Property: Self-catering holiday home
Very good holiday. The court yard at the back was a bit messy but I think this was due to the thatching being done to the house next door.
We had a fantastic week here - the cottage was very comfortable. The location was great and peaceful - we enjoyed overlooking fields and being near the shingle beach. Ponies and donkeys wandered up and down the lane.
Wonderful wonderful time! We really appreciated all the Xmas decorations, the great combo of aga and electric stove/hob, the blankets on all the sofas and the peace and quiet. A really special cottage - a home from home. We felt very privileged to be able to stay there. Please tell the owners we loved it!
Amazingly well equipped and generous welcome pack which was very much appreciated. Brilliant in all aspects.
Wonderful House in a rural location, just a stonethrow from the beach. Beautiful interior with much attention to detail, kitchen very well equipped. The owners have created a real gem. Saw often ponies wandering by on their way to the beach. We can highly recommend Shell Seekers and hope to return in the future!
Wonderful cottage and location. Despite recommendations above we would highly recommend this cottage, we had a wonderful holiday.
Despite the list of suggested improvements, we had a good stay. Probably lucky that the hot weather meant we were out a lot. The local beach was lovely and the mod-cons in the house (TVs and kitchen) are great.
Noticed stain on master bed sheet. Apart from that (and the odd cobweb behind the side tables which was nothing compared to my own home!) the cottage was immaculate and very well stocked for total comfort and relaxation, away from all the light pollution and traffic noise. We would highly recommend and rate Shell Seekers to everyone, and Lymington, and the New Forest. First time there but hope to go back very soon. A BIG THANK YOU TO NEW FOREST COTTAGES for the first of many future holidays with you.
