Extracts from our Visitors' Book

MAY 2024

What a lovely welcome to our first stay  (one of many, I am sure) at Cosy Cottage. As always, the forest has been lovely with so many activities. Cosy Cottage has been fabulous. A "Home from Home" with a wonderful welcome pack including toys, which our dogs have enjoyed. It's so clean and "cosy" with so many wonderful homely touches. We will return. Thank you so much, Kerrie.

We loved our stay. The best cottage we've ever stayed at. It's lovely and our dogs thought it was great. Thank you, we will be back.

Yet another enjoyable stay at Cosy Cottage. Cosy Cottage ticks every box for us, with all the homely touches of fresh bread, milk and a new toy for the dog. Also, immediate access to the golf course for pre-breakfast and evening dog walks. Will recommend to anyone looking for somewhere to stay in The Heart of the New Forest. Thank you for your hospitality.

What a smashing cottage, with a super welcome of homemade fresh crusty bread, jam, tea, coffee plus doggie treats and toys for our dogs. The cottage has everything you can possibly need. It is beautifully clean and the beds are extremely comfy. We couldn't wish for anything better. Can't wait to come back.

APRIL 2024

Yet again, another lovely holiday in this fantastic Cottage! Thank you Kerrie for all the extras!

Well!! What a beautiful Cottage with everything we needed. So well catered for - we had the best stay and will certainly be coming back.

Thank you for a lovely stay in Cosy Cottage! We have had the best week exploring. Our 2 labradors thoroughly enjoyed the local walks. The Cottage is so well equipped for dogs and humans!

See you again next year!


It's wonderful to read such charming comments in the visitors book - no wonder people keep coming back. You have always made the Cottage special and welcoming. Our week here has been brilliant. As well as the usual ponies, donkeys and cattle, luckily we saw a sow and 6 piglets, wandering along the road. It made our day! Thank you Kerrie for the fabulous loaf you made for us - better than any shops! Many congratulations for your wonderful achievement.

Lost track of how many times we have stayed in your wonderful Cottage - it truly is a home from home. Thank you for your lovely welcome as always. We have had a great week. Even our elderly dog has come to life! Cannot wait to come again! Congratulations on your Visit England Rose Award. It is much deserved.

Our 3rd visit again this year and second time we have enjoyed a whole 14 nights here. Again a lovely warm welcome from Kerrie with treats and toys for the hounds and a lovely vegan chocolate cake for us. Thank you for your personalised welcomes Kerrie. We're so delighted that you've been rewarded with the Visit England Rose Award this year, which just proves how you have made this home stand out among so many others and why so many of us keep returning time and again. We are sure to return soon. Kerrie (and Bob), you deserve every success and praise you receive.

We have had another lovely week in Cosy Cottage - our home from home! Lovely to see you Kerrie and thanks for all our treats. We have enjoyed beautiful forest walks in the glorious sunshine. See you next year!


Lovely to see you again and many thanks for all the lovely goodies. Unfortunately, the weather let us down a bit, but Cosy Cottage didn't and never has! See you again next year!

Thank you so much for letting us stay at your lovely cottage. We've had an amazing time and will definitely be back! Thank you so much.

Thank you so much for your beautiful home away from home for the week. We've had a really lovely week and it went far too quickly!

JULY 2023

Great time - thank you Kerrie. A lot of retail therapy instead of the usual doggie walks. We love the Cottage and will be back. Thank you Kerrie, it was lovely being here in your beautiful cottage.

Another lovely stay at Cosy Cottage. Lost count of how many times we have been here. We love it! Our terrier got so excited when she realised where we were and she was first in the door. The dogs are so chilled here. Thank you Kerrie for all the treats!

Our dog couldn't wait to run into Cosy Cottage as he knows he gets special treats (and so do we)! We have had a fantastic week here as always and will see you again next month! Thanks again for all you do.

We've had a great time! Forest walks everyday so tired pups today, but already we are looking forward to being back in 8 weeks' time. We feel so at home here thanks to your wonderful warm welcome and homely cottage.

What a lovely cottage in a great location. We have had a fabulous time!

JUNE 2023

What an amazing week we have had! We walked for miles! Thank you so much for the lovely welcome pack. The homemade bread was delicious and the boys loved their biscuit treats. The dogs have had a great time and walked their little legs off! We hope to return to this beautiful cottage.

