***** Beautifully refurbished for 2021 ***** This cosy cottage in Lyndhurst offers one double and one twin bedroom, (with the option to become a kingsize bed) there is also space for either a fold out bed for a child (up to 12 years) or a cot. The cottage has been beautifully modernised with bright rooms and ample space for a family or friends. An open fire allows you to snuggle up in winter while watching ponies from the window, creating a relaxing holiday atmosphere. The views of the forest are ever changing, with the comings and goings of ponies, donkeys & cows that will come to drink from the water trough just opposite your holiday cottage. By the end of the week you will recognise the 'regulars' with their foals and may catch glimpses of deer in the evening and early mornings.

Forest View cottage is the perfect based for either a relaxing break or a fun filled adventure in the New Forest. Being walking distance to everything you need, you can explore without a car using the New Forest tour bus (June to September)www.thenewforesttour.info, walking or cycling on the 200km of cycle tracks. Lyndhurst village offers a variety of independent shops and boutiques, vintage shopping, as well as a supermarket, butchers and fishmongers. Eating out is well catered for wander into Lyndhurst and choose from Italian, Chinese, India or Thai cuisine. Or maybe a traditional home cooked meal from one of the many Forest pubs within the village are more appealing; enjoy the lovely beer gardens in summer or cosy fireplaces in the winter. The cottage has every creature comfort to make your stay easy and relaxing. You can venture far and return to a cosy fire in the winter or relaxing Jacuzzi bath to ease out tired muscles. Alternatively for the less active or those simply wanting to enjoy the atmosphere, enjoy watching the ponies from the window with a lovely cup of tea and piece of cake. Maybe stroll up into Lyndhurst village for afternoon tea followed by some vintage shopping and browse around the independent shops. Don't forget a few moments dreaming in the Ferrai and Maserati show room and a trip to the old fashioned sweet shop! Before returning for a traditional home cooked meal at The Waterloo Arms pub, just a 2 min stroll from the cottage. Lyndhurst is in the centre of the New Forest and therefore it is easy to reach all parts of the Forest, whether is be lovely beaches (20 mins), The New Forest Museum (10 min walk), Lymington Quay (15 mins), Beaulieu National Motor Museum ( 15mins) or Peppa Pig World at Paultons Park (15mins)More

In the centre of the New Forest and with everything you need close to hand. Changing view of the forest right in front of you. Great place to stay.

We loved our stay at Forest View. It is a 2 bedroomed cottage with a fabulous view of ponies and cattle freely coming and going, enjoying life in the Forest. The cottage is small and cosy. It is very well equipped with a fabulous shower and jacuzzi bath in the downstairs bathroom. It has a sunny courtyard garden with garden furniture and a mini summer house, perfect for relaxing with a book and glass of wine! Donna has provided a booklet with information about local areas of interest, forest walks, restaurant etc - Very Useful. Fresh flowers and a delicious cake was a lovely, very welcome addition that was much appreciated. Lyndhurst is a lovely town which we enjoyed exploring but it has a traffic issue with ++ congestion at peak times. We had a lovely holiday. Thank you Donna

Took a chance on this cottage as there didn't seem to be any up to date reviews. I am so glad I did! It is in a fabulous location - the view out of the living and main bed room is just lovely, I enjoyed watching the horses and cows. Really great position for walking which is what we wanted. A very short walk to the town. When we arrived there was a bit of a musty smell, but many signs asking to have windows open. We kept the little windows open all the time and it soon freshened up. I booked for the real fire but it was so hot we didn't use it, we did however use the summerhouse and garden which we loved, very lovely spot to sit, enjoy the sun and some wine. The whole house was just fab, spotlessly clean. The oven looked like it had never been used. I would warn that the stairs are a bit steep and one side is open, I'm clumsy and I coped but it is something to be aware of. We were provided with a home baked cake and some milk on arrival - thank you, a lovely touch. My yardstick of a holiday home is always would I want to live there, it was a resounding yes! I am hoping to book again for later in the year when we can enjoy the fire! Highly recommend.

Forest View is beautiful little house which is perfectly placed in front of a part of the New Forest. Donna, the owner, met us on our arrival and gave us some useful pointers to the area as a lovely cake which she had baked. The town centre with its pubs and shops is a five minute walk away as well as a supermarket. The house was equipped with everything we needed and the views take some beating. Each day we saw a combination of ponies, horses, cattle, donkeys, deer and foxes - all directly in front of us. One day we counted 65 animals. To cap everything we were made to feel very welcome and were taken aback by the friendliness of all of the local people, including our neighbours Sue, B and most of all the wonderful Alan. We will definitely be returning - highly recommended.
