"Beautiful cottage in a good location"

We spent two weeks in this beautiful holiday cottage, which is nicely situated to discover the New Forest and other nice places on the southern coast. The cottage is well equiped and beautifully decorated - it is really "home from home". Our children loved playing in the nice garden. Thanks to Liz for her hospitality and the perfect welcome hamper!

"perfect home from home"

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the house was very spacious, well presented and ideal for our family and dog. The hamper waiting for us on our arrival was a lovely addition, we enjoyed it so much we visited the local farm shop where the produce was from! It's ideally situated in a quiet road, within walking distance of a large tesco with everything you need. The garden is brilliant if you have a dog and was great to have the use of a BBQ with everything we needed to get it started. We would definitely recommend this house and would love to stay here again in the future.

"Great Accommodation in the New Forest"

We stayed in Inglewood Cottage for a weekend break at the end of November 2013. We found the cottage to be extremely comfortable and equipped with all the little things that make a house a home. We spent Saturday walking round the coastal path and on Sunday we paid a visit to Peppa Pig World - much to the delight of our three year old granddaughter!
We would thoroughly recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a place to stay in the New Forest.

"Great house for New Year break!"

We booked this property for a New Year break with friends and our two small children (18m & 2 years) and it proved to be a great house and a comfortable base for us. The house was a good layout and spacious for all of us and immaculately clean. You can walk to the village centre for any amenities but we mostly drove to other places and pubs when we ventured out. New Milton is ok but there isn't much there and there are much prettier villages to explore which you would need to drive to. Liz provides a lovely basket of goodies - the cookies are delicious! The kitchen is great if you are cooking during your break which we did a fair amount. The house also has good board games and dvds for quieter days when the weather isn't so good, which we experienced a lot over this Christmas..! All in all we had a lovely time and couldn't fault the property.
