Lovely stay
Lovely warm house, very comfortable and perfect for a family with young children. We’ll equipped kitchen and lots of toys. Would highly recommend!
Stayed 3 nights in Mar 2022

3/5 Okay

weekend family stay
Characterful house with layout that worked well for two adult couples (grandparents and parents) and two young children and our dog. Most of the floor area is in a rear extension to the small original old thatched cottage. Beds and bedding (particularly in front bedroom in old part) more travelodge and basic than the quality expected of a property costing this much. Cleaning was hit and miss - mostly ok, but found dirty nappies left in bathroom bin and the cooker grill was full of fat and smoked badly when first used. Overall ok, but not up to the standard needed for the high price charged for this weekend.

Lovely half term stay!
Really enjoyed our stay in this lovely house. Check in was smooth via a neighbour of the property. House was well equipped for a short stay and perfectly situated to explore all the local villages of the new forest. Kitchen had everything you need for self catering, bedrooms and bathroom all very clean and comfortable. The house has a cosy front room with comfortable sofas and another comfortable living area next to the kitchen / dining area if you’re being more social with a larger group/family. House also has a good sized garden (fully enclosed) which we didn’t use due to time of year but would be great in the summer. Can’t wait to come back!
