A fabulous cottage within easy distance of coast, forest and Lymington. We loved the layout, especially the upstairs sitting room and outdoor space. having the claves in the field made it even more special. Plenty of parking space too.June 2021
Very nice stay at slate cottage. We were 2 families with 2 young kids and it was very easy to organise ourselves with 2 rooms on each floor. The cottage is very well located, has a lot of charm inside and outside and the playroom is out of this world - the kids loved it. Only drawback is that the outdoor dining space is quite far away from the kitchen. I think the cottage would benefit having a proper outdoor kitchen area so that you limit the number of trips to the kitchen during a BBQ The New Forest team was also a pleasure to deal with, very professional, knowledgeable on the area and always happy to help. Will definitely book again with themJune 2021
3 generations of our family had a very enjoyable stay at Slate cottage. The rooms and outside areas were spacious, clean and comfortable. Our granddaughter enjoyed the playrooms and garden. It was lovely to watch cows in the adjoining field. Have 2 recommendations: It would have been useful to have had a microwave, particularly with our little one.It would have been more comfortable if the mattress in the upstairs bedroom (with the ensuite) was softer. The staff were always helpful and attentive to our questions and followed up some queries promptly. A special thank you to Harri!June 2021
Slate Cottage is very stylish and beautifully fitted. It is spacious, warm and comfortable. The property manager and New Forest Escapes couldnt have been more helpful. Thoroughly recommended.March 2021
