    Quality always shows and this property has quality. However the owners are attached and voices and other sounds could be heard. The living room overlooks the owners driveway. This was not a major problem but we would have preferred more privacy. Very quiet area with lots of bird sounds. A great location for exploring New Forest. The property has everything you need except a coffee maker of any type. Ok if you’re a tea drinker 😏.

    Laurel cottage is a well presented and spotlessly clean holiday cottage in The new forest. The owners provided pretty much everything we could've needed , including deck chairs and a barbecue, for which they even provided a basket of charcoal briquettes. The welcome basket of goodies they left for us was also a nice touch, and much appreciated. We met the owners, Robert and Caroline on the first day of our stay, and they were very friendly and welcoming towards us and we had a long chat with them. I mentioned that pretty much everything was provided, but one small suggestion would be some kind of a fan in the bedroom. We were lucky enough to have a good week weather wise, but the heat made sleeping difficult and we missed the fan that we have in our bedroom at home. All in all we had an enjoyable week, and I would recommend Laurel cottage, although personally we will not be returning as the one drawback we found was that Laurel cottage is essentially an annex built onto the owners home and the windows looked out directly onto their driveway and garden. We prefer a bit more seclusion when we hire a cottage, although we did have our own fenced patio area.

    Laurel cottage is furnished to a very high standard. It has a private, sunny garden area. It is situated in a very quiet upmarket residential area on the edge of the village. Newsagent and general store in village We had a very comfortable stay. Difficult to fault without nit-picking.

    The cottage and situation were perfect. It was spotlessly clean and very well equipped. We had wonderful weather, so enjoyed the courtyard. We enjoy walking and were pleased to be able to walk up the lane to the woodland and on to the New Forest. The cottage was well placed to visit the coast and Beaulieu, Buckler's Hard and Exbury gardens.

    We had a very friendly reception from the owner on site and the cottage was well equipped, comfortable and spotlessly clean. Location made visiting places in the area very easy, especially using trains from the nearby station.

    Laurel Cottage is a beautifully presented comfortable and homely place to stay while enjoying the area around the New Forest and the coast. Only short drives are needed to access places such as Christchurch, Lymington, Milford-on Sea, Barton-on Sea and the walks along the cliff top there are most enjoyable. We have just returned from a second stay at Laurel Cottage and hope to return soon.
