Endymion Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
This charming, single-storey, detached lodge is a timber structure set in the grounds of the owner's cottage in the little hamlet of Linwood. Set in the heart of the New Forest National Park and surrounded by ancient woodland, this cosy little Hampshire cottage has a warming woodburning stove - perfect for cooler evenings - as well as a comfortable bedroom with en-suite shower room. The cottage is well situated for walking as well as access to all the local amenities available throughout the area.

Area
Composed of a scattering of farms and cottages, the little hamlet of Linwood is found towards the western end of the New Forest National Park, not far from Ringwood - a community well served by two pubs renowned for their good food and real ales. The New Forest, the country's smallest National Park, is comprised of 150 square miles of magnificent woodland and heather covered heathland dotted with picturesque villages. The area is famous for its unusual wildlife such as herds of wild ponies, cattle and deer, and a great many species of birds. The forest is full of wonderful paths, which are great for walking, cycling and horse riding with bike hire and pony trekking available from nearby Burley. The famous National Motor Museum at Beaulieu is within easy reach, as are the stunning gardens at Exbury.

The cottage feels like something Snow White and the Seven Dwarves would live in - it is very sweet.
Mr Buss

Quiet but not off the beaten track from all main attractions. Unbelievably comfortable bed. Have already recommended to family and friends.
Mr Cartey
October 2015
Ideal location right in the middle of the forest. Well thought out and very quaint. A great get away from everything and our dog also had a great time.

It was a lovely little chalet set in the heart of the New Forest. The owners made us feel very welcome. There was a log burner that we used on a couple of evenings that made the place feel warm cosy. We sat outside in the late afternoon morning, and watched the birds on the feeders, including a pair of lovely spotted woodpeckers. Would definitely recommend to our friends family, and will be back again.
Mrs Shipp

It is dog friendly and in an excellent location. We will return in 2016 for fifth time.

A lovely quaint little cottage in a quiet area, with short walks to two lovely pubs. There were lots of walks nearby for the dog.
Mrs Green

We have just spent an amazing weekend here. We didn't want to come home and we wish we could of stayed longer. The area was lovely and peaceful and the local pubs were in walking distance and very friendly. The whole weekend was just amazing.

This was the getaway holiday I was after. A welcome pack on arrival was a pleasant surprise. Close to local areas of interest. Two pubs within 1.2 miles. Thought about stealing the bed as it was so comfortable!
Mrs Watson
December 2014
Lovely area with a pub that had vegetarian/vegan options. Nice touch with the bird feeders in the garden. We sat and watched the birds every morning and I practiced my wildlife photography. Lots of walks right on our door step. This was a great location for us, particularly me since I am involved in wildlife conservation. I was able to set up camera traps (without worrying they would go missing) in the area and capture wonderful images of nocturnal animals we may have otherwise missed. The cottage itself was cosy and the wood burner kept us warm after a day of trekking through the forest with our extremely tired 'kids' aka the dogs. We found lovely vegan places to eat 20 mins from the cottage on the few occasions we did venture outside the forest.

Lovely accommodation, wonderful surroundings and friendly people.
Mrs Long

It was a nice place to escape the big smoke and we were left to come and go as we pleased. Definitely a good place if you like to get away from it all!
Mrs Potts

We liked that we were able to take our dogs with us. The location was stunning with great walks and two very nice pubs within easy walking distance. The wildlife was amazing and the setting peaceful.
Mrs Connor
April 2014
Cosy, comfortable and peaceful lodge in wonderful setting, surrounded by wildlife, flora and fauna. Haven for animal lovers. Walks from doorstep and close to two good country pubs both dog friendly and welcoming. We loved it and will be back.
Mr Stow
December 2014
Brilliant location in the middle of the New Forest, great for walking and getting away from it all. No phone or Wifi signal meant we could forget work.
Mr Faulks
February 2014
Peaceful and quiet. Beautiful surroundings and a relaxing atmosphere. A nice, cosy cabin with a great pub only half a mile up the road; dogs allowed in the bar and food serving area.

