    Drovers way offers fantastic views of the new forest. It is a charming, well equiped cottage and the hosts have the perfect balance of being available if you need advice and letting you get on with your holiday in peace and quiet. I was worried that being an annex it would feel like we were intuding, but nothing could be further from the reality. We enjoyed a glorious 3 days in May and have already booked 7 days in July. I can't wait to go back to what I know feel like is my country home.

    Lovely warm and cosy cottage with walks from the front door in all directions. Not overlooked and nice view from the large glass lounge windows. Owners next door if required but in no way intrusive. Plenty of places nearby to explore. Would recommend to family and friends.

    A beautiful cottage in a very peaceful location, superbly equipped and spotlessly clean. Our dog thoroughly enjoyed her holiday here.

    Drovers Way is idyllic. The only possible downside is when rainfall is especially heavy, access via the ford can be difficult or even impassible; the alternative is to use the rough unmetalled roadway which is not particularly vehicle-friendly. However, that said, the location is in the New Forest and motorway conditions cannot be expected. The pros of Drovers Way far outweigh the only con we could find, and we look forward to going to Drovers Way again. The area is a delight with many places to visit and experience.

    Yet another amazing holiday in a beautiful location. Everything was perfect - the surroundings, the chalet, the hosts Ulli and Tony. A location that you can truly relax in, everywhere is so peaceful. This time our added bonus was the deer that were grazing on the paddock where we used to see Sunni (Ulli's horse). We feel extremely lucky to have found Drovers Way. We hadn't had a holiday for 20 years because we never found the 'right' location and we have now found it. Can't recommend highly enough and Ulli and Tony are wonderful hosts.

    A lovely, well equipped cottage run by two lovely people. I've never stayed anywhere where the service, friendliness and generosity of the owners has been to the standard shown by Tony and Ulli. The cottage is comfortable and in a wonderfully quiet setting. The added touches such as the home grown veggies, wine and home made jam were much appreciated and enjoyed. We enjoyed watching the variety of birds on the feeders regularly filled by Tony. Setting is great for long walks or cycling or a number of other attractions are available locally by car. Would definitely recommend. Many thanks to Tony and Ulli.

    Absolutely nothing wrong with the cottage, location or hosts, all brilliant but most suited to ramblers and those visiting NT properties, or other activities so being wheelchair restricted limited our venues so basically we've done all we could do in the area hence unlikely to return. If we ever did return then Drovers Way would be top of our list
