About this property

Complimentary Welcome Hamper
A complimentary welcome hamper will be awaiting you on your arrival containing milk, tea, fresh coffee, bread, butter, eggs, juice, wine and cheese, along with other essential items to prepare a light snack or breakfast. There may be some regional variations.

S41709 which has ground floor accommodation is a delightful cottage set in an amazing position right in the middle of the forest and approached by a short narrow track.
Eyeworth is a very pretty hamlet with a beautiful pond about 300 yards from the cottage with wild ducks. The wild ponies are often seen drinking from the side of the pond and the ducks are always looking for a crust of bread to be thrown in for them.
Surrounded by forest in a very quiet position you can walk from the front door in all directions, no roads, just woodland and heath land where ponies graze
The cottage was part of an old gun powder factory dating from 1899. There are wonderful views from all the windows where you will spot wildlife. There is a flat fenced large garden with lawn and flower beds which is safe for children.
About 900 yards away is a local country pub that serves wonderful lunches every day of the week and stocks local beers.
The nearest shop is about 3 miles away. Salisbury, Bournemouth, Lymington (where there are very good shops and a street market on a Saturday) and Southampton are easily accessible. Visit Peppa Pig World at Romsey only 10 miles away. The nearest sandy beaches are Bournemouth 18 miles and Sandbanks 21 miles. Stonehenge is 24.5 miles away. Brownsea Island is easily reached from Poole Harbour where one can sea red squirrels and peacocks and is 35 miles away.

"Lovely cottage in a beautiful locstion"
Confirmed Guest ‐ 9 Jan 2018
"This is a beautiful and very well equipped cottage. We've been twice now and will be back. We go for a few days with a car boot full of food and drink and tend not to leave, save for the odd meander around the new forest, or if we're feeling really energetic, we'll drive to Brockenhurst and hire bikes. The bedrooms are lovely and perfect for a family or group of friends and the living area is comfortable and spacious. The welcome hamper is such a lovely touch, we're still working our way through the biscuits! There is absolutely no phone signal (or wifi) and we love this - it really is a break from the real world. I would highly recommend S41709 to anyone!"

"Again, we had a lovely holiday at this cottage. It is very peaceful in a wonderful, fairly isolated position. There are some lovely views and some fabulous walks nearby. The cottage is very well equipped.There are some items which we feel the owner should improve on. Firstly is the absence of a decent shower, despite there being 3 bathrooms. The 6 of us had to wait our turn using the bath room with a shower attachment, but some elderly relatives couldn't even use this as it meant sitting in the bath! The wood panelling of that bath is also getting badly damaged. We would put a proper walk in shower in the main bedroom.The cottage also needs a new Sky Box as the current one cannot record. We mentioned this last year, but it was the same box.The temperature of the cottage is hard to maintain, as the thermostat is in one of the bedrooms!"

"It would have been 5 but as there was no handrail down the very slippery greasy steps I couldn't say it was perfect. Would go again if there was a handrail . Thanks Mrs Marriott"

"A beautiful cottage set within the forest. It had everything you need for both a short or long stay, and a hamper so you don't need to worry about bringing the essentials with you. What could be more perfect than waking up to see wild ponies trotting past the front gate? An absolute delight. We will definitely return"

"Lovely accommodation, beautiful remote location, very relaxing. Fantastic housekeeping service. Recommended."
Confirmed Guest ‐ 16 Oct 2017
"We had a great week! Lovely house, garden and location. Our 18-month old loved the space and the animals in the fields next door. The hamper was really useful. We hope to come back! Only things I'd change are the heating, which was too warm for October, and a map of local walks would have been useful (there were some cycling maps)."

"This cottage is in a beautiful location, and the house keeper keeps it extremely clean, We return again and again, but the lack of a shower makes it increasingly difficult to contemplate a further visit.I note that most of the reviews bring up the same problem, and I wonder why Snaptrip do not stipulate that this is a problem that should be dealt with.There are 3 bathrooms all of which are showing their age and could be updated.When we visited in September it was sad to see the garden in such a state of neglect,it was almost impossible to sit in the patio area due to the overgrowth of weeds and grasses, come on Snaptrip perhaps an inspection is in order!"

"Very nice cottage. Lovely welcome basket. Cottage was beautiful and comfortable. Could have done with Wifi and cell phone service but we managed"

"This is a unique and lovely cottage in the forest. Perfect for walking or just sitting in the large garden and relaxing. The excellent Royal Oak pub is within easy walking distance along the lane, but coming back in the dark might be a little unnerving for some. As there's no internet or mobile phone coverage at the house we had to go up to the pub for a signal when we needed it. An urgent family crisis revealed that the payphone didn't work, but Sue the housekeeper was brilliant and sorted it out for us very promptly. The house could benefit from some modernisation internally, three old fashioned bathrooms but no showers doesn't suit everybody.Anyway this was our second visit and we'd go again."
Confirmed Guest ‐ 9 Aug 2017
"The house was well equiped with everything we needed for our stay. However the outside area close to the house was not looked after, and the garden furniture shabby. You couldn't use the new sun parasol as the slightest breeze would topple it as the support was not heavy enough. Our biggest concern was the payphone not working reliably for out going calls. With no mobile signal this was important for us, so much so we checked with RR before we confimed our booking. We needed the confidence that if there was a medical emergency we would be able to call out. Sue did respond to our concerns and the BT engineer came on the Monday, However the pay phone was still unreliable after his visit. We wasted pounds trying to use the payphone to call out during the week. This needs to be resolved as it caused stress being out of contact. The location was lovely, as was the peace and quite."

