    Just what we needed , peaceful days and nights the only cobwebs were the ones that flew away from our minds as we totally relaxed! best bird table and viewing them from the windows was more like a hide plus home for the long weekend . Missing it already Caroline and Bernard Nov 2016

    Unfortunately we had to cut our stay short as, whilst the location was perfect, cleanliness was a real issue. Cobwebs galore that looked like they had been there a very long while. The previous occupiers food in the sink!! carpets that didn't look like they'd been hoovered for a very long time, mouldy shower and hairs! And if there is tea, sugar etc in cupboard then make sure it is not out of date/mouldy. Such a shame as my daughter and I were so looking forward to our stay. If only the pics were true to form. Having said these things, it really wouldn't take much to make this a real gem of a holiday get away. Unfortunately for me, the unclean/fusty/dusty environment immediately affected my lungs which are recovering after a serious bout of pneumonia at the beginning of the year so we had to leave after the first night. Maybe I was just unlucky and The Sett has been beautifully presented for other visitors..... Such a shame.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner: We were disappointed to read your comments following your resent stay at The Sett. The property is thoroughly cleaned prior to each guests stay and is never filthy. There maybe a few cobwebs now and then but that is typical of a property set in such a rural environment. The description of the property is very accurate and the photos are a good illustration of The Sett. It is a shame that you didn't want to stay. If there were issues that affected you so much it would only have been fair to let us know ASAP so we would have had the opportunity to rectify something that was not to your satisfaction.

    Sett is a really lovely little 'cabin' style getaway. Owners are friendly and there is a pub next door which serves great food. Located really close to Burley, which has gift shops , tea rooms and pubs. I would recommend any visitors who are older to check in before booking as getting to the bed rooms requires you to climb a ladder style stairs , I'm not sure older people could do this. Also in the living room, there are two single chairs (leather) to watch telly. But apart from This it's perfect for a couple who wanted to come & take the Opportunity to explore New Forest. Good value for money. Bathroom really nice & overall, a lovely stay.

    Welcoming hosts, comfortable accommodation and great location for exploring the New Forest, especially for walkers. Local wildlife can be observed from the accommodation; during a four night stay I was able to watch varied birdlife and foxes, badger & deer.

    The welcome was good. Everything in the house is not as clean as we wish. But at the dusk we enjoyed to have seen several animals. The environment is beautiful. We have made some longer walks from the books of the owner. Thanks. But for us a week is long enough. If we would like to go at the New Forest again, it wil be in another place.

    loads of cobwebs, loads of spiders, loads of dead flies , shelves ,cupboards seemed to have a layer of grease on them chairs really need renewed bedrom roof is lower than you think wouldnt want to try using the fire exit at night a wifi link from the main property would of been good oven could do with an upgrade expect the bedroom to be hot and sweaty even with all windows open so good things it wasnt all horrible pub 5 mins stroll great location 200m from the dedicated cycle routes pretty quiet location basic place to sit outside but not so private would i stay again? probably not something a little bigger with more things for comfort after a hard cycling would be good

    Situated in the northern part of the National Park which is less commercial than the southern part & this suited me just fine. Surrounded by undisturbed, beautiful countryside with plenty of walking or cycling routes.
