Lovely cottage
Everything from the booking, check in, stay and leaving was simple. The owners checked that all was ok after we arrived. Lovely cottage that is as described. It is close to all amenities and we had a great few days even with very wet weather!

Lovely New Forest base
We had a lovely stay at Nutshell Cottage. Perfect base for the New Forest. The cottage is clean and tidy, looks like it has only recently been renovated. Possibly a little compact for 6 adults, but perfect for a family stay. Lymington itself is also a very nice town to wander around. Lots of shops and lovely places to eat.

A Lovely Lymington House and Excellent Hosts….
We stayed at Ann-Louise’s house over the bank holiday weekend and we had a great time. The home is very we appointed and a fantastic location close to Lymington town centre. No real bad points and the communication between Ann-Louise and ourselves was excellent. Only two possible downsides, but many many more plus points, so only our opinion and maybe not others, there’s no TV in the top floor double bedroom which would’ve been nice to watch on a lazy morning and the twin room on the first floor had really bad mobile reception and no real WiFi signal, so with two teenage girls, this was a minor issue. Other than that, absolutely no complaints and we would go back. Do not hesitate to book…..
