About Donna Neseyif

We love our holidays as this is when we manage to spend quality time together, having fun and building happy memories. It therefore seemed sensible for us to buy a holiday home as over the years we believe we have learnt what is needed for a great holiday.

We have travelled the world, but love returning to the beautiful New Forest. We moved to Ashurst in 2000 and have enjoyed exploring the ancient woodlands, local villages and attractions with our 3 boys.

We work in the New Forest and enjoy regularly walking and cycling around the Forest enclosures. Our sons have been brought up close to nature learning about the seasons while hiking through the Forest looking for fungi, climbing trees with friends, building dens and starting their own adventure with the great outdoors.

Donna Neseyif purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Donna Neseyif chose Lyndhurst

We bought Forest View cottage in 2010 after the whole family fell in love with the fabulous view from the cottage over the Forest lawn and visiting ponies.

The attraction to our boys aged 11, 9 and 7 at the time, was the adventure of the Forest, rope swings, streams and building dens!

To Ramsey and Donna being at Forest View cottage really feels like you are away from it all, yet you are only a few minutes’ walk from Lyndhurst village and the great range of shops and restaurants, old fashioned sweet shop and Ferrari garage.

We set about fully renovating and cottage whilst retaining the many character feature. Today the property is light and airy with luxury fittings and comforts throughout.

What makes this cottage unique

We find Forest View simply a great place to unwind and spend quality time together.

If you want the hubbub of the beaches and villages of the New Forest then they are on your doorstep, if not you have all you need for a great week away spending time together and getting close to nature at Forest View cottage.

We enjoy all seasons at Forest View watching the new foals frolicking in spring, picnics in summer, searching for fungi and watching the pigs graze the Forest in autumn, and snuggling up round the fire after a long crisp walk in winter.

With Lyndhurst’s great range of little shops just a few minutes’ walk away and the Golf course even closer there is something for everyone!

We hope you enjoy your time here as much as we do.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Such a lovely cottage and a joy to come back to at the end of the day. Lovely views and walks on the doorstep and lots to do in the village, great location. We have fallen in love with the New Forest - just beautiful !

I could write an essay on this gem of a cottage and what the New Forest has to offer. It will be difficult to leave it all behind, but when I return home, I will try to visualise the view as I lay in my bed. A brilliant place to stay.

Wonderful cottage with fantastic views, very well located and convenient. Visited many places during our stay and caught up with old friends. We enjoyed our walk amongst the ponies and lovely to be able to light a fire at the end of the day.

We loved the cottage, so beautifully done and well equipped and in a brilliant location. Great recommendation of Lepe Beach, wonderful day out. Peppa Pig world was a highlight along with Beaulieu Motor Museum and the foals opposite the cottage.

Cosy, well equipped,accessible by public transport

  • 5 of 5

We (2 adults and 2 children) have just finished our 2 week Christmas stay at Forest View whilst I worked at The Nuffield Theatre. It was perfect for us ; open fire, views of countryside and ponies, plenty to do and easily accessible by public transport (we don't run a car).

The kids made use of the games cupboard on rainy days and enjoyed stomping around in the mud and meeting the ponies. I really enjoyed waking up and seeing green and ponies (a good antidote to our usual London street view!) before catching a bus into Southampton. There are, of course, plenty of walks and bike tracks (bike hire in the village) - we hope to make more use of them on a return trip!

Donna was very welcoming, helpful and on hand if there were any problems. The cottage had everything we needed and was really lovely to stay in.

Geographically it is really well placed and you could easily get to all sorts of places with a car. Even so, without one, there are still buses down to Lymington and easy to get a train from Ashurst or Brockenhurst or Southampton out to other places. On New Year's day we were on Avon & Mudeford beaches - just 25 mins away by car.

The Waterloo Arms, just across the road, was a very welcoming family friendly pub for food and a roaring fire (my daughter was delighted that it looked like the Gryffindor Common Room!). Also, The Fox and Hounds on the high street was a nice place to pop in for an early evening drink as a family. We had a great curry delivered to the house (I think it was The Curry Leaf - can't remember!) and there are LOTS of little eateries in the village. The village looked delightful all lit up at Christmas and was very exciting for our children.

We hope to return again, when we're not working, to make full use of the lovely walks and bike rides.

Thanks Donna.

We were very impressed with Forest View cottage. The cottage was very cosy in a lovely location. The description was accurate and we found the cottage to be very clean and well-equipped.

We had a lovely welcome from Donna which included some recommendations of where to go and a delicious cake!

The surrounding area was beautiful, with a couple of family-friendly pubs just a short walk away.

We would highly recommend Forest View.

Lovely cottage in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Forest View. The cottage was very comfortable, and the view of the ponies and other animals from the lounge was really special. It is in a great position on the edge of the village, just a five minute walk to the High Street. We would love to visit again, and will recommend to friends and family.

This was a lovely, clean and well furnished cottage overlooking a field full of ponies. The owner was really welcoming and offered recommendations on what to do in the area.
