"A fabulous place. Very clean, modern and comfortable with more entertainment than we could fit into our short stay. Very thoughtfully done and you'd need to bring little with you as everything is there. It was just the perfect country retreat. Easy to book and make arrangements. Thanks!"
Mrs L P, February 2013
"A delightful cottage, with plenty of charm and character. A perfect retreat for a short break in the New Forest. Louise is a friendly hostess and her welcome treat was a lovely surprise. Your level of service, from start to finish, was excellent."
Mr. I.O. April 2013, Kent
"Cottage & hosts were fabulous. Ideal, quiet location. All possible facilities all in all the perfect arrangement in the perfect location. Will revisit next year."

"We had a wonderful stay at Jenny Wrens. The cottage is bright, sunny and sumptuously furnished with everything we could want supplied. We were able to spot many species of birds whilst relaxing in the garden area. Jenny wrens is peaceful and completely private from the adjoining barn. I have already recommended JWs to my friends and look forward to visiting again.
Mrs S.F. April 2013, Surrey
"Great Location, easy to get to and explore from. We have stayed and many lodges, villas etc. and on this occasion it was the personal touch from Louise that made an enjoyable stay a wonderful memory. I had booked this as a surprise for my wife's birthday and when I called Louise to let her know when we were arriving she knew of the occasion and mentioned many places to visit and where we should eat. However it did not end there..... On arriving and entering the cottage my wife was delighted to see that Louise had baked her a birthday cake (it was also a surprise to me) it turns out she baked it the afternoon of our arrival and even used eggs from her own chickens simply as a wonderful gesture from her. If we are ever planing on visiting this area again we would have no hesitation in rebooking. Even the weather was great! Thank you."

"Everything was perfect. Couldn't fault the property, location or owners. Will look to book this cottage again in the future."
Mr. S.W. March 2013, Gloucestershire
"This is superb cottage in a beautiful and tranquil location. The cottage is furnished and equipped to a very high standard and the owners have provided just about everything you could think of. It's lovely to have the outside space too. The owners were very welcoming, providing scones, jam and clotted cream on arrival, but also allowed us full privacy. I cannot recommend this cottage highly enough."
Mrs S.W., Surrey. May 2013
"One of the best cottages we have ever had in almost fifty bookings. The owners were very friendly and welcoming. We were impressed with the cleanliness and attention to detail. A really lovely place and we had a lovely holiday."
