We had such a wonderful week. We were warmly welcomed by the owner, Carol. Not only this but we arrived in the dark and rain and Carol was so kind in helping us carry all our bags in. Summer Haven was immaculate with a very comfortable layout and every convenience you could wish for. The conservatory was light, bright and toasty warm. It meant you could put your feet up/have a snooze and feel as though you were outside, which was lovely with there being a few April showers. It was also nice to be able to walk around and explore the large garden. Thank you so very much, we hope to be back next year.
This is a fabulous property. Lots of space and everything you could need. Would return.

A great house - great people - a fantastic first visit to the UK Fam. Backx - Belgium
We had a lovely week’s stay at Summer Haven in August 2018. The standard of accommodation and furnishings was excellent and the owners were very friendly and helpful. Our children loved the huge garden and we had great fun playing games on the tennis court. We would definitely come back again!
We had a very enjoyable holiday and were blessed with lovely weather for most of the stay. The New Forest is a wonderful location, with countryside and coast equally accessible. The owners of our property were extremely welcoming, friendly and helpful and we enjoyed some lovely walks and cycle rides as well as swims and sandcastle building on the beaches!

Yes, great cottage ideal for 3 couples and a baby. Would definitely recommend!
Yes really enjoyed our stay and very happy to recommend to friends and family.
Very enjoyable stay (apart from the weather!). Host family very helpful without being intrusive. Property in excellent condition.
The property is very well located for visiting Beaulieu Motor Museum, Bucklers Hard, Hurst Castle, New forest and the south coast. It is spotlessly clean, modern & stylish. We particularly enjoyed sitting in the conservatory overlooking the gardens. It was spacious for a family of six. The owners are very friendly and welcoming. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to others.
We were welcomed by Carol and Martin, who showed us around and kindly left some milk and a sponge cake. Everywhere was in excellent condition and the quality of beds, bedding and towels were first class too. The garden around was well tended and a joy to look out onto, together with pretty flowers in hanging baskets and pots around the patio area for us to also enjoy. They certainly made us very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. It was really nice to have clean kitchen equipment to use and not bashed about pots and pans etc. Obviously they have put a great deal of thought into this property and made it very comfortable indeed. I would only make a couple of points which may be helpful. 1: It would be useful if they could leave a list of phone numbers and addresses of the Doctor, Hospitals, pharmacies, Dentists, nearby in case anyone should need these. 2: Although there is underfloor heating on the ground floor, it could be useful if there was another movable electric heater, i.e. convector or fan heater, as when the evenings suddenly become cool, it takes a while for the underfloor heating to come up to a higher heat, Luckily there is no problem upstairs as there are radiators which you can adjust accordingly. We had a really lovely week and the property is ideally positioned as we thought, for getting around the beautiful areas of the New Forest. We also thank your staff for their friendly, efficient help when booking and we shall certainly hope to use your company again.
We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Summer Haven. We would like to thank you for pointing out a couple of issues, which we are pleased to inform you have now been rectified. The information folder now includes local fliers from Southern Health regarding the Minor Injuries Unit and the Hampshire Dental Helpline number for emergency treatment. The owners have also now supplied a convector fan heater.

We had a lovely last minute bank holiday break in this lovely cottage. The owners made us feel so welcome. We went on a long walk in the forest and on the beach at Highcliffe and crabbing at Mudeford Quay. Lucy loved playing with the dogs!
We had a wonderful two weeks at Summer Haven. The house is fantastic and has absolutely everything we could possibly need. Thank you Martin & Carol for the kindness & friendliness and the great suggestions for places to visit in the area. The kids had a brilliant time in the beautiful garden. We loved the area and the house....we will be back! P.S The dogs are wonderful!!!
We had a fantastic holiday at Summer Haven. The owners Carol and Martin could not have been more welcoming. The finish and standard of fixtures and fittings were at an exceptional standard and very comfortable. We only wished we could have stayed longer. Will definitely be back next year if they will have us.
Thank you for a wonderful week in your beautiful "Summer Haven", it was everything we would have hoped for. So much to see and do in the area and great suggestions from Carol & Martin, no matter what the weather! The kids have had the best time and apparantly want to come back 10 more times!! Thanks again.
