This is the 2nd time we have stayed at Clares and would definitely stay again. The cottage is ideally placed for walks straight from the door and The New Forest Inn which is less than 5 minutes walk from the cottage is fantastic both for food and drink and is extremely dog friendly. The cottage is small but perfectly formed! It has everything you nRead moreeed to have a lovely stay, including underfloor heating which was needed on our very wet & muddy stay & the log burner made it warm & cosy evenings. Hide
