    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: Administrator

    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.

    A very warm welcome from the caretakers, who are friendly and approachable. Perfect location away from it all, peacefull, beautiful and a whole array of wildlife just outside the door. Plenty to explore close by and further afield. It's a the perfect get away for anyone who wants to get closer to nature and enjoys a good walk. Both ourselves and our dog loved the whole experience. The cottage has all the basics you need at the end of a long day out and about, just as expected for a self-catering stay. Thank you.

    This location was perfect for us, as we like seclusion and beautiful surroundings. The cottage is basic but comfortable, with sufficient heating to keep us warm in January. We loved that you step out of the cottage straight into the open forest - perfect when you have dogs! The caretaker was very friendly and helpful. All in all a very nice experience - we will definitely go back.

    Ideal location all year round. It look a little time to find the location on the 1st visit, but no subsequent problems finding the lodge. Walks short and long not too far away from the lodge. The pub is located within 3 minutes walk - very good beer and food - good value for money. Would stay at the lodge again.
