Loved the location being in the gardens. Had everything we needed and all clean.
Great cottage and big enough for the 6 adults and 4 children in our party. A bit quirky in a good way with some rooms a bit big and one or two a little small. The big bonus is having the fabulous Furzey Gardens and its great play area and towers to yourself before visitors arrive and after they leave!
Our Golden Wedding with family, other family and friends visited during week, all enjoyed
Comfortable property in delightful location. Set in very pleasant garden with direct access to New Forest paths.
There was an ongoing problem with wasps which may be beyond your control , similarly the fire doors are extremely heavy, with tight springs, this is dangerous with little fingers around, but again may not be a fixable issue! Maybe a few less religious artefacts as well? These are observations though rather than criticisms. We loved the gardens, especially being able to have them to ourselves after hours! The peace and tranquility was just what was needed for us whilst the open areas and the mystery of the fairies was perfect for our young ones. We hope to return, but out of wasp season next time!
Fantastic house for large family party with excellent facilities for all ages, ours ranging between 22 months and 88 years! Fantastic location in furzey gardens. So beautiful and peaceful! We will defiantly come to this property again.
We had fantastic weather so hardly sat indoors but if wet and need to be inside the long room could be better for a tv rather than the small lounge area currently used as not enough seating for 10 to watch quite a small tv. We loved the house and hope to return sometime in the future
A lovely house in a wonderful garden; we would certainly consider staying here again. Excellent for me - I have limited mobility. Excellent for the children, aged from 18 months to 10 years. The garden is a safe and exciting place to explore; the children loved looking for the fairy doors and exploring the Typhoon Tower etc. Plenty of play space within the house, too. Lovely cream teas on the doordtep! And pleasing to be supporting the Minstead Trust. One small problem: we experienced difficulty with our Ocado delivery for the Friday evening, as we gave directions to Furzey House, whereas it is signposted 'The Retreat'.
Excellent holiday home especially if there are young children in the party. Very spacious.
