5/5 Excellent

Fantastic stay in a wonderful property
The house was a lovely cottage, overlooking a paddock with horses in it. We made the most of the wood burner abs found the house has everything you needed, and more, if you want to cook your own meals. Liz, the owner was really friendly and we took her dogs out for walks on most days. She also let our son help muck out the horse and feed them, which he loved. Very close to St Catherine’s Hill and we went for walks there on most days. This is a fantastic property, with great views and a really friendly owner. Definitely a 5* property!!

5/5 Excellent

Fantastic home from home cottage
The cottage was so beautifully presented with everything you need and such attention to detail. The location was perfect, walking straight out onto heathland, great for dog walking. The property management company and the owners were so helpful and communication excellent. Would absolutely recommend this cottage for a relaxing break away and very dog friendly, great enclosed garden for the doggies.

5/5 Excellent

Wonderful Staycation
We are a family of 4 and our original travel plans were cancelled due to Covid-19. We were lucky enough to find this beautiful property and spent a lovely week there. Nigel and Liz were both incredibly friendly and helpful - I can't think of anything more they could have provided! We brought our dog with us, and enjoyed spending our evenings on the patio in the enclosed garden. We hope to return soon!

Fern Cottage
Excellent, We had a relaxing stay at the cottage. Everything you could need with lots of homely touches. The location next to the nature reserve was superb with many interesting walks zig zagging through the woods and the reserve. My granddaughter particularly enjoyed having a horse in paddock next to garden. Close to Christchurch town centre and quay (25 mins walk).
