Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a long weekend and wished we could have stayed longer. The facilities are great with everything you could ever need, very comfortable to the point we did not want to go out! Location is peaceful with good local facilities and some very nice walks in the surrounding countryside. We would certainly like to go back.

In the New Forest village of Boldre with it's Saxon church and within the New Forest National Park with free roaming ponies, pigs and donkeys. Close to Lymington with it's famous yachting marina. Lymington is a pretty Georgian town with a lively Saturday Market and ferries to the Isle of Wight from the cobbled quay. Easy access to the lovely southern beaches of Milford-on-Sea, Highcliffe, Christchurch and Poole. A little further is Weymouth (home of 2012 Olympic sailing events) and in the other direction the home of the Royal Navy at the Historic Dockyard, Portsmouth where you can visit HMS Victory and the NEW Mary Rose museum. Very local attractions include Beaulieu Palace, Abbey and National Motor Museum, Exbury Gardens with it's small gauge steam railway and lovely arboretum. Horse riding, walking, cycling and sailing are all popular New Forest activities in all weather and for a little retail therapy Southampton's West Quay shopping centre. Only an hour from Winchester and 90 minutes from central London yet firmly within the New Forest where medieval traditions still survive and can be explored at the New Forest Visitor Centre in Lyndhurst. The local villages are fascinating; Burley with it's history of dragons and witches where you can take a horse drawn wagon ride into the forest, Brockenhurst which has a rail link to London and the excellent Brokenhurst Manor Golf Club (yes, spelled differently), Keyhaven which has salt marsh walks to spot sea birds, lovely breezy walks beside the sea along the spit to Hurst Castle and views of the needles and the Isle of Wight, Beaulieu, which has not only the Palace House, a member of the Treasure Houses of England consortium, and the National Motor Museum (currently housing the James Bond car collection) but sits beside the lovely tidal Beaulieu River and leads on to Bucklers Hard, a Tudor boat building village with a museum of it's own. The cottage in a quiet spot yet only a short walk onto the open forest or into bustling Lymington and a short drive from the New Forest beaches. A country area with shady lanes, beautiful churches and wildlife in abundance, with walks right from the door.
