My partner and I have just returned from a New Forest weekend break. The Loft proved to be perfect accommodation being on the outskirts of Brockenhurst but with all facilities within an easy walk. Even better the local pub was very nearby. The Loft itself is very clean and well equipped and provided a wonderful base from which to explore.
The loft is a very clean, bright yet cost space to stay. It's location makes it an ideal base for walking and although we didn't take our dog with us, it is dog friendly. We only met Steve as Amanda was away. We were made very welcome and the owners are on site yet we were completely private.
All mod cons are included, a wide variety of lighting options and plenty of games and books for leisure time.
It does run parallel to a main road and it seems like the owners run a business from the site making it a bit noisy at times but this didn't take away from our enjoyment of the loft or the area. There are a wealth of places to visit nearby and good pubs a plenty. The Filly Inn is a 2 minute walk from the property and is friendly but my personal favourite for atmosphere and value is The Snakecatcher in Brockenhurst. You must give Rosie Leas tea room and the garden centre a visit too.
For me, there were just a few things missing that would've given it a full 5 star rating. I missed seeing a clock! There didn't seem to be any oven pans apart from the grill pan and to be honest the oven could do with a clean. Sundries like kitchen roll, foil and cling film would've been handy to have as well as a pint of milk in the fridge. I know it's an awkward space but a small dining area would be nice to have too. Don't get me wrong none this spoiled our trip they are small things that would have enhanced and I would stay again. Thank you Steve and Amanda!

Near to a lovely pub and next to a range of lovely walks. The family who run the place were extremely welcoming and helpful. The facilities at the place were great. There were many helpful recommendations of where to go. We couldn't have asked for more.
