Just got home from a lovely long easter break at forest cottage, We had a lovely stay and the cottage is in a lovely location, wake up to horses and donkeys out on the green, weather was disappointing and rained every day so did not get to see much of the new forest but we were happy to stay in with board games etc and going to the local pub which is a short walk from the cottage,
The cottage if fully equipped and has everything that you need and beds were very comfortable, everything was clean and tidy,
Had one problem with the gas but that was dealt with once we spoke to owner, My only negative was it could do with a freshen up but please don’t be put off with other comments etc as I would recommend this property to friends and family and when I left I was already thinking of dates I could come back,
Really nice stay at Forest Corner, a quirky place with all you need ....open fireplace and hot tub too. The owner very helpful when we needed help with the hot tub and we got the deposit back with no problems.
Highly recommend it!
Stayed at forest corner and had a brilliant time. Great location lovely and clean with all the mod cons and cottage features you'd expect. Loved the log wood burner and hot tub. Owners really helpful and had no issue getting our deposit back. 5 star for sure
Recent reviews about the property made us a little apprehensive before we arrived and although they are correct in some areas they do not give a true reflection of the cottage. Downstairs is very spacious. The lounge has comfortable sofas and large tv. Bose sound system has high quality sound all around downstairs. Dining Room has large enough table to comfortably seat 8 people and is situated adjacent to the lounge and us light and airy. The log burner is easy to use and burns very well, providing a lovely cosy atmosphere in the snug. There are two ovens in the kitchen and both are easy to use. It's a pity all the door shelves in the fridge are broken making it awkward to store bottles and reduces the available space. The dishwasher does not clean the dishes. We tried three times and eventually gave up and did all the washing up by hand. That was rather disappointing, particularly as previous guests have pointed this out. The washing machine and dryer were both very efficient.
Overall the property was clean and contrary to previous reviews towels and bed linen were all clean. The bed in the master bedroom is very comfortable and the power shower in the ensuite is excellent. The sink in the master bedroom does not drain away and this has also been reported by previous guests. At night either mice or squirrels can be heard in the roof.
There was no internet access at the property. We tested the router and there was no internet signal coming into the property.
The hot tub was satisfactory although did contain some bits of gravel which were there upon our arrival. It is not very private as guests staying in the property behind the cottage have to walk straight past. Not a problem for us but maybe to others
Overall we enjoyed our stay at the cottage. The views from the balcony are very pleasant, particularly when the ponies are on the green and we would certainly consider returning.
