Thanks for a fabulous weekend with our grandsons. The cottage is so very well equipped, lovely location and the warm welcome was so much appreciated. Very many thanks
“Greeted by a dining table decked with gorgeous flowers, a generous welcome basket & the aroma of freshly baked bread, we felt at home at once, and were most impressed with the little touches added by owner Amanda, such as a box full of clean baby toys in the play room off the kitchen; sterliser & baby monitor; plug in night light, great selection of games, books, DVD’s & CD’s to appeal to all ages; even bath toys. I was most inspired by the bread maker – ingredients supplied of course. The decor is the height of good taste, all heritage hues & good quality furniture, and with a wood burner in the dining room and lounge, its wonderfully cosy. With only 2 bedrooms its not the largest house around, but offers the perfect introduction to family holidays for nervous new parents. Plenty to see, from New Forest towns such as Lyndhurst and Brockenhurst to Beaulieu and coastal towns such as Lymington it makes a great base”
We have had a great week at Twin Cottage and have been lucky with the mini heat wave. Cycle hire in the village, horse riding at Burley Villa and exploring the beaches at Highcliffe, Barton on Sea and Avon Beach. Thanks for the gifts and freshly baked bread. A perfect home from home. You have everything you need.
Our second visit to Twin Cottage. A wonderful home from home, so comfortable, makes for a relaxing break from the crazy hub bub of normal life. Thanks for all the little touches, plan to be back again.
Second visit & another fabulous stay. Arthur (aged 2) is refusing to leave! Thank you.
A much needed break to Twin Cottage. Thank you so much for continuing to make this place such a relaxed retreat for us all. It makes a huge difference and we return home recharged. Thank you.
Lost count of how many times we have stayed here now – we have been coming since October 2012 and our family has grown since then. We all call this “our holiday house” because its like home from home.
Was a wonderful stay which the whole family had something special from the cottage. From Ella’s present to the loaf of bread, there was great attention to detail.
A wonderfully thought out cottage filled with all the things one needs but often forgets to pack. My children and i loved everything about our stay here and the children referred to it as home very quickly. We were so lucky to see horses and cows right outside the gate too! Thank you very much.
Fully relaxed and so are the boys. It only takes a couple of days here to feel revitalised. It is our happy place (with a huge touch of luxury)! and has created so many memories for us. Thanks for the gifts Amanda and thanks for your thoughtfulness.
We have had a lovely holiday in your very comfortable cottage. Thank you Amanda, for all the thoughtful extra’s – much appreciated. Loved seeing the new born foals around!
We had such a great time! We hope to return many, many times. Thank you so so much for all the incredibly thoughtful touches Amanda (& the housekeepers). Much love.
A wonderful weekend at Twin Cottage, this is our third visit after 3 years and we loved it just as much as we did then. The cottage is gorgeous and has absolutely everything you can think of. We had a lovely day at Marwell zoo and a glorious day at Paulton’s Park. Thank you so much for the lovely presents.
Absolutely fabulous – lots of wonderful little touches to make it a special week for all of us. 6 stars!!
A magical cottage in a magial location. We knew from the moment we arrived to the smell fo freshly baked bread we were all in for a treat and how right we were. This is such a beautiful part of the country we could easily stay for another week and still have plenty to do. Rory caught his first crab at mudeford quay and his first fish in the stream at mill lawn. Thank you Amanda – this has been one of our most enjoyable and memorable holidays..
Thank you SO much – we had a great stay at Twin Cottage – our first break since our little boy Evan decided to join our family. All the little touches are so great – the fresh cut flowers, chocolates and the breakfast in the fridge and the bread baking in the breadmaker. Evan says thank you for the book – its the first one that he’s enjoyed reading so much. We can’t wait to come back to the New Forest and hopefully we can stay in Twin again soon.
A great family break in a beautiful location. The cottage is so well equipped with every little thing thought of and more! Lucy loved the toys and her new dolly. Mummy and Daddy loved the long lazy summer evenings. Great base for trips to Bournemouth, Avon Beach & Peppa Pig World! Thankyou
We had such a wonderful long weekend at the cottage! We loved exploring the Jurassic coast and the many villages of the New Forest. We were so charmed by the thoughtfulness of the gifts, freshly baked bread and all the small details. Thank you so much!!
We have had the most gorgeous week here in the New Forest despite the rain. Amanda you have worked a dream with Twin Cottage. You have thought of every last detail and it really does feel a home away from home. It’s so utterly relaxing – even with a 5 year old & 3 year old! The location is just superb for exploring the New Forest. Our highlights: supper at the White Buck (really delicious food and great for kids), the walk out of the garden gate into the woods and down to Mill Lawn, a visit to Beaulieu Motor Museum (lots to do apart from cars) and a gorgeous walk on ornamental drive from Blackwater car park (1.5 mile tall trees walk is perfect for kids). We loved Shappen Stores in Burley too – it has everything you need! Thank you Amanda and team for making our stay so warm and cosy. An extra big thank you from Rosie and charlie for their presents & easter eggs. Such a lovely idea. We will be back!
