Reviewed 24 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

arrived in wonderful warm weather which went on all week . my 70th birthday was the occasion , my family were staying 2 nights each with one year olds . although the property was excellently fitted out, the internet (my husband relys on daily) was so slow and intermitant we had to go find one in the library at Ringwood , . bedroom space realy dreadfull 3 bedrooms fitted into a space with a headroom that could struggle with 2 bedrooms . , the travel cots made it impossible to "get out of bed , so one person had to sleep on downstairs sofa . result? no sleep , the position of the SEMI DETACHED cottage, is excellent , but the lack of privacy was an issue , we enjoyed the "hot tub" but with different people, who hired the caravan at the back called "the lodge" they had to walk past in very close proximity .
we clearly booked at the end ,,or during a very busy season of letting . , we arrived at 4.30 , to a bottle of fizz for me a card ,on the kitchen table a lovely.surprise thank you . but a floor swimming with water . we had to stay out of the kithchen for an hour ,it was so wet . cleaning sqad clearly only just gone and clearly , a lot of maintenance now needed "carpet stains broken cuboard etc . , but nothing spoiled a realy cracking week , I did leave a list of repairs for cleaning staff , as doing a "turnaround on a heavily booked property? must be impossible , great week ,parking issues with all.people staying in caravan "we were told to park in front of your window" caravan guests told us when we returned after wonderful days out to find our very limited space was occupied by yet another strange car . the only space blocked , we showed the tenants of the caravan our chart on "where to park" but although they agreed ,, did not move the car , making sat "our leaving day very difficult as all has to be carried over cattle grid, if your own space is now gone . , very poor bedrooms one with a superb balcony , but crouching in order to cross the bedroom takes the pleasure out of using it , a huge, lack of privacy .a truly amazing downstairs, fire sound system, tv, . no garden semi , not detached plus caravan at rear .would I recommend to a friend? after explaining ,,what is actualy on offer yes . but a need to know on privacy parking and bedroom space vital .

Contrast this with all the other 5* reviews and make your own judgement. This guest was "challenging" from enquiry stage booking and paying for only 2 people then turning up with 7 or 8 staying! We only take a maximum of 6 so she would find it a bit tight. There is parking for 5 cars. But this lady took all the spaces even the separate property's allocated parking and leaving the property in a terrible state. The upstairs has 2 King and 1 Double room, family bathroom, separate shower toilet and sink and a balcony terrace that can take 6 people for dinner if needed. I guess if you try to sleep 8 and a child (free) it will seem tight upstairs but nearly all our guests find it fine. Our cleaning standards get 5*s see the other reviews so it took an extra 2 hrs and extra cleaner to deal with the mess. The gardens side and back overlook the National park. There is no "caravan" and you look out over open parkland see the other reviews.

We did provide a free bottle of Champagne and a 70th Birthday card on arrival but I guess this lady wanted 8 bottles even though she only pay for 2 people and crammed in 8 plus a child!

When we arrived at Forest Corner it was such a pleasant surprise to have so much available to us within the cottage, from kitchen essentials to entertainment. We really felt at home within a few hours. Lovely place to stay with great facilities. Hot tub was fab. Thank you!

“Lovely break in the New Forest”
Reviewed 26 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Lovely Cottage in the New Forest , we had regular visits on the green at the front of the house by ponies, cows and donkeys. The cottage is fully equipped with lots of mod cons. The bose entertainment system is amazing. The only downside is the wifi which is barely workable and with inconsistent mobile signal the younger members of our party found this extremely fustrating. The hot tub is a great addition, lovely to relax in after a busy day seeing the local sights. The downstairs is lovely and roomy we were a party of 6 adults and a baby and it was nice to have the large area and a nice table to all eat together. The upstairs however is slightly cramped compared to the downstairs with low ceilings which adds to the character however can feel a bit limiting. The cottage is well situated for visiting the local area Portsmouth , Southampton , Monkey World and Bournmouth just a few places we visited as well as being centrally located in the forest for walking.

“Beautiful interior in an idyllic location”
Reviewed 1 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed here over the bank holiday weekend and despite the mixed weather still found there were plenty of things to do and vist to keep everyone amused. Great use was made of the X - Box and DVD's but also we managed to visit lots of lovely places around and especially enjoyed horse riding nearby, crabbing at Mudeford, lovely local pub food and a trip to the New Forest Water Park just down the road. House was lovely and clean with everything thought about to make sure we had a very relaxed holiday.

“Amazing Amazing Amazing!”
Reviewed 2 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

What a great place to stay!
Everything you could possibly need has been thought of!
Beautiful location and quite a nice spot to tour the new forest from.
We had an amazing time and the hot tub was a real treat after our forest walks!
The Old Beams Inn, The High Corner Inn and The George are all fantastic places to eat and they are all very nearby.
All round great place to stay and definitely WORTH EVERY PENNY!!!

Can't wait to go back!
