New Forest Cottages reviews:

"I had the most fantastic birthday at this house, I was absolutely thrilled to arrive and find that it was even better than it looked in the photos. I loved it!"

"We had an absolutely amazing time - thank you so much!"

"We are considering returning to the Old Stables and I'd definitely book with you again - both for the booking experience and the upkeep of the cottage - sheets, kitchen, cleanliness, availability of high chairs travelcots...."

"We had a thoroughly enjoyable weekend and found the property to be very well equipped and suitable for the number of people that attended and everybody had a great time. It was lovely to get all our family together under one roof."

"the cottage was perfectly located with so many convenient shops nearby - it was absolutely perfect to be able to walk out on to the high street and go to the shops. Also a beautiful view of the church."

"We had a lovely time in the New Forest and would definitely come again some day. The Old Stables was perfect and everyone had a lovely time. I think the setting was spectacular and I would personally love to check out more of the whole area as it was all new to me. Wish we could have stayed longer."

"We really enjoyed our time, we run the grad training at least once a year so we will definitely keep you in mind for next time"

"the cottage is in a perfect location. We loved that it is in the town centre - we didn't use our car the whole time we were there. New Forest and ponies are just at bottom of the high street and there are mapped walks around the area, all decent walking distance for adults and children. We were able to let the children walk along to the shops on the Sunday morning on their own which they loved."
