We absolutely loved this house. Was perfect for two families to share, including two dogs. It was winter so we didn’t enjoy the terrace, but the house is super comfortable and so spacious!. The kitchen is fab and has everything you need. We had gorgeous walks in the woods and were 20 mins away from the beach. We didn’t want to leave and would love to go back. Thank you for a wonderful short break!
My family had a great few days at Anoush. The house was beautifully renovated and was very comfortable - had everything we need and we had some great evenings sitting outside in the garden. It’s also very well located and a short drive to shops, the beach and nice walks.
Lovely house. Absolutely spotlessly clean. Great bedrooms. The house is very light and well furnished, it has everything you need for a perfect stay!
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The place is just beautiful. Designed to an incredibly high standard, with every aspect considered, deliberate, well chosen and thoughtful. It was intimate, cosy and we couldn’t stop smiling. Location wise, it’s perfect for the little village where there were some great restaurants and a lovely wine bar. We enjoyed some nice walks and looked forward to coming home to a cosy fire and a cup of tea. I’d strongly recommend a visit if you get the chance. Xx
We had a lovely stay with 3 friends, working from there one day (good wifi), and exploring the next 2. We thought the welcome basket was a nice touch, really liked the decor, comfy beds and good amenities. Perfect for cooking, with condiments and spices available. Lovely snug in the lounge, and great to have the stove for colder nights. The only drawback was a strong smell when we arrived, which turned out to be the drain in the shower room. We ran hot water for 10 mins and the smell went so easily solved.
It rained heavily most of the time of our stay and, while we were disappointed we could not explore the area as much as we might have liked, we could not have stayed in a better place: spacious, comfortable and very relaxing, and still enjoying amazing views!
With a great location this house was spacious, well equipped and comfortable in all aspects. A big kitchen that enabled the whole family to cook, and with a long dining room table. Ideal arrangement for our 3 generations visit. An assortment of bedrooms to cater for adults and kids alike. Bathrooms galore -even one with a roll-top bath that the kids enjoyed at the end of an activity filled day. A hot tub and croquette lawn, and roulette table and space invaders table top computer. a couple of kids pedal cars - something for everyone. All the beds had first class bedding and towe...more
Lovely property in excellent location. High standard of decor and comfort. Lymington excellent base for discovering the surrounding coast and new forest.
One word, AMAZING from start to finish. The ladies at New Forest Escapes were so helpful, their local knowledge and the time they spent helping me plan the weekend was just brilliant. The whole booking process from start to finish was seamless and nothing was too much trouble. The accommodation was perfect, the house was absolutely stunning and the decor beautiful and homely. It was the perfect weekend break for the 10 of us. The beds were super comfy and the space in the house was just perfect for all of us. The house was so well equipped it really was home from home.

We spent a very relaxing weekend with another family at Nutmeg House. The layout is a little it quirky but worked for four adults and four children. The house was well equipped, super comfy sofas in a spacious lounge. The kitchen had everything you could need. Location-wise, it was perfect for the local Saturday market on the High Street and walking distance to the quayside. The only challenge was the parking. There is space for only one small car in front of the house and the drive is narrow for access and limited space to turn around to come out - we struggled with a Suzuki Swift. ...more
We had a wonderful stay at Woodlynch during the October Half Term. Such a beautiful property, all kitted out to a really high standard. Our 3 kids loved it, a real home from home, with a great selection of toys to keep them happy! There were some awesome welcoming touches, like the absolutely delicious homemade cake, chilled bottle of Prosecco and milk in the fridge that were waiting for us on arrival. The adventurer packs for the kids were just delightful! Such a wonderful stay, we’d love to come back in the summer so we could make more use of the garden and pool!
Thank you for a super property and super customer service - great location and facilities- spacious and comfortable
Beau Soleil was perfect for 3 adults, 3 children and 2 dogs. It was clean and very comfortable. The location is a stone’s throw to the beach and woods. We had a lovely stay with bonus of great weather!
