Spent a lovely few days at Wishing Well with our two boys. Owner Christine was very welcoming and lent us lots of toddler toys and other useful baby equipment, like a listening monitor. This was really helpful as two of the bedrooms are a way from the sitting room. Games room fantastic with pool table, table tennis and skittles; also a good garden with football nets on one side. Very comfortable accommodation and well placed to explore the New Forest, Salisbury or the coast. You do get some noise from the road but not enough to bother us. Another thing to note (though I think this is clear on the property website) is that you have to walk through the twin bedroom to get to the main bedroom. Again, this wasn't a problem for us at all but it's something to note depending on who is going with you. Overall, lovely clean house full of character and good facilities. We hoping to return next year.

This was our second stay and we have already booked for next year. Excellent accommodation, good pubs nearby, really good Indian restaurant (very obliging and cooked for my delicate palate), lovely walks in the autumn sunshine - what more can you ask for? We are so pleased we found this little gem.

Have returned for another fabulous visit to the Wishing Well Cottage for a weekend trip. This was our second trip to the cottage. The cottage has fantastic facilities and has easy access to many walks, pubs and other activities. Upon arrival, you are made to feel at home straight away, Christine makes sure that you have everything for your immediate needs. Had another fantastic stay. Many thanks Christine.

Just returned from yet another holiday in 'our' cottage. Perfect ambience, facilities, privacy and cosiness. Secluded, safe, large garden helped us relax totally in relation to our dogs (2 Yorkshire Terriers), who always quickly feel it is their own territory running around, whilst we catch up with our reading on wet days. Our lovely host Christine always ensures that Little Thatch is scrupulously fresh, both inside and out, so consequently we feel that we are the first visitors! The area is very 'dog-friendly' and therefore we are able to take them anywhere with us, including pubs and shops both locally and in surrounding villages. Having family in the area, we were able to entertain in our 'home from home' with a superb take-away from the local Indian Restaurant. Obviously, we have been back over the last few years and shall continue to return in the future.

Little thatch has loads of character and is amazing value! It has a great location with easy access to bike rides, walks and many quality pubs! The Indian near by is also very good with friendly service. We had great weather however the games room is so well equipped you spend all day in there if it was wet. Many thanks Christine

Thanks for your nice review. I'm glad that you enjoyed your weekend here. You were very lucky with the weather but, as you said, at least you had the games barn to fall back on if you needed it. I hope you enjoyed your bike rides.

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.