Our first stay at Cosy Cottage and what a treat! Comfortable, clean, convenient and very dog friendly. We have enjoyed walks in the forest and at the coast. The dogs have had a wonderful week, as have we! Thank you Kerrie, we would definitely come again.

As always, a wonderful welcome at this wonderful Cottage! 80th birthday banners, cake and card - thank you so much!

APRIL 2023

Another wonderful time! Thank you Kerrie for the lovely bread - most enjoyable! Our dog had a great time on his first holiday. He was right at home from the start.  See you again soon, hopefully!

It was lovely to see you when we arrived. So many different changes to see around the Cottage! Everything looks really amazing. Cosy Cottage has always been very special for us and just keeps getting better and better. See you soon!

The Cottage was lovely and clean, comfy beds and the whole Cottage is beautiful. Perfect enclosed garden for our 2 dogs as they are miniature jack russells as we often get gardens where they can get out, but this was perfect! 

Yet again, Kerrie thinks of everything and for the most warmest of welcomes - even vegan Easter eggs! There's a reason why we keep coming back here so often! Apart from the lovely Cottage and host, this part of the country never fails to delight us with the peace, the countryside/forest walks and wildlife all around! See you in July!

MARCH 2023

Cosy Cottage lives up to it's name! It's the most dog-friendly place which we've stayed! Location is great for us for short walks with our senior dog. Easy access to both the forest and Lyndhurst.  The numerous car parks meant a different walk every day.

Many thanks Kerrie for another lovely week and for all our treats! Tilly has enjoyed all her favourite walks. We like all the improvements and Cosy Cottage certainly lives up to it's name - a real home from home. Looking forward to coming back in May!


We have had a lovely time. The local bike shop were very friendly and helpful. There were a staggering number of donkeys and ponies, which was lovely.

Thank you for a lovely stay. I think this could be our 4th stay here (3rd with our nervous staffy dog). She loves it here with the wide open spaces close by and the airiness of the Cottage keep her feeling safe. We love the rooms and how amazingly clean it is, together with the warm welcome that we always get. We will be back. Thank you!

The most dog friendly place we've ever stayed in. So thoughtfully equipped. This is our second visit and looking forward to coming back next year! We loved our week - it went far too quickly!


The Cottage is the best and most kind and caring to dogs we have ever been to. Us humans are pretty impressed too! We have been blessed with sunny but cold weather for our forest walks. Thank you for everything!

Another wonderful stay in this fantastic Cottage.  Loved all the improvements and thanks for all the treats.  We will be back! 


Thank you Kerie for making a wonderful Christmas break so magical. The Cottage looked fantastic. We loved the beautiful gift that you made for us. The dogs loved their toys so much that they won't sleep without them!

Thanks for such a lovely stay. My daughter particularly loved the toys!


Yet another wonderful week at Cosy Cottage -would never want to stay any where else when visiting this lovely place. Thanks Kerrie for your usual warm welcome and beautiful Cottage. It sets you apart from all the rest! Looking forward to next year already!! 

Another lovely weekend break. The new flooring adds a modern touch. Very comfortable beds and well presented. Looking forward to our next stay.

Had another lovely week here walking in the Forest. Cottage, as usual, clean and welcoming with everything we could need. Thank you so much for all the treats. See you again in March!


We have had a really lovely stay and our dog thoroughly enjoyed her very first holiday. We felt very much at home and relaxed which is all down to you and your lovely Cottage. Thank you.

What a lovely week we have had here in Cosy Cottage. Beautifully placed for everything in the Forest. Our 2 dogs have had such fun in this very dog friendly place. Thanks Kerrie, we will be back!

Thank you Kerrie for another lovely weekend at Cosy Cottage. Looking forward to our return.

Thanks Kerrie for a lovely warm welcome. Yet another fantastic holiday in Cosy Cottage. It really is Home-from-Home. The New Forest is great. See you again in April 2023.


Another lovely week here, a bit chillier now that Autumn has arrived, but so warm and snug in the evenings here at Cosy Cottage. Thank you so much for all our treats, which are really appreciated. See you next year!

Back again! 3rd visit this year and the first time we've been able to stay for 2 whole weeks! What a delight! The Cottage and the warm welcome from Kerrie are all you could wish for on your first or umpteenth stay here in the New Forest and, no doubt, so many guests, like us, who come back time and again. We're still finding new walks and New Forest areas to explore for both humans and animals alike.

A lovely week in this lovely Cottage (in spite of the rain which was much needed)! Lots of biking and walking in the forest. Our first time in Cosy Cottage, hopefully we will get to visit again for more biking(age and health permitting).


