"Excellent holiday accommodation which was spotlessly clean and comfortable."
The kitchen area was well equipped and the cutlery and crockery were of a good quality. We enjoyed walks in the surrounding area and visited Beaulieu motor museum, Lymington and Exbury Gardens during a sunny week.
"Lovely little property, very comfortable and in a beautiful location."
"Comfortable, warm, private and quiet accommodation, very well located for both Lymington and the central New Forest."
We shall return!
"This was a cosy (warm), tucked-away cottage, very private even though it’s beside the owners’ home."
It’s good value for money; not grand, but an ideal base for exploring the New Forest and the south coast. The WiFi worked fine in the living room.

Very friendlY owners and very comfortable accomodation however if visiting in the winter months I would recommend taking a small electric fire as to booster the heating which seems to be turned down from the big house during mid evening otherwise a great time was had by my wife and myself
"Warm welcome, lovely accommodation, fantastic location, peace and quiet, just ..."
Warm welcome, lovely accommodation, fantastic location, peace and quiet, just what we wanted, really enjoyed our break , hope to be back in the spring
"The Annexe is comfortable, warm and well equipped and the owners are very friendly."
The property is a good base from which to explore the New Forest and coast. There are plenty of good walks - we managed to clock up over 60 miles during the week, both in the woods and along the coast and estuary walks. The only minor drawback is you can't really walk directly from the property as the road outside is very fast, so you have to drive to a suitable starting point. That said, everything is within easy reach. Some others have commented on road noise but we didn't hear anything. It was lovely to see deer coming into the garden to feed on the fallen apples, and of course there are New Forest ponies everywhere. It was strange to see highland cattle wandering along Brockenhurst High Street as though they owned the place! A very enjoyable week and highly recommended.
"Directions the pub has been closed a year , it is now Roses tea rooms ."
"The owners are very friendly and the garden is lovely."
Very private with views to open countryside. The garden is also surrounded by orchards.
"Nice little annex, very clean and well equipped."
Lovely garden, managed to get some super photos of the family of deer. The only drawback is the WiFi connection, it is terrible! We think the signal comes from the main house next door and is very weak. It was constantly on and off, and we could only get it in certain parts of the cottage. This was a pain as we had a teenager with us. We enjoyed the new forest and the coast, both within a short drive away. Enjoyed evening strolls along the numerous marinas in the area. Can recommend the Red Lion in Boldre and the Monkey brewhouse just a couple of minutes drive away towards Lymington for dining. Overall we had a lovely holiday in the annex.
"Had a great holiday."
Orchard cottage is a very nice place to stay. Only downside is the noisy road nearby. Had to leave windows shut at night due to the noise.
"This is our second year at Orchard Annex."
Both Bill and Val are lovely hosts. The accommodation is perfect for our needs. The garden space is beautiful with all sorts of wildlife visiting the garden while we were there (birds, squirrel, rabbit and deer) We will be back again next year
"The Owners Valarie and Bill are so welcoming and are very knowledgeable, so helpful nothing is too much for them always there if you need them."
The bungalow is exceptionally clean and beds are so comfortable. This is our third time of booking and can’t wait to book again. Perfect location for everything would highly recommend the red lion pub food is amazing especially Sunday lunch, would also recommend the Boathouse in Christchurch. Lovely walks easy access to all the lovely places.
"The cottage is in a great location,not overlooked and good views of the surrounding countyside."
The cottage itself was very comfortable and well equipped. The owners were very welcoming and helpful. I would not hesitate to return
"We had an amazing time, the annex was just as expected and the couple that owed it were very welcoming and friendly."
The living room was spacious yet cosy and the kitchen had everything you would need including a washing machine and dishwasher. The double bedroom has a large wardrobe and two bedside tables with lights, the single bedroom also has a similar set up and the bathroom was also clean and tidy. Even though it rained pretty much every day we still managed to enjoy the garden and even saw two beautiful deer eating some of the apples that had fallen from a tree. Only thing we did notice was that the Tv and Wi-Fi signal would sometimes cut out especially when the wind and rain were in full force, but we knew that being in The New Forest the signals could be interrupted but it didn't affect our time to much as we came to enjoy the beautiful surroundings. Would definitely recommend to anyone who wants to enjoy the comforts of 'home' while being on holiday.
"Lovely quiet private location."
Very convenuent and warm.
"Very private and quiet."
A bit isolated this suited us but would not suite everybody. The host family were nice. The only drawback was the busy A337 road particularly in August. We could hear it in the night sometimes. Being on one level was important to us particularly my wife who is disabled. There are facilities near by. At the bottom of the hill is a co-op garage and shop. The Red Lion pub in Boldre is about one mile, they do nice Meals. There are Supermarkets in nearby Lymington.
"We have just come beck from a 2 week stay at Orchard House."
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house is set in a wonderful area surrounded by apple trees and views of open fields from the garden. The owners are very friendly making us feel very welcome. We will be going back.
"We had a lovely holiday at the annexe in July 2020."
The annexe is amazing , the facilities are more than adequate. We loved seeing the deer In The garden as well as the Birds . It is the ideal position to explore the new forest and coast. Can’t wait to return Fiona and Richard

Lovely little cottage warm welcome from bill explaining everything would recommend anyone going you wil not be disappointed
"Perfect hosts welcomed us to this cosy, compact holiday home where my friend and I enjoyed a few days rest."
"Warm and inviting- home from home."
Great location in the New Forest yet easy access to main transport links-road,rail,ferry.
"The annex was very comfortable for 3 adults, good value and quiet."
The owners are friendly and available if needed. I had been concerned about the nearness to a main road but we couldn't hear it at all. The annex is very well situated for the New Forest and the coast, our first time here and we loved cycling in the magical forest. Annie
"Lovely accommodation with a very friendly welcome and ideally situated for exploring the New Forest."
"The property was easy to get to, being on a main road, and easy to find because it was well signposted (Some holiday accommodation can require map reading every day to get back to it!"
). The only disappointment was seeing no donkeys in the adjacent field!

We were made very welcome ,milk n fridges,heated towel rails , tea and coffee already there , superb much better than we expected , can't wait to go back ,
"Beautiful location Close to Lymington yet peaceful and quiet Orchard and fields on one side, large lawned garden on the other Very accommodating hosts."
Any requirements were met immediately eg extra Tea towels and a hairdryer Very comfortable, new, clean, and cosy.
"Perfect little getaway in a beautiful place."
Accommodation was spotless, cosy and hosts Bill and Val lovely! We would recommend Orchard Annex in a heartbeat and would love to return another time. The 3 deer in the garden was a particular treat for our little girl. Worth noting though that the wifi or 4g wasn’t great so be aware. 10 out of 10 from us though.
