    We stayed here for a birthday weekend with our two dogs. Lydia welcomed us and she was lovely and helpful. She made us feel at home straight away! Bailey and Spencer were chuffed that there was a packet of dog treats waiting for them upon arrival! We were also chuffed that there was a Victoria sponge cake waiting for us too! We had a lovely weekend exploring the New Forest! Highly recommend staying at The Haven!

    had a lovely wk at the havens its spotless has everything in it you could want, sky sports was a big hit with the hubby didnt think i would get him out! the owners are fab very friendly and helpfull but didnt intrude on our time there , apart from bringing me a birthday cake and i certainly didnt complain about that. was a bit concerned at first that the garden was shared but needent have worried they were more than happy to put up with a very nosey dog who requires belly rubs on demand!! lovely enclosed dog park up the road and woods and park a little further were a big hit with murphy so all in all a great time was had by all 3 of us. would def reccomend

    Very nice comfortable accommodation, situated very central for lots of the local places to visit eg the new forest, Salisbury etc. The landlords were lovely and couldn't do enough for us. Would thoroughly recommend this property.

    I visited The Haven on my own to have some time for myself. As the flat was integral to the main house, I did not feel lonely, and the owners were really friendly and welcoming. St Leonard's is full of detached houses and bungalows and was ideal for evening walks as there was a park nearby and the area felt very safe.Everywhere I visited in Hampshire and Dorset, people were incredibly friendly and helpful. Ringwood , two miles away, was charming and there were many different types of shops and coffee shops. There are excellent bus services to the coast from Ringwood. It was only a five minute walk to a garage/ supermarket on the A 31 where all provisions for a family were available. It was just five minutes in the car to a beautiful country park. I would have no hesitation in returning to the Haven again, and relaxing in the lovely garden which surrounds he flat.

    A very relaxing week. Lydia and John are friendly and helpful, but not intrusive. The property is very handily placed for both the New Forest and the Dorset Coast.

    We had a very enjoyable time in The Haven with our two dogs. We would have preferred that the garden area of annex was enclosed for safety with dogs or even children. There is a safe enclosed area just down the road from The Haven where the dogs can run freely and a enclosed playground for children. Made very welcomed and even had some cake, milk for us and treats for the dogs left in the kitchen which was very nice. Ideally situated for the New Forest, Parks and Coast, perfect for exploring and walking. We had fantastic weather in the week we stayed! The property was very clean and well laid out, bed comfortable and we even had Sky tv. Owners live next door and would have been available if necessary but do not intrude on your privacy.