Lovely and homely, with everything you would possibly need. Would come again.

We have had a great time in Cosy Cottage. When we come to the New Forest again, we will definitely stay here at Cosy Cottage. It is just lovely!

Thanks for a lovely stay. It makes a big difference when a place is this dog friendly!

JULY 2022

Many thanks once again for our lovely treats. Yet another wonderful stay here - even more new things!! Cosy Cottage is just the best!! See you next month!

A lovely cottage - so well equipped and dog friendly. A quiet area and such easy access to the Forest. Thank you!

We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Cosy Cottage. Having never visited the area before we opted for the New Forest Tour Bus (hop on/hop off) to allow us to visit the whole area. Much walking, swimming on the coast and lovely visit to Exbury Gardens to name but a few things! The Cottage itself was ideal, providing everything we wanted -BBQ and wine every evening! Communication with Kerrie was excellent throughout. We could not have asked for better. Many thanks.

I'm running out of great things to say about this wonderful Cottage! Lovely Kerrie for providing such a warm welcome every time we stay here and the area itself is truly spectacular and lovely everywhere you go. Walks in abundance, dog friendly venues and lovely people to meet. See you in September, Kerrie! 

JUNE 2022

Also our first visit to his lovely Cottage. A warm welcome and everything we needed for our stay. Great location for exploring the New Forest and further afield. Definitely thinking of coming back to explore more. Thank you Kerrie for the helpful emails and texts before we arrived. We knew exactly how to get in, which is always a good start!

Our first visit to Cosy Cottage and we couldn't have asked for a better welcome. Thom (guide dog) was impressed with his toy and treats. Had lovely weather, plenty of walks and a very comfortable home for the week. Would definitely recommend and hoping to come back in the future as there is lots more to explore. Cosy Cottage is very "Blind Friendly". Thank you.

Thank you Kerrie for your warm welcome. It is lovely to be back in Cosy Cottage. We have lost count of the number of times we have stayed here and it just gets better and better! Cosy Cottage - PERFECT!! New Forest - PERFECT!! Looking forward to coming back to our home-from-home!

We have had a lovely stay in your very comfortable cottage. Everything we needed and more. A great touch for our arrival was the home-made bread, jam and milk. We joined in the Jubilee celebrations and everyone made us very welcome. We have had a lovely holiday. 

MAY 2022

Cosy Cottage is very well equipped. Kerrie, you have provided everything that was needed for our holiday. We have had a really lovely time here. Thank you.

Again, a lovely stay - just like home from home. Very comfy beds and very well equipped cottage. Everything has been thought about to ensure a lovely holiday. Thank you very much Kerrie and see you again soon.

Thank you Kerrie.The Cottage is perfect, as always. See you soon.

Lovely stay, as always! Very comfy beds with very clean linen. The coffee was much appreciated after our long journey! A short stay this time for a wedding, but can't wait to come back for a longer stay!

Yet another amazing week at Cosy Cottage. So many new things in the Cottage - you work so hard making everything perfect! Thank you for our gifts. The bread was delicious! See you again in July.

APRIL 2022

We had a lovely stay yet again.This is our happy place. Thank you Kerrie for always being on-hand and for the welcome pack. We will be back!

Cosy Cottage has everything we could have wanted. Great base to explore from. Food was great everywhere! Lovely touch having Easter eggs provided. Would stay here again. Thank you for a lovely week.

We had a lovely time and saw lots of ponies and donkeys. Thank you for the welcome gifts.

Lovely stay, and our dog thoroughly enjoyed his walks on the forest. This was a walking holiday for us and no need to take the car anywhere all week, as plenty of walks to do from Lyndhurst. Great Cottage and lovely "welcome" bread and other supplies.

MARCH 2022

Starting to lose count of how many times we've stayed at Cosy Cottage, but it never fails to deliver and the lovely welcome from Kerrie and the lovely things that she thinks of and does make us feel right at home from the minute we step in the door. The new beds are wonderfully comfortable and we've slept like logs, much aided by the new and old walks we've enjoyed with the dogs. The New Forest is truly a year round gem! Can't wait until July and again in September in our "second home" (well, we can dream)!

Another fabulous week here at Cosy Cottage - our third visit in less than a year and coming again in September! The Cottage has everything you need. We have been exceptionally lucky with the weather and have been out walking every day in the beautiful forest and beach at Highcliffe.

