Bothy Boldre

A lovely little let. With fields on two sides, and secluded garden on the other two. A very pretty place with a lovely outlook. There was even a friendly horse that could almost be stroked from the kitchen and bathroom windows. The bothy is light, spacious, and comfortable. It is very close to the lovely town of Lymington and also the new forest. On the down side, there was supposed to be a starter pack of fuel for the fire, but we were told that wasn't lit at the time of year we were there. The use of the woodburner is quite a draw, and having woodburners ourselves, we took extra fuel of our own, which we then had to take back. It's quite wrong to make a big thing about a feature then say someone cannot use it. The shower needed a whole bottle of bleach to remove the mold and make it safe to use. And the mugs and general kitchen cutlery etc. could have been cleaner..

Bijou hideway

Lovely comfortable cottage. Situated in grounds of owner's home, close to all facilities but standing alone with outlook over fields. Well equipped and very comfortable.

A great little place to stay

We have stayed in many self catering holiday lets for a considerable number of years. The Bothy was all we could have wished for. The cottage was very clean and tidy and well furnished. All the equipment worked well. The Bothy is situated off the main road and well secluded surrounded by an orchard and a paddock. Many places were easy to visit. Mudeford Quay is a very interesting and lovely place. A trip to Hythe on the river especially at tea-time usually means you can see the large holiday cruisers depart from Southampton and the ferry trip is interesting and you can view many of the boats in the harbour. Lyndhurst is a very busy small town and the Forest Drive is a really lovely experience. A car ferry from Lymington takes you to the Isle of Wight and Osborne House (Queen Victoria's residence.) The owners were absolutely charming and very helpful and we found them very friendly. The holiday was a delight and we loved staying in The Bothy. We thoroughly recommend it.