We recently stayed at Furzedown house and what a great find it was! It was spotless and had absolutely everything we needed for a stay. We were a group of 3 families (11 in total) with different ages and it catered for all with plenty of space. Just on the edge of new forest so didn’t need to travel far for amazing walks. Cannot fault the house and would love to stay again.
We had a lovely few days at Gins Barn. The location is truly unique beside the estuary with its sail boats going past. The accommodation itself is also comfortable and very clean and also well stocked. A little bit of TLC outside is needed as the external seating areas are tired and a little unkept. Overall, we would thoroughly recommend.
It is a on a great location for walks and it’s a 15 mins walk into town. It is a well layout house, excellent for a big family gathering. The kitchen has most things you need. The quality of furnishing is excellent. One bedroom has a boiler and it made a constant sound. A couple of requests were unanswered. However, where they did, they have been accommodating. I would highly recommend this lovely home to others.
We had a lovely family holiday in this well equipped, beautiful home which is furnished to a high standard and well positioned for exploring the area. Plenty of space for 6 adults. The outside space was so relaxing and despite having quite a bit of rain during our stay, we managed to sit out and to enjoy a couple of meals outside and to sit in the early morning sun and read. The train station is very close, a 10 minute walk (there is a short cut) so we went to Lymington by train and walked out past the open air swimming pool - very good walk for birdwatchers - many species of wading bird...more
Nye Creek and Little Nye were the perfect choice for our family get together. It suited all our age groups from 6years old to 70+ (including 2 dogs! ) Felt like we were in a 5*hotel!
Thank you for a wonderful stay! We were 3 families coming together for a very special celebration. The house was just what we needed- extremely clean, very well equipped & beautifully presented, with the bonus of the use of the open fire! We felt very welcome from the start with the greeting of the Dorset apple cake and the children's activity packs! A very comfortable, homely stay, with breath taking views of the New Forest, it truly was the perfect house for such a memorable family occasion. We are hoping to return again next year, in the Summer!
Lovely cottage in heart of the village. Beautiful interior, all modern and stylish. Well equipped kitchen although we didn’t cook much at all as so many great places to eat out. My only suggestion would be for more comfortable or greater choice of pillows! All of them were very firm and bulky. Usually they vary across the bedrooms at rental properties and I can find a couple that suit but these were all the same and gave me neck ache so I had to go and buy my own!!! Minor point but worth mentioning to make this place perfect! Thank you for a wonderful stay.
We love Keyhaven anyway and often stay in the area. The pub is AMAZING. And Keyhaven in just ideal for everything. The property is small but perfectly formed. It has everything you could need for a few days away. Private parking space, located down a very quiet private road. It’s light and airy and well laid out. We didn’t really use the kitchen but it’s got everything you need. The shower takes some getting used to… the water pressure is high and it can literally turn the bathroom into a wet room. I would definitely recommend this property and booking through New Forest Retreat...more
We loved this cottage. It is so stylish, modern and comfortable. The sofas in the front room had plenty of space for the 6 of us.
On the plus side: Very clean and reasonably comfortable (if you can sleep on Tempur mattresses and expect comfortable sofa/chairs). We were never cold and had some very cold external temperatures during our stay. Social kitchen. Great lighting - with the exception of the bedside lights which kept collapsing. Lovely downstairs bathroom with good shower. Quiet road and in a good position to explore by car. All the 'extras' were great. Washing tablets, dishwasher tablets, cling film, foil, spare toilet rolls, food storage bags, basic oil, salt pepper, sweet spices, tea, coffee - all of ...more
Lovely cottage ideal location for visiting the new Forrest neat and tidy and very homely loved the horses visiting us at the front gate every day would highly recommend if you want a relaxed break with peace and quiet
Ditto. We enjoyed the holiday and would be pleased to come again, but please don't try to bully me into supplying a review of a particular number of letters.
Back home from a fabulous family holiday at Deer Lodge. The house and the facilities are wonderful. Everything is so well thought out and suited us all perfectly. We especially loved the pool, gym, hot tub and cabana. There were also some lovely walks for our dog including shaded ones in the hot weather. Everyone at New Forest Escapes is very helpful and communication was great. I would highly recommend NFE and Deer Lodge although I would actually like to just move in there permanently
A fantastic cottage with all the facilities you could possibly need. Ideal location if you enjoy walks by the sea. Can't wait to return.
