We live in Dubai but come from the UK. We have family all over so our stay at Spring Cottage was meant as somewhere we could all get together for the New Year before we flew home and it was perfect for that.

Great bedrooms and bathrooms/WC (although the locks weren't working on any, which can be quite awkward with guests - Small issue, though). The bath upstairs is huge and was my refuge from the rest of the family when I needed some peace and quiet!

The cottage is in a brilliant location for access to Lyndhurst via foot. A ten minute stroll gets you onto the High Street, where cafes, restaurants, takeaways and gift shops can be found.

Spring Cottage is also well located for short drives to beautiful countryside and the south coast.

Sadly the situation of the cottage doesn't lend itself to great views and the road outside can get very busy. However, this only tends to be a problem when getting in and out of the driveway. Again, not much of a negative. I slept in the room closest to the road and was never disturbed.

The dining room and living room are spacious enough for plenty of people. It would've been a real bonus to have the wood-burning stove in the living room working, rather than just being there for show. There's nothing nicer than coming home and getting a real fire going. The radiators were a bit hit and miss. The kitchen is quite large which, again, is great if your having people over and need some space.

All in all though, a great place and we would/will definitely book again. We'd love to stay in the Summer.

“Great Location, house suited our needs.”
Reviewed 17 July 2012 for a stay in June 2012

The house was great, there were 10 of us staying there aged 8 months to 70 and it catered for all our needs. The kitchen was well equipped with everything from dishwasher tablets to pots and pans of every size, we did struggle to fit the food needed for 10 people into the standard size fridge though, but it wasn't too much of a problem.

All the bedrooms were a good size, the master bedroom definitely being the one I'd recommend due to the superking bed! Apart from the kids bunks, all beds are doubles though, we could have done with the option of a couple single beds but we got around it.
The bathrooms were nice and clean and roomy.

Downstairs the lounge, dining room and kitchen were all of more than adequate size, and the kids (of all ages!) loved playing in the conservatory with the toys and games supplied.

The location is great, a few minutes walk to the centre of Lyndhurst. You do get a bit of traffic noise as you are on a main road but this didn't affect our stay.

We used the outdoor furniture and bbq a few times but the garden was a bit overgrown for the kids to run around in.

Overall a great place to stay for a family break.
