“Dogs loved it”
Reviewed 1 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Lovely cottage in the woods, would really benefit from having some sort of wifi or sky package tho as there is not much to do. Also to be able to look for attractions , restaurants etc. Beds were really hard and uncomfortable. Having a jack Russell terrier , front gate not enclosed enough as dog got out, so in need of chicken wire to keep safe. Beautiful walks in the forest, and loved seeing the cows, squirrels and birds etc .

“Another lovely stay”
Reviewed 10 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Our second time at this lovely warm and cosy cottage, hopefully not our last. Another lovely break away in the forest. A great place to get your children out and exploring nature, my granddaughter didn't want to leave, or just to immerse yourself in peace and quiet. Although the hustle and bustle of Bournemouth, Poole and Southampton are just a short drive away. There is also a great play park close by and a cafe with lovely home made cakes straight out of the oven. The Dorset Apple cake would be difficult to beat!

We are over the moon that you enjoyed your holiday at The Chalet, thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts on your stay with us. It sounds like the perfect balance to have a relaxing place to stay with all the nature of the forest on the doorstep, as well as bigger towns to explore should the mood take you - wonderful! We certainly hope that you return again and again.

“A woodland getaway”
Reviewed 30 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

A lovely peaceful chalet in the woods, away from the hustle and bustle of a busy life. My granddaughter loved the play park, which was just an exciting walk away through the woods and I loved the chai latte served in the cafe! Also had the added bonus of the beautiful beaches of Bournemouth just a short drive away. All in all a lovely break away!

“Great dog friendly holiday”
Reviewed 30 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Great place to holiday, certainly if you have a dog. Lovely to have a large enclosed garden and able to walk straight from the front door. Very easy to get to local attractions and facilities. The ranger, Paul, very keen to ensure everything was in order.
We would like to visit again, but it looks well booked up for the rest of the year.
