“A brilliant holiday in a beautiful cottage”
Reviewed 17 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We have just got back from a wonderful stay at Willow Cottage. The cottage is well located, in a beautiful part of the country. The cottage was well furnished, clean and tidy, with lots of little extras such as dishwasher tablets and sandwich bags which made our stay very comfortable. The garden is beautiful and my little boy loved running around and exploring in it. We enjoyed a walk each morning to the old mill where we fed the swans. The locals are very friendly and helpful. We look forward to coming back again! Would recommend to anyone.

“Perfect cottage near lovely countryside”
Reviewed 25 May 2016 for a stay in January 2015

This picture book cottage is well-equipped for a cosy stay. We celebrated my eldest son's 30th birthday here and enjoyed cooking lavish meals, eating together around the large dining table and warming ourselves at the log fire. The bedrooms and bathrooms were spotless and the whole cottage is decorated with charm and care. There are plenty of country walks in the vicinity and the nearby town of Fordingbridge has all the shops you need, including an excellent butcher's. We should love to return in the summer to enjoy more of this beautiful area. The owner was particularly helpful in giving us extra information before our arrival.

“The perfect cottage for a stay in the New Forest”
Reviewed 30 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Willow Cottage has it all, clean, with plenty of room to move or relax in a lovely location.
We found it was not missing anything we needed. Surrounding areas are delightful. We recommend it highly.
Fordingbridge for shopping is close by.

“lovely rural retreat”

A really lovely holiday cottage, tasteful decor and lovely 'rural chic'. Makes a great change from some of the tatty, chintzy outdated places I have stayed in! It was a comfortable convenient stay for myself and a friend whilst I was working in the local area. Handy for Fordingbridge and Ringwood which have all amenities you need, we also whizzed down to Bournemouth in less than half an hour for an evening meal. Would return.

We enjoyed a fabulous long weekend at this cottage which is beautifully equipped and generously sized.
Very clean, warm and welcoming with a wonderful garden to sit and enjoy the tranquil setting - listening to the birds or star gazing.
The owners have thought of everything to make your stay just perfect from homely touches to beds you'll never want to leave.
It has everything you need for a perfectly relaxing stay - HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
