Completely renovated luxury cottage, lovely garden, sleep 8-14 with adj cottages
We moved to Burley 25 years ago and fell in love with the unique beauty of the area and New Forest life style, which coupled with the close proximity to some of the best beaches and coastline the South coast has to offer makes it the perfect location for relaxation and recreational pursuits. It was the most wonderful area in which to bring up our daughter and we feel very spolit to have lived in such a superb location yet less than 2 hours from London.

Why Owner chose Burley
Keepers Cottage was originally built at the turn of the last century for the housekeeper of Shappen House. When an opportunity arose to purchase the cottage we were wowed by its superb location, central to the village yet tucked away from the everyday hustle and bustle, so peaceful but not remote. We were lucky enough to secure the neighbouring Gardeners cottage too and so set about restoring the cottage to a wonderful Forest home for family and guests to experience the lifestyle we have so enjoyed.

A peaceful and pretty haven!
We loved our stay at Keepers Cottage. The house is cosy and spotless, the garden, pristine! It felt like a home from home and Nicole was at the ready to answer any questions. Will hope to return one day and would recommend to anyone looking for a peaceful stay in the New Forest. The location is perfect, within the popular village of burley but away from the immediate hustle and bustle.
Beautiful cottages in the heart of burley
Our families stayed in Nicole’s two adjoining cottages and barn for my wedding. It was the perfect place to prep with the bridal party and accommodated everyone comfortably!
Because of the facilities available we were able to have dinner with a lot of guests which allowed for us to all spend a great few days as a group.
Nicole was very accommodating and has furnished each of her properties beautifully. Would definitely return to stay in the forest in the future. Only a short drive from other forest villages. 5-stars!
Lovely property. Really enjoyed the peaceful location within easy reach of village and forest in all directions. Furnished to very high standard with lots of nice touches and very comfortable bed. Would love to come back again sometime!
Perfect accommodation in perfect location. Wonderful touches throughout cottage. Home from home.
Wonderful location that enabled us to walk from cottage to the village, but also within car distance of the coast. Beautiful garden, space to play games, but also relax.
Fantastic property, beautiful location
The location of the property was amazing, just a 5 minute walk to the centre of Burley. The property was beautiful and finished to extremely high standards. Perfect for a family stay with a lovely garden, peaceful surroundings and so much to do in the area.
Fantastic cottage, very comfortable, cosy,tastefully decorated and well equipped in perfect location
Keepers Cottage is a very pretty cottage set in a lovely garden which was full of spring flowers. Unfortunately the weather prevented us making the most of it! Indoors we were very comfortable. The central hallway gives the cottage a spacious feel and the conservatory was the ideal play space for the children. The dining kitchen was ideal for us and it had everything we could possibly need. The fittings and furnishings are of a very high standard throughout. The owners were very helpful and responded very quickly to our emails and additional requests. The location is perfect for exploring the New Forest and further afield (eg. 45 mins to Portsmouth). If there had been a second bath or shower room, rather than just a second toilet, we would have given it five stars. But overall it was one of the best holiday cottages we have ever stayed in (and we've stayed in lots!) and we would highly recommend it.
Thank you very much for your lovely review of the cottage, it was fabulous to hear that this is one of the best cottages you have ever stayed in.
I am of course very disappointed that you felt it right to reduce the star rating even though you indicate the cottage was everything we advertised and more, as we are quite clear in our details that the cottage has one bathroom and an additional ground floor toilet, unfortunately this is something we are unable to change with the property.
