Wonderful, quiet, rural 1 bedroom cottage with hottub

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing weekend at the Bothy. Great welcome with Prosecco, cakes, milk, bread, butter and orange juice. Chris, the owner, popped in to make sure we had everything we needed. We didn't see him or his wife Chrissy for the rest of the weekend but we knew they were more than willing to help if needed. We had a therapist come in and give us treatments in the cottage which was great. The hottub was brilliant and relaxing. The wood burner made the cottage very cosy too. We went for a lovely walk just down the road straight into the New Forest. Awesome! Long walk and then lunch in the Forresters Arms in Frogham. We have come home feeling wonderfully relaxed and chilled. Thank you!

Excellent Accommodation in a Terrific Location

  • 5 of 5

The Bothy is an absolutely brilliant choice for a break in the New Forest. It is well equipped and in a great location on the edge of the forest. The hot tub is a bonus.

Owners are pleasant and very helpful and it was a nice surprise to find a bottle of wine, home made cakes, a loaf and other items provided on our arrival.

Local pubs are within easy walking distance of The Bothy and cycle hire is available a short distance away. Overall a great place to stay.

Excellent cottage for couples wanting peace and quiet.

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully presented property with lots of added extras, which were most appreciated. Chris & Chrissy were very welcoming hosts. Fabulous location on the edge of the New Forest, from which we explored the beautiful countryside and frequented several lovely picturesque pubs offering excellent food.

2 Days of pure relaxation

  • 5 of 5

This little cottage is a perfect place to spend a few days (or longer). From when we first arrived to be greeted inside with fresh bread .milk and butter and home made cakes to when we left we had everything we needed for a break for two. The hot tub in the garden is lovely especially nice in the evening under the stars,our hosts were very welcoming and were always available if needed .

We will certainly recommend The Botty to friends and family and would love to some day return ourselves
