The Experience

This pretty Victorian cottage feels completely private as the surrounding houses are hidden by trees, and a gate at the bottom of the garden leads directly onto the New Forest. Although Amanda has thought of everything children – and their parents – could want for the perfect holiday, she can transform the house into a romantic bolthole too.

Find supplies for breakfast in the kitchen, and a freshly baked loaf waiting in the bread machine. A wrapped present waits for each child, wine and chocolate for adults, and there are unlimited logs for the two wood-burners – plus an array of full-size products in the bathroom along with fluffy robes.

The big back garden has a long lawn perfect for racing around, an eating out space with a barbecue (charcoal provided) and a little children’s bench area which also contains a sandpit. Stroll to the White Buck pub in 15 minutes for excellent food or walk to Burley in half an hour; the pretty seaside town of Milford is a 20-minute drive.

Reviews

Another brilliant stay at Twin Cottage & our first escape in the Covid-19 world. Amanda has done a brilliant job adapting the cottage to meet new safety and cleanliness standards whilst ensuring it keeps its charm and that there are plenty of toys & fun things for the children to do (toys are rotated every stay to keep guests safe). It's a beautiful cottage with a lovely garden, with everything you need to feel at home, bake, cook, BBQ & for the children to have a magical time spotting ponies in the New Forest whilst you have a glass of vino from the local Shappen Stores! Can't wait to return!

Amazing little cottage. Everything has been thought of to make a family holiday stress free. Great location - so much within a 30 min drive.

Anita, London

We had a wonderful stay at Twin Cottage, and I could not find anything negative even if I tried. Amanda has thought of everything, starting with the scent of baking bread welcoming us on arrival. The child-friendliness here doesn't consist of just a cot and a high chair, either. There are toys and games for all age groups, there are spades, buckets, fishing nets, beach towels supplied, and all is lovingly decorated and clean and simply beautiful. And not only for the kids! Amanda was extremely helpful and welcoming and we can‘t wait to return for a longer stay.

This is the first child-orientated place I've inspected and I was blown away by the attention to detail. I can't imagine a more perfect place for a stressed, city based family - even if it was raining. But it would also make a lovely romantic getaway place for a couple for a few days. It's sublimely comfortable and beautifully furnished and I can't think of a thing Amanda has not catered for.

Location

The neighbourhood

Nearby Burley has an excellent village shop/butcher which is open until 7pm. The Cider Pantry, a five-minute drive, is an all-day cafe selling local cider; The Oak Inn, 10 minutes' drive, has lovely food. Adults will love The Pig in Brockenhurst and Verveine Fishmarket Restaurant in Milford on Sea. There are lovely beaches at Avon and Mudeford, a 20-minute drive, and Peppa Pig World is a similar distance. Slightly further afield is the sweet Longdown Dairy Farm which has lambs to pet and feed and tiny tractors to ride on.

Local points of interest from Amanda Webb

  • Ponies and cattle roam freely around this lovely village. Burley is one of the few remaining villages that still practices the old tradition of Commoning, allowing animals to graze on the open forest.
  • Enjoy a leisurely exploration of Burley and the surrounding forest with Burley Wagon Rides. A choice of 20, 30 and 60 minute rides take visitors through the village and woodland pulled along by the two shire horses.
  • Hire bikes in the village and you’ll be able to cycle along the Old Railway, visit the Deer Sanctuary, enjoy the Woodland Trails and see Deer and other forest wildlife.
  • Take a 20 min drive to Highcliffe Castle and walk down to the Beach Hut Café at Friar’s Cliff via Steamer Point a local nature reserve. There are outstanding views from the cliff tops, woodland trails, ponds, picnic areas with benches overlooking the sea.
  • Explore Moors Valley Park (15 minute drive). Play Trail (suitable for pushchairs) with its unique wooden play equipment, Adventure playground, Model Steam Railway and look out for the Gruffalo Sculptures in the forest picnic area.

Introducing

Amanda Webb

Amanda bought the house at the back of the cottage first and then the cottage as soon as it came on the market. She has worked tirelessly to make it a perfect place for a stressed family with young children and apart from her little army of cleaning ladies she does everything herself. Her greatest pleasure is to welcome returning guests, with many families feeling the cottage is their second home.
