Orchardside is a delightful two storey annexe attached to Penn Farm House, and is in the perfect location for cyclists and dog walkers alike (up to two dogs accepted). With direct access straight on to this beautiful part of the New Forest, its own orchard area for relaxing on lazy afternoons, and an open fire for cosy evenings in, this well-equipped and comfortably furnished holiday home is the perfect country retreat.

A short walk across fields will take you to the idyllic Fry’s Copse – full of bluebells in Spring – and a few steps across the road will find you on Penn Common, owned and managed by The National Trust, where ponies, donkeys, pigs, sheep and cattle are able to roam freely.

Orchardside is also conveniently positioned for day trips to surrounding villages, towns and attractions.  Paultons Theme Park and Peppa Pig World are just three miles away;  Lyndhurst, the capital of the New Forest,  with its many restaurants and tearooms, is only a short drive; and the charming market town of Romsey, with its beautiful Norman Abbey, the city of Southampton, with its shopping centre and marina, and the historic cathedral city Salisbury, are all within easy reach.

Our stay at Orchardside was the best place we have stayed in the New Forest with wonderful and friendly hosts. Highly recommend.

June 2019

Had a wonderful week in the beautiful New Forest. Our stay was made extra special by having such a great place to stay. Very well equipped accommodation....we had everything we needed. Hazel and Brian were great hosts and had thought of everything. The views are stunning from each window of Orchardside and it was so peaceful. We have been truly spoilt ....thank you .

June 2019

We received a very warm welcome from the owners of the cottage. The cottage itself was very well equipped, comfortable and spotlessly clean. We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Orchardside.

April 2019

Really enjoyed our stay - one of the best we have stayed at with New Forest Cottages. The owners Hazel and Brian were very welcoming

September 2018

Would happily recommend it to anyone

September 2018

Had a lovely and very comfortable stay at Orcharside. Hasel was a wonderful host. Will definitely be returning.

August 2018

The best place we have ever stayed in, location is amazing for local pubs and walks and to mingle with the ponies, donkeys and cattle.

July 2018

Very well maintained and clean property. Lovely surroundings. Enjoyed our stay very much.

June 2018

We were made very welcome by Mr and Mrs Quinn. They have obviously gone the extra mile to make their property pleasant and homely. We really enjoyed it.

June 2018

We had a wonderful few days. The house was very well furnished and was equipped with everything we needed for a happy stay. The orchard next to the hotel is beautiful and the opportunities for walks, nice pubs and visiting other small towns were perfect. We booked this location because we knew we were visiting Peppa Pig world with our two year old son. The park was fab, and we were very impressed. Luckily the remainder of our trip (which included lots of walks, a trip to Portsmouth and a few pub trips) was equally as lovely. Very relaxing and we all came away feeling like the batteries had been charged. I would highly recommend this place.

April 2018

We had a fantastic stay wish we had booked a week. If you go on a holiday weekend and want to eat out book before hand as all the pubs where fully booked.

October 2017

We love this cottage and garden, the location is the best we've stayed in the New Forest, this was our second stay here and we'd love to go back!

September 2017

We loved every minute of our stay. The cottage was spotless and so well equipped. We were made to feel very welcome with our dog, 2 year old and young baby and the lovely hosts even provided a cot, high chair, stair gate etc. The location was excellent and we loved seeing the hosts' ponies and amazing views from the windows. On leaving the farm, you're on Penn Common which has more animals than we've ever seen in the New Forest. Several great pubs within walking distance. A true gem.

September 2017

A very comfortable cottage that we enjoyed very much. Loved the shower! Well situated for good walks and within reach of good pubs for lovely meals.

September 2017

Wonderful accommodation. The layout and room sizes are perfect. We and our 2 children 13 and 16 had a lovely time. Lots of ponies, pigs and sheep nearby. Owls hooting at night. Lovely weather. Hosts very welcoming. Nearby pubs great for evening meals. Location perfect for exploring the New Forest. Would definitely recommend. We will be back!

August 2017

We had a lovely stay at Orchardside. Hazel was very welcoming and gave us some great recommendations for things to do and places to eat with young children in tow. The cottage itself was well equipped, and I didn't find myself wanting for anything when cooking dinner. The bedrooms were comfy and cosy with good quality linen , big fluffy pillows etc. The cottage is well situated with an orchard that the kids could explore and play in. We did several cycle rides directly from the front door. All in all, a brilliant holiday. My only wish is that we'd booked two weeks instead of one!

