    Rental Home – 
    2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4
    A newly converted holiday cottage/lodge in a peaceful rural setting with it's own private, dog-proof garden. No traffic, no street lights, plenty of space and lovely wooded walks in all directions.

    The west-facing garden is a sun trap and perfect for barbecuing as the sun goes down. Inside, the brand new kitchen has all the conveniences including a washing machine and dishwasher. The sunny master bedroom has a sumptuous 5' double bed, down pillows and en-suite toilet. The smaller bedroom has bunk beds for the kids but fine for adults too. There is a second toilet and shower room. Nice extras include guest dressing gowns, hair dryer, ironing board (and iron!), books and games. All linen and towels are provided and a welcome basket of first-day essentials will greet you on arrival....

    How to get there
    Final directions to October House SP6 3HW - can be useful as Satnavs only gets you so far and usually takes you down Cornpits Lane - don't! October House is the 3rd house on the left AFTER Cornpits Lane. (There are over 20 houses in South End with the same post code)

    Coming from Fordingbridge.
    At the mini roundabout at the bottom of the high street, go up the High Street (signed to Alderholt and Damerham)and continue along that road, without turning off, through Sandle Heath and on to Damerham (approx 2 miles). Come down the hill into Damerham and pass the Compasses pub on your left, over bridge, take first left turn sign posted to the School and Lower Daggons.

    NB sat navs will take you down Church Lane and across the marsh. This is a short cut but is very narrow and pot holed...

Absolutely brilliant. Lovely room with a very comfy bed... ally was great, couldn't have asked for more, and knows how to cook a mean breakfast to get you going in the mornings. Only let down for us was the weather. more

Management response:

What can I say but thank you for such a great review! I am so glad you enjoyed your stay and please do come and stay again when the B&B has turned into a holiday cottage! Ally more

We stayed at October House for 2 nights during the half term holiday with our 4 year old daughter. It was a perfect getaway from busy schedule. Peaceful location. Ally has made us feel very welcome. The room was very cosy, clean and spacious, much bigger from standard hotel rooms! First day we had breakfast at the local pub nearby... more

This was the first family holiday for my partner and I with our 9 month old daughter, so it was important that we had a holiday that we could look back on fondly. We stayed for 9 nights and thanks to the superb location of October House, the excellent facilities and the warm hospitality of our hosts (and their animals)... more
