“What a lovely space! Think: stylish Swedish cabin, with homely touches. Amanda has thought of everything you might need and then some. She kindly got me wholemeal bread, and non-dairy spread. There was so much choice for breakfast, and very handy to have a fridge and microwave. A comfy armchair area and lots of dvds to wind down, which was perfect for me as I was travelling solo for work. Outside there was my own little summer house with chinenea and other seating. Really amazing value, and little touches beyond the norm I am used to when travelling so much for work. I will most definitely stay again.”
Situated on the edge of the New Forest and within the boundary of the New Forest National Park Badgers Rest at Oakhurst has recently been renovated and offers modern contemporary accommodation for those who want a break away from the hustle and bustle. There are ample opportunities for walking and cycling and the beautiful Jurassic coast is within easy driving distance. The major cities of Bournemouth, Southampton and Salisbury are all within a 20 mile radius.
“We stayed at Badgers Rest at the beginning of March and we couldn’t recommend both the hosts & the place enough! Unfortunately we had to cut our trip short, but the time we had at Badgers Rest was just lovely. We were greeted with such warmth and everything was explained and shown - the extra touches of PROPER coffee (thank you!) little snacks and a bottle of chilled fizz for a birthday treat was so heart warming. The house is spotlessly clean, and everything from the linen, towels, kitchen equipment is high quality. My favourite area without doubt was the bedroom - it’s spacious, cosy and just luxury. The bathroom & en-suite are top end spec too which is lovely. My husbands favourite spot of the house was the well equipped lounge, overlooking the garden to see Tilly the woofer running about. Thank you to Caroline & Kevin for a lovely time xxx”
The Barn is a delightful studio apartment, situated next to our family home in the quaint village of Burley, New Forest. Recently refurbished, the barn features an open plan living, kitchen and sleeping area with its own private entrance and small outside space with eating area and space for a BBQ. It is a truly fantastic base for you to enjoy what the national park has to offer; including walking, bike riding, horse riding, or exploring the beaches of the south coast.
“We have been looking for a nice airbnb within walking distance of both countryside and pubs, without traffic noise and close to a list of interesting things to do, and Emily's place delivers on all of these 100%. Clean, wholesome, cosy, quiet, with everything you might need for a few days in the New Forest. The wifi was great and the bed and sofa comfortable, the kitchen worked really well and the space is bigger than it looks in the photos. Having a smart TV was an added bonus for darker spring evenings. The view pictured is less than a minute's walk through trees opposite, and is absolutely stunning. There are also hiking and cycling trails accessible directly from the property. Situated about a mile down a track, you are right in the woodland, but with very quick access to the village of Burley. Emily and her family were on hand and incredibly friendly and helpful, but the space also felt private and an independent unit. With the heathland, the forest, the coast, some interesting cities and the Isle of Wight all within an easy drive, we wished we have been there for a week rather than a couple of nights and hope to be back as soon as possible.”