Thank you for a lovely stay at Twin Cottage. Everything was perfect and we loved the little touches to welcome us like the bread, music and gifts for the children. We would love to come back again soon. Beatrice loved the pillows and her anabelle doll, thank you.
Our second visit. Even more delightful than the first. Thoughtful touches, warm welcome and cosy fires make for such a relaxing stay. A real home away from home. Thank you.
Our second visit to Twin Cottage, we love it!! Even in January when the weather is bad we still have the fireplaces and the children love all the toys and books in the house. We hope to visit Twin Cottage again!
Thank you so much for the wonderful stay! We’ve had the best stay we have had here & the warmest welcome of any cottage we have stayed in. I’m sure we will be back!
Lovely 4 days at the cottage, beautiful house and all the extra touches and gifts are so thoughtful. It was amazing not to have to bring anything for the kids and just turn up and relax! We will definately be coming back and telling our friends. Thank you so much! xx
What a great cottage – and well equipped for our children. We had a wonderful time here and would love to come back one day. The girls really enjoyed Peppa Pig World. Thank you!!
Thank you for a lovely stay at Twin Cottage. We had a very relaxing break. The cottage is perfect for parents and toddler with every detail thought through. Harry loved all the toys! Thank you for all the welcoming touches, that made us feel at home straight away.
We have had a fabulous break and everything in the cottage is perfect. Thank you for Daniels present and all the lovely toys. It was hard to get him out of the cottage to go anywhere! We would recommend Exbury Gardens (steam train a big hit), Hatchet Pond for walk & picnic, Highcliffe Castle for beach and afternoon tea, Bournemouth beach & aquarium, Wilverley Inclosure for walks and dens built in woods by scouts. Thank you for a lovely stay and all the treats. Wish we were staying longer…
Thank you for a lovely stay. Twin Cottage is a perfect retreat for toddler twins and their frazzled parents! Evie and Isobel had lots of fun playing with all the toys and thank you for their thoughtful gifts. We all enjoyed the beautiful surroundings and would love to come back again.
A wonderful home away from home – it just doesn’t feel like your average rented holiday house! You had everything here and the complimentary items were perfect. The kids loved all the toys and the garden and have built a new home in the forest. Thank you
We have had a wonderful weekend at Twin Cottage – we all had a marvellous time cycling in the New Forest and playing at Avon Beach in the glorious weather. The cottage is perfect for a family break – the flowers, fresh bread & presents for the children set it apart from anywhere else! Thank you.
Thank you for a wonderful week. The cottage was filled with everything we needed plus some little extra luxuries. The kids loved the playroom and the garden. The cottage is well located for outdoor activities, we enjoyed cycling, walking & beaches.
We had a lovely stay despite the rain! Took your advice and went crab fishing in Mudeford with your buckets and drop net. We did this in horizontal rain! We also went to liberty raptors to see the birds of prey – brilliant and they have a huge sandpit too. Thanks for the presents and welcome pack.
Having worked in the travel industry for over 20 yrs, I have been lucky enough to stay in lots of 5 & 6 star hotels. I have struggled since having children to find something that was up to those standards, well not anymore! Your cottage is beautiful and the extra touches make your stay perfect. Thank you we have loved our stay and hope to come again soon! Paul, Helen, Ethay aged 2 & Layla aged 3 months, Surrey
Second time to Twin Cottage and it was a lovely stay again, we will be back! Such a warm welcome and well prepared and we love the New Forest. Thank you.
Last minute trip to Twin Cottage. As ever it is a superb retreat and we have vowed to come back soon.
Our stay was so relaxing here! I have been coming here since I was a baby. All of the food you put out and the presents were all wonderful! I loved all the teas and i wish i could have stayed longer. ( Gina aged 11)
The above was by my little sister. I have been coming to Twin Cottage since i was a baby and now it feels much like a second home to me. I am 16 years old now and whilst i grow, i feel as if the forest has grown with me, all in good ways of course. I always look forward to coming back here. (Isabella aged 16)
Lovely week in the New Forest, Peppa Pig World was a highlight. Thanks for all the thoughtful touches, Mary loved her present and all the toys – especially the dolls house. It was hard to get her out of the house some days. Hope to be back.
Our second stay at Twin Cottage. There’s something magical about this place. In through the door and you immediately feel at home, happy, relaxed. Thank you for the welcome food and gift for M and thanks for all the little thoughtful touches – fresh flowers, shopping neatly put away, cbeebies already on the tv (!). Love the bath and love seeing ponies directly outside the gate. We will be back I’m sure!
Thank you for a great weekend. We loved the cottage and Rafe loved his present. We would love to return.
Fantastic cottage, a child’s dream. Everything is thought about. We had a great weekend and enjoyed returning to our holiday home after a long day exploring. Thank you!
Great toys and gifts. Merci Beaucoup (in very large letters in our visitors book with pictures of flowers, hearts and bunting – made us smile)
Wow! The Cottage has been better each time we have come! Particularly this time, with a 2 year old in tow we have had a wonderful, relaxing break! Samuel loved all the new toys – inside and out. Thank you also for his gift. We will be back again for sure. We love it down here and Samuel has really enjoyed himself. Thanks for all the little touches that have helped to mae this such an enjoyable stay.
