“Very comftable house situated in a brilliant position for Coast and Forrest.”
Reviewed 17 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We rented for 3 nights. There were 3 adults, 1 19 month year old and 2 dogs. Everything was clean and welcoming, the added provision of tea milk and wine was very welcome. Very spacious and relaxing. Good secure garden for the dogs. Very quiet area, even the meandering cows and ponies, gave out chilled vibes...... Pubs just down road, and although we didn't eat, the early evening drink proved they had friendly atmospheres. The aga proved a challenge, but only because I didn't read the instructions! Luckily I took a man that did, and all became good. Kitchen very well equipped, which was great. The bathroom was good and although shower head handle was broken, was still useable and good power (but again I failed to read instructions, and first one very weak, again husband to rescue, there's a booster switch on landing, it's a good job I took him) I have only 2 disappointments, but not enough to stop me returning, the heating system overnight was noisy (but baby slept through) and radiator in double room not working, so that room very chilly. All in all, I will only have pleasant memories of this visit, and would recommend this to anyone that wants a quiet, clean, comftable and well equiped house, in New Forrest and 15 minutes drive to a very nice beach. One last thought if you're taking a toddler I have to say the stair gate had bit missing, hopefully it will be replaced, but I would check with owner it's been down, as stairs were a bit of a worry, when we were upstairs.

Of course we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay so much but thank you in particular for mentioning the few items you had more difficulty with. We are awaiting a replacement shower attachment and can only offer our apologies that the 'running repair' didn't work as well as expected! The heating usually only gets noisy when the cast iron of the Aga is responding to being turned on / off but this can be avoided by adjusting the pump timer. The bedroom radiators are on individual thermostatic controls so the one you refer to may have been turned off by a previous Visitor, but we will check it out to ensure it is no more serious than that. Finally the stair gate will get replaced immediately because it is so important for families so thank you again for pointing it out. Such feedback is important to us and your comments have been valued.

“very comfortable, idyllic”
Reviewed 23 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Very well equipped, warm and welcoming, yet not so immaculate that you were afraid to relax and enjoy.
Beautiful location handy for the New Forest and the coast.
Loved using the Aga , am converted !
Walking distance to two very welcoming pubs and an excellent riding stable.
Will definitely book again, thanks for having us.

Thank you for taking the time to send in your review - always greatly appreciated. Being so close to the wonderful Village of Burley with such excellent pubs/inns is so nice when you want a rest from cooking or come home tired after exploring the wonderful Forest. All the pubs/inns are so family and pet friendly too which is great for our Visitors who enjoy experiencing all the fabulous walks around us. We are so lucky to have Brackenwood so ideally situated.

“Great cottage , good size , excellent amenities , ideal location”
Reviewed 15 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Burley is a very good central location to trip around New Forest. Local bike hire was excellent and reasonable price , with superb bike trails. Good walks. Barton on sea worth a visit and Hythe. A very good size 2 bed cottage , with great amenities and right by forest and village.

“Lovely, spacious cottage with great facilities”
Reviewed 19 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We had a great week in this cottage. The cottage was lovely and spacious for the 4 of us (2 adults and 2 children) with great facilities. We were lucky to have sunshine every day - the location of Burley is excellent. Lovely walks from the cottage door, two nice pubs to eat out in the evening and ideal for exploring other areas of the New Forest. Wi-fi was a bonus in the cottage!
