RECENT CUSTOMER REVIEWS
We arrived at the cabin after a 5 hour drive
We were loaded up with good food intending to have 'self catering? holiday.
What we were greeted with was a musty smelling dark place that was ill equipped for what was expected. No oven , you needed to be limbo dancer to operate the microwave and no food prep or storage at all. All the furniture felt sticky and not of an acceptable standard that we would expect for the money paid .
To be totally frank it made us both want to wretch .
We lasted 15 minutes before walking out of the door .
The morale of the experience is never book somewhere like this without reading Trip Advisor !
Two week May stay
Fabulous natural area which was peaceful but alive with a huge variety of wildlife - Nuthatches feeding young in the garden, Nightjars on the heath, and a full selection of ponies, cattle and donkeys along the track which leads to a pub at either end.
Cabin was clean with small but fully equipped kitchen, homely lounge, comfortable bedroom, and clean bathroom with great power shower. Secure pet friendly garden complete with table/chairs and BBQ.
The owners are characterful, knowledgeable and friendly - they leave you to get on with things, but the sort who would be fully supportive if there were any issues.
Perfect for us as a base to do loads of local heath and woodland walks, but with good road connections enabling you to strike out further - Budgens at Shell station on Ringwood road in Blashford served us well for whole 2 week stay.
We will return...
Location, location, location
Just sitting down with a cuppa on our return from a wonderful week hidden away in the lovely Endymion. We did a lot of research before booking this hide away. We were looking for somewhere in the heart of the forest, a short walk from a pub and a back to basic feel - all boxes ticked and then some in the end. The cottage is cute, rustic, cosy and situated within the forest with walks at the door step - our threes dogs have been well and truly exercised! We can highly recommend High Corner Inn and the Red Shoot, had lovely meals at both pubs. We also found the New Forest Inn in the centre of the forest and that was lovely too. The beaches were only a short drive away and most dog friendly at this time of the year. It really is paradise for dogs. Steve and Judy were very welcoming and friendly - something we really appreciated. The biggest compliment we can make is that we cannot wait to return!
Lovely location, disappointing accommodation
Location of our stay was in a lovely part of the New Forest, however on arrival we immediately thought that we had paid way over the top for what was on offer.
The 'cabin' felt similar to staying in a b&q shed and was grubby.
We left a day early as was unable to get the shower to work and no contact was made with the owner during our stay.
On return we contacted Sykes Cottages with whom we made the booking and told them of our experience especially shower facilities not working. They contacted the owner who denied anything was wrong. I had take a video of the shower not working which clearly showed the issue however it was still denied.
I feel annoyed that we had to cut short our holiday and wasted money on this booking. My recommendation would be to avoid.
The cottage feels like something Snow White and the Seven Dwarves would live in - it is very sweet.
