  • "Very lovely little cottage, we rarely saw our hosts in the adjacent house but they were always friendly."

    Lovely little touches like eggs and cookies for us. We were lucky with lovely weather and it was lovely to sit out on the little patio, we would have loved it if the chairs had cushions! Overall highly recommend for a quiet retreat and recharge,

  • "I had a great week at Roughwood."

    The accommodation was situated in a pretty rural location and it was very private. The interior was beautifully maintained and it perfectly suited my tastes - very comfortable without being too 'fussy'. I used Roughwood as a base to tour the New Forest and I enjoyed a number of very good walks. The amenities nearby provided all I needed for the week and I left feeling very relaxed. I have holidayed with Sykes on a number of occasions and I can honestly say that Roughwood was up there with the very best.

    A very relaxing week in glorious countryside.The lodge is very clean and well equipped for a comfortable stay.Helen and Andy made us very welcome and we enjoyed watching the horses in the morning. Lots of great walks straight from the door onto the forest.

  • "ROUGHWOOD COTTAGE IS NOT A DETACHED PROPERTY IT IS ATTACHED TO THE OWNERS PROPERTY."

    Roughwood is attached to the owners property, this is clear from the description and the pictures. The owner has taken measures to ensure their guests privacy during their stay, and has fitted privacy blinds at Roughwood and in their own home. The garden at Roughwood is completely private and enclosed. We have received no other complaints regarding the property being semidetached, we hope you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

  • "Great place for peace and quiet."

    Well appointed, extremely clean, great hosts. Only criticism would be no WiFi so could not download cycling routes etc (should have been better prepared) but good 4g signal

  • "We found the holiday accommodation to be sparklingly clean and Covid secure."

    All the appliances worked well, being relatively new and modern. The bed was particularly comfortable and there was sufficient room to store our possessions. The owners were particularly hospitable - we enjoyed numerous conversations with members of the family. The property afforded us the opportunity to have privacy as well as the comfort of knowing that help was always at hand. We thought that the arrangements for eating indoors were somewhat cramped and the bar stools were rather uncomfortable to sit at for any length of time. We were aware that there was no wifi at the property - there is 4G coverage although this was sometimes less than adequate when we were indoors. It was a pleasurable stay with so many varied things to do in terms of outdoor pursuits. It is a beautiful part of the world, worthy of revisiting in the future.

  • "The outside seating area is so peaceful and overlooking fields and trees."

    Lovely sunny position and beautiful to soak up the sounds of nature. This cottage was so beautiful, high quality, spotlessly clean, light and airy. Far exceeded expectations. The family, including their 2 lovely boys, are so welcoming and friendly. Would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone wishing a refreshing, peaceful holiday. Excellent location down a quiet lane yet good for reaching all locations within the New Forest. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay. A very definite recommendation from me.

  • "The location of the cottage was fantastic and we immediately relaxed into the tranquil surroundings."

    The quality of the finish and attention to detail in the cottage was superb. Walks in the new forest are literally a few steps away and places of interest only a short drive. We would highly recommend for anyone wanting to totally relax and switch off to book this little gem.

Within the delightful county of Hampshire and actually situated in the New Forest National Park is this wonderful detached property, Roughwood.

Resting along a private drive past the owner's property within large grounds, this self-contained retreat is a perfect fit for a couple's break to the country.

A contemporary open-plan living space offers a lovely spot to relax at the end of the day, rest your feet and spread out on the sofa in front of the TV to wind down, or get snug with a good book.

Within the kitchen area you are equipped with a great range of appliances, including an electric induction hob and oven, so you can cook up a tasty treat for two and enjoy your dish at the bar-style dining area, which looks out over the rolling fields outside, creating a gorgeous backdrop to your evening.

Nestle into the large king-size wooden sleigh bed, a marvelous feature adding further luxury to your stay, with plenty of storage to be found in the wardrobe for your things too.

Step over the smooth wooden flooring underfoot and freshen up in the bespoke bathroom, where a warm soak can be had in the bath, or a quick hot shower to make an excellent start to your day.

All you need to do to find adventure is step outside the front door and start walking, with the New Forest National Park offering miles and miles of routes and trails to explore all encompassed by beautiful natural and unspoilt scenery.

Another serene spot can be found in the Blashford Lakes Nature Reserve, take a stroll and observe the wildlife with winter being a spectacular season to visit when huge flocks of overwintering birds fly onto the lakes to roost.

Being within easy reach of the coast too you can spend a day on the beach in Bournemouth when the sun is shining, head into the pier amusement arcades, grab an ice cream and afterwards enjoy fish and chips at Harry Ramsden's beach front fish and chip shop.

Rockford Common is only a short distance away, known for its outstanding natural beauty, it is a great day out.
