The New Forest â the country's smallest National Park â is comprised of 150 square miles of magnificent woodland and heather covered heathland dotted with picturesque villages. The area is famous for its unusual wildlife such as herds of wild ponies, cattle and deer, and a great many species of birds.

This was the most peaceful lovely little cottage ever. Right in the middle of forest, ponies at the gate, we had a tremendous time and so did our dogs. Really made welcome by Steve & Judy who own the cottage. Wonderful and so wish I lived there period.
Gorgeous, cosy,comfy and really welcoming and helpful.

Such a shame we managed to book up in November time, and it turned out to be when the big freeze (Feb) was happening. Despite this, the place was beautiful, warm, clean and welcoming and the hosts so friendly and helpful( esp.when my partners motorbike got stuck in the unexpected snow!). Really gorgeous clean, cosy place with some surprise welcome provisions. Loads to do. Just take a satnav and go when the weather's a little less treacherous!
If I say it was fab you will all book it and we will never get a

This place is exactly as advertised. Right in the heart of the New Forest but with a lovely pub that serves excellant food only 10 minutes walk away.
Really good location for visiting the surrounding villages and the coast.
We had 2 small dogs with us and they loved it too.
Will definitely be booking again for next year.
Lovely little hideaway

arrived early but no problem owner greeted us and told us whats what and where it is. they also supplied a bottle of wine, milk, etc etc and brought us a drink when we went to the local pub.
The home was great and the location was very peaceful. The amenities where ok but could do with a cooker and oven than just the rings. Even our dogs had bowls supplied for them
This was the first of many visits we will be making. Both local pubs can be got to by walking. Best trying the Red Shoot its open allday all year round. Seeing the Horses, Cows and Pigs walking about free was really nice. Our only downside was the rain but it was November
