It was wonderful. The photos didn't do it justice. The sea was so close, the views wonderful, the garden beautiful and such lovely proximity to wild ponies, cattle and birds. Housekeeper was very friendly and helpful and it was a wonderful place to be.

September 2017

Dear New Forest Team, we really had a great holiday and wanted to say a big thank you for the perfect organisation. Sowley Gate House was wonderful, everything was perfect. We never had such lovely house in such wonderful and quiet place. We enjoyed these 2 weeks in the New Forest, made a lot of trips nearby and relaxed in the afternoon with sitting in the garden and listening to the see, the birds and were surprised about the horses and ponys all around. Thanks also June for warm welcome and giving us informations about interesting places to visit. We hope to be back sometimes and will never forget the days in Sowley Gate House.

June 2017

We had a lovely time! We've never stayed in a holiday cottage so well equipped - I don't think there was anything we wanted in the kitchen that we didn't find with a bit of searching, and there were loads of garden games in the utility room and play equipment in the garden, and so much room for the children to run around. And lots of games in the dining room, including an excellent wooden 3D game of noughts and crosses which the broken boy and Grandpa played with again and again. The scenery is stunning, the views across the Solent amazing, and the peace and tranquillity was just absolute bliss. We'll definitely come back, hopefully this time all in one piece!

April 2017

Staying at Sowley Gate gives a time of tranquility in this crazy world. It suits all ages and all generations. Please convey our sincere thanks to Penny and June for their input. Is there any chance of a weekend break in the low season ? Joan S

July 2015

We had a fabulous family holiday to celebrate a special occasion and a birthday, The situation of the cottage was brilliant, right on the Solent, so we were able to put our kayaks directly into the water. The weather could not have been better, thank you

June 2015

Used New Forest Cottages on 8 occasions now and every time exceeded up to expectations.
