Why Diane Battrick chose New Forest

Poona Cottage is a delightful self catering cottage, finished to a very high standard both inside and out. It sleeps up to 6 people and is situated on the edge of the New Forest. With its original oak beams it has lots of olde worlds charm, but has a modern twist. Poona is situated in the village of Cadnam, which is about 5 miles from Lyndhurst, the capital of the New Forest. Which is about a two minute drive from the M27, which means the cottage is very accessible when arriving and is very easy should you wish to travel to numerous destinations when you arrive.

What makes this cottage unique

Poona Cottage is detached and has a lovely closed off patio giving you complete privacy. There is also a large front garden for the children to run around in. Poona is completely self contained, and comes complete with fresh laundry and soft towels. You can say in and cook, or if you prefer there is a lovely pub about two minutes across the road, with several others within walking distance. Poona Cottage is a 5 minute drive from Paultons Park, the home of Peppa Pig.

great choice!

  • 5 of 5

A very well equipped, immaculate and comfortable cottage which could not be better placed - so handy for exploring either the countryside or the coast and with some lovely walks from the cottage itself. Good friendly pubs with good food within walking distance which was an important factor. Diane was a good friendly host just checking our safe arrival and ensuring our stay had been successful.

Immaculate Inside - Beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable stay in April. The cottage was wonderful. The photos of the inside really do not do justice to the place as every room was beautifully decorated and the layout is very clever to make use of all of the space. The courtyard makes a nice sun trap in the afternoon. Just across the road is a nice pub that does very good food. Well situated on the edge of the New Forest for the attractions. The owner was very helpful when booking and the communication with us was very good.

terrific accomadation

  • 5 of 5

a great place to stay and we all had a lovely time

diane was great a meet and greet but not obtrusive which is a difficult line to balance

im certain she will not mind that i mention the patio door lock was sticky but in the midst of my battle with it she arrived to rescue a poor australian and i was seriously impressed when she contacted me about the return of my deposit something i had forgotten about entirely probably due to jet lag!

seriously a fantastic stay and a pleasure to deal with

Poona Cottage is a wonderful place to stay in a fabulous location close to Southampton, The New Forest, Beaulieu and lots of pubs of which the nearest to the house served wonderful food. The house was top notch with everything you need and more, it was immaculately clean, in a most beautiful location and very near to our destination at Beaulieu House were we spent a fine weekend at the Auto jumble. The owners were most accommodating and were able to take our booking at very short notice and were most helpful and friendly on arrival. We would liked to have stayed for longer but I will definitely be back but for my next stay I will bring the wife and children. Thank you.

Superb cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a long weekend at Poona Cottage and enjoyed it immensely. It was home from home with everything you could possibly need. The cottage is beautifully fitted out and very clean. The location is good for visiting the New Forest as well as Southampton and Portsmouth too. There are some good places to eat nearby. We will certainly be returning and next time maybe we will stay for longer!