Mr Townsend

Mrs Hooper
April 2014
The little extras that were left by the very friendly owners were very much appreciated. This is a great holiday if you are looking for a great hideaway with no Wi-Fi, broadband service or TV.
Ms Fennesy
July 2014
Superb - a quirky cabin in a perfect location a gem of a find. It was off the beaten track but directions were perfect. You can feel the pressure lifting as you walked the paths nearby and relaxed watching the wild birds in the garden. The owners were welcoming and supplied a very welcome pack on arrival with a fresh flower too!
Mrs Hutchings
August 2014
Owners were great, very friendly but also left us to enjoy our holiday. The accommodation was ideal for a couple with dogs. It suited us 100%, we are going to go back. Brilliant location too.
Ms Cryer
February 2013
The cottage owners were very friendly and went out if their way to make us feel welcome. The cottage was in a beautiful setting and was beyond our expectations. We had a brilliant stay at Endymion.
Mrs Haines
February 2013
We had a great time staying here and loved the fact it was literally in the middle of nowhere with lots of nice walks and a great local pub with good food and drinks within walking distance. Plenty of other stuff to do just short drives away. The owners were very polite leaving us a welcome pack. The red wine was very much enjoyed after our drive down. The fire and enclosed back garden were great for our two dogs.
Mrs Sanigar
December 2013

Ms Rich

I liked being in the New Forest and the log burner was brilliant. Nice that the owner left basics ie milk etc and a bottle of wine.
Mr Bawden
October 2013
The lodge was in the most perfect place it could possible have been in. We had a very relaxing holiday away from all the touristy places, but the towns where close if we needed to go there. We enjoyed so many walks. We hope to get back there to enjoy another relaxing break.
Mr Clarke
March 2012
The chalet was beautiful, ideal location and cosy. Right on footpaths into the forest. Had some lovely walks and runs with my dogs. Great to see so many ponies and donkeys coming to feed at the cottage!
Ms Bestonso
January 2012
Fantastic timber lodge in a brilliant location, with a lovely food pub which welcomes dogs, just a short walk away. Lovely to have your own separate garden and to be able to step straight out into the New Forest with wild ponies etc. Definitely recommend!
Miss Hunt
February 2012
The owners couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming. We needed a little extra help as we came on our motorbike and then the freezing temperatures hit! Endymion is gorgeous with everything you need. We will stay longer next time and when its warmer. We may also invest in satnav for the bike! Many thanks.
Mr Forbes
January 2012
The cabin was in a particularly secluded area which is great for anyone with dogs, and they provided a secure garden to allow somewhere for the dogs to roam safely. The cabin was perfectly equipped and made a lovely escape for two people.
Mr Newman

The holiday was excellent. The location beautiful with boundless walks. The cottage was at a very high standard with everything we needed plus more. The private garden allowed our dogs to go out when they needed. A truly relaxing holiday in beautiful surroundings.
Mrs Francis
January 2012
We loved how cosy the little cabin was - a little chilly initially but it soon warmed up with the wood burning stove on full blast. Beautiful setting, and so peaceful - just what we needed!
Mr Ullah

Mr Dobson
February 2012
Very warm and cosy despite a few bitter nights. Home comforts were provided on our arrival. Very relaxing and peaceful.
Mr Brosnan
August 2012
Very tranquil and peaceful. A good place to get away from everything and enjoy our honeymoon. The owner kept us company down the local from time to time and was at hand if needed. Many many thanks.
Mr Beal
March 2012
The Cottage was nicely tucked away a mile or so from any main road and so peaceful. Out of the gate and straight onto the New Forest, and a less touristy bit at that. Our dog loved it, as did we. Also, although the owners lived in the next cottage, we never saw them, it was just wonderful.

Mrs Reeves

An idyllic location. A small cosy cottage, in an enviable position. Owners very friendly, would highly recommend. The High Corner Inn serves excellent food. The area is ideal for dogs which are accepted at the Inn.

This charming little chalet was set in a quiet part of the new forest..an ideal location if you want to drop off the map.we were left some provisions to get us started along with flowers on the table & a bottle of wine.there was a woodburner to keep the chalet cosy in the evening along with a plentiful supply of wood.a bbq where they even left a supply of charcoal..we took our two dogs that were welcome as there was an enclosed garden.we sat and watched various colourful birds on the feeders in the late afternoon including a pair of woodpeckers.a pub that did food & had a large was a 10 minute walk down the lane.thoroughly recommended relaxing break & we shall be returning.

Location very peaceful, with the New Forest on my doorstep and ponies at the front gate in the morning. Easy access to all parts of forest. Lovely coastline not far away. Owners friendly.

Such a shame we managed to book up in November time, and it turned out to be when the big freeze (Feb) was happening. Despite this, the place was beautiful, warm, clean and welcoming and the hosts so friendly and helpful( esp.when my partners motorbike got stuck in the unexpected snow!). Really gorgeous clean, cosy place with some surprise welcome provisions. Loads to do. Just take a satnav and go when the weather's a little less treacherous!

