it all.
We have just returned from a week at Little Cottage where we stayed with our Westie Max. The cottage was perfect, spotlessly clean and so well-equipped. Max loved the garden, which is fully enclosed and very dog-friendly. Stephen cannot do enough for you and is always on hand if you need him. Thank you Stephen for a wonderful, relaxing week. Little Cottage will be our go-to choice when we are planning any future trips to the New Forest.
From the moment you cast your eyes on the stunning cottage, you are absorbed into the beauty of the place, the hospitality of the owner and the incredible New Forest. We had great weather too. What an incredibly well equipped cottage complemented by a very helpful owner, who leaves nothing to chance. You will be impressed by the experience, which made this one of our best holidays ever. Even our Border Collie was treated like royalty.
A great cottage
This cottage certainly lives up to the 5 star rating. The location is well placed between the New Forest park and the costal towns and is very quiet and peaceful. Stephen, the owner, always gives an introductory walk through on arrival, to this very well equipped cottage. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this perfect one bed cottage.
A lovely comfortable and very well equipped cottage in peaceful location and within easy reach of the sea and the Forest The owner was very welcoming and provided many extras to make the holiday even more special. It was great to find a cottage of such quality that welcomed dogs (and provided treats for them). We will be back!
We have just completed our 5th stay at Little cottage. I could tell you about the wonderful cottage, wonderful location, wonderful host, wonderful facilities, wonderfully furnished, wonderful goodies on arrival etc. etc. you get the idea but the fact we are already planning when our 6th. visit will be really says it all. Would not stay anywhere else in the New Forest. Norman and Judy Craik
It was a lovely comfortable and very spotlessly clean cottage with all the amenities. The broadband was excellent and a nice big TV so I was happy. Everything about it was excellent. A good location for visiting the New Forest.
We had a wonderful stay with our 11 month old daughter and our dog at Little Cottage. It was lovely to return to a such a beautiful cottage after our long walks and lunches out and around the New Forest.
This is the most well-appointed cottage we have ever stayed in. There are luxuries all round, including special surprises for our dog. Luckily, given the array of gadgets, Stephen explains what all the remote controls do! Well worth a stay. Even the weather was good (in February)! Thank you Stephen...
My partner and I spent a long weekend at Little Cottage with our dog and we had the most amazing time in beautiful and peaceful surroundings. Stephen was extremely helpful and made us feel so welcome. He supplied us with valuable information and advice about the New Forest, where to go and where to eat and find vegan food. Soya milk and other treats in the fridge, local hand-made treats for Briany... we were blown away! Stephen's customer service is second to none. Little Cottage is so cosy and all equipped with everything you need. It was so lovely to come back to such comfort after our winter walks in the forest. A home from home. And much more comfortable than our home! Would deserve 6 stars! Highly recommended.
We were charmed by Little Cottage, which is as near perfection as one could wish for in a holiday cottage. True, we were blessed with a week of glorious early Autumn weather, but even had it rained we would have enjoyed the peace and quiet of the cottage.Full marks to Stephen for making Little Cottage a veritable home from home. The two local pubs, The Plough and the Hare and Hounds were very welcoming and dog friendly and served nice meals. As for walks, we were spoilt for choice, but particularly enjoyed the woods at Wilverley,just a short drive away. We recommend Little Cottage unreservedly. Alan and Judy Kaye and Rosie
My husband and I had a lovely 3 night break at Little Cottage. We came planning to have some lovely walks with our dog, rest and relax and we did just that in a lovely cottage. Some very nice surprises/ nice touches in the cottage which were greatly appreciated (thank you Stephen). We found the location fantastic for dog walks! Would come back again!
