About the Owner

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.

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.

A fabulous cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cottage. It was really nice meeting Donna to start the holiday; and we loved her home made cake. The cottage is really well designed, comfortable, cosy and very clean. It has lots of nice touches, such as extra blankets for snuggling in front of the TV! There's also lots of useful local information. The kitchen is very well equipped and the bathroom is great. The views are fantastic and it's a nice quiet spot. You can walk into the Forest in 30 seconds, yet it's close to the centre of Lyndhurst. We're already looking forward to our next stay.

Great little cottage

  • 5 of 5

Forest View is a terrific little cottage in an ideal location for exploring the New Forest. It was clean and had everything you need for an enjoyable stay.

The views from the lounge and front bedroom are stunning as they overlook the forest with ponies, cattle and donkeys coming and going daily in front of the cottage.

We enjoyed a good meal at the White Rabbit pub just around the corner and the centre of Lyndhurst is only a short walk away.

The owner, Donna, met us on arrival and was very friendly and helpful – even providing us with a delicious homemade cake! The cottage has a small rear courtyard garden where we sat and enjoyed a piece of the cake with a cup of tea.

We would definitely recommend this cottage and hope to return.

What a super cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is a real find! We have been coming to the New Forest for many years and this is the best Cottage we have come across. It has everything you need for a wonderful holiday - it has been well planned and is beautifully presented. The view from the cottage window is stunning and we never tired of watching the comings and goings of the forest ponies, cows and donkeys - one morning we counted 65!!

The whole process from initial enquiry to the quick return of the security deposit was easy, friendly and professional. We will definitely be back! Thank you also to Donna for all of the useful local information - and the yummy cake on arrival! We definely recommend this cottage.

Great little cottage

  • 5 of 5

Had a super stay. The cottage was clean, nicely furnished and had everything we needed. It's a short walk into the centre of Lyndhurst or you can take the scenic walk through woodland and over heath land (wild pony watching) which is great with children. Donna was friendly and welcoming on arrival, and happy to help with any questions. The area is beautiful - great trails, woodland and towns and villages. We also headed to the coast on a couple of days (only 15-20 mins drive) to enjoy the weather and discovered some great beaches. Took the ferry across to Mudeford Sands (lovely beach) and went fossil finding at Highcliffe (another nice beach!). No problem in recommending this cottage.

Location

From the Owner

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.

Facilities

From the Owner

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.