July 2017

We had a lovely stay. The location was perfect for us as you could cycle out the gate and always see ponies, cows, or other animals grazing on the common. It was wonderfully quiet despite being conveniently located just a few minutes' drive from the edge of the forest, making the trip in and out hassle free. Hazel and Brian have created a wonderful holiday home with every comfort you could need. We can't wait to stay again.

July 2017

We really loved the location of Orchardside. It was so peaceful. The hosts were extremely friendly and couldn't have done any more to make us feel welcome. The little touches in the cottage made it a real home from home......the biscuits were very welcome! There is everything in the kitchen to make meal prep a breeze. We very nearly didn't leave.

June 2017

A delightful, very clean and well equiped cottage in a stunning location. Hazel and Brian were perfect hosts and made us feel very welcome. A superb place to stay for exploring the New Forest and surrounding area, or just relaxing in the garden.

June 2017

Fabulous holiday at Orchardside, very peaceful with no traffic to be heard. Excellent walking straight from the door, better than expected. Still accessible to local amenities and eateries. Hazel and Brian were excellent hosts. Very helpful and knowledgeable of the local area, they really made our holiday that bit more special. Lovely gardens to relax in and cottage lovely. We will definitely be back.

March 2017

A beautiful cottage with everything I needed for a relaxing short break. Wonderful attention from the owner who couldn't be more helpful and friendly. Immaculate property well stocked. Great location and within distance of lots of places to visit but nice and quiet away from everything. Will definitely go back soon

March 2017

The owners of the property were really amazing and helpful. Besides the fact that their property is beautiful, they added various special touches to make us feel at home (fresh milk and eggs in the fridge, biscuits, tea, fresh flowers, etc.). Thank you for a lovely stay!

June 2016

Lovely property in a beautiful location. Owners were on site and very friendly, welcoming and helpful. The property had everything we needed and more; stunning gardens and surroundings to explore, well equipped kitchen and bathroom plus wonderful views. An ideal property to enjoy if you wish to relax and enjoy natural unspoilt surroundings, with walks from the door.

An easily found and booked property. Good communication, generally a good easy experience. A good well appointed property, owners made us feel very welcome, and very knowledgeable about the forest and surrounding area. Would go back again.

October 2015

We received a very warm welcome when we arrived at Orchardside and found the cottage was extremely well equipped (one of the best we have stayed in), very clean, comfortable and homely. It is situated in a beautiful part of the forest and we had a wonderful week. The owners were very helpful and also on hand if needed. This was our first visit to the New Forest and apart from the excellent accommodation and location we had sunshine and blue skies every day. Perfect in every way and a truly unforgettable holiday.

September 2015

We had a wonderful holiday at Orchardside at Penn Farm, everything we needed was there. The cottage was very comfortable, it was peaceful and relaxing.

August 2015

Orchardside at Penn Farm is a real home away from home thanks to the little touches and the warm welcome from Hazel and Brian. You will have everything you need and more, and Hazel will furnish you with all the information you need to ensure that you have the perfect holiday; places to visit, places to eat, routes to walk ... her knowledge is outstanding. The New Forest is beautiful and for a horsey girl (44 is still a girl, right?) like me it has been a truly magical experience !

June 2015

We have a pet dog and knew that Penn Farm accommodated him but we did not know just how well; the garden is enclosed and very large. It gave us peace of mind and made our stay perfect

May 2015

We have all enjoyed ourselves! Thank you to the owners for being so helpful ... a lovely welcome made us feel relaxed, bluebell copse was breathtaking, house has everything, very well equipped. Thank you!

May 2015

We have greatly appreciated the peace, tranquility and location. There are so many lovely places to visit and to eat in the vicinity, we have been spoilt for choice. NB We would recommend the view of the stars from the orchard on a clear night!

May 2015

Comfortable accommodation in a lovely part of the forest. Our children loved all the animals!

May 2015

Thank you for everything - the warm welcome, excellent advice for local trips and a lovely place to stay. We were very comfortable and really appreciated the little extras.

April 2015

We really enjoyed our stay there. Mrs Quinn was so helpful, the house was extremely well equipped with basics that you don't always get when hiring a cottage like toilet rolls, kitchen roll, cling film, soap, washing up liquid etc.

April 2015

'Thank you so much for a wonderful stay at Orchardside. A very warm welcome and we liked the way you showed us where everything was on arrival. We really appreciated all the extras provided and enjoyed mastering the art of building the fires on cold afternoons! We will definitely come back to stay. Thank you'
