"Perfect holiday home"

We had such an amazing stay at Bracken cottage. The location was beautiful and the cottage was spacious, cosy, comfortable and had all the amenities you would require. It was also sparkling clean everywhere, from the bedrooms to the kitchen. The owner was also extremely helpful and made us feel very welcome. We loved staying at Bracken Cottage and would recommend it to anyone. We hope to stay again in the near future.

"Lovely cottage, beautiful location, very helpful owners, highly recommend."

The cottage is just as described, right on the edge of the New Forest,over looking it from the front. It's done out beautifully inside and is very warm and comfortable.

"True English country experience - relaxed and full of nature"

I stayed at Bracken Cottage over Christmas and it was unforgettable experience. First thing we saw on Christmas morning were wild ponies and donkeys coming up to the fence of the cottage. And though I wouldn't recommend coming up too close and touching them, they make your holiday. Recommend to drive 10 minutes to Burley village, famous for it's witches - nice views, good to have lunch there and plenty of cute souvenir shops. The cottage itself is warm and comfortable, all green around. Half-an-hour drive to the sea side. A wonderful weekend getaway!
