It was very comfortable and well appointed and it is obvious the owners have gone the "extra mile" with a lot of thought given to the comfort and convenience of their guests. We loved the welcome package and the cleanliness and quality of the cottage and furnishings. It was extremely well placed for exploring the New Forest and adjoining areas, and even for short trips to the coast. A thoroughly wonderful stay.
