    Location and style of cottage is wonderful and really scores at least 15 out of 10 , owners and caretaker are kind and helpful. Cottage need a serious up-date, needs to be better equipped there is not even a cupboard to put food in. Bed was fine but sofas are really uncomfortable and old. Carpet in lounge was threadbare and dirty. Whole place needs a really deep clean. Shower and shower room need particular attention as hygiene was a bit worrying. It was difficult to get wet in the actual shower. Despite all the above we loved it there and had a wonderful holiday and would go back in an instant. Perhaps because of the above the rent should be reduced as it is quite expensive for the poor standard. Of course its position in the New Forest with the peace , quiet, and wildlife is why cottage is popular. The lovely owners seem totally unaware of what is expected or needed in a holiday home and seemed grateful for my input as I did make them aware of shortcomings of their holiday home, not sure they really understood as of course we do not all have the same standards.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your constructive criticism. We do indeed have a lot of walkers staying and dogs with the resultant mud etc. and we will get the carpet steam cleaned or even replace it. The sofas are a couple of years old, so somewhat surprised at your comments on these but I will look at them, we have not had any previous complaints. As far as storage, most people use the welsh dresser. The shower cubicle was cleaned and has an electric shower - what sometimes happens is that people set it on the lower setting on full hot, whilst it makes sense for it to be on the maximum setting with half cold which then doubles the pressure. I have asked the electrician to put a booster pump in to simplify the system so others don't make the same mistake. We feel we tried to do our best for you and even going out to buy you some coasters that you wanted.

    Perfect setting, Jane was lovely, but the cleanliness needs to be addresses urgently as the first feature that strikes you as you enter the property, a carpet is threadbare and dirty, a few hours and some hot soapy water to give the place a really good clean and it could be lovely, we did notice some of these issues had been raised by other visitors before in the visitors book, but as far nothing had been done about it.

    The directions were clear to get to the cottage, and on arrival we were greeted by Jane and her lovely dog. Jane showed us where the cottage was, over a bridge with a beautiful stream and past some bamboo; there stood this gorgeous little cottage with an incredible view. The cottage itself was incredibly sweet, very traditional. There's a small decking area outside the back of the cottage, which I will imagine would be perfect in Summer, which leads straight into the forest itself. The walk was incredible, with spectacular views and very kind wild ponies! As we visited in Winter, the heating did have to be kept on most of the time but that is expected. Facilities were great, there was everything that we needed to keep to cottage in shape and also enough room for our very lively husky. A lovely pub is about a 10 minute walk on the main track, which there will be many ponies, donkeys and even a pig to greet you! We would love to visit here again, as it really is a unique place. Jane was incredibly helpful in letting us know where everything was, and nothing was ever too much trouble for her. Would absolutely visit again!

    Perfect! We spent a fantastic Christmas at the cottage, so warm and cosy. We were sad to go home. Our dog was in his element having the forest as his back garden! The location is amazing and the cottage is so cute and homely. We enjoyed every minute of our stay and have already booked up again to stay in the summer.

    We love this part of the New Forest, the hidden little cabin was perfect. Everything we needed and cosy. We had horses and pigs visit the back of the cabin an amazing experience we will definitely be doing again.

    A superb week in an idyllic location. Lots of animals (deer, ponies, cows and pigs not forgetting the donkey), very few people and marvellous countryside.

    We were led to believe you could step out into the new forrest. The land was boggy. There was stagnant water by the cottage. I went home with mosque to bites. The barbeque had never been cleaned. The outside furniture was broken and rotten. We left early.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner. Sorry to hear of your complaints and that you didn't enjoy your stay. The forest is a National Park and the Authorities are looking to increase the wetlands for future generations. The forest can be boggy in places, but is an area of natural beauty and is why people are encouraged to stick to the gravel tracks. At certain times of the year midges are prevalent, but at sunset only and not through the day. The property is advertised as being rural and within the New Forest National Park, which is it's draw to many. As for the Barbeque, it is indeed cleaned, but it would appear not as well as you would expect, my apologies.The furniture is part of the terrace's charm and rustic, they are not rotten. Again I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay.
