You have a very special place here - we especially loved the thoughtful décor, the comfortable beds and the fantastic collection of children's books (not to mention the location and the beach!).

Pitts Deep Cottage is one of the most gorgeous places and locations I have EVER stayed in. So stylishly and artistically furnished than it felt like a well-loved home, not simply a holiday let. The views of the sea from the windows and deck are spectacular. The special touches of logs for the fire-pit, sourdough bread and cake on arrival were so welcome. The owners went out of their way to provide an old dvd player so we could watch a movie. Honestly the place is so lovely, we didn't want to leave. The properties at New Forest Escapes all seem to have a special quality about them.

We're a family of five and stayed here w/c 15 July 2019, a lovely sunny week. What an amazing location, right on the beach. Very peaceful. The deck looking out over the Solent is a pretty special place for an evening drink. We took a sailing dinghy (Phantom) and you can sail right from the cottage. We did some exploring on the Isle of Wight (don't miss lunch at The Hut) and kayaking around the bay at Keyhaven. All in all, highly recommended. Our first trip with NFE and we will be back!
What a wonderful place - from home to home! What a scorcher we had; this is Barbados-by-Sea. Every respect of it is a joy. The sea, moving skies and scenes - 283 photos later and I still haven't captured the beauties of that seashore view! Paintings to follow. If you owned this, I question how you would ever leave to go anywhere! Brilliant! Thank you so much!
Bewitched by the magical setting at this cottage. It was the most perfect place with the deck and the beach for all the little kids. Great fun, crabbing, BBQ's, treasure hunts at low tide, walks, swimming - ponies, cattle and donkeys. Storms and high winds - we had it all. Thank you for making this special place available for delighted 4 year olds and their equally happy parents! We made lifetime memories - the sail on The Beaulieu will live long in the memory. Thanks again!

Thank you for sharing this magical spot. We have swam in the sea in brilliant sunshine, and cosied up indoors in 50 mph winds and driving rain. We feel very lucky to have stayed here, and take away happy memories. Thank you.

It was my 40th birthday present to come here and nothing could have been more perfect. The space on the beach, the open air, the wildlife watching the passing ebb and flow of motion and stillness outside the house. The house is beautiful and offered pretty much everything we could ask for. Beautiful thoughtful décor, comfy to rest, a lovely bright and well appointed kitchen.
A really happy and fun few days at the lovely Pitts Deep. A really special decking spot - we spent most of our time eating in the sun there! Thank you Susanne, Jennifer & Team.

Had a wonderful relaxing weekend. The cottage is a real gem on the South Coast. It's fantastic that so many families are able to share its treasures. We really appreciated the attention to detail that made our stay so easy. You have thought of everything. We will be back. Thank you.

Thank you for the most smashing weeks stay. It couldn't have been more magical - the perfect British seaside hol on our trip back this year. Your home is idyllic and everything so artfully and thoughtfully chosen. We hope to return soon! All our love.

A peaceful escape in the glorious sunshine. Absolutely idyllic!! We didn't stray far from the deck. Kids enjoyed the beach - even the mud - in fact that was probably the highlight and crabbing off the dock. The house location felt very special and we felt very lucky to be there.

We've had a lovely stay - especially for Isla's 8th birthday! All very special - even a full moon. Everything has been thought of. Thank you.

Absolutely loved Pitts Deep Cottage. We had an amazing holiday and will definitely be back. The cottage is wonderfully tucked away and in a beautiful setting. It was kitted out with everything you would need. Lovely to make use of the BBQ and toast marshmallows over a fire on the beach.
We had a superb weekend celebrating some big birthdays at Pitts Deep Cottage, the most wonderful place! The cottage is gorgeous and so comfortable and the location is unbeatable. Can't rate it highly enough and can't wait to return.

Pitts Deep - What a find. We didn't leave for the whole of our stay. At one point we ran out of milk but no one wanted to go to civilisation so we braved it and built a sandcastle village instead. Two of the bedrooms upstairs a bit small for our noisy kids - but that's the only non perfect thing. Even tho' it was late October the wind wasn't as bad as we thought it was and for two days we only wore jumpers outside. Truly magnificent and thanks to everyone who runs the mighty ship Pitts Deep!

The house is beautifully styled and has a really welcoming and relaxing feel. That combined with it's stunning location means you can't help but enjoy your stay. We had gorgeous weather and spent the whole time sitting on the deck or walking along the beach. Just perfect! Would highly recommend it!
