“Small but perfectly formed!”
Reviewed November 8, 2018 for a stay in October 2018

We recently spent a most enjoyable few days at Plover Cottage, which is situated in the heart of Milford-on-Sea. The cottage is compact but has everything you could need, is immaculately clean and very comfortable.
The cottage is handy for both the beach and the village and the surrounding area is lovely; we were lucky enough to enjoy some autumnal sunshine and the New Forest was stunning!
It was our first visit to the area and we hope to return in the not too distant future.
Many thanks to owners Jane and Stephen.

“Perfect getaway for the New Forest and coast”
Reviewed October 26, 2018 for a stay in October 2018

A perfectly situated cottage for a getaway to the New Forest and/or coast. The cottage is tastefully furnished, well equipped and very clean. A ten minute walk from the beach, and a short drive to the New Forest. We had a fabulous autumnal long weekend.

“Lovely cottage but tiny lounge”
Reviewed September 30, 2018 for a stay in September 2018

Milford on Sea is a pretty little town and Plover Cottage is a pretty little cottage with everything you could need apart from enough lounging space. Kitchen is lovely and absolutely fully equipped. The bedrooms are lovely too with very comfy beds. Bathroom is small but functional with a great efficient shower. Bed linen and towels are also excellent quality. The only thing that was a problem to us was the size of the lounge. Due to pouring rain during our stay we spent more time in the cottage than we expected and with just the one sofa and a small chair there wasn’t any space to totally relax. If you had a cup of coffee or a glass of wine in your hand there was no where to put it down as no table however small available.
This is just a small thing but one we found sad in view of the rest of the property.
Parking right outside is another bonus and property also allows a dog. There was a nice selection of books and dvds too.
The Smugglers pub is less than 100 yards away and can thoroughly recommend it for both wine and beers and food. We found everyone very friendly and welcoming even in the rain !,

“Just great”
Reviewed September 16, 2018 for a stay in August 2018

I stayed here for 4 night with my sister and had a wonderful time. The cottage is very cute and contained everything we could want. It was very welcoming and extremely clean, it is also the only cottage I have stayed in the provides things like bows and towels for dogs. The area it’s self is lovely, we took advantages of the bus system but could have just as easily stayed within walking distance. Early morning walks wlong the beach with the dog was one of the finer parts of the break along with the wide variety of good food just a stones throw from the cottage. I really hope I get to go back and have already recommended it to several people.

Plover cottage is just lovely! We are just coming to the end of our week long break. Plover cottage is so comfortable and well equipped. Everything, from the kitchen that has everything you could need, to the comfortable beds and cosy living space, is perfect! The weather has been pretty good too!! This has been a great base from which to explore the New Forest and the coast. There are plenty of shops and places to eat (and drink!) within walking distance. And the beach is just down the road. We will be sad to go but...........we can always return!
