“Very well positioned house to explore the New Forest”
Reviewed 8 December 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Well proportioned house, perfect for my husband, son, dog and myself. The property is situated within easy walking distance of local shops, cafes and hostelries where you can get a decent meal. There are lovely forest walks on your doorstep perfect for those with a dog. There is an out building with a dog shower to clean off your muddy dog if required. The house was warm and clean and had everything we needed. The only gripes we had were that the television was very small for where it was positioned and that the ground in front of the window where you are advised to park was very, very soft and we would advise not parking too close to the house if it has been raining heavily.

Many thanks for taking the time to review us and we are of course pleased that you enjoyed yourself both at Brackenwood and all your doggy walks in the surrounding area - we are very lucky to have so many wonderful walks on our doorstep - hence the need for the doggy shower!
Unfortunately the ground is a little soft just outside the front of the house due to a burst pipe in the driveway - that whilst of course having been repaired just needs the ground to settle in preparation for levelling off when we get some better weather!

“Perfect location”
Reviewed 6 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We stayed here Monday to Friday me my wife our baby and our 2yr old, cot provided by was a great help, washing machine a bonus too, the location is perfect for walks and shops, I'm a runner so I was out every morning running around looking at all the horses just roaming around, there is lots to do down there we went to Paultons theme park as good as Disney Paris, also hoped on the ferry 20mins drive and went to the Isle of Wight for the day. Overall I'm very happy with this stay here I will go back one day but it's definitely cheaper to go abroad but each to there own we are all different but we did have a great time and loved it. Only thing with the house I'm VERY clean and there was a few too many cobwebs, apart from that it was PERFECT PERFECT! thanks very much

It was kind of you to take the time to review your stay at Brackenwood and we are delighted you enjoyed your time both at the property and in The New Forest.
Cobwebs are I'm afraid a daily battle in the forest - they drive us mad too! So apologies for those, but unfortunately by the time you have gone around a New Forest home with the cobweb brush you can guarantee more will already be where you started from!
Our caretaking team work hard to keep standards high so we're delighted you found everything to your satisfaction and look forward to welcoming you again in the future.

A lovely review, thank you. The heather in the Forest at this time of year is quite a display of colour against all the different greens you see at this time of year. Lovely too are all the colours of Autumn so perhaps another trip is needed! Anyway, delighted you all had a wonderful time and we hope to welcome you back again in the future.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay and we're delighted your stay exceeded expectations and the doggy shower bath was so useful. Our dog owning guests really do seem to appreciate it and it certainly does make life easier - especially in the more muddy seasons!
We look forward to welcoming you again in the future.
