We felt so happy and comfortable from the moment we arrived, every practical thing has been thought of! And the level of comfort was just the icing on the cake. We were able to bake, cook grand meals and have the most fantastic time we could have hoped for! Please, please visit Oddways, you will not ever regret or forget this place! We certainly wont!November 2020
Absolutely wonderful weekend at Odways, have been to the New Forest many times but never been in such an amazing location, literally out the gate into the Forest. This was a celebration weekend with my best friend and families, 6 kids ranging 2-15years, the garden/trampoline was such a winner for the kids. The house was just so lovely, really big rooms and the space was amazing. Would definitely love to think we would go back there. Also the staff at New Forest escapes were so helpful and really easy to deal with. Gave us good recommendations to horse-riding for the kids, and also a local caterer which made the weekend extra special to have delicious meals pre-prepared for us. Can't recommend enough.September 2020
What a great find. So quiet and beautiful. We had a truly fabulous week here. Rachel at the holiday company was very attentive to our needs. The house may not be pristine but it makes up for it in so many other ways. Oh and the beds are SO comfy! Hire bikes! Eat at the East End Arms, explore, go canoeing on the River Beaulieu!! and enjoy the wild ponies.. but dont leave the gate open or youll have guests. Just perfect!! Even when it rainedSeptember 2020
