Highly recommended by one and all. We hope to return next year. Hide

I booked Forest Corner for my 50th birthday week - to experience life living in the New Forest. Perfect location for a family weekend. The house is just wonderful in so many ways. Well appointed bedrooms (my father has MS so the downstairs room was perfect) and spacious accommodation for socialising. The kitchen was so well equipped - biscuits and Read moreother provisions left for us was a lovely touch. Driving back to the house each day from work was a tonic. Will definitely be returning. Hide

We stayed at Forest Corner for a short autumn break - two families and three generations. Everyone in the party loved the internal layout, the decoration, furnishing and appointment of the house - it worked really well to help create a relaxing and fun weekend. And the Fighting Cocks is just a small stagger away, as are some very good New Forest waRead morelks. We were sorry to leave and would definitely recommend this as a great getaway for a fair sized party. Hide

It was just perfect. There were 8 adults and a baby and the house was just lovely. We didn't realise everything we needed would be there, washing up liquid, toilet rolls, games, umbrellas. Effortless, the ladies I spoke to at your offices were very friendly.
