New Forest Cottages reviews. Large Cottage reviews:

"We had a superb break, loved the property and I personally fell in love with the New Forest all over again....I will definitely be back, and have no hesitation in using and recommending Halycon to anyone - a sentiment echoed by the rest of our party"

Feedback for three consecutive bookings at The Old Stables over February half term week:

"Just wanted to say what a lovely stay we had at The Old Stables last week. The cottage was warm, cosy and clean. The kitchen was well equipped and lacked nothing. All the appliances were in working order and the location in Lyndhurst was superb. Everybody in the group said the beds were very comfortable and the open fire added a great ambience at the end of the day. We shall certainly recommend this cottage to other large groups seeking a break away."

"We really enjoyed our stay, the layout was perfect as we were all able to eat and relax together but bedrooms were seperated so crying babies didn't wake the older kids up! Just a pity the weather was so bad that weekend, it was so windy! We will definitely book again. Thanks very much"

"Just a quick email to let you know we had an amazing 60th birthday weekend. Any worries that we had were immediately gone the moment we stepped inside The Old Stables. After our initial visit last May to look around, it was good to see the alteration and decoration that has happened in the meantime. Not only that, we were lucky to have all the new crockery and glasses, plenty of hot water, cozy beds and good heating. All our guests were very impressed and I can guarantee you will have plenty of recommendations."

Family miss Lyndhurst large cottage, The Old Stables but enjoy wonderful Christmas at Rhinefield Bothy New Forest Cottage:

"We have just spent a wonderful Christmas with our family. It was not easy to find a large property which is prepared to let for a few days rather than a week at this busy time. We just missed booking the Old Stables and were initially disappointed, but we soon realised that the Bothy would probably suit us better with young children and dogs"