Another lovely holiday at Cosy Cottage- our fourth time. Great welcome pack and very dog friendly. The Cottage is in a great location to explore the New Forest. Good meal at the "Waterloo Arms". Lots of lovely days out. Look forward to our next visit!

60th birthday celebrations. Lovely touch with banners, balloons as well as a Welcome Pack. Lovely Cottage - very warm and cosy. The New Forest is beautiful and we will most defnitely be back!!


We have had a fantastic week. The Cottage is amazing and you have really thought of everything that we could have needed.  Lots of dog walks in the forest and on the beaches! Thank you for a great week. We will definitely come and stay again.

Thank you for a brilliant stay in your amazing Cottage. We loved it so much that we want to come back. It is very cosy - just like the name!

We have had a great time this week. Cosy Cottage is very clean and welcoming in a great location. It was lovely to be able to walk into the forest without using the car. Lyndhurst is a great place to visit and we enjoyed the heritage centre immensely. Thank you for making the dogs welcome too eg. dog chews, blankets etc and poo bin, as sometimes it's hard to find somewhere that is happy to take them. The homemade bread and jam were amazing!  

We have had a perfect stay in Cosy Cottage. Everything was clean and cosy when we arrived and we felt very welcome! There were some lovely extras in the welcome pack! We are sad to leave but will most certainly return - it was perfect for us and our wee dogs. Thank you!

We've all had another lovely stay at Cosy Cottage - it's our favourite place! Thank you Kerrie for your warm welcome and all our treats.  As always we have everything we need and a really comfy bed. Looking forward to coming again in June!


A lovely stay - thank you. Very cosy! We've already booked for next year. Couldn't be better for dogs (and people)!

A wonderful, but all too short, stay in Cosy Cottage. Weather has been kind so plenty of long walks not to mention the odd cream tea! Cannot wait for our November stay!

The Cottage is so well equipped! Thanks for everything especially all the goodies and the champagne! It's been a wonderful 3 weeks for us and the Cottage is PERFECT!!!!


The Cottage is as good as I remember and thank you so much for all the treats left out for us. The welcome you leave out at the Cottage is the best I have ever encountered! So happy to be back!

The accommodation and hospitality was very nice, cosy and made it feel like a home that we had lived in forever! The Christmas decorations were also very festive and an extra bonus for our stay. I hope that we will be able to come again soon.  


What a comfortable cottage! We have enjoyed a lovely week here - thank you. The weather has been unseasonably gorgeous too!

We all had a lovely stay as usual in Cosy Cottage and so lucky with the weather! 

Another lovely week at Cosy Cottage which really lives up to it's name.  We were very lucky having wonderful weather, just perfect for walking. Looking forward to returning again in March. Thank you for all the little gifts. The dogs have finished off all the dog biscuits and the bread and marmalade were delicious!


We have had a fabulous week. The Cottage is smashing and so dog friendly.

Really lovely cottage and well equipped. Loved the small details like the Cosy Cottage toilet rolls. Enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend.

Another wonderful week spent in Cosy Cottage. The weather has been very kind and we have been able to make the most of some gorgeous autumn days. Long dog walks and cream teas - what could be better?! Thanks once again Kerrie for your usual welcome and kindness. Cannot wait to come again.

We had a very enjoyable stay in Cosy Cottage. All we could have wanted. The Cottage is not lacking in anything. Lyndhurst is so lovely and central. We have walked miles in all areas of the forest, plus on our day trip to the Isle of Wight. Thank you Kerrie and Bob.


Yet another home from home stay. We had a lovely relaxing time. See you again in April!

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Cosy Cottage. Enjoyed visiting the area, so much to do and the week flew by. Will definitely be back again and Cosy Cottage will be our first port of call for accommodation. Thanks again for everything you have provided for an excellent holiday.

We're starting to lose count of the number of times we have stayed at Cosy Cottage! Without fail, every visit is a delight and being able to meet Kerrie at the Cottage once again this time was the icing on the cake with a wonderful warm welcome we always feel the Cottage gives it's visitors. As always, the Cottage is wonderfully clean and fresh with everyting you need for a "home from home" holiday. The area around the Cottage provides some wonderful walking right from the doorstep and with many more great places to roam throughout the forest from the many forest car parks. Thank you, as always, for all your special and personal touches and allowing us to "live the dream" in the New Forest for another week of bliss!

We had a fantastic stay. The dogs enjoyed their stay and their welcome treats! We could fault nothing and would love to stay again - thank you!

