"Perfect for the family"
The house is ideal for a young family outside of the summer, providing a safe and spacious environment for them to play in and plenty of room for sleep.
The house is comfortable and well placed… More

"Great mini break"
An ideal base for the New Forest & surrounding area. The cottage was very spacious with everything we needed and was very clean. We didn't get to spend a great deal of time there as we were down for a family wedding.

We arrived a bit worn on the Saturday as the traffic into Lyndhurst was horrendous! 1 hour to do 4 miles! I presume it was because it was changeover day and it was a lovely hot, sunny day. But after all that, When we arrived we were very happy with our 'home' for the week! We were a party consisting of myself and hubby, our 4 yr old, our 2 teenage kids (boy & girl) and nanny! Nanny had the bedroom downstairs, and we all had a room to ourselves upstairs. The 2 grownup kids had a double room each, so no squabbles, our 4 yr old had the bunk room and we had the most wonderful master with ensuite. There was enough room for everyone to 'escape' when they wanted. Very comfortable place. Only slight drawback was the garden, it was small and kids couldn't play out there very well. But having said that, they took full advantage of the games table! The road took a little getting used to as we live in the middle of nowhere (we only get the odd tractor), so the noise was new to us, but we soon got used to it. Location wise, we couldn't have had better. The High Street was just around the corner.
All in all a great holiday had by all. Totally recommend!

"Lovely cottage in a great location"
WE stayed at Spring Cottage with our two young children for a week. We were lucky to have fabulous weather - which meant we could spend lots of time on the nearby beaches.
Spring cottage is in an extremely convenient location. Just a short walk away from the centre of Lyndhurst and a short drive away from all the New Forest attractions such as Peppa Pig world (!), the coast and all the lovely walks.
The cottage itself is very roomy, bright, clean and has a great layout. It is equipped with everything you'd need - like a home from home. We had a fantastic time and we'd definitely go back.

"Well-appointed, modern house, with town centre convenience."
We were an extended family group of 11, including two children aged 3 and 8, and a baby of 8 months. The place was spick and span, and generally well-equipped: any omissions were minor and didn't really affect our stay.
The house is in central Lyndhurst, and on a main road going through. However, the road impinged very little on our enjoyment of the property (although the weather meant we didn't spend any time in the garden space). The advantage of the location was that we never needed to use our cars: the centre (with shops and restaurants) is within easy walking distance, and we walked to a local pub for Sunday lunch. The children were safe from the main road.
The house has separate living, dining and play rooms, which meant we could split up and avoid getting on each other's nerves. There is a lockable garage and a useful garden shed. We parked four cars (they advertise space for three).
The bathroom provision worked well for us. There are steps down to the living room and dining room which would be awkward for wheelchair users. Everyone said the beds were very comfortable. It was an easy place to stay.

"Fantastic Stay at Spring Cottage!"
We have just got back from a week in Lyndhurst, staying at Spring Cottage. The house is only a five minute walk from the high street and you couldn't ask for anything more in the house. Plenty of space and child friendly, our 20month old daughter also had a great time.
If you have children we can certainly recommend Longdown Activity Farm which is a 10minute drive and within 10 minutes walk there is a great playground. Also lovely to see the ponies roaming free at Bolton's bench.
There are also plenty of nice tea house, cafes and pubs and La Pergola Italian restaurant was a great find.
Would certainly recommend Lyndhurst and would go back to spring cottage.

"Fantastic Accomodation in a Great Location"
We spent four nights at Spring Cottage over the Easter Break. There were 10 of us altogether, 6 adults and 4 children (under 8 years of age). We had a brilliant time. On arrival the cottage was spotlessly clean and tidy and the heating had been turned on so it was lovely and cosy (which was surprising for such a spacious property). The fact that it is so spacious is also a plus point as we didn't feel that we were "on top of each other".
The location of Spring Cottage was great - under 5 minutes to walk to the town and a great base for touring the area.
Would recommend and will be booking a break there again!

"Fantastic Cottage, Perfect Location"
We stayed at Spring Cottage over Easter Weekend. There were 9 of us altogether, 6 adults and 3 young children. We had an absolutely fantastic time. Perfect Location, only a few minutes' walk into Lyndhurst Main Street. Bolton Bench was about 10 min walk away, which was really nice to see all the ponies. The cottage is lovely, spacious, clean and comfortable and with their being 9 of us we didn't feel cramped. Well equipped also. Sharon has been fantastic also, nothing seemed too much. The only problem was, we wished we had stayed for the week. So we will hopefully be staying their again further on in the year. :-)
