This was our second stay at Claire's Cottage and, once again we found it to be a perfect place in which to unwind and relax. The log burner created a warm and welcoming environment during a very wet weather stay.

A beautiful cottage in a fantastic location right in the middle of the New Forest. Very clean and nice touches like wine and biscuits. We had an excellent stay and would certainly return.

What a find in the heart of New Forest. Delightful small cottage on 3 levels in Emery Down just outside Lyndhurst. It is only for 2 people -and in our case also our little dog- so was absolutely perfect for us. It is extremely well presented, clean and tidy. It has underfloor heating downstairs but heats the whole cottage, so when we came back homeRead more wet and cold, that was very welcome. The bathroom is quite small - but functional. The cottage is very well positioned for touring the New Forest. Hide

This cottage is lovely. It is very convenient for exploring the New Forest. We were very impressed with this well equipped comfortable cottage. The garage was really useful to store our bicycles. The cottage is situated near good pubs and not far from Lyndhurst. A great cottage for a couple.

Lovely clean and well equipt cottage with a fully enclosed garden for dogs. Perfect location for walks into the New Forest and good pubs in every direction. Take the longer walk to Lyndhurst via the path and narrow country lane at the end of the lane. Stop at the Waterloo pub on the way back. Also the walk to the Oak at Bank is good. The friendly pRead moreonies gave us a nice welcome most days when we returned at the end of the day. A short drive to many walking trails as well. Hide

The location was excellent, plenty of walks for humans as well as dogs. Lyndhurst was 15 mins from the cottage but there were also a few indirect very pleasant walks you could take? Accommodation was correct in every way. Very snug and cosy with views over the forest.