This cabin in right in the forest and a great place to stay for a break. We stayed for a week with our 2 dogs and loved it. Yes, it is small, but it is a cabin so that's to be expected - if you read the property details your expectations should be set correctly. Kitchen facilities are limited but there is a barbecue (coal was also provided!). There are 2 pubs within walking distance - 1 about 8 mins and the other 45 mins - both of which welcome dogs and have a good selection of food and drink. The owners dogs were out in the garden but were very friendly and at no time attempted to get into our part of the garden. Before we left we were already discussing when we could come back again, fantastic week and can't wait for our next visit.

We stayed for a week and feel it was more suited for a long weekend. Although we both loved the charm of the cottage I don't feel we would particularly return. The forest location is great really quiet, however from the photos shown we assumed we would be away from other properties, we weren't we were in the same yard as the owners who had two noisy dogs. I am frightened of alsations and found it intimidating. They also had a number of cars on the from including a souped up Peugeot that came growling up the path at times. Three of the table lights didn't work and we only saw the owner once and we were desperate for more wood so ended up buying candles to use instead of getting bulbs. The kitchen was small with no oven so cooking was a pain. It was fine for the short time we spent inside and the owner was lovely but personal preference we wouldn't go back.

The place was truly beautiful, the forest amazing with animals running free. But the cottage was right next to owners house who were always snooping around, knocking on our door and rudely threw us out at 9.55 am ( 10 am is usually the leaving hour). Won't repeat or recommend!

We stayed in a lovely little rustic cabin in the New Forest. Located in a quiet area of the owners garden. Very relaxing and tranquil. Walks on the doorstep. Very dog friendly. Pub within walking distance, serving good food. Sadly, we found when lighting the woodburner, we were unable to relax infront of the fire. The front of the woodburner did not have glass that you could see through, and so we were not able to see the flame. This was a shame, as this was one of the main reasons we rented the cabin. We also found that the en-suite shower room had a strong odour from the damp. Only having an electric wall heater, which we found very warm, but not enough to stop the damp smell.

Great location just a shame about the cleanliness of the cottage and the crockery etc. Very dark inside and all rather grubby & 'tired. Lots of cobwebs & spiders. Could be made into a wonderful romantic getaway with some money spending on the interior. New pillows etc would certainly help. Finding snails climbing up the bathroom walls was not the best experience. The bed settee couldn't be used properly as not really enough space to put up safely. Cooking facilities very basic. On a positive note the bottle of wine & flowers were a nice gesture. The pictures on the website are also out of date. High Corner pub (just a short walk/drive away) do a wonderful Sunday lunch carvery and good evening meals.

Have to say I was a little disappointed with this property. Yes it is tucked away in some fantastic countryside with some great walks right on the doorstep but in reality it is a small wooden cabin which can only be easily accessed with a 4x4 vehicle as it is reached in either direction for at least a mile along a rough, potholed forest track (in fairness to the owner he was improving the worse of the ruts near the cabin when we were there). Although the owner has made some nice little homely touches the kitchen is tiny and along with the bathroom just about adequate but nothing special. Although there is a woodburner it is cracked and in need of replacement so is not very efficient at heating up the property which, due to its construction, is very draughty in cold weather. The property looked as if it could do with a bit of a facelift and some new furniture - the dining table and chairs are very wobbly. It's a good base if you are looking for somewhere within easy reach of Ringwood/Christchurch/Beaulieu etc, all of which are an easy drive away, or you like walking/have dogs and don't intend doing much cooking and are only going to return to the cabin to sleep. Oh, and if it's important to you to have a decent mobile signal/broadband access this property is not for you! Mobile signal very patchy, only worked on and off nearby and not in the cabin. There are a great couple of pubs within walking distance, both of which are very friendly, welcome muddy boots/paws and serve great value food. The Red Shoot is about 25 mins walk from Endymion, High Corner Inn about 15 mins away.

arrived early but no problem owner greeted us and told us whats what and where it is. they also supplied a bottle of wine, milk, etc etc and brought us a drink when we went to the local pub. The home was great and the location was very peaceful. The amenities where ok but could do with a cooker and oven than just the rings. Even our dogs had bowls supplied for them This was the first of many visits we will be making. Both local pubs can be got to by walking. Best trying the Red Shoot its open allday all year round. Seeing the Horses, Cows and Pigs walking about free was really nice. Our only downside was the rain but it was November
