A magnificent setting for our Golden Wedding celebration
This arts and crafts style house was in all respects comfortable and enjoyable. The extensive grounds were so attractive that we did not leave to explore the New Forest at all! All facilities were excellent, and the grandchildren especially enjoyed the pool table.

An amazing house full of charm in a fairyland setting
A beautiful base for our mini holiday with family and friends. Fantastic garden and wildlife - we even spotted ourselves a hunter in the garden! Kids loved the driveway area for their scooters and the privacy of the gate made us grown ups feel safe to let them explore the grounds (with walkie-talkies) 😁

Beautiful house and setting.
This a lovely peaceful place to stay. Six adults, two boys and one baby - and we all had plenty of room over our four-day stay. We went to celebrate my 70th birthday.
The interior is elegant but homely, warm and comfortable. There's a drying room from the back door, so very useful for wet clothing. The house is very well-equipped. There are some beautiful features (Arts and Crafts window catches, brickwork,etc.)
Outside, the grounds are lovely with a range of shrubs, mature trees and little paths. There are electric gates just for this property, which make it very safe for children. We cooked en famille but can recommend the Koh Thai in Ringwood.

Great large 4 bed venue - Loveyly gardens & house
Deep in the new forrest - house is set in it's own gardents - we rented the wing which had 4 bedrooms - one a tripple with a big double and a single and en-quite shower. Other 3 rooms were small doubles, though one big enough for a travel cot. There's a family bathroom upstairs, and a cloakroom downstairs. Well equipped kitchen with microwave, dishwasher and washing machine. Towels were provided. Everything clean and tidy - nice big main living room with TV, DVD (and a snooker table under the dining table!) - set in beautiful, huge gardens, which we were allowed to wander and great for kids exploring - frinedly owners. Main gate to road was closeable too, handy to stop our toddler finding here way onto the road (though it's a very quiet road - the big gardens have fairly steep hills and lots of places to hide, which meant we still had to keep a close eye on her as she loves to run and hide!). Had a great time - highly recommended.
