“Lovely ❤️”
Reviewed 21 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Overall this is a little gem! Lovely friendly hosts who were discreet but attentive (I have to point out how kind Chris was when my car needed jump starting!)
The cottage itself is beautifully quirky and has everything you need. Parts are dated and the bunk beds are creaky beyond belief but somehow it's just such a happy space to be in that these things are overlooked. Warmer duvets would be welcomed but other than this it's a truly lovely place to stay...the New Forest is stunning!
Thank you for our lovely mini break

“Surprise birthday weekend”

The lodge was perfect for our 2 night stay for a surprise birthday weekend away. Very clean and in a beautiful part of the new forest, there is lots to do near by and Bournemouth is only a short drive away. Pool and hot tub were perfect for relaxing in after a day full on adventure. The 5 of us had an amazing time and will definitely be coming back!

“Surprise 60th birthday/new year break”
Reviewed 5 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

We chose Forest Lodge and Forest cottage as we are a family of 14 and were surprising my husband for his 60th birthday and the properties had everything we required.
Swimming pool, hot tub, play area, tennis courts and of course the New Forest.
There were 4 generations of us too!
We had an amazing weekend and would return in a heartbeat

“Ideal base for exploring the area”

Great location for exploring the area, the new forest is outside the gate, Bournemouth's seaside is 30 minutes away to the south and Salisbury is 30 minutes away to the north.

The cottage offers everything you need and the swimming pool was ideal.

“Great location, great indoor pool!”
Reviewed 14 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We stayed at Forest Cottage for 4 nights with our two young boys (3 and 1.5 years old).
The boys loved the outside play area (and meeting the owners' friendly dogs!) and we all loved the indoor pool so much we went in every day.
Great location - just off the A31, so really easy to get to, but turn the other way out of the driveway and you might well meet a herd or two of wild New Forest ponies or spot a couple of wild deer. Only 15 minutes away from Moors Valley Country Park and the Liberty Raptor Centre - both well worth a visit.
The only difficultly we had with the property was the layout - the children's room had a (very exciting!) spiral staircase to it which meant there was no door between it and the lounge so we had to tiptoe around a bit in the evenings, but I'm sure that wouldn't be a problem with children who don't sleep as lightly as ours!
The owner was really helpful and said we were free to set up bedding / the travel cot anywhere we liked, and also provided a highchair within hours of us requesting it.
