Description from owner


Plover Cottage is over 200 years old and was completely refurbished in 2016. We have recently been voted Most Dog Friendly Self Catering Cottage in the New Forest 2018. The cottage has two double bedrooms and a shower room on the first floor and kitchen, living room and dining area downstairs. We have a lovely courtyard garden which is a real sun trap and is ideal for eating breakfast in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening. We were awarded a Gold Award by Quality in Tourism in 2016 and we welcome dogs and walkers to the cottage.The cottage is ideally located in the heart of Milford on Sea, five minutes walk from the beach and with shops and pubs in the village there is no need to venture further afield if you don't want to. The New Forest is the perfect place for walking, cycling and with bird watching on the door step, alternatively just relax on the beaches and in the village of Milford on Sea. ** A small development of 8 cottages is being built on land to the rear of the cottage. Our prices are reduced to take account of this and we are happy to give further details of the work if contacted**

“Lovely small cottage”

Reviewed 18 Apr 2019

We had a lovely stay in Plover Cottage, great location and well set up for a small family plus dog. Only negative is that there’s a large construction site at the back of the property which was a bit noisy at times.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a review, it is always appreciated. We are sorry that the construction site was noisy during your stay. Although we do make guests aware that there is building work ongoing, and our prices are reduced accordingly, we cannot always let guests know exactly what is going on because the builders don’t inform us of the schedule week by week. We are though really pleased you liked the cottage and Milford in general. We hope you will consider coming back for another stay in the future. All the best Jane and Stephen

“Beautiful,cosy, dog friendly cottage”

Reviewed 7 Apr 2019

Ideal location for sight seeing the beautiful area, ie the forest & the coast. The cottage is spotlessly clean & has everything you could wish for, loved the extras, like bathrobes, dog towels & treats for our little pooch. The town of Milford on sea has all the amenities you could want, places to eat, friendly pubs serving great food, general stores, & much more. We thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend there. We shall return.

Owner's reply: Thank you, we have worked hard on our little doggy corner and hope they enjoy the treats! We hope to welcdo me you back soon.
