What a beautiful cottage/gardens and the perfect location. We had such a fabulous time. Lot's of lovely memories made with my children. The kids were thoroughly entertained in the games barn. It really is perfect place to relax and have some family time. The cottage is very spacious in terms of sleeping accommodation. The kitchen has everything you need. The sitting room is cosy and perfect for snuggling down in the evening to watch a movie. We will definitely be back soon!

We had a 3 night stay in Wishing well cottage and we couldn't have asked for more. The cottage was beautiful inside and out and well equipped with everything you could ask for, even toys and books for my little boy. The games room was a hit, lots to do, and beautiful garden. A super trip away, just what we all needed. And the owner is lovely. We will definatly be returning:) Kerry and co

Thanks for your wonderful review. It was your first visit & I'm so thrilled that you have already re-booked for a stay next year. The Games Barn is extremely popular - even more so during these difficult times. I'm so glad that it has been possible to keep it open & that all of my guests have been extremely helpful with the safety measures that are needed to keep it Covid secure.

A wonderful week in the New Forest. This beautiful cottage is in a great location to visit the New Forest. The cottage is very clean and well equipped with everything you need. The owner Christine is on hand and very helpful. She runs two lovely holiday cottages and I would highly recommend.

We have just had a 4 night break at Wishing Well cottage. It’s a lovely little 3 bed cottage, extremely cosy and warm. With all the facilities you could need. Christine was very accommodating and helpful, would definitely recommend her home to others!

We really wish that we could have stayed longer at this beautiful old, beamed thatched cottage. Our every need had already been thoughtfully anticipated and catered for and the property was spotlessly clean, warm and inviting. The accommodation was really flexible and enabled us to select our own 'space'. Our son enjoyed the darts and pool in the Sports Barn which is an amazing resource for young people and families (and not just on wet days) and there are wonderful gardens. The property is ideally placed for the coast, New Forest countryside and city (Salisbury). Thank you Christine.

I'm so pleased that you enjoyed your stay in Wishing Well. It probably didn't match up to your intended holiday in Portugal but I'm glad that you still managed a holiday in these difficult times. I'm glad that I've been able to keep the Games Barn open. Everyone has been extremely helpful in following the Covid guidelines & keeping everything clean. I hope you can come again another time.
