A beautiful well appointed luxury cottage

Posted 11-Feb-2019 on HomeAway
All our party truly loved staying here for a winter escape from the city and a small family reunion. A great location for walks and pub lunches, and then drinks in the evening around the wood burner, followed by games nights at the table! Everyone commented on how comfy the beds were too. A perfect luxury cottage for fun filled days, cosy evenings, and great nights sleep, all made for the perfect weekend away. On top of it all our 13 year old dog loved it too! She was running around the beautiful lawned garden like a puppy! Can't wait to return! Thank you Nicole and Dave, for making our stay so pleasurable.

Lovely cosy cottage

Posted 11-Nov-2018 on HomeAway
Just returned from a week stay in this lovely cottage. It was so well equipped and comfortable. The 'Welcome' treats on arrival were a lovely touch. Each room is decorated to a high standard and the log burner made for lovely cosy evenings. This cottage is in a perfect place for exploring the New Forest. We would very much like to return.

Outstanding cottage in tranquil surroundings

Posted 10-Oct-2018 on HomeAway
The cottage is beautifully decorated and furnished with everything you could possibly need. It has very comfortable beds, a well equipped kitchen, a cozy bathroom and is centrally situated. Pubs, restaurants, shops and footpaths in walking distance. Nicole is a great host. One of the nicest places we have ever rent. We will definitely be back.

A Perfect English Country Cottage

Posted 18-Sep-2018 on HomeAway
What a special couple of weeks spent in the New Forest at the fabulous Gardener's retreat situated in tranquil surroundings. Perfectly situated for access to the village of Burley, New Forest and surrounding areas but you can completely shut yourself away once you open the garden gate and enter the property. The cottage is spacious, tastefully decorated and extremely well appointed creating a warm country feel as soon as you walk in. We absolutely loved it and actually extended our stay . Will definitely be back. Gordon & Julia , Geneva . Switzerland

Beautiful New Forest property.

Posted 09-Jul-2018 on HomeAway
We stayed at Gardeners Retreat Cottage and found it to be of a very high standard throughout. The garden is large and private and has ample garden furniture and BBQ. We were pleasantly surprised with the "goodie" welcome tray, a lovely touch. The beds were exceptionally comfortable, as was the snug area. Only a ten minute walk to quaint Burley village. Thoroughly recommend this cottage and wouldn't hesitate to stay again when next in the area. David & Anne

Very comfortable and well located cottage

Posted 08-Jun-2018 on HomeAway
We very much enjoyed our stay at the cottage in Burley. Well positioned to discover the New Forest with loads of cycling routes in the vincinity (including bike rental at 5 minute walk). The cottage itself is decorated with a lot of taste and we have stolen some ideas for our own home! More than comfortable sized rooms, comfortable beds, high quality materials throughout the cottage. A big private garden at our disposal where we enjoyed a bbq in the sun adds to the overall positive experience. The fact that you are welcomed with a plate of scones and bubbles is much appreciated. Fast and clear communication with the owner who is very helpful to provide tips for the region and also has prepared extensive information about the region including maps etc. We definitely recommend this cottage and will go back when we return to new forest.