Great place to get away from everything. Remote and quiet, lots of wildlife on your doorstep. Despite the need for some upgrades the property is well appointed, has lovely furnishings and is perfectly adequate for a great stay
Lovely stay, kitchen very well equipped and that was really helpful as we planned a couple of nights in with special dinners. Great relaxing by the woodburner sipping wine and playing board games. During the day going on long walks by the sea or through the forest. Would love to visit in the summer and use the outside area, however I guess that might be a bit pricey given the swimming pool.
The house was in a quiet location with a large playroom for the children with plenty of toys which was brilliant. The customer service was also very good. There were, however, several areas of the house which let it down and definitely made it not worth the cost. The heating was not good enough to keep the downstairs warm. It was September and we still had to light the log fire every morning when the kids got up to make it habitable. If it was sunny the upstairs would be very very hot whilst the downstairs would still be cold. Difficult to manage with young children. The kitchen appliances wer...more
We had a fab stay at the property, 2 mins walk from a brilliant pub and the linen used on the beds were amazing Some things to consider to make it even better 1. Upgrade of cooking utensils particularly pots and pans 2. Put a wood burner in the living room- clearly not a cheap addition but would make it epic 3. The seating in the lounge could be improved, we suggest removing the seating ledge along the window and popping in a large corner sofa which would allow everyone to flop on one sofa- again appreciate there is a cost here One final point- if you turn on the shower then go into...more
Host met us on arrival, very friendly with some helpful advice. Cottage felt homely straight away and host had thoughtfully provided some tea/coffee etc to get us started. Everything worked as it should and we had a lovely few days in a beautiful setting. Thoroughly recommend.
House is well equipped and comfortable for both kids and adults. Yard and facilities are excellent Hosts thought about everything from towels for the Jacuzzi, basic groceries to presents for kids. Very comfortable bedrooms It was very welcoming. Cons: -We arrived a bit late, no one waited for us. Some essential info was given to us only in the next days. -Instructions to beach were misleading. -Could not control bath heating -Kids TV channels required payment
Very well equipped, comfortable and quirky property. Excellent location with ample parking and fantastic sized garden. Very accurate description in the listing. We were 2 families so to have 2 separate sleeping quarters was just perfect! Fantastic long weekend away!
Nothing other than all top marks for a reason ... great house, bags of room for 6 adults and spot-on location
Although our stay was overwhelmingly positive, I’ll get a couple of negative points out of the way to start with: Not having been there before, we found the property difficult to find on our first afternoon: Main Road is quite lengthy! Having said this, the office helped us with a satellite view of the two driveways that we were directed to look for and it might be useful to mention the white post on the heathland opposite (which is how we navigated for the rest of our stay!). Or provide a picture of the 2 properties either side of Beckheath? The other negative is the bathroom, which onl...more
We had a very comfortable and enjoyable stay at the Boatshed. Its in a great location with lots of walks and amenities. The property was well equipped and we are looking forward to staying there again.
As soon as we entered the door at 'Forest Edge' we felt at home. We loved it. It is spotlessly clean, spacious, very comfortable and homely. The house is very well equipped with everything you would need on a holiday. The Football Table provided endless entertainment for us all and the Playroom for the children in our party was just brilliant. The garden was superb and the view from the garden gate over the Village Green was hugely popular as there was a constant stream of gorgeous ponies which the children in our party, indeed all of us, found fascinating. The location of 'Forest E...more
Heather Cottage is a lovely cottage set in a perfect location - close to Brockenhurst centre and with the ability to walk straight into the forest. It is very welcoming and we really liked the cake, and bottle of wine left for us! We have 2 children under 5 and they loved the garden making full use of the trampoline and little swimming pool. The house gave us plenty of space and is well appointed. The communication between New Forest Escapes was excellent with any problems or questions being resolved quickly. It is clearly a family home rather than a full time holiday rental so some cupboards...more
