"My first visit to the New Forest and was extremely pleased with the location of this property. Easy access to all areas. The property itself was really comfortable and lacked nothing that I required. I would definitely stay here again if I return to the area The owners were very welcoming and always available if required but otherwise kept their distance. Exactly as I like it. Plenty of walks directly from the property too 10/10 from me"
"This was our second visit to the cottage. It?s a charming place in beautiful surroundings and the hosts are lovely. "
A peaceful and comfortable week in The New Forest
"We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday at the Old Village Shop. The cottage is well equipped and comfortable, and we appreciated the tray of goodies and the milk. We had a week of glorious weather and were able to take advantage of sitting on the verandah from the morning through to dusk whenever we were in the cottage. Our dog loved it, and we all hope to return. Thank you very much for your welcome and hospitality Robert and Rosanna."
"We had a great stay here, excellent location and the accommodation was everything we needed and more. The owners were really nice and made sure we had everything we needed. Would recommend. "
Lovely and relaxing.
"Lovely welcome. Very clean and comfortable accommodation. So many items provided, towels, washing facilities, bbq and even a jug of milk for a very welcome cup of tea on arrival! Lovely spot. The property owners are very friendly and even rescued our frisby from a tree for us! "
Fantastic property in great location with very helpful and friendly owners.
"Was lovely relaxing quiet property set in a great location with easy access to the beautiful New forest, and also close to the lovely town of Lymington. Great pub(East End Arms) nearby and very friendly owners who just let you just enjoy their lovely cottage. Will be back."
"Second time in this lovely cottage. Everything provided for comfort and convenience and some lovely little extra touches for a warm welcome. The location is simply perfect and we shall return again and again. The owners are lovely and the llamas an unusual little bonus. I almost don't want to recommend it in order to keep it a secret!"
a lovely place to stay
"my friends and I thoroughly enjoyed staying at the old village shop. The owners were very welcoming and friendly. The cottage was in a beautiful peaceful location and was a very good base from which to explore the area. The cottage itself was exceptionally clean and comfortable and I hope to return very soon. "
A wonderful weekend with the family
"We had a lovely stay at The Old Village Shop, the cottage is pretty and immaculate with everything that you could need during your stay. The welcome tray was a nice touch. The location and the weather were fantastic, we visited Bealieau during our stay and after a day exploring enjoyed sitting on the decking enjoying the weather and peace. It was lovely seeing the ponies, donkeys and cows around the New Forest whilst we were out and about. If you want no fuss simple pub food we would recommend the Turfcutters which is only 3 miles away, the service there was also very friendly and accommodating. The only suggestions I could make about the cottage are to consider changing the 2nd bedroom furniture to help accommodate adult only groups and perhaps a slightly larger TV. Thank you for a lovely stay."
A lovely peaceful place to stay
"The bungalow was beautiful and in a quiet setting. Everything you could need was provided in abundance. "
Home from home
"Fantastic location just four miles away from Lymington and easy reach of Lyndhurst, Beaulieu and the rest of the New Forest. Indeed you are in the New Forset, just walk out the gate and onto the common land and met ponies and cows! The East End pub a seven minute walk away on a quiet road. The property itself is just perfect, plenty of space-deceiving from the outside- can accommodate two adults and two children. All mod cons and cleaning products should you need them. Wooden balcony a sun trap with lovely view of cottage garden trees. If from the city, like us, you will be struck by the quietness and the star filled sky. Proprietors the perfect neighbours (for us): never seen and not heard, but warm and welcoming when you first arrive and leave. Loved our time there, and would highly recommend. M&S"
Wonderful hidden gem in the New Forest
"We had a lovely time at The Old Village Shop. The accommodation is top quality and the owners very helpful and on hand. Nothing was too much trouble. Everything was ideal for our family break. If I had to find one small thing to improve upon, it would be to have two normal single beds in the second bedroom rather than one high bed. Although it was full size and very comfortable, my older children would have preferred a bed without a ladder. That's only a small thing though and wouldn't stop us staying again. In fact I cannot speak highly enough of this cottage. 11/10 from us!"
