  • "Excellent accommodation, impeccably maintained and tastefully decorated."

    Would highly recommend. Only issue arose upon leaving when the front door (with the key on the inside) locked itself when shutting. This only became apparent when we tried to open the door. We explained the situation to the owner and it became apparent that although they had a spare key this would not work with another key in the lock. The only way in was apparently to break a window. The owner advised that the same issue had occurred before. Given that would strongly suggest that a warning be provided either verbally and/or by a notice on the door not to leave the key in the lock when exiting the property.

  • "We’ve just had a lovely two night stay at Foxes Earth."

    Everything you could need in the cottage and a fabulous welcome pack which was really thoughtful. Immaculate decor and incredibly clean. Thank you so much for such a wonderful break!

  • "The owners were really helpful and made us and our young dog feel completely welcome."

    The cottage/chalet is beautifully set, nicely thought-out internally and it is very peaceful! The chalet's proximity to the New Forest makes for easy and good walks. It was thoughtful of the owners to leave a bottle of wine and snacks, too. They were appreciated! The village is lovely, with an excellent pub (always busy) and a French restaurant (also always busy.) The cities of Salisbury and Southampton are close by and there are many interesting places to visit. thank you for a most relaxing, restorative break! We would definitely recommend Foxes' Earth!

  • "Beautiful location, wonderful cottage but sadly mis advertised as having a king size bed."

    It is a small double. Once this issue was pointed out after we had to measure the bed, the owners and Sykes cottages admitted the mistake but were sadly unwilling to offer anything to recompense for 3 nights in a tiny bed. We always check bed size so feel a little misled. Disappointed.

  • "Lovely cosy cottage."

    Comfortable and well equipped. Appreciated the welcome pack goodies. Ideal location for enjoying the sights of roaming horses, ponies, donkeys and pigs and for exploring and walking in the New Forest.

  • "The listing stated that a microwave was available but we were not aware of one on our visit unless it was contained within the oven, which seems unlikely."

    There could have been a few extra sockets in the main front room as there was only a set to support power to the TV and there was no real room to set up a laptop PC. However, and very much on the plus side is that the property is immaculately maintained and the owners were very helpful and did as much as they could to make our family welcome. A highly recommended property to visit if you want a peaceful location with great views of the New Forest and the surrounding area. Undoubtedly this would be an excellent place to visit in the summer due to the outside seating on the balcony which is spacious.

    Place was lovely and had everything we needed. Short walk to pub and a French restaurant. Plus walks straight into the woods.

  • "We had a wonderful 3 night stay at Foxes Earth."

    The property was spotlessly clean and has all the mod cons you need to make your stay more comfortable. The owner popped over to make sure we had everything we needed within 10 minutes of us arriving and if we needed anything we could just knock on their door and ask which was lovely. There was a delightful welcoming pack which consisted of a bottle of wine, some beer, chocolate and biscuits. There were also some dog treats for our dog. We made full use of the decking area when the weather allowed us to. I did think by looking at the pictures that we had access to the garden for our dog but it is just the decking area but this was completely my misunderstanding. There is an open space area where you park your car for your dogs to go outside which is completely enclosed and adequate. We went on lots of walks from the property itself and also went further afield in the car and on returning from our walks we used to walk down to the pub for a tipple or two which was great. This is a great place to stay with everything you could wish for in a wonderful area of the New Forest. Thank you for making our stay so comfortable.

    Excellent shower and Kitchen facilities…could perhaps benefit from a Microwave and Coffee m/c for some but not an issue for us. The Food at the Lamb Inn does not disappoint . The Welcome pack was much appreciated. Thank you Kim and Chris!

  • "A lovely accommodation, which we found extremely well presented throughout."

    A warm welcome from Kim & Chris along with a handy welcome pack including a bottle of wine and 2 beers!. Very quiet location, which we found ideally situated for our daily excursions. A local pub only 3 doors away was most welcome on our first evening after a torturous journey took longer than expected. The 2 bedrooms are light and airy with 2 big Velux windows. During our stay the blinds were waiting to be fitted. The information pack would benefit from some places of interest to visit or recommended restaurants/pubs. We found The Royal Oak at Fritham (15 mins drive) excellent. Serving a variety of amazing Ploughman’s lunches and a very reasonable price. Also on a wet day we discovered The Buckler’s Hard Museum & Historical Village. Excellent.

  • "Beautifully appointed little cottage that was perfect for my wife and I, along with our 3 year old daughter and Maltese dog."

    The owners had obviously put some care and thought into the property and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay from Friday to Monday over the August Bank holiday weekend. The location was perfect for Peppa Pig World and the ponies, donkeys and cows wandering around in the village were a delight. A lovely pub and French restaurant were just 2 mins walk away. Highly recommend this accommodation.
