Had a lovely stay.
All the appliances required detailed reading of instructions - tiresome. We could have done with fans upstairs in the hot weather - window designs were such that (with no fanlights) rain could come in if you opened them. It was excellent to have two stair gates but we couldn't put these up till halfway through our stay as there was no spanner available to tighten them till we requested one from the excellent cleaner. Luckily our toddler guests were not arriving until the next day. Also, I had specifically asked whether we could have two highchairs rather than the one mentioned. I was told there was just one, so we went to the expense of buying a booster seat to take with us, only to find on arrival that there were in fact two good highchairs at Homelands. I had asked whether there was room for two travel cots and you said there wasn't (very difficult as our two grandsons are aged two and one). We therefore loaded our own travel cot into our car, and lo and behold both our cot and the one provided at the property fitted perfectly in the main bedroom. It's hard enough going on holiday with two toddlers, but when the agency through which you book the cottage doesn't have the correct information it's difficult and frustrating. As it turned out, this was an excellent property for the two toddlers, but you did yourselves no favours by not providing accurate information. Overall it was a lovely property and in such a good location (near the station and within walking distance of shops and pubs etc) that we didn't use the car at all in our second week.
We really enjoyed our stay at Homelands. The house was very comfortable and well equiped. Ideally located to visit all the well known locations.
Loved everything about the place, the living room was very comfortable as were the beds.
Yes, very much. The only downside was the difficult at times access through the village but there is obviously nothing that could be done about that. We would definitely go back there.
Apart from that minor point the house is lovely, comfortable and ideally situated for exploring the surrounding towns. There was a lovely welcome pack to greet us and that was much appreciated.
Fantastic place, great location and could not ask for anything else. The equipment, games, books etc provided were great. Also really appreciated the welcome basket. Thanks a lot, would come again
A beautiful house with some very nice touches. The pictures do not do it the justice it deserves.
Excellent property, very well equipped the extra touches, games, kitchen bits and bobs, welcome pack all made it lovely
We had a great holiday- the weather was kind to us and the property was fantastic.
The house is in a fantastic location, our grandson loved the morning walk to fetch the paper and seeing all the ponies. The property is beautifully decorated and the owners have really thought about everything you could need. Great holiday.
The furnishings, equipment and cleanliness were exceptional. For convenience, the location was great, however, we found the train noise intrusive.
The house was very clean, tidy and well presented. All sorts of little touches made the property a very comfortable place to stay. The house is very near to the main railway line which had its pluses and minuses. On the plus side it was a very good train service to Bournemouth, Poole, Lynmouth, London etc and the station only a few minutes walk away. On the minus side the trains were quiet noisy when you were in the property but you do eventually get used to it. The only other minus was the noise from the cattle grid for the village hall next door - it made a clonking noise when cars went over it and the hall is used very regularly throughout the day. All that said the property was lovely and we enjoyed our stay.
Everything was amazing. We had no hitches, everything worked like clockwork. The property was superb, extremely well situated. We had a marvellous time at the property. Plus the weather was great
House was very clean and handy for the village. Well equipped, although the oven was so high tech we never got the hang of it! Husband was impressed with the tv. Downside was the location, next to the railway line with trains running quite late at night, and the village hall on the other side which was busy with cars as there is a day nursery located there.
Lovely property in ideal location for cycling and walking without needing to use the car
A lovely spacious house in a beautiful area in the New Forest. We'd love to take it lock, stock and barrel to the Midlands, back with us!
Lovely property, ideal for trips out in the New Forest. Very welcoming. Thanks for all of your help.
A lovely holiday in a very homely house. Bike rides, Peppa Pig (Paultons), Christchurch Quomps, Hengistbury Head, ride along the sea wall. Plenty to do, made the most of the sun!
Very sharp, well decorated home. Lots of extras - many thanks. Would definitely recommend A*.
Thank you for a lovely stay - your attention to detail in the house makes all the difference. You thought of everything - even equipment for childproofing. We will be back!
Fantastic holiday.this house easily surpassed our expectations.the owners went beyond what was required.welcome pack great as arrived late.As there was so much crockery,cutlery utensils we could put dishwasher on once a day and still have set of everything in cupboard.garden lovely.downstairs loo very handy.plenty of room upstairs.the house is less than 10 min walk to village centre.would advise torch for walk back at night as horses leave little packages on pavements which is hard to see in dark.perfectly situated for visiting other villages or coast.would like to thank owners and say would recommend to any of our friends who want to visit new forest.This was our granddaughters first holiday and she saw her first horse at the gate first morning.
I would like to says homelands was beyond our expectation.we was impressed that the owner went above what was required.ie number of crockery,utensils,cutlery.also the small things like d.washer tablets,w,up liquid and welcome pack.we will certainly recommend this property to others going to new forest.
Welcome pack on arrival was super . The children's play park just behind Homelands was brilliant. The owners of this property had thought about everything we visitors might need.
Fantastic little place. Great stay, we'll be back
Great house. Welcome pack is brilliant. A lovely holiday, we will be back. Thank you.
