"If you like technology convenience, internet and action don't book. If you like to switch off get away from it all and absorb yourselves in rural idyll this is the place for you. Nestled amongst the New Forest with wildlife in abundance this riverside property has the wow factor. We booked for a small party and dog hoping to fish, kick back and relax and it surpassed our expectations the grounds are beautifully maintained and the comfort level is high the kitchen well stocked for a sous chef and has every nicknack required. The property consists of three parts the main house a wooden framed thatched property with a luxury bathroom fluffy towels provided, ground floor bedroom good sized kitchen and comfortable lounge with an open fire.The Fishing Lodge a comfortable twin with shower ensuite facilities and the Hayloft a quirky double in the eaves of the garage.The style of furnishing is eclectic. The outside space and dining with a river view with no noise pollution was a highlight as was the many sights of the river the fine specimens of birds the otter and waiting for the cows to come graze on the fields beyond.The lack of wifi means you have no choice but to switch off and enjoy your surroundings... a big plus. The local village shop a brisk twenty minutes' walk a community project was well stocked with excellent local beef and venison, a friendly hub of activity, the village pub similarly and dog friendly a focal point with locals happy to chat about the history of the area and with a good range of local beer, ciders or soft drinks for me as a non drinker. The dog soon found his way around the area enjoying the sniffs of the forest as we enjoyed the sights of the wild ponies and the deer he rather enjoyed trying to roll in their poo! A haven for walks and twitchers and history buffs too.A good base for exploring further afield if you wish too we were happy to stay put and enjoy every moment. The only one big negative....we had to leave . Thanks to Sharron for all your fishing tips and help with our stay we look forward to our return."

"I will not describe the cottage and location as it is very accurately covered in the Hideaway description of this property. It topped our expectations in all categories. We booked the second week in June, weather was sunny and not too warm, being a party of three my better half and her friend both German and myself English (born in the New Forest) all now pensioners. I have lived since 1969 in Germany but each year I like to return to southern England for at least a week's holiday. We had the master bedroom in the house and our friend the Fisherman's Lodge giving us access to separate bathrooms.Â´The Fisherman's Lodge gave a magnificent view from the bed through the panorama window down the river. Over the years I have had many of this type holiday cottage in Cornwall, Devon Dorset, Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. this cottage tops them all. We have all owned horses and it was for us a pleasure to see the New Forest ponies peacefully grazing along the road side. Just sitting on the patio in front of the house watching and hearing the many different wildlife was like living as it must have been in the English countryside a couple centuries ago, fantastic. Our friend was the first time in England, she has fallen in love with the cottage, New Forest and southern Hampshire. For those who want to visit the seaside there are some very good beaches for all tastes within an easy drive. as is with larger towns, Southampton, Bournemouth, Salisbury and Winchester plus many country pubs and villages. This cottage will be on our list for our next holiday in England. I must give thanks to the owner that such a period tastefully furnished cottage with its truly fantastic location has been created and that it is available for renting Thank you, Mike Painter"

"Not luxury. Really disappointed with the lodge expected much better for the money paid, basic maintenance needs completing plus misleading description. See below for fair pros and cons:Pros:* Nice location* Use of hotel facilities * Reasonably clean* Good size garden* Cons:* Limited hot water (had to use kettle to top up baths for children)* Disgusting kettle full of limescale* Toulet flush broken* Poor design of kitchen door and fridge* Telephone doesn’t work* Hidden welcome pack / guide* Washing machine outside meaning having to leave children alone to wash clothes, go out in freezing temperature to do washing and go in and out to check if the cycle had finished! It should be clearly stated it isn’t in the house!* Missing Basic kitchen utensils, grater, potato masher etc * Poor service* came back one day to find 3 men in the property servicing the boiler, they had put our dog in the kitchen. These things should be done in between guests and if not only with consent* Dogs not allowed in living room!* Requested cot, travel cot and Highchair as are stated as available. None in property when arrived, called to request. One travel cot and Highchair arrived. Explained we requested a cot too- another travel cot arrived which was left in the hall. Called back and asked them to put in a bedroom as I couldn’t move the beds and do it. When they came was told there wasn’t room in the bedrooms for it! I explained I wasn’t having my 2 year old sleeping in a hallway! And suggested they either moved a bed out or rearranged the furniture to make it fit!Although it is a lovely area your money is better spent on a different property."

"We were seven adults, (2 in their early twenties) and one dog. The setting is breathtaking and the 6 days we were there were magical. The main cottage was full of character, very warm, comfortable and well equipped with a fabulous fireplace. The accommodation in the other buildings was just as good and there was an interesting eclectic range of furnishings throughout. Surrounded by woodland, there were plenty of lovely routes for walking, stomping and scrambling through! The view from the house and garden is utterly peaceful, only broken by the activities of the herd of 50 or so swans on the river - what an incredible bonus to be able to watch them everyday so close at hand - and geese landing in the fields opposite. If there were any downsides at all some of the party would have a liked a proper shower in the main house as well as the lovely bath, and the oars for the small boat provided seemed a bit short for a good row up or downstream, though we did wonder if that was provided mainly for crossing the river to be able to fish from the mile of river bank opposite. However these were more than compensated for by everything else about this wonderful place. There was an amazing timelessness about this place and although we made enjoyable excursions to other parts of the New Forest, the time spent at Undercastle Cottage was probably the most relaxing we have ever experienced on a holiday. A must for anyone wanting to write or paint or just 'be' and for utter peace and quiet to get away from life's hurley burly, I cannot recommend this property enough."

"We had a lovely stay at the Lions Retreat at the October half term. The house is spacious, comfortable and well-located with an enormous garden bordered by a stream. The stream was only shallow when we visited and hazardous only with very young children.The owners were very pleasant and helpful.However there were a few things about the property that could be improved to make the stay even better.The dishwasher is actually a pub-style glass washer and required constant filling and unpacking as it held only a few items at a time. There were no instructions when we got there, but Mike kindly came up to the house having printed some out.There were a few items of equipment that would have been very useful. As a family group with 4 children we ate in most evenings but it would have been great to have a potato peeler and a large tea-pot. Also a small sharp knife.We struggled to get any heat in the upstairs rooms despite turning up the thermostat . Fortunately it wasn't too cold and we managed without. Downstairs was heated by underfloor heating which was very responsive and comfortable.The quality of the fittings and furnishings was good, plenty of towels and comfortable beds. The jacuzzi was excellent and easy to use. The laundry room contained an extra fridge and freezer . the fridge was really useful to accommodate our overflow of milk etc.All in all a very pleasant stay but it could have been much beter with just a few little improvements."
