“Fantastic family friendly cottage.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

We very much enjoyed our stay. The cottage and grounds were beautiful. The cottage was really comfortable and well equipped. The games barn was enjoyed by us all (teenagers through to a grandad). Christine was really helpful and friendly. Will definitely be returning.

I appreciate your kind comments & am glad that you all had a good family 'get together' here. The games barn is a great 'facility'. You had good weather so it wasn't crucial for you. When the weather isn't so good then it really 'comes into its own'!
I hope you are able to come again sometime.

We've just returned from an extremely enjoyable 4 night stay at Little Hatch with our 2 dogs and can't wait to return for another short break later in the year. This was our first visit on a friend's recommendation. The cottage is delightful, very comfortable, clean, well maintained and free wifi (where would we be without!) Christine's attention to detail was greatly appreciated, especially the welcome pack, tea & biscuits on arrival on a chilly wet afternoon went down well! We didn't use the games room or laundry but having both is ideal in bad weather or on a longer holiday. The dogs enjoyed their stay too and the totally safe back yard meant we all relaxed and could enjoy, especially as the weather improved as the week went on! Christine had no input on that score but everything else we enjoyed at the cottage was down to her. We've stayed in the New Forest before and love the area but this is a true "home from home" and we can't wait to come back!
Many, many thanks, Pam & John from Kent

Spent Christmas in The Wishing Well Cottage, Burgate Farnhouse, with my partner and our 3 children (17, 12 and 9) and had a magical time. Christine, the owner, very kindly put a Christmas tree up for us and various decorations. I was able to have all of my food shopping delivered on the morning of our arrival, which was all put away for us. The cottage is just lovely, with long corridors, exposed beams and loads of character, and more than enough space for everyone. Weather was very wet and windy, but I can honestly say that it didn't spoil a single moment. The Games Barn is a touch of genius and kept my two youngest occupied for hours.
I can't recommend this lovely place enough, and we can't want to go back some time this year. Thank you Christine for everything and Happy New Year.

We spent a week at the Little Thatch cottage and we loved it.
Everything was just right. The cottage is well equipped and warm. It was very quiet, cosy and relaxing.
We had wet and windy weather, but it didn't stop us going out and visiting the town about 15 mins walk. We visited various towns/villages nearby. Christchurch was lovely. We had dinner at the Surma Valley Indian Restaurant next door - Christmas Eve. (very nice) We had Christmas Lunch at 'The George' in Fordingbridge right next to the river. Christine sent me a copy of the menu before christmas recommending it - great choice.
The food was excellent, no cooking for a change ....
I would not hesitate to recommend this cottage and we would love to go back sometime next year.
Thank you Christine.

Our first visit to Little Thatch, Burgate Farmhouse and already I can't wait to return. THe cottage is amazing - so old and cosy. The games room was brilliant fun, en excellent touch. Christine was really friendly and welcoming. Very obliging too - I really apprciated being able to organise a grocery delivery in advance, and everything was put away for us when we got there. Can't wait to return in the New Year.

It was our second visit - and it was wonderful! The three of us relaxed so much, and even the dogs had a ball. Within a few minutes of arriving we felt as though the holiday had truly begun. A wonderful relaxing atmosphere at the cottage, with everything we could ask for readily available. Hubby went cycling (mountain bike) at Moors Lake which isn't too far away, and thoroughly enjoyed it. We all went walking nearby, and had huge fun in the games room! Can't recommend it highly enough. Just fantastic, and we hope to be back in the not too distant future.

Room Tip: If you're travelling with animals, ask for the cottage with the enclosed back garden.

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.
