Just returned from a beautiful weeks holiday at Wishing Well and Little Thatch. Both cottages are spacious and well equipped and cater for all your needs. Baby pack was extremely useful saving me from trying to squeeze all needed baby essentials in to my car. The children loved the games barn and the garden and also the odd trip over to grandparents cottage for morning breakfast. Ideal cottages for families and grandparents. Nice quality time together also the set up allows time for yourself when wanted. Lovely area, lots to see and do. Christine the owner is very nice, friendly and helpful. Hope to go again next year

Thank you for taking the trouble to put a review on. I'm so glad that you all enjoyed the 2 cottages for your week's stay. The weather was superb which helped I'm sure. I was pleased to be able to provide all the 'baby kit' for you which saved you having to bring everything with you. I hope to see you all again next year.

Beautiful little cottage ( Little Thatch ) with all the comforts of home including nice large TV and wireless internet. The location was excellent for visiting the New Forest and surrounding areas - we even travelled to Durdle Door in Dorset which is only an hour away. Christine the host seemed very nice and didn't intrude on our privacy. Would highly recommend to any one wanting character and comfort in a central location.

We stayed for four nights at Little Thatch. The cottage was very dog-friendly - the main reason for booking initially - the rear garden was completely secure and a great space for our terrier to mooch about and chase his ball! The cottage itself was very comfortable and well equipped. The setting was beautiful - would love to see the garden in midsummer! Also being right on the Avon Valley Way it was ideal for the dog too! The cottage was really well located for accessing the New Forest and the coast. We will definitely be booking again!

Thanks for your really nice review. Little Thatch is proving to be so popular for anyone for a dog because of the secure back garden area.

The family stayed for 4 nights at Wishing Well Cottage and we had a very pleasant stay.
The welcoming was excellent. The cottage is surprisingly spacious, it is nicely furnished, and very well equipped. Everything one could ever need is there.
The Games Barn was much appreciated by the children. They would probably have preferred to stay at the cottage playing all day.
The cottage is located perfectly in the New Forests and near Salisbury and Stonehenge. The only negative point is the noise from the road.

For us this was a perfect combination and we can really recommend the cottage.

Thanks for putting a review onto Trip Advisor. It is always nice to welcome overseas visitors & you were very lucky to get some sunshine!
I'm glad that your children enjoyed the games barn & that you managed to 'prise them away' so that you could spend some time touring the area.

We have just returned from a great weekend away at Burgate Farmhouse. We have stayed once before in the middle of a snowy winter - so it was lovely to see the garden in spring weather as it's such a beautiful setting.

We were there to celebrate my mum and aunties 60th and couldn't have picked a better venue. Christine kindly agreed for us to use her garden and games barn for the event, and was very helpful throughout the whole process; letting us put a marquee up and lending us crockery, china, chairs, tables and experienced advice for the event.

I'm sure we'll definitely be returning at some point in the future for another family gathering - and would highly recommend the cottages. It's a home away from home and the games barn is a fantastic addition for any family event.

You didn't get perfect weather for your big family party but it didn't seem to matter as everything that you had organised worked out well. I loved listening to the jazz band & the pizza van was a great idea for your catering. I hope to see you again for another family gathering in the future. Thanks for the review.

Stayed for 4 nights with our young dog. The cottage was very dog friendly and had some lovely local walks. It was nice not to use the car one day and sat in the beautiful garden listening to the birds. The cottage was comfortable and was very well equiped. Fordingbridge is a great little village with plenty of shops and a river walk. It was not far to any of the New Forest attractions. If we come to the area again we will definatly try and book Little Thatch.

Stayed for 4 nights on a lovely midweek stay. 2adults and 2 babies(under 14months). We were very happy with the cottage. The facilities were fantastic, everything we could have needed was provided and this made our stay very comfortable.
Location is excellent, right on the fridge of new forest and with in very short driving distance of fantastic walks, parks, a leisure centre, pubs, shops....everything you need. I do say drive however because it is located on a fairly busy main road.
The cottage itself is very pretty and surprisingly roomy on the inside, with 3 large bedrooms. If I could make any criticism it would be that the shower had very low water pressure, a minor grumble.
All in all a great place to stay and Christine was very helpful and did everything she could to make our experience a great one. Many thanks
