Stayed here for 2 nights in February.
The lodge had everything we needed and was a great size. It had everything we needed and we really enjoyed having the log burner going.
There is a pub which is literally a 3 minute walk(unfortunately was closed for annual holiday during our stay) and also several others a short drive away. Forest haven is also in a great location for some lovely walks in the new forest.
We had a lovely long weekend staying here and getting away from the hustle and bustle of things!
Absolutely perfect little getaway! Such a beautiful lodge, very spacious, very comfortable and cozy, you really get a 5 star feel with the huge tv and mod cons in the lounge area and smart TVs in each bedroom. The hot tub got lots of use and was perfect in the winter weather! Thank you to Ian for all of your help and for a wonderful stay! We will for sure be back soon :)
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.
