We stayed for one night in this gem of a place. We were warmly greeted by Vanessa and George (and of course their delightful dog Alfie!) with some delicious lemon cake. The accommodation is separate from the house and with all amenities. The bed was really comfortable, the room was warm and cosy and with lots of space including a... more

Lovely to have met you both on your minibreak to the New Forest. Thank you for your kind review, Best Wishes Vanessa more

We were in the area for a family funeral in Bournemouth but wanted a base nearby to unwind for a couple of days afterwards whilst near such a beautiful corner of the... more

Thank you for spending the time to write a review. Very glad to hear that you had a lovely time with us, despite the reason why you were visiting. Hopefully will see you both again in the future. Best Wishes Vanessa. more

Management response:

However I was disappointed to hear that you felt that your stay lacked the seclusion which you were hoping for. I have always felt that the photographs on the Holiday... more
