“Perfect location 5 mins from town and county”
Reviewed 24 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Edge of town property that provides quality fixtures and furnishings that made our holiday stay easy and very enjoyable. Level walking into town and easy access to woodland walks along disused railway tracks, perfect for exercising the dog, both only 5 mins in either direction.
Fordingbridge is a good base to explore, coast, forest, riversides and heathland. The town has a little of everything and plenty of independent shops for browsing.
Weather on this holiday 'Mixed' but cottage provided a haven for late starts or early returns. Sheltered garden was lovely for alfresco breakfasts.
Enjoyed archery and axe throwing in the woods at nearby insight activities, Breamore House and countryside museum (undercover) and if there are engineers/builders in family try Bursledon Brick Museum, near Southampton. fascinating. 2 adults, 1 teen and a dog had a great week.
Owner made booking and arrival easy. Would definitely stay again.

“Excellent stay: comfortable cottage, well-equipped, lovely kiddies room and loved the 'private' tourist info”
Reviewed 13 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Great basis to explore Fordingbridge and New Forest. Convenient for public transport to Ringwood and Salisbury. There is lots to do. And what we enjoyed is that we could enjoy our own private 'tourist info' in the house, with lots of brochures, guides books and (walking) guides and maps. Contact with Sue, the owner (who we did not meet) was very pleasant and efficient.

Reviewed 21 July 2017 for a stay in April 2017

A lovely house with everything you need for it to be a home from home. We especially enjoyed the bottle of wine in the fridge and chocolates on arrival and our children loved the toys and books in the attic bedroom. The house is situated in an ideal position for visiting the New Forest and surrounding area.

Thank you Sue for your brilliant communications it was a pleasure to book your cottage will definitely be back

“Lovely cottage, great location”
Reviewed 26 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

We had a great 4 night break at Amble Back. The cottage was spotlessly clean and there are lots of thoughtful touches to make it a very comfortable and cosy stay, especially with the new boiler and the open fire.
We found the location ideal for visits to Stonehenge and Salisbury, the coast and the New Forest during our 3 full days there. Fordingbridge is a great little town with everything you need on the doorstep. The local people are very friendly too. We would have no hesitation in recommending this property and will happily return if we are in the area again.
