We had everything we could possibly want in this delightful cottage. The views in the morning of the horses and foals. The positioning of the cottage to the restaraunts , shops and walks. The cottage was clean and equipped with everything you could possibly want. The added benefit of parking outside was so convenient. We would be happy to recommend to friends and hope to return soon. Thanks to Donna for lovely cake lovely lady
Excellent, prime location
By Amanda H on 20-Jul-2018
Me and my young family had an amazing stay and would highly recommend Forest View Cottage, my 5year old daughters favourite part of the holiday she said was waking up to watch the ponies outside the window! The Cottage is a short stroll into the centre of Lyndurst with pubs and restaurants and shops. We enjoyed cycle paths through the new forest and Paultons Park was brilliant for the kids. We did the scenic walk straight from the door across the field to get to Boltons Bench and walked back through the centre of Lyndhurst for a nice stroll with the kids. The cottage was fantastic, clean and tidy with everything we could need. Thank you Donna and Ramsey for letting us enjoy your holiday home, i'm sure we'll be back! Also thank you for the welcome and the lovely homemade cake, we all enjoyed it!!

We really enjoyed our stay at Forest View cottage. The cottage was exactly as we hoped: wonderful views of the forest and especially the animals and easy walking distance to visit the forest and Lyndhurst, as well as the excellent Waterloo Arms pub across the street. The cottage itself is beautifully clean and well-appointed, with enough space and dishes/glasses etc for us to comfortably host a 15 person barbecue (even champagne glasses!). Donna is lovely and her famous Victoria Sponge cake surpassed its reputation for deliciousness. What a nice touch as well to arrive to find that our temporary home was already equipped with tea & milk to enjoy with our cake. Thanks for a lovely stay in the New Forest!!
Beautiful cottage with fabulous views
By Richard P on 22-Jun-2018
We enjoyed a lovely long weekend in this beautiful cottage. The cottage itself was well appointed with plenty of room and was very tidy. There was a very nice BBQ in the back yard which we used. The views were stunning with horses and cows continuously walking by the window. The village was 5 minutes walk and well worth a visit. Well recommended.
Cosy, well equipped, accessible by public transport
By Sarah G on 22-Dec-2017
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.
Lovely place to stay

Lovely, cosy, well-equipped cottage.
By Anon on 04-Aug-2017
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
By Alison S on 25-Jul-2017
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.
Lovely cottage in a brilliant location
By Susan B on 19-May-2017
We found the cottage clean and comfortable in a lovely location on the edge of Lyndhurst with a great view including ponies and their foals. Donna was very welcoming and helpful with planning our visit with lots of information in the cottage. No hesitation in recommending to others.
Fantastic location for exploring the New Forest
By Mark H on 05-May-2017
Donna welcomed us with home baked cake and gave us some tips for the local area. The house was spotlessly clean, well equipped and perfectly located directly opposite part of the New Forest (You can watch the ponies etc directly from the living room!) and a 5 minute walk from Lyndhurst high street. The local people we had the pleasure to meet were so friendly and always had time to tell us about the livestock and the forest. Would definitely recommend and we will return in the future.
A fabulous cottage
By Anne B on 03-Oct-2016
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
By David S on 17-Sep-2016
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.
A super holiday
By Katherine H on 12-Aug-2016
The property had everything and more you could need for a break away. The views from the lounge and master bedroom were picturesque. Perfect location for walking/cycling and a short walk into Lyndhurst Will definitely return.
What a super cottage!
By Sue G on 01-Jul-2016
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.
Lovely Cottage in a great location
By Ian W on 17-Jun-2016
Well equipped cottage as described. Great central location near to Lyndhurst which has pretty much everything you need for a weeks holiday.
Great little cottage
By Martin Pickup on 27-May-2016
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.
By Simon A on 11-Mar-2016
Perfect, would love to have spent a week there.... A lovely cozy cottage with perfect views over the fields and within easy walking distance of the town of Lyndhurst. Lovely waking up to misty mornings punctuated by peaceful ponies grazing in the fields and snuggling up to a real fire in the evening. The house was immaculate, had everything we needed and the owner was very helpful, provided us with a very warm welcome (and a lovely cake!).
Charming cottage - a real gem
By Lisa Oxenham on 24-Jul-2015
I highly recommend this gorgeous cottage set in the perfect location. The cottage was very clean, had all the equipment and facilities needed and the views in the morning were idyllic. The owners were lovely and really accommodating and couldn't do enough for us to make our stay perfect. It's right in the heart of Lyndhurst but you wouldn't know it as it's slightly off the main roads. Lyndhurst itself is lovely and worth a wander. Would definitely return.
Charming cottage, perfect location!
By Andrew J. on 12-Jun-2015
A perfect cottage with a wonderful view of the New Forest and all of ponies and foals. Forest View was the ideal base for our family holiday and such a lovely spot to return to after a day of adventure! So lovely to watch the sun go down whilst watching the ponies and baby foals come and drink from the water trough. The cottage had everything we needed, very clean and well presented. We really enjoyed the Jacuzzi bath! We will be back again soon. We thoroughly recommend this lovely little cottage.
