    “The Bothy is a lovely cottage - just the right size for a couple.”

    It's got a little private garden with table and chairs and most windows overlook fields (my husband saw deer grazing there one morning!). The landlord and landlady were very kind and provided us with more firewood to heat the wood stove in the living room than we could have ever wished for. It was amazing how warm the rooms got when the stove was in full swing! In terms of kitchen utensils, the only things that might have been nice to have would have been a cafetière and a garlic press.

It was amazing how warm the rooms got when the stove was in full swing! In terms of kitchen utensils, the only things that might have been nice to have would have been a cafetière and a garlic press. But these are minor details; everything else was absolutely fine. The location was ideal too - easy to get to anywhere in the New Forest. Some good heathland and woodland walks were just a few miles away from the cottage. Also there were at least 3 pubs not too far away (The Hobler, the Red Lion and the Filly Inn). I wouldn't recommend walking even to the nearest one - The Hobler - as the road is quite busy and there are no pavements. But it was excellent to have the choice of different establishments for dinners when one doesn't want to travel too far. And there is a Waitrose a few miles further down the road on the northern outskirts of Lymington - very convenient. We had a brilliant time and will highly likely return to this cottage!
