There is an all weather concrete table tennis table in the nearby park which our young people enjoyed or rather would have enjoyed had we known to take our own bats etc. It might be worth a mention for future guests. We had an excellent meal in the Chequers Inn just a short walk down the road.
Would stay here again
We enjoyed our fourth stay at Champaz. The new fitments in the bathrooms (in particular the shower door) were a great improvement. 5 stars out of 5 as always - thank you.
We had a very enjoyable month at Champaz and plan to return. Thank you.
We enjoyed our stay very much and the property was lovely for two young children as the garden was enclosed and perfect for little ones. The cleanliness could do with a bit more attention in places especially the kitchen, but this didn’t spoil our stay.
Excellent location. Easy walking to coast one way and shops the other.
We were left a bottle of champagne which was a lovely touch and tea bags etc. The weather was not the best but as we visit the New Forest on a regular basis we found plenty to do. Never seen the rivers so full and the forest so flooded as this year!
Yes, we enjoyed out stay and would consider another stay sometime in the future
Perfect location ideal for Isle of Wight and theme parks for grandchild. Garden was beautiful and kitchen well stocked with utensils
Lovely situation, spacious cottage but in great need of upgrade
We did enjoy our stay very much , garden and lounge area were fab. We ate outside as weather was so nice it would have been hard to seat us all around the dinning table, the kitchen was very comfortable. We had a leek in the bunkbed room radiator which we reported to the owner. I feed the leek had been causing damage to the floor and bedding for some time before our vacation sit. Overall the house was clean but a few areas had been missed. Dust on mirrors and some surfaces , windows on patio were dirty at top and old pillow case on one bed and used apron in kitchen . I only mention these things as I know as an owner you would want to bring them up with the cleaner . Overall we had a great stay and would stay again, it's just that we are used to a very high standard when we stay elcewhere eg Cornwall and Yorkshire. Maybe the owners are older and don't realise what is the norm now . Your office staff were very helpful and cheerful and that gets a gold star from me every time .
We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your recent stay at Champaz. We are sorry to hear that you experienced some cleanliness and maintenance issues. We have forwarded your comments onto the owner who wants to thank you for taking the time to feedback on these issues as occasionally things can go unnoticed. The owners have contacted the cleaner to ensure that the issues raised are addressed for future guests. We hope to welcome you back to The New Forest again in the future.

We didn't have great weather unfortunately so didn't get to use the garden and BBQ as much as we would've liked, but we still had a fantastic stay. Absolutely zero complaints about the house (I really had to think about those improvements above!). We were two adults, a 2 year old and a baby. My in-laws didn't come as originally planned but even if they had, we still would've had ample space for us all. The house is very well equipped, kitchen has absolutely everything you need, lounge has big couches, dining table, and loads of games for the kids (and adults!). Garden is big, totally enclosed, and BBQ is huge! (I'm South African so this was crucial!) Beds were all very comfortable. Some were old fashioned but still did the job. Bunk bed room is cramped but great for 3 kids. Showers worked well, especially in the main bathroom. There are no towels provided (except tea towels and bath mats) which isn't ideal as we barely had space in the car! But not a deal breaker. Location is good. Walking distance to two fantastic pubs (Chequers and Fishermans). About a 20 minute walk into town, and about 10 minutes to the marina (and another good pub The Mayflower which has a fantastic garden for kids). Might've been nice to be a bit closer to town (walking there and back with kids was a push!) but we'd still stay again. We would definitely recommend this house to others and would stay again if we ever return to Lymington which I'm sure we will! Also worth mentioning we used sitters.co.uk twice during our stay so we could go out without the kids and they were brilliant. Would highly recommend Marion and Annette.
We had another wonderful week in Champaz. Our third visit and we still found new things to do. The location of this property is superb.
We were very impressed with how well equipped the bungalow was, generally we bring cling film, dishwasher tabs etc with us but there was plenty of everything. The accommodation was clean, fresh and very spacious.
Our visit this year was partly to celebrate my Mums 90th birthday. She had enjoyed Champaz and the surrounding area so much she wanted to go again this year. Thank you so much to the NFC staff and cottage owners for all you did to make it such a special occasion and trip. We had a wonderful time and Mum has already stated she wants to go again next year!
I really recommend this holiday cottage. We have had a wonderful holiday here. So much to do in this part of the country and its really good to come back after a day's activity to relax in the beautiful and peaceful garden. Would love to come back again.
Wonderful garden for our 3 small grandchildren and excellent facilities in the bungalow. We would definitely consider a return visit in a couple of years. A great holiday!
Champaz is a delightful property. Very well equipped and set in a superb and quiet location!
We ran our holiday home for 11 years, we have high standards, and Champaz has met all our requirements.
Superb accommodation with plenty of space for a large family of 7!
A wonderful week at Champaz. Comfortable and spacious inside and out, the bungalow is fully equipped and all in good working order.
We have enjoyed our week's stay in this comfortable and well equipped house.
