Despite the wet weather, we had a warm and friendly welcome from the hosts and 'The Grooms' was comfortable, cosy and well equipped. It is peaceful and set in a lovely location, overlooked by their horses and a herd of deer nearby. A perfect place for our winter break. See you again. Frances and Alan

This was our second visit and we should love to stay again. The cottage was a delight, the totally dog proof garden was a joy and all the surrounding New Forest just invited exploration. The owners, Ross and Andrew are such nice people, we felt very welcome as was the lovely lemon drizzle cake and wine. Hope you both enjoyed your sailing and Badminton last weekend!!

Had an amazing week at The Grooms. The accommodation was perfect in every way. We really felt at home in the cozy accommodation and beautiful surroundings, especially being horsey people ourselves. Ross and Andrew are fantastic hosts who really made us feel welcome. Tod the dog loved it too with the beautiful walks just on the doorstep. Loved it so much we have re booked for next year.

Very impressed with our property

May 2015

Very welcoming hosts in Ross and Andrew. Accommodation faultless, comfortable and warm. Good quality furniture and fitments, we wanted for nothing. Both gardens 99.9% enclosed for our dog Snoops, he worked at the other .1%, given another week he might have found a way! Wonderful area, so much to do or just sit in the lovely gardens and watch Paddy and Coco, Ross's two horses.
