We run the house as part live /part let in and can cater for family groups of 8-10 guests.

The property is new to the the Summer lettings market after being meticulously renovated as a private residence. We let for no more than 140 days a year as per regulations but only when our family don't need the house.

You are assured a very high standard not found in other standard lets - even the sheets and towels are of high quality along with the beautiful house furnishings. Designed as a beautiful family home, this certainly isn't a house set up for lets and we believe that is why we have 100% positive feedback from all our lovely guests.

Woodside is a beautiful, tranquil cottage and is a fabulous place to have family gatherings and wonderful dinner parties. It's a perfect base in the centre of the New Forest. Our wish is that guests really enjoy the peaceful surroundings and tranquility of the garden.

“5 star accommodation”

5 of 5 starsReviewed June 25, 2013

We have just got back from staying at the annexe at woodside cottage and was delighted with the accommodation everything was spotless and Mike the owner was very helpful in telling us the places to go and eat,we had a private garden with table and chairs and 2 sunbeds,absolutly superb.The Crown Inn at Everton and the East End at East Ends where the food was delightful.

My husband Ian and I had an amazing stay at this beautiful 1 bed annexe off the main cottage (which you can also hire out part of) for our wedding anniversary. The owner Mike was a pleasure to meet and get to know. Nothing was too much trouble and he had great tips for restaurants, taxi's, walks etc. He also left us to our own devices, so you could have as much or as little contact with him depending on what you want. The annexe was beautiful, it was more like a little cottage and we had the use of the back garden as Mike and his son use the front, so you are completely private. You have every appliance in the Annexe you could wish for; for your stay. The taxi driver Carlos we were introduced to by Mike was a great character and ferried us around - the passenger ferry to the IOW was only 15mins away so a perfect day out! All in all we had one of the best wedding anniversaries ever. I would thoroughly recommend this place to stay and the warm welcome and information you receive from Mike. Truly an anniversary to remember!! THANK YOU X

“lovely modern accommodation in good location”

5 of 5 starsReviewed July 30, 2013

We enjoyed our stay at Little Woodside. Accommodation was modern and clean with the facilities/equipment we needed for our short stay. Suitable for us as a couple with a toddler. We had use of the back garden within the grounds of the main house and didn't feel overlooked.

Car required, easy to visit Brockenhurst, Milford, Milton on sea, and Lyndhurst.

Would recommend and would stay again.


5 of 5 starsReviewed August 6, 2013

Myself & 2 friends stayed in the annexe, Little Woodside, for a long girls weekend away & it was absolutely fantastic! It was the perfect size and they even put up a lovely single bed downstairs to save us having to make up the double sofa bed every night. We had private use of the back garden and the annexe had everything we could have wanted. The decor is beautiful and even though we had lots of days out planned, we ended up staying in 2 out of the 3 evenings as we wanted to make the most of our lovely accomodation. There was a party staying in the main cottage at the same time as us however we didnt even know they were there and you really felt like it was your own little place and forget that there is a large house attached! so peaceful! Couldnt have wished for anything more and really made the weekend for us! Already looking at trying to go back with my husband as havent stopped raving about it since ive been back! Mike, the owner, was always so quick at responding to emails and happily answers all our questions & recommendations of where to go. He made us feel confident that we had definately picked the right accomodation. Would highly highly recommend! Thank you for an incredible stay!

“Very relaxing!”

5 of 5 starsReviewed August 26, 2013

We arrived aug bank hols to a very pretty house with lovely kept gardens.the annexe entrance is through a side gate which leads to very private garden and wonderful bi-folding doors which you enter the property.Inside is so well done and also cosy you felt you were at home.very comfy bed and great shower.what made me choose this property was the fact we could stay for 2 nights as we did not have the luxury of 3 days off and many self catering property's are 3 days min.we certainly would stay again.

“Idyllic cottage close to everything the New Forest has to offer”

5 of 5 starsReviewed September 18, 2013

This is the perfect property for a visit to the new Forest - The property is beautifully presented, feels cosy and welcoming and has the additional benefit of its own private garden. It has all the modern amenities and necessities required for a very comfortable stay and Mike the owner is very helpful and knowledgeable about the area - what to see and do and where to eat. Thankyou!
