' Fantastic place in a great location with perfect weather ' If your looking for a quiet holiday cottage with all modern facilities and plenty of room to move around then this is the place for you. Visited in July the Ducklings did not disappoint in any way. Good size bedrooms, bathrooms and lounge/kitchen plus big garden with big garden shed to store cycles. We will be returning soon.

Spotless property in a small village. Great access to New Forest and Isle of Wight,(make sure you visit Queen Victoria's house, Osborne House) Excellent, secure parking. Very obliging host. Excellent facilities, very comfortable. Peaceful, lovely garden setting at rear. Secure parking for car. Bathroom downstairs, but there is a toilet upstairs for the 2 bedrooms. Excellent Wi-Fi. Would highly recommend.

“Wonderful, relaxing place to stay!”

We have stayed here twice now and both times have been extremely impressed with the cottage. It is lovely and clean, well equipped and feels homely. Lisa (the owner) is so lovely and although she lives next door, leaves you to it but is always happy to help. The location is excellent. The village of Sway has a few shops and a train station and there is a large Tesco nearby in New Milton so you are never far away from anything you need. You only have to walk a few metres to find walks through The New Forest and you are not far away from larger towns and cities so you get the best of both worlds. Definitely would recommend staying here!

This is a real cosy holiday home with everything you need to have a relaxing weekend away. Everything extremely clean and of high quality. The location was perfect for us to rent some bikes and explore the New Forest whilst being close to the likes of Brockenhurst, Lyndhurst and Lymington to enjoy some shops, cafe's, bars and restaraunts. We would highly reccommend this place to anyone looking for a relaxing weekend in the New Forest. Service from Lisa was also excellent!

“Excellent Rental”
Reviewed 23 September 2012 for a stay in September 2012

Had a very relaxing and enjoyable week at Ducklings - the accommodation was excellent, everything was very good quality and very clean. The house, which is attached to the owners own home, was in a great area on the edge of the New Forest (within walking distance). It is incredibly peaceful, the garden with table and chairs lovely. We shopped in Lymington - Waitrose/Tesco/M&S although there was a Post Office, pub, cafe in Sway. We caught a ferry to the IOW in Lymington which was great. There was a hairdryer, iron/ironing board, fridge/freezer, dvd and dvd's, books/games, everything for a lovely holiday Would fully recommend Ducklings.
