Owner Testimonials

Thank you New Forest Escapes for such a wonderful job managing our home in our absence. Living almost 12000 miles away in New Zealand we know that our Property Guru has everything under control. The house is beautifully maintained, spotlessly clean, receives great reviews from guests and better still, when we arrive for our annual stay, we can immediately relax and enjoy being in our ‘home away from home’.

Ali, Owner of Brockwell

Brockwell - New Forest Escapes

Like anyone who wants to rent out a second home, our main concerns were would the place get trashed and would our neighbours be disturbed.
Not only have the NFE team maintained and managed our property like it was their own, they have also ensured a consistently high quality of tenant and, as if that wasn’t enough, have guided us through the minefield of marketing and legals.
The end result is we have been able to sit back and gain a healthy income, year on year.

Nigel, Owner of Sunnydell

Sunnydell Cottage - New Forest Escapes
A very thorough, professional and personal service from New Forest Escapes. They were super organised, held my hand through the process and I definitely felt glad I had chosen a local, independent company where I felt that I truly was a valued owner – not just another holiday holiday owner, one of hundreds. The whole team were super friendly and always strived to meet my needs. Ari, Owner @ Odd Ways

“We really appreciate everything you do and have done to rent out Heather Cottage. The whole team goes above and beyond. Thank you so much” Claire from Heather Cottage


We started working with New Forest Escapes in 2017, renting our home as a luxury holiday rental in the New Forest all year round. Our relationship with the team is really positive – we feel we work together as a partnership, a mutually beneficial relationship as we all work to try to get the best experience for all – most importantly great holiday stays for our guests, but also for us as the owners some profitability and for them the agents, good commission income too.
For us New Forest Escapes provides the package and service we require – being at a distance we want to be able to hand over the marketing, the promotion of the property, the booking and all guest liaison. The NFE team do this incredibly effectively. We appreciate their advice and expertise on pricing and how best to sell guest stays/use of the property.  The team are approachable and consultative, they contact us with any queries and in our experience consider options carefully from everyones angle to help us owners run their property as a business.
Ongoing communication is so important and the regular updates from NFE mean that as an owner you know the latest developments for the company and in recent times these have been essential to know how the bookings for the property are being managed. All monies and accounts are managed through the agent too – I find this invaluable and it makes my job of managing our property as my income, and as a business, so much easier.
New Forest Escapes is a forward looking, and reflective business, looking continually at how they can improve and develop their business and I’ve enjoyed engaging with this. Saying this, I feel that as they grow,  New Forest Escapes are not loosing what attracted us to using them to ‘sell our property’ in the first place – they are not loosing the essence of who they are – they are knowledgable, local, enthusiastic and want to provide holiday stays for guests that they are proud of. For us, that’s what it is all about, providing a place for families and friends to make happy holiday memories exploring and adventuring in this beautiful area of the UK, and with the help of New Forest Escapes and their team we feel Slate Cottage certainly works hard to achieve this with very pleasing success.
