Well located, we just jumped on our bikes and off we went into the forest. A spacious 2 bed cottage next to a good pub, Ashurst train station 1 minute walk away and takes just 10 mins into Southampton. Trains maybe close, but very quiet. Very clean and modern, all we needed for a weekend getaway. Internet access great. Owner is really helpful.

Will be sad to say goodbye to Rufus Cottage our home for the last 3 nights. The cottage is beautifully situated between Marwell Zoo (30 mins) and Peppa Pig world (15 mins) which were the main reason for our stay.
The shower in the ensuite bathroom is glorious! The rooms are beautifully decorated and very clean.
The cottage is spacious and has everything needed for a relaxing stay.
I marked one star down just because of lack of wifi and phone signal which David the owner says will be something he will look in to. We bought BT wifi though and that covered us.
David was fantastic and kept in contact during the stay for anything we needed. We arrived late due to my daughter being poorly so lost 2 nights of our holiday and David offered us a night free of charge as the cottage wasn't booked the next day. You can't beat that kind of hospitality.
Thanks for a lovely stay Rufus Cottage! We will be back
A truly fantastic find. Within 5 minutes of being in the cottage my children were telling me we should live here. A beautiful location literally on the doorstep of the New Forest. A car definitely not required! Every amenity that you could possibly need and all good quality. We are already planning a return.
Cottage looks exactly as it does in the photos, very clean and up to date decor, kitchen and bathrooms very good. Location is perfect with a main line station a minutes walk away. Excellent pub on the doorstep. No noise problems with either the railway or the pub. Landlord very friendly and nothing was too much trouble for him. I would highly recommend this property.
