Wow what a gem Forest Haven is, on arrival the accommodation was spotlessly clean. The kitchen is very well equipped with large microwave and hot plate so no oven wasn't a problem. Plenty of crockery and utensils.
The bedrooms are excellent, very comfortable beds and bedding, the ensuite bathrooms are amazing and very spacious. Plenty of hot water and a powerful shower. It's also nice to have TVs in both bedrooms.
The longe is very luxurious with 3 huge sofas to relax in, the owner has added a lot of luxury entertainment items which really do give you the 5 star feel in fact this was better than some 5 star hotels I've stayed in.
The garden is perfect, with a huge trampoline and large decking area that house a very nice hot tub, which got plenty of use. Garden is perfect for alfresco dinning with nice patio set and top of the range bbq. There are two small sheds outside which house washing machine and tumble dryer again they are top spec items.
I really can't express how lovely this place is but I would highly recommend not only Forest Haven but all of the owners properties as we have stayed at 3 different ones now and they are all worthy of 5 stars. Thank you Ian for providing affordable 5 star accommodation.
Lovely accommodation with just a couple of points that needed feeding back to the owner which stopped it being a 5 rating. Hopefully these will be sorted before we stay again. The cabin is well equipped with comfy bed - all facilities are high quality. The location if is in a hamlet with a handful of houses. The only sound for the patio were birds singing and horse riders trotting by the front of the house. Ideal location for exploring the wonder New Forest.
Had a great time at Forest Haven. The accommodation is like a 5* hotel. We were part of a large group staying in the wider accommodation so we could all eat together but have our own space for chilling and sleeping. It's the ideal quiet peaceful new forest hideaway. Would recommend it.
Me and my mum rented Forest Haven for five nights in September. We had a lovely stay, the accommodation was just what we wanted, it was warm and comfortable and had everything we required. We loved using the hot tub in the evenings after a busy day exploring. We would defiantly stay again :)
The standard of forest haven is 5* which luxurious surroundings including leather sofas, comfy bed, beautiful showers, and immaculate throughout. Walking distance of lovely restuarants and pubs, we especially recommend the George at fordingbridge. Great base to explore the new forest. The only issue we had was with letting our dog of the lead in the garden which Ian has addressed and is looking at dog proofing the outside space, thankyou for a fantastic holiday letting.
