Reviewed 6 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Stayed in the cottage in middle March . The cottage is big , very well equipped, large rooms and was perfect for hosting a special 60th Birthday party ,of 20 people!!
Joaanna was absolutely brilliant with any questions we had and help we needed like late checkout . The surroundings were really nice with the stream at the back . Really enjoyed time here - we have already decided we are going to hire this and next door cottages for big parties in the future. Would recommend. Thank you Joaanna

“A beautiful cottage in a wonderful part of the New Forest”
Reviewed 18 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

I stayed here as part of a big group and it was such a nice weekend! The cottage was very clean, extremely comfortable and had everything we need.

There is an amazing place to walk about a 5-minute drive down the road, with great parking. Also, a pub nearby that does great food.

Thank you for a great weekend!

“So lovely!”
Reviewed 17 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We stayed as a group on across both Shepherd's Spring cottages. Loved it - rooms were comfy, shared living space great, everything was spotlessly clean.

We were on a running weekend, and the cottages are right on the edge of the New Forest - which is amazing for walking, hiking, running etc.

Dog friendly, well-equipped kitchen, living room with TV, powerful shower, all modern comforts. Very happy!

Our hosts were incredibly accommodating and helped us get the very most out of the weekend. Couldn't recommend them or the cottages enough

“Lovely late November short break.”
Reviewed 6 December 2016 for a stay in November 2016

We booked a late November short break at no 1 Spring Cottages for ourselves and 2 friends. The owner Joanna was very accommodating, she let us stay Thurs to Sun instead of the usual Fri to Mon, she messaged to say we could check in earlier from 12pm and could check out later than the usual 10am. It was also lovely on our arrival to find a note telling us that as the weather had turned colder she had set the heating and hot water to stay on continuously during our stay. The cottage is very comfortable, very much home from home and very well equipped with everything you could possibly need. The grounds the cottage is set in are a delight and it is very well situated to explore the New Forest area and coastal towns. Highly recommended and would love to visit again in the Summer to make the most of the lovely setting. Many thanks, Pauline and Tony Dixon.

“Great cottage”
Reviewed 10 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We had a great stay in shepherds Spring cottage 1. It was lovely and clean, lots of space for 4 adults, baby and dog. It had everything we needed and was superb value for money. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to all of our friends. Some reviews pointed out that it's off a main road. It's really a country lane and the cottages are set back so no noise or issues with that at all.
