I cannot express enough gratitude to our host Sybil. We went last weekend on a romantic getaway and absolutely loved the place. I have no idea why some people left bad reviews, I'd say there is something wrong with them for not appreciating such a delightful place. The cottage is spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated and lovingly looked after by it's...

I must say I was a little put off by the negative reviews, as we were going to be staying here for a very special occasion. AlI can say is I cannot not see any basis for the negative comments, Angus is a friendly and well mannered black labrador and Sybil his owner is charming and extremely helpful. Pen Cottage...

Firstly I'll address the previous review which says the cottage is filthy... this is an out and out lie! It's spotlessly clean. Particularly the cutely decorated bathroom, which you do share with the owner, but you certainly wouldn't know it. I never once saw her go in there. It was so clean I was comfortable taking a bath there, which...

My Fiance & I, have just come back from Pen Cottage in Lyndurst staying for a short 3 day break. After reading all the reviews that people had wrote we went with a open mind ,especially after what had been wrote by two VERY RUDE people. The location is ideal with only been 2 minutes away from Emery Down in...

The location is gorgeous and all looked promising until we opened the garden gate. You are first met by an overgrown garden, then you enter the cottage into disgustingly dirty living room with an over-enthusiastic dog. The bedroom room looked ok, but the bathroom is shared with the owner and was filthy. Finally the dinning room had a cage of...

It's about expectations, isn't it. Elizabeth I was entering the last year of her 45 year reign as Queen of England; William Shakespeare had just finished writing Hamlet (not yet performed), when some long-forgotten person was laying the bricks and timber for Pen Cottage ... cutting the thatch. One wonders about all those who have lived in these rooms ......

It is not only love at the first sight (which definitely happens!) but also the days after that. When we got there, we couldn´t believe how beautiful the place was...Then we met the lovely old lady in charge of the cottage, and her friendly labrador, Angus. Whenever you go to the countryside, you expect less (let´s say) "perfection" than being...

From the moment we arrived outside this typical chocolate box cottage, I was delighted with our choice of accomodation. The cottage has two entrances; one of which leads in from the main road through a pretty little garden, alive with many species of birds..A birdwatcher would be in their element! I was immediately greeted by "Angus" the labrador and the...

When you first see Pen Cottage from the outside it looks just like you would expect a delightful little thatched cottage built in the early 1600's to look like, it looks absolutely wonderful. Once the door is opened the disapointment hits you with all the subtlety of a sledgehammer. You are firstly greeted by a rather largish black dog by...

Pen Cottage B&B is a 400 year old lovely thatched cottage situated on the Bournemouth Road at Swan Green just west of the village of Lyndhurst in the New Forest. The Bournemouth Road is quite busy but the cottage sits back from the road and flowers and bushes hide the road from the cottage. There is a back entrance to...
