Set in the perfect location, quiet and not completely out in the wilderness. The cottage was supremely clean, well equipped and had everything we were looking for. The garden was perfect for our dog with secure fencing around the property. Would love to come back during the summer as I can imagine it being even better.

Fantastic holiday cottage for two in a great location with the New Forest on the doorstep. Everything required for a comfortable stay is provided. The owners have gone out of their way to provide more than the basic welcome pack. Would certainly recommend.

Jobber's Retreat was really nice. The bed was so comfortable and the fact that it had an enclosed garden was just the ticket. We were amazed at how well stocked the cupboards were. We had glorious weather which made the holiday really great and the area was a pleasure to explore.

This is a fantastic place to stay and has everything you need. It is in a great location for enjoying the New Forest and beyond. It is on a quiet main road and is located well away from the road (no noise issues), but the road does not have footpaths if you are walking from the property, although within 200 meters paths are available. The owners liRead moreve right next door and do not bother you at all, but are always available should you need them. We will have no hesitation to use this property again. Hide

If you’re after a holiday destination which has natural wonders and British tradition in abundance, look no further than the New Forest – a region where beautiful heathland, forest trails and stunning coastline surround quaint villages and market towns.

The National Park is found on England’s south coast, covering the south west of Hampshire but extending into Wiltshire and Dorset. It’s known for its picturesque footpaths and cycle trails, from which you can witness the spectacular sights of deer, ponies and cattle roaming free throughout the ancient woodland.

The villages of Lyndhurst, Brockenhurst and Buckler’s Hard have plenty of traditional, cosy pubs in which you can enjoy some locally-brewed cider or beer. Or, if you wanted something a little livelier, Hythe, Lymington and New Milton run fantastic weekly markets, while the lively city of Southampton is a drive away.

If you prefer coast over country, a visit to the shoreline is a must. Highlights include the Barton-on-Sea cliffs, Lymington Quay, and the Beaulieu River, where adventurous activities including canoeing await. There are plenty of other great things to do, too, with the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu, Breamore House and Museum near Fordingbridge, and Exbury Gardens all found around the region.
