“Ideal spot for touring the local area.”
Reviewed 7 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Really nice place for a small family or two couples. Very friendly and helpful owners. Everything you need in the cottage, and a nice private garden to relax in. Clean and comfortable. Plenty of parking adjacent. There is also a small nursery with a good selection of plants at great prices. Ideally situated for The New Forest and nearby coast. Great "getaway" spot.

We stayed at Poppy's Cottage May 2013 with our two children aged 8 and 10.

Getting there: Please ask the owner for the postcode and use satnav if you can. I am not a huge satnav fan but in this case it got us there after the owner told us to turn left off the Lyndhurst - Lymington road when critically it should have been right. After 15 min delay and using the satnav to get us to the correct lane, we found it.

Property: It seems to be attached to the back of the owners house and adjacent to a small plant nursery. The main gates are shut and locked at night so your vehicle is secure.

When we stayed there it was unseasonably cold. The owners seem to be the only ones with control of the heating so you have to ask them if you want it on.

The door opens into the main living area which is a kitchen/diner/lounge combined. The sofa is on the opposite wall to the TV so is rather a long way away. My children ended up sitting on chairs in the middle of the room to get a better view, although this does mean if you are still on the sofa they block the screen completely!

The double room is directly off the living area and has a tiny en suite shower room with no window or radiator so towels stayed damp throughout our stay.

Down a short corridor is the twin room which has a much nicer bathroom with window and radiator.

The whole place needs a thorough spring clean. There were spiders and cobwebs in most corners of every room and a collection of dead wasps and flies behind the TV. I left a note and picture to this effect on the kitchen blackboard.

The beds however were lovely - really comfortable with nice bedding.

The place was pretty well equipped but note: NO Freezer, only a large fridge.

I would recommend this to a friend on the basis of its good location but check the owners have given it a spring clean first.

“Lovely cottage, perfect for families”
Reviewed 16 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

We spent a week here and it was the perfect location for exploring the New Forest and trips to Lymington & the Isle of Wight.
Our family group included our 5 year old daughter who loved the birds in the garden & my 72 year old mother who loved the plants and who was grateful to have accommodation all on the ground level with no stairs to negotiate.
Clean, nicely decorated & furnished, well equipped and a great location. Couldn't ask for more!

“Superb”
Reviewed 16 October 2012 for a stay in October 2012

Needed some to stay for a family party - having 3 kids makes it difficult for us to find places that aren't going to cost the earth. The owners were very accommodating and allowed us to provide an air bed for our youngest. A wonderful place to stay, lovely people who couldn't be more helpful. Will definately stay there again
