We have just got back from staying at the annexe at woodside cottage and was delighted with the accommodation everything was spotless and Mike the owner was very helpful in telling us the places to go and eat,we had a private garden with table and chairs and 2 sunbeds,absolutly superb.The Crown Inn at Everton and the East End at East Ends where the food was delightful.

My husband Ian and I had an amazing stay at this beautiful 1 bed annexe off the main cottage (which you can also hire out part of) for our wedding anniversary. The owner Mike was a pleasure to meet and get to know. Nothing was too much trouble and he had great tips for restaurants, taxi's, walks etc. He also left us to our own devices, so you could have as much or as little contact with him depending on what you want. The annexe was beautiful, it was more like a little cottage and we had the use of the back garden as Mike and his son use the front, so you are completely private. You have every appliance in the Annexe you could wish for; for your stay. The taxi driver Carlos we were introduced to by Mike was a great character and ferried us around - the passenger ferry to the IOW was only 15mins away so a perfect day out! All in all we had one of the best wedding anniversaries ever. I would thoroughly recommend this place to stay and the warm welcome and information you receive from Mike. Truly an anniversary to remember!! THANK YOU X

“lovely modern accommodation in good location”

5 of 5 starsReviewed July 30, 2013

We enjoyed our stay at Little Woodside. Accommodation was modern and clean with the facilities/equipment we needed for our short stay. Suitable for us as a couple with a toddler. We had use of the back garden within the grounds of the main house and didn't feel overlooked.

Car required, easy to visit Brockenhurst, Milford, Milton on sea, and Lyndhurst.

Would recommend and would stay again.

Myself & 2 friends stayed in the annexe, Little Woodside, for a long girls weekend away & it was absolutely fantastic! It was the perfect size and they even put up a lovely single bed downstairs to save us having to make up the double sofa bed every night. We had private use of the back garden and the annexe had everything we could have wanted. The decor is beautiful and even though we had lots of days out planned, we ended up staying in 2 out of the 3 evenings as we wanted to make the most of our lovely accomodation. There was a party staying in the main cottage at the same time as us however we didnt even know they were there and you really felt like it was your own little place and forget that there is a large house attached! so peaceful! Couldnt have wished for anything more and really made the weekend for us! Already looking at trying to go back with my husband as havent stopped raving about it since ive been back! Mike, the owner, was always so quick at responding to emails and happily answers all our questions & recommendations of where to go. He made us feel confident that we had definately picked the right accomodation. Would highly highly recommend! Thank you for an incredible stay!

“Very relaxing!”

5 of 5 starsReviewed August 26, 2013

We arrived aug bank hols to a very pretty house with lovely kept gardens.the annexe entrance is through a side gate which leads to very private garden and wonderful bi-folding doors which you enter the property.Inside is so well done and also cosy you felt you were at home.very comfy bed and great shower.what made me choose this property was the fact we could stay for 2 nights as we did not have the luxury of 3 days off and many self catering property's are 3 days min.we certainly would stay again.

“Idyllic cottage close to everything the New Forest has to offer”

5 of 5 starsReviewed September 18, 2013

This is the perfect property for a visit to the new Forest - The property is beautifully presented, feels cosy and welcoming and has the additional benefit of its own private garden. It has all the modern amenities and necessities required for a very comfortable stay and Mike the owner is very helpful and knowledgeable about the area - what to see and do and where to eat. Although it is attached to the main house, guests in that part of the property did not impact on us at all during our stay. The location was ideal for accessing both the New Forest and the coast and whilst a car is necessary nothing is too far away - all in all, the perfect house in an ideal location.

“New Forest Cottage Luxury”

5 of 5 starsReviewed October 1, 2013

This cottage located in New Milton adjacent to the New Forest has been renovated to an incredibly high standard. Furnishings and decor are first class. Could not have asked for a better venue to spend the weekend with good friends. 5 rooms with double beds comfortably accommodated our group of seven.

Owner Mike is a sailing fanatic and the cottage is not a great place for unsupervised small children as there are numerous (beautiful) model ships and paintings in the house.This is also a nice quiet cul de sac so if you are looking for somewhere to throw a big weekend party away then look elsewhere. If you want a classy place to stay in complete comfort then this is your cottage.

The Area:

Please browse through as it gives a great idea of what's on our doorstep !

Beaches in the area

Avon Beach

Christchurch BH23 4AN

The main beach for Christchurch is mostly sandy with stunning views of the Needles on the Isle of Wight in the distance. There is a café, kiosks, shop and beach hire (including canoes). There are 2 car parks and in the height of the season it's advised to arrive early!


This is a stony beach with sandy areas as the tide goes out. The cliffs are subject to considerable erosion but the area is just stunning for a walk in the evening either along the beach sitting next to the waves or along the cliff top past the golf club


Cliff Road, Milford on Sea, Lymington

Highcliffe beach is a mixture of sand and stone. It can be accessed either by Highcliffe car park or via Highcliffe Castle car park. All facilities are found on the cliff top above the beach.

Mudeford Sandbank

This sandy beach adjoins Hegistbury Head with picturesque views of Christchurch Harbour. The beach is well known for its beach huts. Unlike the normal beach hut, the Mudeford ones have residential status and they're probably the most expensive fetching prices of over £140,000. The beach can only be reached by foot or bicycle (and landtrain from Hegistbury Head). We recommend the ferry from Mudeford Quay where there is good parking, but arrive early as it's a very popular spot.


Milford on Sea is a stony beach with good views of the Isle of Wight and the Needles and an excellent walk along Hurst Spit to Hurst Castle. Next to the beach is the Needle Eye cafe, an ice cream kiosk and a children's play ground. The art deco Marine Cafe on the east side of the beach has recently been rebuilt; the upstairs has excellent panoramic views. There are 3 car parks. The shops and pubs in Milford on Sea village are 500 yards away.

Hordle Cliff

Cliff Road, Milford on Sea, Lymington

A continuation of Milford on Sea (forming part of the coastal path), Hordle Cliff is a stony beach but has amazing views of the Isle of Wight and the Needles. Cliff walks are very popular with all ages and there's plenty of seating along the tar macadam paths. There are 2 car parks along the cliff top with the more westerly park having a kiosk.

Friar's Cliff

Christchurch, Dorset

This beach is mostly sand and quieter than nearby Avon Beach. The car park is at Steamer Point from where you can also enjoy a tree lined cliff top walk to Highcliffe Castle (meandering through the Steamer Point Nature Reserve).

Lepe Beach

Near Beaulieu

This beach is a 30 minute drive from the house but well worth the views and a personal favourite.The beach is at the heart of the Beaulieu river and looks out onto the Solent and Cowes.Take in Exbury gardens on the way and its a great day out.

New Forest

New Forest is an excellent insight into what's in the area

So much to do based in the heart of the forest.

The beauty of the forest behind the house is very tranquil and the allotments to look out over.

5 minutes drive and your at the coast of Barton on Sea and some wonderful hill and beach walks.The lovely town of Milford on Sea with some lovely restaurants and a great sea path walk or ride(my son and I love the bike ride around the coast).The bustling town of Lymington 10 minutes away with its saturday market.Isle of wight ferry to Yarmouth .Christchurch and Mudeford are just a short distance away as is the Chewton Glen hotel for dinner!

Brockenhurst is near by and then a beautiful forest drive over to Beaulieu ,Bucklars Hard and Exbury gardens .Lepe beach is just marvellous.

it's all on your door step!