We have had a lovely time again - thank you. 

We've had a fabulous few days. The Cottage is lovely and clean and had everything we needed. Definitely come back for another visit. Thanks Kerrie and Bob.


We had a very comfortable stay at Cosy Cottage with everything we needed being provided. It is really well presented and has a very homely feel. The owner, Kerrie, was really helpful and it was really lovely to arrive to homemade bread and other basic essentials for our first day.

We had an amazing week! We hope to be back next year!

Lovely cottage - everything you need. Very clean and cosy! Bedrooms were great, lots of storage in the whole cottage which is a benefit. We've thoroughly enjoyed our stay - love the New Forest and hope to be back. Thank you!

We've had an AMAZING week! We have loved exploring a new area especially visiting the coast and seeing all of the ponies and cows. The Cottage has been perfect and very well equipped. Thank you so much for a brilliant week!

JULY 2021

As always, Cosy Cottage has a lovely feel to it. When booking with Kerrie, it feels like I am booking with a dear friend. Someone who cares about her guests and who makes a difference with her personal touches before, during and after. We've had a lovely stay and have been to lots of beaches and lots of shopping as there are many querky shops to explore. Will be back for another stay in the future.

Our second visit to this lovely cosy cottage and still as delightful!

We have had a great time in spite of the erratic weather! Lovely cottage with everything you could possibly need. Everything wonderfully clean and we felt very safe staying here in these difficult Covid times. We hope to return in the not too distant future. Thank you for all the effort in making our stay in Cosy Cottage so enjoyable.

The Cottage looks and smells absolutely amazing. You've worked really hard with some new touches inside and out and it's as homely as ever. Always a shame to leave, especially when it feels so much like home! Thank you again and see you in September!

JUNE 2021

A lovely cottage which is even bigger than the website photos suggest. The cottage is very Covid compliant with hand sanitiser provided at both doors. Everything was spotlessly clean with lots of crockery and cutlery. It was our wedding anniversary whilst we were here and Kerrie put up banners as well as giving us a card and chocolates. The other welcome gifts were lovely too. We have been in regular contact with Kerrie ever since we booked which has been great. We all thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and will definitely recommend the cottage to our friends and family. Thank you Kerrie and Cosy Cottage.

Another great weekend at your lovely Cottage. Lots of great dog walks and an afternoon at Barton on Sea. Looking forward to our next visit to the Cottage.

A really lovely stay in a wonderfully well-equipped and cosy cottage. Kerrie has been very helpful and the location is fantastic for exploring the New Forest. We loved the dog friendliness too! Thank you very much for such a relaxing stay.

Once again, thanks for a lovely few days in your wonderful Cottage. Weather was kind to us and we all enjoyed some beautiful walks and pub grub! Looking forward to coming back in October!

We have had a wonderful week in Cosy Cottage. It is just like being at home with everything you need. Nice meals and so many beautiful places to visit. Thank you so much Kerrie for letting us enjoy your lovely Cottage. Hopefully we will be back in the future.

MAY 2021

A lovely cottage in a great location for exploring the New Forest. Kerrie and Bob made us feel very welcome. The Cottage had everything we needed to make us feel at home plus the lovely treats! It's very dog friendly and we loved the easy access to local walks. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Cosy Cottage is the perfect holiday home for families and their dogs to stay and have a lovely, relaxing holiday in the New Forest. It has been lovely to come back here again and "thank you" Kerrie and Bob for all you've done to make us feel safe and comfortable. The Cottage is spotless. We've had some lovely long forest walks. Thank you for the fresh bread - much enjoyed and treats for Tilly! It's been lovely to be here, as Lyndhurst slowly opens up and we begin to feel "normal". Thank you Kerrie & Bob.

This cottage lives upto it's name! It's homely, comfortable and home from home.  It's one of the best we have ever stayed in. Kerrie & Bob should be proud of what they have! We will be back!! Thank you we've had a great week and a good rest.

APRIL 2021

Yet again, another wonderful holiday in your beautiful cottage. Cosy Cottage is immaculate throughout and set in a fantastic location. See you again next year!

We didn't think that Cosy Cottage could get any better, but it just has! The new white windows and pale green front door look fantastic as does the new fencing and trellis in the garden. The new curtains make the rooms look so bright and welcoming. We really appreciate all the measures you have put in place to keep the Cottage safe. We have had a really relaxing stay - it was just what we needed.  Looking forward to when we can come again! 

