Craigwen is a lovely cottage in the village of Burley that offers all you need for a base in the New Forest.
Inside the property is clean and comfortable with a homely country cottage vibe. Outside there is lovely, private seating area at the front that makes the most of the sun later in the day (and also a hassle free gas BBQ).
There are plenty of walks around Burley and also a bicycle hire shop if you wanted to go a bit further afield. A lot of the walks/cycles are completely off road so we felt very safe. Both village pubs were dog friendly so could eat with the pooch in tow.
And lastly we have to mention the gorgeous new forest ponies - they are everywhere! We felt like we were in a scene from an equine version of Jurassic Park. It really added to the experience.
All in all a great few days. Will definitely return.
The host was very helpful during booking and the run up to my stay. The property is beautifully maintained and the facilities modern. The location is unparalleled. You step out of the drive and you are IN the forest!
Best restaurant in the area is White Tails!!!
I highly recommend and would definitely return.
