    If you love the great outdoors and simply want to escape, then this is definitely the perfectly located let. The close connection to nature is just wonderful with a suite of different habitats surrounding the cottage in this stunningly beautiful area. We are a group of four lepidopterists who thoroughly enjoy staying at The Cottage which is both comfortable and well appointed for such a secluded rural retreat. The fact there is an outdoor heated swimming pool adjacent to the let is the icing on the cake.

    Third time here and love it. You don't come to this cottage expecting the lap of luxury as it's essentially a wooden cabin, but the location is perfect - quiet, wildlife and great views. There is wifi but it didn't work when we were there, but it made it the perfect opportunity to get away from technology. We'll be back again.

    Location outstanding, on the edge of the moorland, right in the forest. The accommodation was a very basic cabin. The bedroom being of good order, with a comfortable bed, however the living area felt tired and worn. The carpet was very threadbare. The fridge door handle was broken and the kettle lid release did not work (requiring the use of a kitchen utensil to open it). The use of the swimming pool was great especially as we were there for the hottest week of the year.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Sorry to see that you weren't totally happy with the accommodation. On the fridge and Kettle issue, we do need guests to advise us, otherwise it is difficult for us to be aware of such issues. I would have welcomed your comments at the time and would have rectified the problem. The carpet is a little threadbare and is rather like an old friend. We did discuss this with our agent earlier in the year and are aiming to replace this in the autumn. Glad the pool was a success, you must have been the envy of many.

    The setting for this novel lodge was perfect. We were able to cycle from the house on close by cycle tracks one way and to the farm shop the other way on an almost vehicle free track. The lodge, although close to the owner's house is hidden in it's own area overlooking the open forest. The lodge was equipped with everything you need, even a piano (I am a music teacher!). We liked the small paved terrace very much - you can sit on the benches and watch the sunset or just look out to the ponies, ducks, birds and the little white dog who comes to visit in the evenings. Noting a previous comment about the threadbare rug (it was a little worn, no more) in the main room, we thought it added lots of charm and was, once, obviously a good quality rug. Both the owner and caretaker are very friendly and made us very welcome.

    A beautiful, idyllic location. As previous reviews highlight there are issues with cleanliness eg cobwebs and dust in lamps and shower room, shredded carpet. The double bed is comfortable but the sofa bed isn't. However, we thoroughly enjoyed its location right in the New Forest along a bumpy track, so in all honesty you don't expect pristine accommodation - its too close to nature! Our dog loved it too. The care taker and owners were very friendly and happy to help. A stunning country pub just 10 mins walk, a beautiful brook and miles of countryside literally on your doorstep.
