    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.

    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.
