BFB's Overview

Following rave reviews for Tiptoe Cottage, BFB jumped at the chance to feature this new find by the same owner and we are expecting even better feedback for it since the interiors have been taken up a notch and could easily rival a boutique hotel. There's the same high quality and abundant baby gear, brilliant heated playhouse in the large garden and the benefit of two great pubs within a short stroll. Even better, its within less than 10 minutes drive or taxi from the acclaimed restaurants in scenic Brockenhurst and the yachting haven of Lymington , with an experienced babysitter on call, or plenty of space to bring your own in the form of a granny/nanny.

Like Tiptoe, Spindle Cottage is a true New Forest gem, combining a stylish home from home experience with a setting in the heart of the New Forest National Park where spot the wild pony or deer can become a daily activity! The indulgent interiors with claw foot bath, sumptuous beds and cosy log fire make it a perfect romantic retreat, whilst the long list of baby gear, playhouse and outdoor play fort make it just as attractive to mini guests too!

The many touches of luxury include oak flooring with underfloor heating almost throughout, Nespresso, huge fridge freezer with filtered water and ice maker, Wi-Fi, SKY TV, thick cushion mattresses on beds, indulgent claw foot bath, soft sumptuous bathrobes, luxury toiletries and an extra special welcome pack with homemade treats, plus optional extra services including gourmet ready-meal delivery, visiting massage/beauty therapist and babysitting.


Accommodation Overview:
Spindle Cottage sleeps six plus up to two babies in cots in three bedrooms all with stunning forest views. There's a master with superking bed, a double with kingsize or twin beds (convertible), and a spacious single bedroom that can adapt to a double or a second pull out single for two children and a cot. The family bathroom has a freestanding rainhead shower and a claw foot bath with shower over, whilst a downstairs WC is handy too.

Downstairs, guests will find a large dining hall, a separate lounge, with a period working fireplace (logs provided) and a superb cottage kitchen mixing traditional with the 21st Century complete with breakfast bar, Nespresso machine, large Rangemaster fridge freezer with filtered water and ice maker, traditional walk in pantry and Rayburn oven and hob. All essentials such as microwave and dishwasher and laundry facilities are available. A personalised pack of locally sourced welcome goodies awaits guests on the countertop. Other luxuries such as thick towelling dressing gowns from The White Company, soft Egyptian towels, crisp quality linen, and New Forest bathroom products fill the bedrooms and bathrooms. Selections of books, DVDs and games for all ages add to the homely feel. For long stays, there is a washing machine, drier, ironing board and iron.

Outside, the lovely cottage garden is very private and secure with organic herb patch and two seating areas, one for lounging with outdoor sofa and another outdoor dining, complete with BBQ, sink and food prep area. Mini guests will adore outside play fort with slide and a sand pit before discovering their own large den in the form of a brilliant large summer house complete with heating, toys, games, a large TV with Sky, Bluetooth connections and WiFi!

Location Information

Spindle Cottage in the heart of the New Forest National Park, opens directly onto the open forest south of Sway. The New Forest ponies and cattle will frequently be seen roaming outside the cottage. A short walk will take to the Hare and Hounds with a children’s play area or you can walk to Sway for lunch at the Silver Hind. Cycles with tag-a-longs and baby seats can be hired from Brockenhurst for the many cycle trails close by. If you fancy a walk on the beach, lovely cream tea, fresh cakes or brunch then several beachfront cafes are only a short drive away in Barton-on-sea or Milford.

Owners, Jane, Robin and Evelyn live nearby and have many recommendations for great places to see and eat nearby. Having taught in an outdoor study centre there are many suggestions on how to get close to nature including: birdwatching, wildlife walks and nature books for all ages. Other child friendly local attractions include: Furzey Gardens for finding fairies, Longdown Farm for getting up close and feeding the animals or letting off steam in the ball pit and BIRO wooden play zone. Peppa Pig World is a popular attraction, with a fantastic range of rides for toddlers and it’s only 30 minutes away.


If you are drawn to the sea you have many choices only 20 minutes away. Mudeford is great for crabbing or lunch at The Beach Hut restaurant; remember to take the buckets, spades and nets! Lymington, a yachting haven, has a great selection of boutique shops and restaurants and a fantastic Saturday market. After a brisk walk along the sea wall head to the Mayflower Inn for a child friendly pub lunch.

Exbury Gardens offers a great day out you can immerse you in the amazing gardens with easy to navigate paths or rest little legs on the land train ride. Moor’s Valley has a plenty to do for toddler who like to explore and climb.


There are many restaurants well worth organising a baby sitter for: The Pig, Pebble Beach or Verveine (personal favourites of the cottage owners) to name three.

  • Spindle cottage is lovely, we all enjoyed our stay very much and would highly recommend it. Jane has very thoughtfully ensured that all the requirements for a family holiday were met. A definite must for a return visit!Review dated 20/10/2016

  • Beautiful cottage, perfectly equipped - a home from home. The welcome pack was a lovely touch too.Review dated 25/09/2016

  • The best BFB place we've stayed at in terms of the quality of the accommodation and provision for our three month old and nearly 3 year old. So good we've already booked to go back.Review dated 24/09/2016

  • We had a wonderful holiday here! Jane has attended to everything you need for a family holiday. Highly recommended! Our son cried when we left...(and we felt like doing so).Review dated 08/09/2016

  • I am almost hesitant to write this review as I know this wonderful cottage will be fully booked before long. This truly is a home from home, but better. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need, plus an amazingly huge fridge. The beds are so comfortable everyone of us slept amazingly. The location couldn't be better as you are right in the new forest but also so close to some beautiful beaches. My children are 4 & 2 but I could imagine teenagers loving this house as well and sneaking off to the 'outside house' Little touches such as fluffy dressing gowns, homemade cake & local ingredients for a full English really made us feel so looked after. Jane is amazing and happy to help with anything. I couldn't rate this cottage higher!Review dated 03/08/2016

  • Our stay at Spindle Cottage was fantastic and exceeded all of our expectations! I travelled to the New Forest with my husband, our daughter (2) and son (16 weeks) and my parents in law. The Cottage catered to our every need - we only needed to take our clothes/toiletries and do an online grocery shop (which Jane collected and put away before we arrived which was fantastic). Everything else was there - cots, high chairs, booster seats, play gym, toys, slides, bikes, books, DVDs, sterilisers, a stroller, baby monitor. It made travelling away so easy! My daughter absolutely adored the Cottage - in particular the Summer House which is a toddlers dream as it is filled with toys. All of her Christmases had come at once! She also loved being able to take us across the road to see all the horses. The location was wonderful and allowed us to take a trip each morning to one of the number of suggestions Jane had sent through. Our favou ...Review dated 14/07/2016

  • We had a fabulous week long stay at Spindle Cottage in June 2016. The cottage is spacious and immaculate. Our 2.5 year old loved the teddies, the slide and the outdoor play room. We found Jane to be incredibly helpful both before, during and after our stay and we hope to visit again soon. For visitors to the area with kids you can't go wrong with Moors Valley, Longdown Farm, Furzey Gardens, Mudeford Quay/spit and of course, Peppa Pig world...!Review dated 12/07/2016

Our favourites were Longdown Farm and Mudeford Quay/Beach (the ferry trip to the Beach and tractor ride when we were over there was a particular highlight!). Jane is a fantastic host and was in regular contact in the lead up to, and during our stay. I would highly recommend this Cottage to any family.