We were lucky enough to spend a week at Little Cottage early in November 2015 along with our fifteen month old son. The property itself is very comfortable and exceptionally well appointed - we couldn't have wanted for anything, including a set of supplies for Saturday's breakfast to get us going: what a lovely surprise! Our host, Stephen, couldn't have helped us more, but wasn't intrusive in any way. After a thorough tour of the cottage's facilities on arrival, all other interaction was conducted via e-mail, where he was kind enough to pick up on our interest in visiting local markets and sent us a detailed report on which ones were on where and when. When we were struggling to find a local play area for our son he also came up trumps. The cottage itself is minutes from the open forest but also well located for local pubs, restaurants (The Mill at Gordleton was fabulous), and - of course - the coast. I arrived in Little Cottage very stressed from work, and left completely relaxed with a smile on my face. I couldn't recommend it more highly and we wouldn't hesitate to return. Matt, Bev and Tommy
We had a wonderful week at Little Cottage. Stephen was an excellent host and went out of his way to be helpful about the New Forest locality including restaurants pubs, and tourist sites. Little Cottage is, without a doubt, a lovely place to stay with facilities all of a very high standard. We would certainly very much like to return in the future. Ron and Diane Allan
My wife and myself must congratulate Stephen for his efforts to make our stay at his Little Cottage just delightful ,Every detail was thought out ,well equipped kitchen bedding towels and a wealth of local information,plus the most fantastic October weather We had wonderful walks in the forest with the dog and some fantastic pub meals ,must recommend the Hare and Hounds thy went out of there way to accommodate us on a very busy Sunday lunch time Again thank you Stephen, and looking forward to our next visit.
We had a fantastic week in Little Cottage.We wanted something special for our anniversary and we certainly found it here.The cottage was the cleanest cottage we had ever stayed in,and so comfortable.Stephen the owner was so helpful and has thought of everything in this cottage.The garden was super for our dog. Every night we slept so well it was so peaceful. Can't wait to go back next year.
Lovely, dog friendly cottage. Owner Stephen very helpful and very informative about places to go and visit. Some nice touches in the cottage including food items for breakfast etc and a bag of treats for our dog....much appreciated.
After many leisure visits to the New Forest over the years, Little Cottage is by far the best accommodation we have experienced - and by some distance! We absolutely endorse all the favourable comments and reviews we have read.
This was our first visit and we have a brilliant time on holiday at Little Cottage. Stephen could not have made us and our dog more welcome. The cottage was fantastic, very well equipped and dog friendly as well as being in a brilliant location. We will definitely be booking again
Little cottage was the perfect cottage in the New Forest and our host most helpfull. A really nice and relaxing holiday. Lots to do in the area, but relaxing at the cottage was also very nice. Love the luxury in the cottage and also the lovely garden.
Had a wonderful weeks holiday at Little Cottage, an excellent choice, very well managed by the owner, recommended to anyone who wants comfort and quality
Superb home from home, Stephen has thought of everything you could possibly need, even down to treats for Lola our little poodle. Top quality and highly recommended - we will be back!
Another stay in this lovely cottage. Nothing else needed but clothes as first Mornings breakfast supplied by Stephen & an excellent farm / local shop for remaining Weeks food. Information galore if you want to eat out but all equipment supplied to cook in cottage. Comfortable seating in the garden if like us you had sunny days to be able to eat outside whilst listening to the birds. Our elderly dog Prince is made very welcome by the owner so Prince now thinks Little Cottage is his 2nd home !
Our first visit , Stephen welcomed us and gave us a very interesting tour of this lovely cottage, the vases of roses , strawberries fresh bread and other produce to tide us over were very welcome indeed,we had a lovely week there ,and would highly recommend it , we hope we shall return in the near future
we find the little cottage to be outstanding and excellent value. this was our second visit to the Little Cottage, and we have booked for next year, I think that speaks for it's self
This was our third visit to Little Cottage and it was just as delightful as it has previously been. Stephen has continued to add even more luxury (if my own home was half as well appointed I would be in heaven!) and we particularly enjoyed the espresso machine and heated blankets! Despite the wild weather, the wonderful thatch kept us sheltered and comfortable and we even managed to find new places to run with the dog. If you are thinking of staying in the New Forest, you could not want for more.
