Some guests kindly wrote a poem about their stay at Uplay Cottage:

A Poetic Farewell

Where in the world did we pray?

Could we find somewhere to get away?

We searched on the Net

And found nothing to let

At a price we were willing to pay.

Then suddenly over the wire

Came a cottage all ready to hire

Sylvan gardens so green

Were a sight to be seen

Complete with a cosy log fire.

The cottage at Uplay was fine

We've had such a jolly good time

The garden with view

Could seat quite a few

And the barbecue was sublime.

The decor Ikea inspired

Enfolded our friends who've retired

With matching duvets

Our heads we did lay

And awoke in the morning live-wired.

And now we're so full of good cheer

We'd like to return every year

Our only request

To better our rest

Could a range of sunbeds be left here?

Seven teachers all give you a tick

For such short days

These Halcyon days

Have certainly done the trick!

Thank you very much,

Sue, Jane, Kim, Madelaine, Kate, Yvonne & Pat.

The Central Southern England region

Uplay Cottage is situated in the beautiful New Forest, within walking distance of the south coast and beaches at Milford on Sea.

Such a special area, having both the Forest and the Coast so close by. Everton village has a pub with restaurant only a couple of minutes walk away, and a village shop, as well as an excellent play and fitness park for children and adults alike! Most of the New Forest is actually open forest, rather than trees, and you can walk in enormous open spaces or cycle on way marked tracks for miles without even seeing a road or car. Plenty of Walking, Cycling, Mountain biking, Sailing, Watersports and Horse Riding.

New Forest

New Forest is in the south west corner of Hampshire, bordering Dorset, between Southampton, Bournemouth and Salisbury. Easily reached from London and other areas via the M3/M27, and now with the A34 linking, the Midlands and the North are easier to get from too.
