Situated on the edge of Downton and close to the New Forest, Little Terraces is an excellent place for a peaceful break, especially for walking holidays. Small but well-appointed accommodation and parking, in an attractive village with good local amenities including 3 pubs with restaurants.
Lovely cosy cottage with lots of little extras. Fresh flowers and chocolates a nice surprise. Even provided sandwich bags, which is something I always forget for when we go walking!
This fully equipped cottage is perfectly located on the edge of the New Forest with amazing walks just on your doorstep. If it's a relaxing stay you are after then the log burner will keep you warm and toasty. The village of Downton has everything you need if you don't want to stray too far. This was our second stay in the cottage and it didn't disappoint.
Stayed at Little Terraces for a few days over Christmas. The owners made it welcome with decorations and a bottle of prosecco, which was welcome after a long drive. However Sue and Simon gave us conflicting information on obtaining the keys from the safe and the house was freezing on arrival. Inside the cottage was clean apart from some dead woodlice behind the sofa and some of the condiments are years out of date. The bed was very comfortable, the top terrace was treacherously slippery, so wouldn't recommend climbing up during winter, but the views are great! Downtown is outside the new forest national park so you have to travel but it's worth it. We liked the village pub, but struggled to get wood for the wood burner, without driving to find a garage as the co-op didn't have any for a few days. Overall a relaxing retreat but could be made even better!
Fantastic little cottage in the New Forest. Spotlessly clean and a proper home from home. Comfy, warm and within easy walking distance into Downton (nearest pub 5 mins walk). Kitchen equipped to excellent level and a lovely view from the terraced decking at the rear. Comes with private parking for one vehicle. Lovely friendly hosts.
