“Everything we needed”
Reviewed 13 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Very comfortable and really well equipped. The children loved the play equipment in the garden and the games and it was wonderful to be right on the edge of the forest - 2 mins walk along the lane and you're there with the ponies, donkeys and cows. We will definitely be back!

Thank you for your very kind review - back to nature is a great title! Poor old Slough...wherever you come from, your cares melt away as soon as you bump over the cattle grid and into the beautiful New Forest. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to welcome you back again next year. Thanks for taking the time to post.

“Peaceful holiday.”
Reviewed 29 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The property was clean and well equipped, and was exactly as described in the details. The beds were comfortable. The WiFii worked well and we didn't have any problems. The garden is ideal for bird watching. We saw Dunnocks, a selection of blue tits, great tits, starlings, blackbirds, robins and pigeons. We were also lucky to see a great spotted woodpecker. Even though the weather was over cast and wet it didn't spoil our stay. Hatchet Pond at the end of the lane was great for seeing the swans, ducks, horses, ponies and donkeys. The cows were quiet and friendly. The Royal Oak pub at Beaulieu served lovely food. Can also recommend the Walhampton Arms lovely food reasonably priced.
Will be recommending the property to my friends.

I'm so glad you enjoyed staying at Forest View, and thank you for such a lovely review. The birds are indeed fantastic at the moment and with the feeders full you can enjoy a busy bird show from the conservatory with a cup of tea or a glass of wine, whatever the weather. Thanks for taking the time to post, and I hope to welcome you back.

“Beautiful property located in peaceful, idyllic countryside..!”
Reviewed 27 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This is a beautiful property, that is located in a very peaceful, idyllic part of the country. It is very nicely decorated to a high standard and very clean, with everything you would need in your own home. With a very large garden, conservatory, and play apparatus for the young ones, as well as the very nice, self contained studio apartment. Come out of the front gate, and you have beautiful walks and cycle routes, without the need to go on the road. We will definitely recommend, and will be using again, when we return to that part of the country. Many thanks.

“In a really lovely corner of the New Forest”
Reviewed 16 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Clean well equipped and spacious accommodation which provides a home from home, but with -at times- a mild whiff (to our canine- sensitive nostrils) of wet dog (and of course it is advertised as dog friendly, so hardly surprising!).
We loved sitting in the conservatory, watching the various visitors to the bird feeders; they were very hungry, so we left an industrial sized tub of fat balls which will hopefully keep our feathered friends happy for a while longer.
We were able to explore the depths of the forest, on foot and by bike, and this is such a great place for wildlife watching.
Wifi was pretty twitchy/ variable.

Thanks so much for taking the time to post a review. I'm glad you enjoyed the wildlife, and thanks so much for leaving the fatballs, that's really kind of you. I'm surprised to read that you detected dog at the house as I had the downstairs carpets professionally cleaned the day before you arrived. I wonder if the smell was possibly some residual dampness following the washing...hopefully that was the case! Look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

“Fabulous location”
Reviewed 26 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Firstly the good points, the location is perfect, right in the new forest and an excellent base for touring the new forest, we had days out every day and didn't have to travel more than 30 minutes to get anywhere, the property is very clean and spacious and very well equipped, we stayed with our four children ranging from 18 to 6 and there was loads of room for all of us, the conservatory was a real plus and the play area was great and very much used by our younger two! The only slight downside was a damp smell in the studio and the downstairs bedroom but I think this was just down to the showers being in these rooms with no extraction as I say, the house was spotlessly clean. Also the internet is not great, very slow but I guess that's the price you pay for the lovely rural location. We had one or two small niggles whilst we were there but these were dealt with quickly and efficiently by Elena who is very friendly. we would recommend this property to friends and family.

Thanks for your very kind and constructive comments. I'm very glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay and that on the whole you were happy at the house. I will look into the issues you raised when I'm next at the house, in a week's time, and take action as appropriate. Our broadband provider is PlusNet. I guess that the speed is dependent on how many people are using broadband at the same time, and what for...ie if you're doing lots of streaming and gaming then maybe it's not quite up to it. For lower level things like checking emails and internet searches, I think it's fine. You were very unlucky to experience problems with a broken light, freezer not freezing and the kettle conking out on the last day...no one has previously had such bad luck! Thanks for your patience while we got everything sorted - I have a great team providing support at the house, so we are normally able to resolve this kind of thing pretty quickly. Thanks very much for taking the time to post, and I'd love to welcome you back in the future!

“Great house, great setting”
Reviewed 26 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Forest view is a wonderful place to stay, we found the house to be tidy, clean, comfortable and very well equipped. It met all of our needs and more. Wonderful woodland walks from the door, and a great location for sightseeing. We had two weeks in this haven of tranquillity and simply didnt want to leave
