WELCOME TO THE NEW FOREST
WHY WOULDN'T YOU?.....
Come and stay in the fabulous New Forest, where you will be treated to beautiful vistas of forest and heathland whilst never being far from the stunning unspoilt coastline offering views of the Isle of Wight. Our cottages range from a cosy annexe perfect for two through to large properties for a big family get-together or group of friends to enjoy. All our properties are presented to a high standard and equipped for all your needs to ensure a welcoming and effortless stay.
Browse through our site to view our current list of available properties situated in the New Forest.
Following the loosening of restrictions from 19 July we are delighted to be able to offer our guests the full experience of the New Forest with activities and hospitality opening up fully again.
It is such a wonderful feeling to see our cottages being enjoyed again and being used to give everyone a much needed change of atmosphere and a feeling of hope for the future......
A few changes at the moment:
We currently have reduced manpower hours so please be patient if our response time is not quite as quick as usual!
We are experiencing really high levels of demand (which is great!) and for this reason we will only be accepting bookings of 7 nights minimum stay during the period of April-September.
Please be assured that our cleaning teams are fully conversant with the guidelines for cleaning procedures during this Pandemic as recommended by the Tourism and Hospitality Industry and will be continuing to apply the same practices until notified otherwise.
We have adjusted our check in time to 4pm to allow for this.
We are still mindful of all playing our part in enabling this level of freedom after so long and so would encourage our guests to carry on using the hand sanitisers provided at the properties and to wear masks in areas where there may be a high density of people or indeed in enclosed venues for your safety and for the safety of others.
Our Covid cancellation policy
In the event of having to cancel your booking due to Government retrictions we will only withhold the non-refundable admin fee of £50.00. Any other monies paid will be fully refunded.
Alternatively we can offer a change of dates or property if that is possible. Any subsequent requests to change dates or property will carry another admin charge of £50.00.
A regular guest of Japonica Cottage says.....
'We have had a lovely time in this wonderful cottage. Its such a shame that we have to go home. The weather has been brilliant.
We weren't sure we would be coming this year, with the coronavirus, but it's been lovely to still have a holiday, and be somewhere different.
We have felt safe in the cottage with all the added hygiene measures you have put in place. The cottage was spotless as usual and the foot operated hand gel in the entrance hall was frequently used. You also supplied hand gel by all the sinks and plenty of cleaning products.
I was very happy to seal the bedding and towels up as we left, as an added hygiene precaution.
There is so much to do, even with the the restrictions, all the shops and restaurants in the area are compliant all the revelant regulations.
See you next year.'
