“Another most enjoyable stay”
Reviewed October 20, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We revisited Bentley Cottage this weekend with family and enjoyed it just as much as our first stay earlier this year. The cottage is so well equipped and clean, the furnishings and decor tasteful and the welcome pack an additional bonus. Katrin and Ashley are so welcoming and you know you could call on them should the need arise. Lots to see and do in the vicinity for all ages. We will return!

“Home from home”
Reviewed October 5, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

I stayed here with my husband and 2 friends and our 2 dogs
It was fabulous, we could not fault it.
The owners had thought of everything. They left us with bacon, eggs, wine, milk, bread and homemade chocolate brownies and more.
Was a great location
there was even a hot/cold shower hose in the garden to wash the dogs down with.
I could move in tomorrow

“First Class Retreat”
Reviewed October 5, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

This is an idyllic Cottage set in the heart of the New Forest. The property is dressed to an exceptionally high standard, is extremely spacious, has every aspect of that 'home from home' feel and the owners Katrin & Ashley were extremely welcoming and hospitable and even provided some excellent complimentary fare for when we arrived. Katrin & Ashley have really invested oodles in the practicalities and subtleties that make this a great place even down to making it accessible to bring the family dog which we did. Easy clean floors throughout the living areas, with direct access from the front door to the back door where there is a hot and cold mixer shower to hose down the dogs after a tiresome walk in the Forest. The decor is clean and fresh giving a light and airy feel to the cottage. Standards of bedding and linen was first class There is everything to hand from an excellent fully fitted kitchen, beautifully spacious lounge and dining area with wi-fi and well apportioned bedrooms with sumptuous carpets, two of which are on suite. This cottage is excellent by a country mile; one that I would highly recommend.

“Fantastic stay”
Reviewed September 26, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Very well appointed cottage. Ashley and katrin are very welcoming and have very good knowledge of the area which we appreciated as it allowed us to make the most of our stay. We would definitely recommend this accommodation to our family and friends. We enjoyed the brownies, bacon and eggs - they were lovely added touches and the boys enjoyed the toys that were provided and the log burner was lovely and cosy on the colder evenings.

“Very comfortable stay”
Reviewed September 23, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

I stayed at Bentley Cottage for a week in August with my three young grandchildren.
The weather unfortunately during this time was very poor, as it was at the time across the country, however, it was such a benefit for us to have such comfortable accommodation, also with plenty of space, as we found we spent a lot of time indoors.
Katrin and Ashley were also very welcoming and provided some thoughtful touches with all our needs met to a very high standard. Will definitely return again some day!
