    CHARLOTTE – 24 Oct 2019
    "We enjoyed our week there, pity the weather didn't play ball! There was a sauna on site but it was out of action. Being in the middle of the new forest was lovely!"
    Kellie – 4 Oct 2019
    "A perfect holiday! Idyllic location, lovely owner and caretaker, cosy cottage, walks from the front and back doorstep! Absolutely wonderful! Will be booking again next year!"
    Jo – 26 Sep 2019
    "Absolutely incredible setting and this was our third time at the cottage because of the location, and because it was OK last time (not spotless, but OK). If it was spotlessly clean it would be absolutely amazing. This time the sofa stank of wet dog, there were dog hairs everywhere and we both had flea bites around our ankles."
    Catherine – 8 Sep 2019
    "The location of this cabin is stunning. Set right in the heart of the New Forest with a choice of pubs in walking distance. Wildlife is literally on your door step including deer, ponies and numerous birds. Fantastic for walkers and cyclists and a pool right outside your door....however the whole place is a tired and dated and in need of a really good clean. It has everything you need to be comfortable but if you like hotel style accommodation this is not for you. If your not a fan of spiders I would also recommend you dont book! Its a rustic, back to basics type wooden cabin. With a little tlc this place could be a real gem."
    Kelly – 8 Aug 2019
    "Thanks for a lovely holiday, this was our second visit and we’ll certainly be back. I also had a couple of yoga sessions with Jane which I really enjoyed she is a great teacher!"
    Confirmed guest – 11 Jul 2019
    "A wonderful place. For those who love nature and animals, especially horses, there cannot be a better place. You might have breakfast with horses or other animals in front of the house. The cottage ist cosy and well equipt. Jane, who takes care for the cottage and the guests is a lovely and discrete person."
    Angela – 23 Jun 2019
    "Starting with the positive We liked seeing horses, cattle and donkeys nearby, we even saw a bullfinch a matter of feet away. The disappointing aspect was that the owners of this place have NOT actioned the numerous previous comments about cleanliness. They basically need to give the place a thorough deep clean, remove and the thread bare rugs that have a nasty smelly dog odour. Previous reviews have mentioned the lack of cleanliness but, after a few years, we mistakenly thought these issues would have been resolved. Hearing laundry from 5 or 6 am in the morning wasn’t quite the wake up call we hoped for and hearing the rid~on mower randomly left running for half hours stints (with no one nearby) wasn’t relaxing. It really would not take a lot to make this place nice, the basics are fine and the bed was comfy but the dust affected us so much we had to leave a day early due to my husband having serious allergic reaction to the dust mites ~ a good clean and more consideration to paying guests would be a good starting place to make this a worthwhile place to stay."
    Emma – 22 Jun 2019
    "Sublime location. Cabin in the woods is what it is. Utter privacy. Swimming pool 10 feet from your door. A Forest as your back garden. A great pub within 10 minutes walk. And owners who leave you alone. Utter perfection !"
    Val – 10 May 2019
    "Stayed here 26th April to 3rd May, absolutely loved it! Location beautiful, hospitality great, cosy and comfy, everything you needed was there, the cleanliness was good just a few cobwebs and spiders around, but that was only expected considering the location, it could have been cheaper but that's because we don't usually spend so much on a weeks holiday, but didn't feel cheated for the price.It's the first holiday we've taken that wasn't by the sea, which we both love, but we didn't miss the sea because this little place is truly special, relaxing and unforgettable. Would go back in a heartbeat!!!"

    "What a delight. The cottage is more of a quirky cabin with access straight out into The New Forest. There was everything we needed inside to prepare any meal and all linen and towels were supplied. The hosts were charming and despite being on their property the location of the cottage felt very private. The piano was a huge hit. We didn't use the pool as we were off season but it is next to the cottage so children could easily be supervised while sitting on the patio taking in the breathtaking, unspoilt views. We have looked for availability in the winter as soon as we got home. Quiet, clean and cosy. Well done Dockens Water."
    Paul – 6 Apr 2019
    "Heating inadequate as was the kitchen and bathroom. The lounge and bedroom were shabby and all was in very bad order wi-fi dropping in out all the time. My wife would not used shower because of the mould floor and the walls .We went home on Thursday morning instead of Friday"
    JAMES – 22 Dec 2018
    "Great holiday lovely place marvellous hosts"
    Caroline – 3 Dec 2018
    "Cottage at Dockens Water is in an excellent location for walking. It has a cozy look inside but I found it a bit chilly when the weather is windy because there are draughts coming from window frames & under doors. Could also be cleaner.I loved the cottage & location & had an excellent holiday but I did find it a bit cold with the draughts!"
    Lee – 17 Nov 2018
    "Fantastic location and cosy enough and comfortable. If you are an outdoor person and want walks literally on the doorstep, then this is the perfect location."
    Angela – 8 Nov 2018
    "Really enjoyed our stay would recommend it to others"
