April 2019

Really well equipped and lovely thoughtful gesture with the welcoming Easter egg. Lovely walk straight from the house around Hatchett pond.

March 2019

House was well equipped and clean. Access round the beds was a little difficult is some rooms, especially with the sloping roof upstairs. Our granddaughter (3years) loved playing in the garden. Lepe country park is worth a visit. Beaulieu motor museum also good.

November 2018

Yes. Lovely location very nice cottage. The little lane at the side of the cottage had a lot of industrial traffic and the building site next door was very noisy everyday and they were doing a lot of burning making it difficult to dry washing or enjoy the lovely outdoor space. We had to keep the windows closed.

August 2018

We all enjoyed our week here. A very well equipped cottage; plenty of crockery, cutlery and kitchen equipment. The rooms were all a good size and there was plenty of storage space in the bedrooms. Our grandson, aged 8, appreciated the selection of toys and games. There was plenty of parking space and it was easy driving in and out. There was quite a lot of traffic along the main road and those sleeping in the front bedroom noticed some noise into the night; however, that is beyond the owner's control!

June 2018

We had a great time, a family gathering to attend a treehouse wedding at the motor museum. The weather was fantastic, so we made good use of the outdoor furniture. The spectacular lightning storm on the Saturday night was a real bonus

April 2018

Excellent location for walking and short drive to towns such as Lyndhurst - would recommend cottage

April 2018
