I booked the Forest Lodge for four nights after being let down by another property owner and I am glad that the first one fell through.

Ellie was delightful to deal with and answered all the questions I threw at her.

The lodge itself was very spacious, even more so as it was just my wife and I staying. We had a lovely time using the lodge as a base to explore the New Forest and surrounding towns.

The lodge itself contains everything you need for self catering, comfy beds and shared access with the other property to the swimming pool and hot tub. We were lucky enough to have sole access to the pool and hot tub as the other property was not occupied for the duration of our stay.

I thoroughly recommend staying here and look forward to booking another short break during the summer.

Handy tip, if the WIFI seems slow just turn off the router located in the master bedroom and turn it back on, this fixed the speed issues.

Liked best: The design of the lodge and the swimming pool
Liked least: Had issues with a plug in the bathroom on the last night, general wear and tear which is to be expected. Apart from the minor irritation everything was fantastic!

Located in the beautiful setting of the New Forest, saw lots of wild life and local animal life. Lodge was warm and homely, well equipped.
Owners readily available.

“fantastic family weekend break”

Absolutely fantastic cottage in a beautiful area. Great for exploring the new forest. Owners, who live on site, are very friendly. Booked it for my husband's 50th birthday weekend and visited with our kids (21, 19 and 14). Plenty to do in the area and great to have the use of a pool and hot tub (for our sole use after 7 p.m - shared with one other cottage before then but we were lucky that the cottage was empty that weekend so was ours to use as and when we wanted) The cottage was very well stocked but could do with some hooks on the bedroom doors/ bathroom door,, a towel rail near the shower and a lock on the toilet door - all only minor considerations. Would definitely book again.

“My son cried when leaving - despite numerous holidays abroad he said this was his best!”
Reviewed 8 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

A comfortable and cosy lodge with everything you could need or want. The wifi is a big help.
Helpful and friendly owners.
Swimming pool was a huge hit with our 2 children, we couldn't keep our 8 year out! The pool was slightly too chilly for our 1 year old but she got used to it!
The playground was also loved and used by both kids, however from our point if view this was a little run down and could do with a revamp. This did not bother the kids though, who loved it!
Fantastic location in a beautiful area.

“Would love to come bAck here- our toddler keeps asking to come back!”
Reviewed 21 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

After a tricky start of getting hold of owners and managing to work out available dates and boom it, we were so happy once we arrived.
We were in the lodge which is attached to the swimming pool. The benefit of this property over the other one is that you have exclusive access to the pool and more importantly hot tub after 8 pm. As the pool is next door, baby monitors work a treat!

Yes agree the pool was slightly on the chilly side , it didn't stop my toddler but we couldn't take the baby in.

The owners have three gorgeous dogs, who like to great you on a daily basis. Again a huge hit with my toddler.

The swing area is a little tired but through the eyes of my daughter it did not matter one iota.

Ringwood town is easily accessible in 5 minutes, a nice town with restaurants and a waitrose.

The nearest new forest town is burley, the witches village- 10 minutes drive.

It was just a wonderful break and we would like to thank Chris and Ellie for having us.
