Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. A return visit. so comfortable and everything you need.
Fantastic stay. Chris and Claudia went above and beyond making us feel welcome. We will be back
The cottage is lovely and in an idyllic setting with horses at the garden gate. Very good walks and pubs from cottage door. Hosts were very friendly and helpful. Cottage is very comfy, warm and well appointed. Loved the New Forest, hope to return again.
Perfect for 2 people plus dog owners very helpful and friendly.
A wonderful stay at Oakview - a lovely, comfortable and well-appointed cottage with amazing views over the green and direct access to breathtaking forest walks beyond. Excellent hosts, full of local knowledge - a great welcome basket on arrival, fruit from the garden on departure, and tasty treats for our dog too!
It's such a lovely place and in a perfect location for us and the dog.
We had one of the best self catering holidays ever in Oakview at Wood Green. The lodge was superb, the owners gave us a warm welcome and were very helpful. Our two dogs were welcomed too - nice touch to have a jar of dog biscuits - and for walks, this location was marvellous. We enjoyed seeing the ponies & cattle on the green and the walk to & from the well stocked community shop was delightful. We enjoyed a good meal at The Horse & Groom one evening. Good location to reach Ringwood and other New Forest locations. We will book again for next year.
And wonderful hosts.
Very nice cottage. Every thing that you need is there. The view is magnificient with all the wild animals every day. The host and hostess are realy friendly , people with stories to tell and tips to give. So, we had a lovely stay and we commanded it to everybody.
The cottage was lovely. The location was wonderful, situated in a village with a fabulous village shop and pub. The direct forest access means we could watch the first animals as they wondered about and we didn't need to use the car to get to great walks.
This is our second stay at Oakview in 6 months and we will definitely be coming back again soon. Chris and Claudia are the perfect hosts who make you feel so welcome. See you again soon
Sitting, dining, sleeping and kitchen area are all one big space in this very cozy garden lodge. That agreeable impression of spaciousness and light is enhanced by three large windows, looking into the garden and further over the Common, a large lawn where the New Forest cattle comes and goes. From the garden and also through the dinner table window, you look even further onto the green, rolling hills and the Beamore House. Our lodge was perfectly located in the scenic, hillier northern part of the New Forest. In fact, you can start two smashing National Park Authority featured walks from your lodge (NFNPA walks 7 and 8). A note for those who really want to relax: as the Common is west-oriented, you will watch the sun set in the old oak tree and across the hills. After that: no street lights, no remote highway noise, just you and another starry night. To say that we had one of our most relaxing stays ever down there at Oakview.
Thank you so much.We have loved staying at Oakview. It is the most beautiful retreat. Decorated beautifully and set within stunning scenery. We will definitely be back. Thank you.
Oakview is lovely and the walks, village, and wildlife. We will be back. It is well equipped , cosy. Could live here no problem. And the owners are great.
