Shop, pub and restaurant 500 yards.

    Excellent location, walking distant from a pub that also serves food. Also 10mins drive from Ringwood. Forest walks right on your doorstep. Quiet cottage with fantastic views from window of birds and other wildlife. Friendly host. Ideal for a stay for 2 in the heart of the forest.

    Although it appears small it is fine and you do get used to the stairs . It was warm and there was plenty of instant hot water. The location for me was excellent and was great for exploring the New Forest. Nowhere was more than 40 minuets away. The view of the forest from the kitchen and bathroom was lovely . There are numerous walks and cycle rides straight from the door . The Red Shoot Inn is a few minuets away but we thought the High Corner Inn was better.

    Would really recommended this cottage if you are looking for a beautiful location within the New Forest. Very close to Lyndhurst, Beaulieu Motor Museum and Lymington and surrounding areas. Lots of superb pubs in the area too. Owner is also very nice and helpful. Please note that the stairs are very steep and not suitable for people with mobility problems.

    A small cottage but in one of the loveliest settings you could imagine. Seeing all the birds in the garden and the visit of the foxes and badgers in the evening is really nice. The location also makes this an ideal spot for walking in the forest.

    Beautiful area to stay, cottage very cosy and had everything we could need. Polite and welcoming owner who greeted us and showed us around. We had a wonderful stay and would certainly go again. Only issue for us was the tub chairs they were quite uncomfortable so we couldn't really relax and enjoy the peace and quiet. The view in the garden was spectacular and better than any t.v and we were privileged to see deer, foxes, squirrels and badgers everyday. The Red Shoot pub 5 mins walk was great too with fab food and a warm welcome. We went on wonderful walks, saw baby ponies and donkeys and just loved the freedom and relaxation.
