Great time for all the family; three generations. So good to step right into the forest from the front door but close enough to Lymington and Brockenhurst. It's interestingly well situated.

Absolutely wonderful weekend at Odways, have been to the New Forest many times but never been in such an amazing location, literally out the gate into the Forest. This was a celebration weekend with my best friend and families, 6 kids ranging 2-15years, the garden/trampoline was such a winner for the kids. The house was just so lovely, really big rooms and the space was amazing. Would definitely love to think we would go back there. Also the staff at New Forest escapes were so helpful and really easy to deal with. Gave us good recommendations to horse-riding for the kids, and also a local caterer which made the weekend extra special to have delicious meals pre-prepared for us. Can't recommend enough.
