“First class experience in beautiful surroundings”
Reviewed 14 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Being a family spread across the world this was the perfect location for the 7 of us to convene. Initially we were hesitant about the size of the living area but it turned out to be spacious and comfortable. Katrin and Ashley really have taken care to think of every aspect of the experience - the fittings are first class, the gifts of bacon and wine were generous and they even came round to check we were ok and showed us how to use the wood burner.

The cottage is only about a 10/15 min walk to the nearest National Forest woodland and he local amentiies are ideal. We'll definitely return and wish the couple all the best for the future.

“Fantastic cottage in a wonderful location”
Reviewed 8 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Bentley Cottage is a wonderful place to spend a relaxing break. The cottage itself is spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated, and has everything you could want or need. The location is fantastic, with wonderful walks just outside the door in the stunning New Forest. The train station is close by and is on the mainline to London which makes travel really easy. Ashley and Katrin, the owners, are lovely, welcoming and did everything possible to make sure we were comfortable.

It is the best cottage we have stayed in by a long distance, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to everyone!

“You will find it hard to do better”
Reviewed 30 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

Very friendly and helpful owners Katrin and Ashley well appointed felt very homely. Convenient to local shops and very near the new forest. One disappointment advertised wi-fi access and you could not get a signal not the fault of the owners just a poor signal area.
I would certainly recommended it to any family.

“Relaxed and cozy holiday cottage”
Reviewed 15 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

I have spent a quiet/relaxed December weekend before X'mas with my family (with a young child) in Bentley cottage. The owner couple is very nice, offering great welcome pack and let us feel very much at home.

The cottage is newly refurbished so everything is brand new and extremely clean. We loved the log burner in the living room very much! Overall, very cozy/new/nice cottage in the Brockenhurst. Will definitely try again next time when we are in new forest.