"Très bien situé. la maison était impeccable, et le panier d’accueil sans reproche... aucun bruit et le village st charmant."
Confirmed Guest ‐ 10 Jul 2017
"Lovely cottage in almost every respect. Beautiful location and garden, nicely furnished, well-equipped. We had a wonderful time.Only two things would give us pause about potentially staying there again. First, the fact that there was no shower (even though the ceilings were high enough that there could have been showers in all bathrooms) and only one of the three baths even had a shower nozzle tap. Second, the lack of wifi."
Confirmed Guest ‐ 26 Jun 2017
"A beautiful position and a lovely cottage. A couple of touches would improve it still further - the outside round table was unusable (very warped wooden top, which could so easily be replaced) and couldn't find a sun umbrella either - and it's a beautifully sunny place!"

"Fantastic cottage in great location. Beautifully furnished and maintained. Very helpful housekeeper"
Confirmed Guest ‐ 6 Mar 2017
"The cottage and housekeeping were good. ~The only criticism with the cottage was that there was not at least one shower cubicle. The bathrooms were all of a good size and could accomodate one. The one bathroom that had a shower head over the bath as not able to be used as a shower due to there being no screen. Everything else was very good, especially the welcome pack, the best we have ever received. We shall definitely book again both for the cottage and Snaptrip. Thank you."

"Excellent location. Property as described. Well equipped and prepared. House a bit cold when heating not on (feedback already given directly to Snaptrip)"
Confirmed Guest ‐ 6 Jan 2017
"It was so lovely, comfortable and peaceful. Kitchen was perfect and had just everything we needed. Walking guides would have been helpful as we couldn't download anything. The Sky recorder box needs replacing as if we recorded anything it just wouldn't play back without jumping. I think they could make it easer to recycle. Also, it would be nice to have at least one shower if possible. Just some comments to help improve but we loved it."

"Warm welcome, lovely hamper, well stocked cottage. Clean & tidy. Didn't want for a thing! Fire warming & cosy, can't rate it highly enough. A beautiful rural location, all windows providing views of the local wildlife, felt very at one with nature! Perfect for a " Get Away From It All Break ! "Highly recommended."

"The housekeeping was excellent and the cottage was generally very well equipped. It is in unbeatable location and we all had a lovely time. The housekeeper was very friendly on the phone and had left us a superb welcome hamper. However there were a few things that were not satisfactory. Firstly the tiny 'ironing board' is not fit for purpose. But perhaps most importantly it is not possible to take a shower as there is no cubicle and only a hand held attachment in any of the three bathrooms. We are surprised that RR has overlooked this necessity. In the main bathroom there is a deep bath and NO safety handles. But there is a sign that says 'Do not grab hold of the taps in order to get out'! Also we do not know if the owners are aware but during our stay there were lots of very large hornets outside the cottage and so we were unable to open windows - perhaps a solution needs to be found here. If they are a regular feature then we think people should be made aware- could be v dangerous."

"Cannot speak highly enough of these services. There was EVERYTHING that you needed (and a fair bit of what you didn't realise you needed) available. The welcome basket is a brilliant idea too. The setting for this cottage is just beautiful and the way it is presented is first class. Have already recommended it to several people."

"As there was no wifi or phone signal we were very disappointed that the house phone did not work. We had a small baby with medical problems and it would have been reassuring to have a working phone in case of an emergency. The house was well equipped with crockery etc. So much so that there was not a lot of space for food storage in any of the cupboards which was a shame."

"The lack of Internet was rather annoying. Also the pay phone doesn't work properly, it eats money but the connect is awful. Also the fire alarm above the oven goes off ever time the oven door is open. Could it not be moved a foot back to stop the steam setting it off. We also had a problem with the alarm in the hall, it also wouldn't stop. We call Sue about it, under her instruction we vacuumed it, it worked that time. It might also be worth mentioning the lack is showers in the info, I realise that due to lack of pressure a shower is impossible. It is just that some people many not be able to get into a bath. Sue was very helpful. Apart from that, we loved out stay and would return again. Jill"

"The cottage was truly beautiful, very pleasant surroundings, extremely comfortable, the welcome hamper was an added extra and very generous. We would certainly use Snaptrip again and we all loved S41709. The housekeeper gave us a courtesy welcome call on the Friday we arrived, to see that we had settled in ok and that everything was alright. A very nice personal touch. Many thanks"

"This was a lovely, very well equipped cottage in a lovely location which I would have marked excellent had it not been for the heating. We would have appreciated some control over the heating because at times the cottage was very cold. It would have helped had we been able to keep the wood burning fire alight, unfortunately as soon as the kindling had burnt away, the fire went out. Members of my party were familiar with wood burners but they failed in there attempts to get this one going. In the evenings the bedrooms in particular became very cold."

"Ms M - A very enjoyable stay will definately be back to stay here again"

"Lovely property, well appointed and beautifully decorated. Because of position right in the New Forest we were visited by hornets which meant we couldn't have doors and windows open as much as we'd have liked, but that's not the owners' fault! However, in view of problems with the boiler above, it was not ideal."
Confirmed Guest
"We booked very late and the booking was confirmed within 5 minutes. All information was sorted out in the 3 days before we arrived having only booked 3 days before wet arrived. Very efficient and perfect at a time of distress for my family. The cottage itself was totally relaxing and beautifully rural and relaxing and we had a lovely short break"

"The only problem was lack of communication. No internet. No mobile phone signal. Landline not working until midweek. When it did, eventually, work, it was very expensive. The housekeeper did her best, was very helpful. Everything else was super. Clean, quiet, very comfortable. Thank you."
