We were very impressed with the the property, although it was only tiny it had everything you could wish for and our hosts had really thought of all the little extras to make it a memorable experience. We were able to take our French bulldog with us as small dogs were welcome and also had a safe enclosed area outside which was perfect.

Julie was a wonderful host. Her little beach stufle cabin was in the perfect location for what I wanted. The cabin was spacious, clean & cosey. I couldnt recommend this place more. It will be the place I stay the next time I head to the New Forest.

This is a lovely property, beautifully done and spotlessly clean. Ideal for visiting the local area. However I cannot recommend for a dog as we found the wooden floor, small patio area and the narrow road with no footpaths were problematic. Having said that it is very quiet and comfortable and ideal for a couple, it has everything you need. I thinkRead more anybody with mobility issues would also find the small bathroom difficult to access. Hosts were friendly, helpful and discrete Hide
