“Perfect retreat”
Reviewed 19 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Needed to visit The New Forest to visit a relative in hospital at very short notice,Hilary and Paul were amazing and helpful .I stayed in the Swallows Nest which was spotlessly clean and warm.Hilary had provided breakfast cereal and milk to tide me over on the first night.Another nice touch was fresh flowers The farm is in a quiet rural location with cows and sheep.Ringwood is about 1 1/2 miles away with a good range of shops and supermarkets,Lymington and Christchurch are within easy reach.
I will definitely be coming back to stay again

We had a fantastic week in this very lovely cottage. We had a great welcome from Hilary and thoroughly enjoyed our cake and breakfast pack.

The cottage is very well equipped with everything you could need and is very clean, and modern and well cared for. Its a great base for exploring the area and there was lots to do as a family with two young kids.

We loved the location and being on a farm - the kids loved the courtyard and picnic are and making friends with the other children who were staying.

We would love to come back soon!

Just returned from a lovely week in The Barn. Fantastic accommodation in a beautiful setting. The Barn is stunning and has everything you could wish for. It was perfectly situated only a short drive to the heart of the new forest and the coast. We will definitely be going back.

“Fantastic cottages in a good location”
Reviewed 4 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Stayed in The Granary throughout the whole of March and we had pretty much everything we needed and anything we didn't have Hilary was happy to lend us anything. It very clean and the cottage is lovely and spacious. Beds were comfortable and it was good having a laundry room right next door.

We did have problems with the fridge freezing our food to begin with which meant we had to throw it away because it got ruined but once we turned it down to 1 it was fine. Also had to ask for heater as it was so cold in there we asked about the underfloor heating but the floor never felt warm and we were always cold which isn't good in a month like February when it's freezing outside.

Other than that everything else we were happy with and we really enjoyed our stay.

“A Great Holiday Break”
Reviewed 30 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We stayed in The Barn which was very well equipped and comfortable. The breakfast pack and cake was a nice welcome along with the flowers.Hilary, the owner is very welcoming and helpful and it is good to be on a working farm. The cottage is an excellent base for exploring the area and there is plenty to see. The farm would also be a good venue for young children with plenty space. We will be back!

“Highly recommended.”
Reviewed 13 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

I can't recommend Upper Kingston Farm Cottages enough. We have stayed here three years running and have never been disappointed. The cottages are spacious, with beautiful, tasteful fittings and the children always have a wonderful time running in the picnic field and making friends with other children who might stay. Hillary goes out of her way to make everyone welcome. The tea tray with a wonderful cake is set out as one arrives and there is a delicious breakfast pack in the fridge full of sumptuous local products. We will return! Again!

“Wonderful accommodation, great location, spacious, lots of nice touches.”
Reviewed 7 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We had a wonderful holiday, staying in The Barn. The breakfast, flowers and cake waiting for us was very welcome. The Barn was lovely and well equipped. The owner was happy to provide anything we couldn't find (a screwdriver!)
The location is great, really close to Ringwood, and great for small children. Our 18 month old loved seeing sheep and cows every morning.
I would highly recommend this property, we had an amazing holiday.
