A gem of a property. Tucked away in a secluded garden area with everything you could possibly need to make for a perfect break. Its location is great, only a few minutes from the coast or the New Forest. John and Liz are so friendly. They live on site and are always on hand if required but very discreet when not needed.

This is a beaytiful bijou holiday home with a lovely sunny garden. Situated a short drive from the sea and forest, it is a great place to unwind and explore all the New Forest has to offer. I particularly liked the decor of the cabin - very light and airy with original artwork. The hosts are on hand for any needed help and advice and while friendlyRead more and helpful are not intrusive. The garden is full of bird song and we saw a little owl in a tree from the garden as well as a variety of song birds Hide

Jobber's Retreat ticked all of our boxes. Great hosts, an immaculate and well equipped property, in beautiful grounds and in a superb location to explore the New Forest and it's coast. And it is within easy reach of Christchurch , Poole, Bournemouth and the Isle of Wight. So something for everyone.

Fabulous space really well laid out it had everything you could need, it was so cozy and comfortable. The touch of leaving bread, eggs, butter and milk was lovely and really unexpected. So nice to have the personal run through on arrival, shows how much you care about the place. We would definitely come back again, possibly when its a bit warmer!

Friendly welcome. Very well equipped cottage. Garden is fully enclosed and very safe for our Gordon setter. Great location and very easy to visit New Forest attractions. Whilst there are pubs in walking distance we felt that with the darker evenings and lack of pavement in some areas it would be safer to drive.