JANUARY 2021- 12th APRIL 2021



We have had a lovely stay at Cosy Cottage. Loved how great the location was, perfect for exploring locally by car or foot.  So many thoughtful touches left by Kerrie. Everything has been thought of to allow you a pleasant and care free stay. Felt very safe in the current times with the supply of sanitiser, including your own mini bottle, mask and gloves which was particularly thoughtful. Highly recommend Cosy Cottage and we will return. Thank you - just the break away we needed!




As always, a pleasure to return again. The Covid situation and rain has not affected or spoilt our stay with Cosy Cottage, as usual, a credit to Kerrie. Thanks to Kerrie, the Cottage felt 100% safe. Thank you!

Oh my goodness - where do we start! Such a lovely welcome pack - treats for us and treats for our dog, Molly - you always treat us so well and we love it! We always feel looked after and feel that you care about your visitors.  Thank you so much, we have had a fab weekend - totally relaxing thanks to you and all your efforts. See you again soon. Thank you so much!

To say it is a "cosy" cottage, we had plenty of room. Everything was just right - a real home from home. The cleanliness was spot on, especially in these times of Covid. I would certainly recommend and if I stay in the New Forest again, this is where I would return to. Thank you Kerrie for the homemade bread and for having such a delightful place for us to stay in. My dog also wants to thank you as he felt right at home from the start with the biscuits, blankets, his own towel to use and even a ball!

Thank you so much. It was all lovely - we had a really special time and the Cottage was just perfect.

Another lovely week at Cosy Cottage. Weather was quite kind to us with some wonderful autumn sun and bright sunny walks with our dogs.  Thanks for everything, as usual, Kerrie. Hope to be back again next year!

Yet another lovely week in Cosy Cottage despite the weather. With the current Covid situation, we felt extremely safe. As usual, Kerrie the owner, goes the extra mile. We will all be back next year.


We have really enjoyed a much-needed relaxing holiday at Cosy Cottage.  Tilly has enjoyed re-visiting her favourite walks and we've loved the treats! Thank you Kerrie for all the precautions you have to do to keep us safe and you've struck the right balance for our comfort.  We are looking forward to coming back next spring!

A fabulous stay at Cosy Cottage, as always. Thank you to Kerrie and Bob for a lovely welcome and for providing us with such a wonderfully equipped cottage to spend our holiday in. The dogs had an amazing time, enjoying the walks and we are all going home refreshed and happy!

The Cottage is nice and comfortable in a good position.


The Cottage is spotless as always! Thank you as it has been absolutely lovely again. So sad to be going home today, but looking forward to getting back ASAP. 

Thank you so much for having us in your lovely cottage.  It was perfect! Warm and homely and in the best location.  We explored everywhere and it was all nearby!  Loved all your personal touches.  We will definitely be coming back. Thanks again.

We have had a lovely time and thank you for another great holiday. We won't leave it so long to come back! Great to see you and the bread was amazing!

We have had an amazing time here and the Cottage was perfect. Thank you.

JULY 2020

We have had a great time and love the Cottage! Thank you for the bread and jam - both were delicious!

Thank you for letting us stay in your lovely cottage. It was perfectly designed for a baby and a dog! The cottage was so clean that we have not been worried about the virus. Bonnie loved the walk just around the corner to the forest and the baby enjoyed his visit so much he actually slept for 7 hours each night for the first time! We would love to come and stay again.  Thanks for the welcome pack - the bread was delicious and Bonnie loved the treats.

We have had a wonderful time here as always.  We really appreciate all you have done to make Cosy Cottage safe in these difficult times. Looking forward to next year already!

Another lovely week in Cosy Cottage. Wonderful weather and peaceful surroungdings meant that we have had a wonderful week of walking and relaxing. Thanks for thinking of everything as usual and cannot wait for our next stay in September!

As always, the Cottage is spotlessly clean and well equipped.  The removal of books/games etc for Covid-19 has had no detrimental effect on us or the feel of the Cottage at all. Some great walks and trips to Beaulieu, Exbury and Lymington. The extra welcome touches of almond milk in fridge, cruelty-free hand sanitiser and delicious vegan chocolate cake show, yet again, show how great a host Kerrie is and one of many reasons we continue to return here. Can't wait to be back for another week's stay in 7 weeks' time! Thank you!



March 2020

Our second time at Cosy Cottage this year and we had another lovely time. It was the first time for our friends and they also thought it was fantastic.
