Arranged a surprise weekend to celebrate a special birthday and had a fantastic stay!
Very warm welcome to the beautiful house. The gardens were beautiful and enjoyed by all especially our children!
Great location on the edge of the New Forest, close to Ringwood so plenty to do .
Will defiantly be back in the future for another relaxing stay.
Beautiful house and gardens. Great welcome from Jayne and Chris. Very comfortable stay. Great location on the edge of the New Forest and close to Ringwood. Our second time here, and lived up to expectations both times. We like the way we can book just the few days we needed rather than having to book a full week, which make a venue like this affordable.
My husband and I plus 6 friends stayed at Gaddons for 3 nights to celebrate Xmas as we all have family commitments at Xmas.We had a great time and it really is a beautiful place and surroundings and so much to do locally.We were disappointed that the owners hadn't put a Xmas tree up as it is usual in rented cottages in December.Also we were so looking forward to the log burner but when we arrived the lounge was full of black smoke and the owners daughter said that a birds nest had fallen down it.She said don't worry we can get the chimney sweep in tomorrow.But the next day she told us she couldn't.We were gutted and really cross they hadn't tried to light it the day before to ensure all was working.The last guests before us stayed in October and so when we arrived the house was freezing I mean literally artic.It was so cold we had to sit with blankets round us in a lounge still steeped in black smoke,pretty miserable! It took 24hrs to warm the house up and this could have been avoided if the heating had been put on a few hours before our arrival.Lastly for a group our size the kitchen was way too small and trying to cook a massive roast dinner was a challenge.Beautiful place and great value but sadly lacking in the finner detail and welcome.
This accommodation was the wing of a large house set in extensive woodland. It was spacious and comfortable and for a cold autumnal period we enjoyed good central heating and the luxury of a wood burning stove - every house should have one! The kitchen was well equipped , the beds very comfortable and ensuite and main bathrooms modern and functional. On top of all this we were warmly welcomed by our host

We thoroughly enjoyed exploring the extensive gardens and the inside space was welcoming and spacious. The house's location was perfect for our family as it was close to all the main attractions. Thank you Chris and Jayne for a fantastic stay.