This was our second visit to the cottage as we loved it so much last time. Everything about it is perfect. It has the charm of an old cottage with all the modern luxuries you could wish for and more! Stephen has thought of everything and ensures your stay from beginning to end is perfect. To sum it up, peaceful, charming, luxurious, unique, picturesque, cosy, and with access to so many beautiful walks and places to visit. Thank you Stephen for another wonderful stay, see you next time :)
We had a wonderful week. All the information you could ever need about the area was to hand - Dogs walks, dog friendly pubs, local shops etc etc. The cottage is a true gem and truly exceptional - you will want for nothing! Stephen even provided a welcome package to sample for goods from local shops, including lovely New Forest ice cream!
Excellent,well equipped cottage with easy access to New Forest and Hampshire coast.Very well supported by Stephen with local information and recommendations. Good local pubs. Can thoroughly recommend and will be going again.
â€œA very well equipped cottage with extremely well organised information available for guests use. Food at local pub The Plough was good value, but avoid Vetiver at Chewton Glen, average food
Without a doubt this is the most comfortable cottage we have stayed in. My daughter and her partner stayed for the weekend and we took the cottage over for the midweek. It is so well appointed, everything has been thought of. Stephen is very welcoming. Charlotte took their dogs and Stephen provided treats and a dog toy for them. Had a lovely day at Bucklers Hard. Exbury Gardens also recommended. Very good meals at 'The Plough' and 'Hare and Hounds'. We all enjoyed our stay here - Steve
We have had the most super week Stephen staying in your most delightful Little Cottage, warm, cosy and comfortable, and you have thought of everything, we wanted for nothing, it really was home fro home. Superb walks Winston, ( our border collie) was in his element!!. Excellent pubs H
This is our first visit to Little cottage and we found it lovely in a wonderful location: we had excellent weather and walked our socks off!!!! What more can we ask? Thank you
Pure serendipity! We have been visting cottages for 14 years; unequivocally this is the best. Thank you Stephen, for your attention to detail, and more imortantly your WELCOME, bacon, eggs etc., and nothing is too much trouble - very much appreciated. We are really looking forward to Little Cottage next May it is idyllic.
This is our second visit to Little Cottage and it has been wonderful. We have now visited in autumn and summer and the welcome from Stephen was equally warm! Thank you. The cottage was warm and cosy last October and beautifully cool in July. A fantastic place to stay, which we will continue to recommend. We had some lovely meals this week and would advise anyone to try 'La Perle' or 'Verveine' in Milford on Sea. 'The Mill at Gordleton' is also a lovely setting and the meal was good but the two in Milford were much more impressive. Thanks again Stephen for a great week (especially your help with our 'little guy'). Little Cottage is one of our favourite places in the world and Luka most certainly agrees too.
I can only endorse all the good things said about this cottage - it is fabulous. This is our second visit to the cottage and before we left we have booked it again for next year - need I say more. . If you like walking some great walks described in the new book of 30 walks in the New Forest, and if you like fish and chips try the shop on the green @ Milford on Sea. If you are looking for a cottage for two in the New Forest look no further and if you can get booked you will not be disappointed
"Little Cottage" hat 5 Sterne, doch es verdient einen sechsten - und der gebuehrt Stephen, dem perfekten Vermieter, dem kein Aufwand zu gross und keine Frage zuviel ist. Wir haben schon verschiedene Ferienhaeuser in Europa gebucht, ober nur wenige davon erreichen der Standard von "Little Cottage". Dafuer vielen Dank, Stephen! Die grandiose Landschaft, das milde Wetter, und das schlafende Pferd unmittelbar am Eingang der Lloyds Bank in Brockenhurst - das sind nur einige von zahlreichen Eindruecken, die lebendig werden. Auch wir wollen wiederkommen.
Back again and once again Little Cottage has extended our summer! Lovely cottage, settled into its own after a year - lovely spot
I couldn't believe we could stay in such splendour as Little Cottage with our dog. This cottage is exceptional & hand over from Stephen the owner was detailed / informative so we did not spend first few days trying to find things. My one regret is this cottage is so popular we would be unable to book odd weekends at short notice.
