Thanks for our fantastic holiday! We loved your fabulous home which is comfortable, full of everything we'd ever need and welcoming. If was our first time in the New Forest. We loved all the wildlife, forest walks and the great garden views! We wish you all the very best and hoping to come to the New Forest again. Many thanks

Fantastic location at the heart of the new forest. Would recommend that you take or hire bikes as there are so may cycle routes to enjoy directly from the cottage. We cycled the Balmer lawn circular, to Beaulieu and Bucklers Hard and to Burley and Rhinefield arboretum. It’s such a nice way to see the forest as well as the ponies and donkeys. The cottage is ideal for families. We had 2 families of 4 in the cottage, there was plenty of space to spread out over the 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The annex bedroom was really popular with the older children allowing them to have there own space and shower room. The kitchen is very well equipped with very beautiful hand painted china. There is an additional fridge in the garage which is perfect for wine and beer storage. We had good weather so used the outside space every day. The decking runs the length of the cottage with lots of seating so you can dine outside if the weather is nice. The trampoline in the garden is a great addition for the kids. We loved sitting outside watching the deer run across the field behind the house at dusk, while the kids enjoyed making friends with the 2 little ponies that seemed to come to the garden fence every evening. Later on we spotted bats swooping over the garden. Heather cottage is charming and lovely, I would definitely recommend it for a perfect new forest break.

“A fabulous house right in the middle of The New Forest. Beautifully furnished and equipped, right down to a stunning Christmas tree (which we really hadn’t expected - we took a small selection of Christmas decorations as we expected to be buying a small tree ourselves). Very thoughtful hosts. Terrific house in a fantastic location.
Heather Cottage was very nice accommodation (great kitchen in particular) and the location was amazing (especially for runners!). Just on the edge of some incredible paths between Brockenhurst and Lyndhurst.

We very much enjoyed it and found both the accommodation itself and the condition of the place to be lovely, and with a great location - thank you so much New Forest Escapes.
