“Lovely cottage.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This cottage is a great cottage in the heart of Lyndhurst. It's very close to the town centre, and a short drive to all good attractions close by.
The only slight downside to this cottage, is it needs a good painting, some of the walls have pen marks on them.
The games room is great for kids, some of the balls for the pool table are missing but the children didn't mind. There was also no ball for the fuse ball.
However this is still a great cottage, the rooms are all very well sized.

“needs updating”

people found this review helpful

we had a great time as very good for village and forest, but the house its self is in need of updating and is very tired looking it was not that clean when we got there dirty plates and cups in cupboard and chipped. The garden was unusable as the fence was down in two places so my grandchildren couldn't play out. All in all we had a lovely time as we were all together but would not return, unless some money is spent on the property and updated.

Management Response

Dear Spring Cottage Guest. Huge apologies that the fence was a problem during your stay. My normal gardener was inundated with work as the recent storms had caused big problems in the area. The fence was fixed soon after your stay and is now the wonderful safe and secure garden that it should be. Similarly the kitchen has been re-stocked with new crockery and implements. These do wear during the year so we keep checking the house regularly for anything else that can make it even better. Huge thanks for your feedback. Kind Regards, Spring Cottage.

“NIce place and well appointed but lacking a few essentials”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 February 2014 for a stay in August 2013

The house is a good size with lots of things for children to make it a great place to stay even in foul weather and I would stay there again but there were a few minor niggles.

Carpeted dining room, with 5 under 5, this was a nightmare to keep clean. No coffee machine/cafetiere/ stove top espresso maker/ anything, you can't market this to tired parents without!

“Perfect for the family”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

The house is ideal for a young family outside of the summer, providing a safe and spacious environment for them to play in and plenty of room for sleep.

The house is comfortable and well placed for Lyndhurst and the forest, with the visitors' centre within 10 minutes walk.

The only down sides in an otherwise great holiday were the general cleanliness on arrival and the proximity to a busy road. Local motorists are not as tolerant of residents pulling up in front of their houses as you would hope.

“Perfect for what we needed.”

We live in Dubai but come from the UK. We have family all over so our stay at Spring Cottage was meant as somewhere we could all get together for the New Year before we flew home and it was perfect for that.

Great bedrooms and bathrooms/WC (although the locks weren't working on any, which can be quite awkward with guests - Small issue, though). The bath upstairs is huge and was my refuge from the rest of the family when I needed some peace and quiet!

The cottage is in a brilliant location for access to Lyndhurst via foot. A ten minute stroll gets you onto the High Street, where cafes, restaurants, takeaways and gift shops can be found.

Spring Cottage is also well located for short drives to beautiful countryside and the south coast.

Sadly the situation of the cottage doesn't lend itself to great views and the road outside can get very busy. However, this only tends to be a problem when getting in and out of the driveway. Again, not much of a negative. I slept in the room closest to the road and was never disturbed.

The dining room and living room are spacious enough for plenty of people. It would've been a real bonus to have the wood-burning stove in the living room working, rather than just being there for show. There's nothing nicer than coming home and getting a real fire going. The radiators were a bit hit and miss. The kitchen is quite large which, again, is great if your having people over and need some space.

All in all though, a great place and we would/will definitely book again. We'd love to stay in the Summer.
