“Nice Property, Could do with some TLC around the place, but served us well.”
Reviewed June 8, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Good location, nice and close too the New Forest. It was a nice property , but was in need of TLC. Some radiators were faulty and the Fridge should have been twice the present size!!! Very quite and dark at night. The local pub 100yds was very good with a wide range of meals. My vegy daughter was very pleased with the menu and ths food was good all round.

“Wonderful house, perfect for our extended family of grandparents, parents and grandchildren”
Reviewed January 7, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

This house is really spacious, with a huge kitchen, really large table, so on Xmas day all our guests could sit at the table. We found the WiFi to be perfectly adequate, despite being warned that it may not be any good.
One unexpected negative though was very poor phone connection. My mobile was with the O2 network and I was not able to get a connection in the house at all, during our stay of ten days. It is just a local problem though, as in Hythe I was able to connect.
We had a great stay and the house ticked all the boxes, lots of bedrooms, free WiFi, very large table, big enough for our Xmas Day group of 11, washing machine and dryer, dishwasher.

“Large and Spacious”
Reviewed May 18, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

person found this review helpful

We enjoyed a fantastic weekend away at Meadow Lodge. The house is very spacious and provided a perfect base for exploring the New Forest. The kitchen was particularly impressive and the large kitchen table was perfect for meals together. The bedrooms are large and comfortable. I suppose the only slight downside is the two bathrooms for the six bedrooms and as one is downstairs it means that 5 bedrooms upstairs tend to share the one bathroom. Still, a great place to stay.

“Spotless spacious house for a family holiday”
Reviewed April 16, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Ten of us plus dog, ages 1-71, stayed here to celebrate Easter and Ruby Wedding, and the house was perfect. It is generously heated, light, airy, with all mod cons and comfy beds and a cot for the baby. Easy living space, huge kitchen, good closed garden at rear. Masses of car space at front. Wonderful area - we loved the nature reserve and pond nearby; the proximity of the New Forest with lovely walks and animals; the proximity of the sea (nice walks at Milford); best pubs are in the Forest - the local one is very ordinary; don't miss the Tall Trees Trail and Arboretum in the Forest. The rental company is exceptionally helpful and friendly. Large supermarket a short drive away. Hythe is also nice - toddlers loved the train on the pier. This house is really a find.

“What a lovely place to stay”
Reviewed January 8, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Myself and 6 friends stayed at Meadow Lodge over New Year and never having
rented such a large property , I was unsure what to expect . However, it was
lovely - well appointed, clean and cosy - the open fire was a delightful bonus. The bedding and towels were of good quality even if the bedroom furniture was somewhat basic.Plenty of parking - we had 5 cars between us, handy for the Glen pub at the end of the
road which we used for 2 evening meals ( very good and a friendly welcome) and

we also spent NYE there with the locals. We used the local bus to get into Hythe
(bus stop a short walk away) which is a pleasant little town. Several of us enjoyed
the area for walking and of course Beaulieu and Bucklers Hard are only a short
drive and a must to visit. All in all a lovely place to stay.
